Sick and Tired

***Warning: "Debbie-Downer" post below--read at your own risk!!***
Is that not the saddest face?!? Caroline is sick and tired of being sick and tired!! It has been one.rough.week!! Seriously, folks, it's been tough. It all began with some lovely top molar teething-trauma. Who knew that molars were so painful?!? Actually, I had heard it was pretty bad, but I still wasn't prepared. Then, to top it all off, Caroline came down with a horrible "fever virus" (that's what the pediatrician is calling it) and has been having temps up to 103 degrees.
Sleep is a thing of the past and we are all exhausted. These kind of weeks sure do leave a mommy (and baby and daddy :-) feeling very worn out. Hopefully, it will all be over soon. And in the spirit of rough weeks, check out my friend, Nikki's, post. It's awesome and she says a lot of what I'm feeling better than I could articulate.
I'm praying Caroline feels better soon so this sad face will be full of big smiles once again!!

Yuck...I'm so sorry. And we are TOTALLY doing the same thing! First, teeth, now a fever, runny nose, cough, etc. (our dr. said cold). And Em has it too. I'll be praying for y'all!!!

can i encourage you also by saying that the top 1 year old molars are by far the worst? mug cut his all 4--top and bottom-- AT ONCE!! it was the worst time ever at our house for illness--he ran a fever, did not eat for a month,had a constant runny nose, and was up at 5 am (usually slept until 8:15!) every morning! ahhh! AND i was early pregnant. sheesh. i get flustered just remembering that! ha!

also, he had the "fever" virus when he was 8 months old. it was roseola. it lasted 7 days straight--how weird??

anyway, i am so happy you found my blog b/c now i can read yours! you look the same as you did in college--so cute and petite! and your little sweetie is PRECIOUS!!!!

Even when she is sick she is so cute! Sorry she is sick. That is never fun.
It's funny Nicki mentioned Roseola b/c that's exactly what I thought of when I read this. Jacob got it, fever for a few days, nothing bringing it down, then a few days later a rash all over the body. Tiny red dots. Anyway- Caroline may not have that (you'll know in a few days) but it's funny we both thought about that.
Hang in there Mama.
