No Sick Days For Mom

Luckily, this little girl has been super good the past couple of days.  She suddenly appreciates her pacifier.  She's sleeping like a champ.  And she's been content to hang out in her swing while I do nothing and sit on the couch.

(She's not sad here.  Just mesmerized by the camera.)

And thank goodness for a husband who has gone to the grocery store for medicine, cleaned up our house no less than 10 times (I tend to be untidy when I'm sick), cooked, and taken care of Ellie.

Now I just hope she doesn't get sick, too.

Stroller Ride

Somebody is big enough to sit in her stroller like a big girl!

She's Smarter Than I Thought...

So, it turns out I have one of those kids.  You know, the kind that manipulates her parents without them even knowing it.

See, little Miss Ellie has some nights where she sleeps great.  Others...not so much.  So yesterday at her 4 Month Checkup, the doctor said she was old enough to cry it out as long as we go in to reassure her every 10-15 minutes.

And wouldn't you know it, last night she slept her longest stretch yet.

I swear she heard him say I could let her cry and decided she was too good for that.  "I'll just sleep all night and avoid the whole thing."  I'm sure that's what went through her mind.

Oh well.  I'll take what I can get.
