Ava has been cracking me up lately. She just pointed to her nipple in the bathtub and squealed "boobeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee". Ha! I can't tell if it was even more hilarious because of her doped up look (more on this in a minute) or what, but it was awesome.

Unfortunately, A is sick :( She woke up with a barking cough in the middle of the night, and was coughing to the point of having labored breathing. Funny (?) story: I took a muscle relaxer last night because I slept wrong the night before, and literally, it was so bad I couldn't even check my blind spot. No joke. Anyhow, I'd never taken one before, and so after making sure it was nursing compatible (it was) I took one, expecting nothing to happen. An hour later, I was SOUND ASLEEP. Two hours later, A woke up with the coughing fit, and I was so insanely out of it. Seriously, I had no idea what D was talking about. Add to that the fact that he's a chronic over reactor, and his exclamation that he thought her windpipe was closing (such a drama king!) had me hysterical until I finally came to and realized she was not, in fact, dying a quick, asthmatic death. What an idiot.

Anyhow, long story less long, we hauled A into the doc this morning to find out she had croup (which we figured last night at the sound of her cough), as well as a touch of laryngitis and bronchitis. She doesn't get sick often, but when she does, geez does she ever go all out! Ten days of antibiotics to go :(

Thankfully, aside from her watery, running eyes and nighttime cough, she seems to be feeling decent enough now, so David's playing hooky tomorrow and we're taking a day trip to San Antonio. Woohoo!


  1. Oh no poor A!! Croup is the pits for sure (sooo scary when you first hear it!). Glad she's doing better. That's hilarious about the boobeeeee....Noah's kind of obsessed with his chest and mine...he pokes me all the time and I swear he said boob at one point...who teaches him that!?

  2. Poor Ava.... B had croup once and we couldn't wait until morning we freaked out!!!!! It's never fun when baby is sick and I hope she gets better fast fast fast!!! Have fun in San Antonio!!!

  3. Ugh! No fun! Presley and I both have pretty bad colds, and her cough is pretty nasty. Not croup though, thank goodness. I hope Ava makes a super speedy recovery!!! Boooobees, lol!!! Love it. Presley calls hers "chi chi's". I dont know whyni taught her that. Im sure it will come back to bite me in the a$$. I've been behind on blogs, but Ava is such a big girl now! So pretty:)
