Leave of absence


Yes, I realize I've taken a leave of absence from this little blog lately. Here's what's been going down:
  • Asher got a cold about a month ago. Stopped sleeping through the night after a week or so of worsening congestion. Mom and Dad are exhausted.
  • Asher got a bit better about two weeks ago, then came down with another cold. Throw some antibiotics in there, and some diarrhea and you get weight loss and a miserable baby. On top of the cold. And  worn our parents. And a worried, frustrated mom.
  • Still not sleeping through the night. 
  • One night he woke up in a coughing frenzy. I ran to the bathroom, turned on the hot water. Walked him to clean out his nose and strip down and sat in the shower stall for an hour. Scared the crap out of me.
  • We're now four weeks into this cold, and Rusty pointed out that Asher's been sick for a quarter of his life. How pitiful is that?
  • Oh, and I got both colds, too.
  • And the doctors office pretty much knows us by name now.
  • Four month check up yesterday shows Asher's head (err, brain) measuring huge and his body measuring small. I don't think that him being small is too surprising considering he's been sick for a month. The last week he's been waking and wanting to eat every two hours and has put on almost a whole pound in that week. So, we'll see how that progresses when we are healthy.
  • He's more adorable than ever. Rolling, giggling, smiling, eating cereal. 
And here we are at today. Asher's sleeping a lot after the vaccinations yesterday and his nose sounds a little better. So, here's hoping we're on the path to recovery (until the next round). Bless him.
