Healthy Dose of Vitamin D
It was a beautiful day, so we decided that it would be nice to go out for a little walk and get some Vitamin D! Reed has been feeling a little sniffly and he has a strange, roving fever from his MMR immunization. That being said, sadly, this post has NO SMILES in it!
We took Reed to the play area in our subdivision. Reed was completely uninterested in anything that did not involve either his mother or me holding him. He was not thrilled with the slide as you can see.
He was most happy when we were holding him close. Clinginess that comes when babies are not feeling their best is a two-edged sword. It is really sweet and you always want to be cuddled, but on the flip side, it makes getting anything done impossible.
We were excited that Reed finally got to wear his DBU t-shirt. Abbey got her Master's from DBU. I don't think that we'll see a picture of Reed a shirt from my grad school alma mater. It would be hard to put "Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary" on a baby t-shirt.
Tomorrow is supposed to be an even prettier day. Maybe Reed will get to go out for another spin in his convertible.
This is a rare peak at Reed grabbing his left ear. We found out at his checkup the other day that he had a mild ear infection in his left ear. We would have never known otherwise. We've been trying to pay attention to him grabbing it, but it doesn't happen very often.
Since he has a fever and sniffles, I am going to stay home from church with him tomorrow. Ms. Candace is teaching the preteens for me tomorrow, but Abbey has to teacher her 3rd and 4th graders.
It's amazing how the pretty day did not make ANY of us smile. I guess we are all so tired from being sick this week that we are all pooped out. Poor Abbey even went to work tonight. I bet she is going to be really tired tomorrow. But, I also think that she is probably enjoying being out of the house for a while.
Reed didn't like it when we tried to get him to pose on the picnic table.
Reed went to bed pretty easily tonight, he got sick about an hour later with coughing. I laid down with him in the bed in his room for a little while and he settled down quickly.
Sometimes, he will refuse to go back into his bed after his been in once, so that means that you either let him sleep with you or you let him cry a little while. After making sure that he was okay, I had to do the latter. He cried softly for a few minutes and then went to sleep. However, one of our neighbors must have some visitors driving a big old chevy with an extra set of pipes and they enjoy revving them up every five minutes. If it wakes Reed up, I'm gonna have to go tell them something.
Note: Like I would ever really go out and do that!
