poor little bean

i got a call yesterday mid-morning from MIL, who wanted to let me know that the bean was listless and running a low-grade fever. sadness. we've been really lucky with her - she's rarely sick and still manages to stay cheerful on those rare occasions when she is under the weather.

and sure enough, when i arrived home, i could hear her chatting and laughing as i walked up the stairs. she'd gotten a dose of ibuprofen, was eating lunch, and was mostly her merry self. see?

but as the afternoon wore on, the meds wore off and she got cranky and drowsy. i managed to get her to fall asleep for a little while, and we went about our usual routine.

it was a restless night, though. she couldn't get comfortable and tossed and turned and cried through most of it, and it was tough. i just wanted to take it all away, but there was nothing i could do but hold her and murmur that everything would be okay. i was so sad to leave for work this morning with her still feeling like crap.

let's just say that i'm starting my day off with a big ass iced drink from starbucks.

  1. I'm sorry the bean doesn't feel well, and that you didn't get much sleep last night. Hopefully she bounces right back!

    The pics are really cute. I love her chubby cheeks.

  4. There is totally something going around right now - both the hubs and I had it, my coworkers had it, and now my mom has it. Sending the bean lots of chicken soupy vibes.
