It seems like the only posts I get around to lately are 'life lately' posts. I guess that's what happens, well, when life happens.
We've had a full year so far with potty training (which is going awesome and not so much 'training' anymore), an exciting project I have in the works (seriously, so exciting and scary all at once! Can't wait to share) and just the day to day stuff.
Last week was a bit crazier than normal. Autumn was up a lot Saturday night then woke up with a fever Sunday morning. She didn't have any other symptoms but when I saw one giant molar and 3 others just under the surface I was sure it was teething. Then she still had the fever worse that night through Monday and we knew it was not her teeth but had no clue what it was. Monday night was the worst. She was feeling so miserable with fever that she was up from 10pm until 4:30am. Around 4am her fever finally broke but she was up a couple hours later and we headed to the doctor.
Since she was symptom free otherwise, they said it was probably just a virus but to go back if she got any other symptoms. The rest of the week she was ok, just clingy/grumpy/sleepy and not sleeping great (or late) at night. Friday she woke up at 5:30 with a rash all over and hives on her bottom and legs. I freaked out a bit (ok, a lot!) but, she seemed fine otherwise. We went back to the doctor that afternoon and the doctor looked at her rash and said 'Great, she's doing great. It's just Roseola and this is the last of it.' Ummm...ok. Basically, it's a virus that causes a sudden high fever, then suddenly drops, then ends with a rash. I hadn't even heard of this virus before. But it was gone before we even knew what it was, haha. Good thing is, she will never have to go through this again since she now has immunity from it.
Poor little babe still isn't 100%, try as she might. She's just been very mellow, little appetite and just kind of quiet. She hasn't even asked to watch Frozen! Hopefully she'll be back to normal this week!
We had plans with friends for Saturday night from a few weeks ago. Since she was mostly better, we decided to go and Autumn stayed in good hands with my parents. Also with the thought that we'd get to catch up on sleep. Well, sleep was not had but lots of fun was! It was great to get out with some old friends and just let loose. We were feeling less than stellar the morning after and I was basically nursing a hangover all day. It was a strong (and humbling) reminder that I am no longer 20 something!
|No idea why I felt like shit Sunday.|
The past week I haven't been able to get much of anything done with Autumn being sick. She was such a doll and took a much needed 3.5 hour nap and I was able to do some meal prep for the week and start painting my old dresser turned new office storage. Once she woke up, she was feeling much better and helped me paint the dresser. She was so cute saying 'I mom. I'm working.' Neither of us cared too much about the Superbowl (or getting dressed to leave the house) so we just hung out at home while Ernest went to our friends SB party til halftime. We did manage to watch the halftime show (wootwoot Missy Elliot!) and the last 1.5 minute of the game. That's all you really need, right?
Here's hoping for a full recovery for Autumn, health for us all and some fun Valentines projects coming up!
