I'm actually only a survivor because I have been so blessed with the ability to survive! It sounds like most households are battling the nasty winter bugs that are floating around and our house was not forgotten. Between my two children, we have dealt with someone being sick continually for the last 3 weeks. I am not one to take my children to the doctor...most of the time I feel like they send you home and you have just wasted valuable resting time. John and I just do our best as parents and we end up doing a lot of snuggling, medicating, wiping, and rocking! It's so sad to see your babies uncomfortable! Isabella loves nursing and she especially loves to nurse in the middle of the night! On average she wakes up 3 times a night to enjoy her favorite snack and then she gets a good tuck back into her cozy bed! It's been this way ever since she was born (almost 1 year). John is so sweet to her and gets so sad when she cries...so we don't let her cry! I can handle this...if she goes right back to sleep! With her being sick, she is feeding and then crying, crying, crying, and crying! Hailey is also making her appearance a few times a night which means that I do not sleep very much! So...I am a survivor because everyday I am able to get up after cat napping all night and carry on with our busy day! I know that my Heavenly Father has blessed me to get through this hard time and I am so thankful for that. I know that I have so many important things to do in a day and I appreciate that I am not alone!
