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 🙂
