I gave my first talk in our congregation tonight. Olivia had a stuffy nose and one of her eyes wouldn’t stop tearing up so Jamie stayed home with her. Once I got home, he informed me that she had thrown up but she was acting fine so I nursed her to sleep with no problem. About an hour later while we were watching TV in the other room, I heard what I thought was O coughing. I ran in and it was her wheezing and having really labored breathing. She also felt warm so I called the nurse line immediately. Our first trip to the ER and MRI confirmed Croup. One dose of steroids and my little O was back to normal playing.
Seeing her having such a hard time breathing with so scary. She only had the “bark cough” while we were at the ER and it went away right after the steroid dose. It was also the first fever O has had. I am so thankful that we at least made it a whole year before making a trip to the ER and O having any major health issues!

Being small has it’s advantages… like going behind things you aren’t supposed to.
All I do lately is follow Olivia around from room to room and pick up the messes….
While Jamie gets to play in Vegas for the week, I get to take care of a teething baby. Joys. Somehow my view doesn’t look as great.

Guess who turned one today! My sweet Olivia Rose. This year you have made me a better person and I hope that you keep teaching me. Being a mom is the best thing ever and I’m just so fortunate that you are my daughter. You are the sweetest, silliest, most fun little girl in the whole wide world. You are so beautiful, your blue eyes and 8 teeth smile light up the room! This year has been incredible and we can’t wait to see what each new day brings with you in it. Love you little string bean!
My poor little baby was attacked by Mosquito’s yesterday. She woke up with horrible welts and raised skin. It looked so sad but she didn’t even seem bothered by them or cry! When I talked to her Ped on the phone, they said it was very common in our coastal area. So scary! Benadryl and hydrocortisone were prescribed to calm the bites. She is one tough cookie! If I had over 15 bites on each leg, I would be crying and screaming.
