Goodbye Germs, Hello Healthy

2013 was full of sickness for our family. Mostly, little guy and I. I was really hoping that it would get better in the new year. So much for hoping. 

The last week and a half was full of Connor and I being sick, passing around the same cold or allergy. I can say that if 2014 is as germ infested as last year, I'm going to clock out and say the Hell with it. Serious. It's no joke. 

As any parent can agree, having a sick child is no fun but it's even worse when there is nothing you can do to remedy it. Not only did C seem to just not get better, it was effecting his sleep. We had finally gotten to the point where he would sleep all night when a new cold attacked and the poor guy couldn't breath, let alone sleep. It's been a real treat, let me say. I don't do well being tired. It's my one vice so doing without it has been awful. Poor me, right? 

Poor kid has gotten one cold/virus or allergy attack after another that he now has to use an inhaler to work through a reactive lung disease he has. Have you ever tried to give an inhaler to a very active and stubborn 14 month old? Not fun, right? The good thing, he doesn't need the inhaler any longer and the cough he has is all but gone. 

Certainly there would be an end to our sickies, right? That end finally came yesterday. CJ is 100% thanks to daily allergy medicines (thanks Cedar Fever) and I'm feeling good. I couldn't feel better any sooner either as I start an 8 week workout/Bible study this Friday. Additionally, Mister left yesterday for business and will be gone all week.

We are feeling so good that I pulled out the big camera for a little photo shoot this weekend with my model baby. It's been a long time since I've used Annie and I'm pretty excited about the shots I got of C.

  
I may be completely 100% biased but is he not the cutest dang boy you've ever laid eyes on?

  6. We are going through a nasty cycle of sickness that sounds a lot like yours. Just when I think we are in the clear, and back to good sleep habits, another cold hits. I'm over it.
    Glad to hear you all are feeling better.
    C is pretty stinking cute!

  8. I love his eyes. I remember when my daughter was that little and she would get sick. I hated that there wasn't anything I could do.

  14. We barely got through one nebulizer treatment with a five year old, I can't imagine an inhaler with a 14 month old!
