There is one thing I know about having a sick baby: I will feel horrible.

Emotionally I will hurt because my baby is sick and there is minimal that I can do about it. Physically I will be exhausted because I will be up a good part of the night rocking, cooing and urging him that the best way to get better is to just close his little eyes and go back to sleep.

It's 6 a.m. and we are currently sitting on the couch watching Mickey Mouse and drinking water. I'm exhausted but the best sleep he seemed to get through the night was when I was sitting up so he could sleep on my chest - so that's how I stayed. He didn't really sleep much otherwise. I think it's just a small cold or virus. He's running a low grade temperature and has a stuffy nose and cough. He doesn't seem to be feeling completely horrible, he's still active, running around the house and playing like normal, he just never sleeps well when he's stuffed up (who does?). I really hope he feels better soon, I hate when my baby is sick in any way.

I've been working on getting my Etsy shop stocked once again. I used to keep it full of items that could be custom made - and I can still take custom made orders -  but I ran into the issue that I would sell 2 or 3 orders at once and I would be working my hands off trying to get them all made and shipped as quick as possible. So for now, I'm planning on keeping mostly pre-made items in the shop. This way if someone orders something, I can throw it into a box/envelope, run it to the post office and be done. It's so much easier!

We also set our official vacation dates. We will be leaving for Florida on the 12th of April, staying in the condo there from the 13th to the 20th and then making our way home on the 21st. I'm so excited to take Henry to the beach again (and hopefully get some pictures this time). He loved it so much the first time! I'm ready for the vacation too, although I'm not ready for the long drive or the coming home part, haha!

Today is the last day of February which means my brother turns 17 either today or tomorrow. He's a leap year baby so I just leave that decision up to him every year. I can't believe I'm even saying that - 17. Someone pinch me and tell me it's just a dream. Love you Levi, Happy Birthday!!

It's Thursday which means it's time for Why I Love My Husband (The Never-ending List)

19) He brought me tea home from work yesterday - just to be nice.
20) He says ‘thank you’ and he says it often.
21) He trusts my judgment on pretty much everything.
22) He knows exactly how to calm my fears and anxieties.
23) He fixes my broken car and never complains because I break it quite often.


  1. Love this! Great hubby you have :)

  2. You poor guys. I hope he is feeling better soon. It's so hard when they are sick because they have those cute little sick puppy dog eyes.

    I hope you have a great vacation and I can't wait to see pictures...I LOVE the beach!! If someday I become rich...HA...I will buy a home right on the ocean front!


    1. I can't wait to GO! I love the beach too. I had never been to the ocean before Jeremy and we went to Daytona for our honeymoon, so now I feel like I have this really deep connection to the sun, sand and water. And I'm right there with you - if I get rich, I'm building right next to you!

  3. Poor little man! I hope he gets to feeling 100% soon.
    Marcus is the same way. When he is sick the only place he sleeps in snuggled up on my chest. Mommy's are the best medicine. :)
    Your trip sounds amazing! Have you started a countdown? I'm such a freak when it comes to stuff like that, I have a countdown for everything it seems.

    1. Mommies ARE the best medicine! I'm horrible about keeping up with countdowns... but it's something like 45 days away. =)

  4. Poor Henry, I hope he feels better!! Yay for vacation though, you deserve it my friend. :)

    1. Aww... thanks Jen! I'm not sure I actually deserve it, but I know that I want it!


You don't know just how lovely you are...thank you.
