M is sick. Not the teething kind – the real kind. He’s had colds before, but this is different. He’s had a fever (broken with some Tylenol), has lost his appetite, took a super long nap, and throws up quite a bit. He’s not seeming dehydrated, but I’ve been feeding him quite a bit to make sure that doesn’t happen. Amazingly though – he is still quite happy! There are moments of instant tears for no reason (other than assuming he feels crappy), but for the most part, he’s been pretty content.
My nephew’s 10th birthday is tomorrow. I cannot believe it! He is the first grandchild on my side of the family and I was thinking today about the phone call I got when he was born. It was so special and fun to be getting a nephew! The name they chose for him was not on their list, so when my BIL told me his name, I was stunned and questioned back, “IAN?” He thought I didn’t like it. I loved it! I still do – a lovely name for the first little boy who stole my heart! Double digits for Ian – time flies by so quickly!
B is out of town until Thursday, so it’s just M and me for the next two days. Is it selfish that I sort of love my time alone with him? Seems kind of silly considering that I spend every single day with M – but I do love any extra one-on-one time that I get. As I learned with Ian, babies grow all too quickly and M will be 10 before I know it!
