I know I’ve been a little MIA and it’s all because of some nasty sickness. I got a weird cough about seven weeks ago and thought it was just allergies but the cough got really deep in my chest and turned into walking pneumonia. I tried to shake it with all the natural remedies at first because I am still breastfeeding but it didn’t work. THANKFULLY we have doctors right?! They told me yesterday that I have been downgraded to just bronchitis and diagnosed me with asthma (who would have thought?!)….and hopefully this fourth antibiotic and steroid will knock it out completely. I have literally never been that sick. And I also felt ridiculous for being sick. I got a job to do right? And five kids? And all the stuff for the end of the school year? Ain’t nobody have time for coughing up….well….you don’t want to know.
The point is…I wanted to turn my sour situation into a good one…so one day I had lemons for my tea (I’ve not had a cup of coffee in almost a month! I can’t wait!) and decided to take a bunch of pictures of Ella. I promised myself that when I felt like I needed a pick-me-up that I would post them. So this is it. I hope that they cheer you up too!
I know there are a million photos….I just couldn’t narrow it down more. Each photo shows me something new….a sweet little roll or her rubber band wrists or the way her little eyes light up or chubby baby fingers. I can’t help but post every.single.one. Each one cheers me up….gives me breath…and when you struggling with that, feeling that weight on your chest and panic in your heart…that is the very best medicine 🙂
Adorable pix – hoping you feel better soon. My husband recently had pneumonia & decided to share it with me! At one point we we’re both in the hospital on separate floors & my son had to fly in from NY to take care of BOTH of us! Just know that this too shall pass & better days are ahead!

You guy honestly make the most beautiful babies. Hope you feel better soon! Meds for the win!
Hope you feel better soon! I was diagnosed with asthma a few months after I had my first baby. Thankfully after 6 years and some diet changes, I’ve been able to overcome it. Hang in there!
She is the absolute sweetest. Beautiful photos. I hope you are 100% again soon! Hang in there!
OMG ADORABLE! You have to share where you got her lemon romper. My 3 month old neeeeeds it!!
She is so cute! I love the lemon outfit with the lemons. I hope you’re totally over this nasty illness soon– it sounds awful, and you’re right, no one has time for that! Especially at the end of the school year and with 5 littles to take care of!
Katie! You poor thing. I’m sending all th healing vibes your way. These pictures!!!! Is she not perfection? Love them all, she’s adorable with all the yellow and her red hair!

Well I hope you are feeling better soon….like seven weeks ago soon! Also, this little Ella is the cutest ever ever ever ever. I’ve always thought that she is reminding me of Max–I think it’s those eyes. Adorable. And lemons?! OMG, even cuter!!!!!

She’s beautiful and such a mood brightener! Hope you’ll feel better fast!
Awe, I hope you feel 100% soon! Ella is such a cutie; I love all your pics!!!
Katie…..those pictures are adorable!!! Ella is so cute….in all poses! I am a sucker for the ones that have a little drool running down, as she is so intent on looking at those lemons.
Hope you will be on the mend, and who couldn’t be, looking at that beautiful little girl!!!
Get well and thanks for sharing the photos.
Yuck for feeling sick but yay for lemons! I have a lemon tree and have used them for props for my kids pictures so many times! What is it about babies and lemons that make your heart melt?

Nothing sour here! All sweetness! Adorable. Feel better soon! Try some hot water with lemon and honey in it for a remedy. 🙂
Such a sweet girl! I love the wonder in her eyes while she is examining them. Hope the meds work!

Oh my goodness! I could just eat her! As I’m scrolling through instagram in the evenings, I routinely make my husband look at pictures of your children. They are just so ridiculously cute! Like little baby dolls. Good job, mama.
Thank you so much. That is one adorable baby!!!
Take care….wishing you a speedy and complete recovery! Love those pictures of your beautiful baby girl!
Her face just makes me melt! What a beautiful baby girl you have. Hope you’re back to 100% very soon! Take care when ya can!
These photos are so very wonderful – they brought a big smile to my face. She is beautiful.
She is so precious Katie! Just when I think she can’t possibly get any cuter lol!
I hope the mini-photo session helped you feel a bit more “normal” during all this sickness. Allergies etc have been awful this spring here in Ohio, too.
Thanks for sharing!!
Oh my gosh is she adorable!! Feel better soon.

These are just so sweet. Thanks for posting them! Seeing photos like these are fun as I await a summer baby, and a girl this time! I had a winter boy last go-round so it gets me excited for #2!
