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.
