i need him to get better.

Poor little Bennet is so sick. His nose is streaming snot, he is coughing, and scariest of all, he is doing this very rattly, raspy breathing that is scaring me to death. Fortunately he has zero fever, and is in incredibly good spirits for a sick little baby. He's smiling and playing and babbling away and doesn't even seem to realize that he isn't healthy.

Last night, I had a crying mommy breakdown about how
worried I am about him. Andrew went out and bought a humidifier made by Vicks that releases steam that has vapors in it like Vapo-Rub. It seems to be helping - his nursery is full of healing, steamy air. We're keeping the door shut at all times to keep it all in there for him!

According to Dr. Bucci, we're doing everything we can. He doesn't have a fever. He's happy. He's eating, although not as much as normal. Our plan is to keep giving him Mortin and Tylenol and keep checking his temperature and hope he pulls out of it soon!

The cute part is how absolutely sweet and clingy he is. He even fell asleep on my chest in the rocking chair last night. I was in mommy heaven.

If you're reading this, take a little second and say a little prayer that Monkey gets well soon!

I hope Bennett is breathing easier. It's such a heartbreaking sound (a congested baby). Get better little guy!
