Jumping back into reality this week was a bit hard for me. I love spending day after day with my little man. It usually takes a while after a long break from work before I feel normal again. At least Dan has been home with Elijah this week (no daycare and no school), so I have been able to run home for lunch a couple times for some mid-day snuggles.
Speaking of snuggles, or "suggles," as Elijah calls them, the LoveSac is always the coziest place to hang out in our home, especially in the winter. Elijah has recently discovered this. And between the hours of 7:00 and 9:00 p.m., you can find ME buried somewhere in the LoveSac's folds of glorious comfort.
Elijah caught another tiny cold last weekend that mostly just hung out in his nose. Then he caught another cold on Tuesday that worked its way down into his chest and airway. And his little body continues to endure The Cough. I thought we might be able to avoid long visits from that annoying guest this winter, but he has been faithfully hanging out in Elijah's body since Thanksgiving. We are praying for another nice reprieve! I do have to say, Cough still hasn't come close to disturbing our lives as much as he did last winter. Not even close. We have only had to get out the nebulizer a handful of times this year. Last year we had it out multiple times every single day for basically eight straight months.
This is the face Elijah makes when he is saying, "NOOO!"
And my little brother will be sooo jealous when he reads this. The super soft blanket that you see in these photos was one of my Christmas gifts this year. It's a Snuggie! With pockets!!
We hope everyone is having a good week and enjoying the last little bit of 2009! Thanks for checking in on us!
