Ember is sick for the first time. She woke up at 6 this morning with a stuffed up nose and a grumbling, hungry tummy. When she tried to latch on to eat, she started to cry because she couldn't breathe. It was obvious she was a little scared, very hungry and exhausted. While Andrew and I were consoling her through her small meltdown, she smiled at us through her tears. I love her spirit so much! Honestly, I can't help but be impressed by her. She doesn't even know how to sniffle and she's handling this cold like a champ.
After a few good sneezes, enough blockage was cleared that was able to eat. She latched on, nursed to sleep and dozed for another three hours. Waking up at 9:30, she was breathing (almost) clearly through her nose and was fever free!
Here's a clip of Miss E in her Jolly Jumper this morning. Note the tongue sticking out in concentration; she gets that from her daddy.
Have a great weekend everyone!!!
