It has been a while since I have had a chance to blog. Last week was a slight mess, with Bella fighting her first cold and Lance having an illness of his own. I was fortunate enough to not get sick, but tending to the two of them was tiring in its own right!
Since it was Bella’s first cold, we also had our first test in figuring out how to handle it. The poor girl was sneezing and coughing and her whole nose was congested. She had some rough nights of sleep, waking up 4-5 times a night. We went out and bought a humidifier, became best friends with her Nosefrida snot sucker, and monitored her for a fever that luckily never developed. Thankfully, the cold has pretty much passed, although she still has a bit of a cough.
Yesterday, Bella received her school “uniform”. We are loving her daycare so far, and it’ll be great once she can actually fit into the short-sleeve onesie, long-sleeve onesie, and jacket that she was given yesterday.
On Friday, daycare lets out early so that parents can pick their kids up and take them over to the local senior center for the International Party. Bella’s class is “dancing” to La Bamba and all of the girls are wearing adorable spanish dresses sewn for them by her teacher. I’m so excited for the cuteness and will be posting pictures as soon as I can!
