Sick Baby

For the past couple of weeks I have been linking up on Wednesdays with Hill at Capturing Motherhood. She hosts a link up called picture me {im}perfectly. In the blog world it's easy to get discouraged when you see all the other Moms out there who seem to be doing everything right. You think to yourself how can that woman possibly have made cupcakes from scratch, sewn all new throw pillows, have perfectly blown out hair and wrangle 3 children under 5 all before dinner time. Thanks to Hill we can now showcase that we don't have it all together all the time and embrace other woman who are in the same boat as us.

I thought this week that I would have nothing to post for Picture Me {Im}perfectly. That all changed when the baby woke up around 1:15 am yesterday morning and did not want to go back to sleep. This is very unusual for Aubs. She has slept through the night since she was 10 weeks old. The only reasons she has woken in the night since then have been when she was first teething, when she has a stuffed up nose and that one horrendous time she had a night terror. I got her back to sleep after about an hour but then she woke up in the morning feeling warmer than usual.

Having a sick baby is never fun but it is especially challenging when you are away from home. I only get to see my extended family about once a year. The day that Aubrey woke up not feeling well also happened to be the day that my whole family was getting together for dinner. The beginning of the evening started out fine. Aubs was a little bit fussy but nothing over the top. Then as the night went on she got progressively worse. She grew more tired and her fever rose. She didn't want to eat or play, all she wanted to do was curl up on my chest on the couch. So I spend the entire evening snuggling with her until she was ready for bed. I love the extra snuggles because she is usually too busy exploring to sit still but it couldn't have come at a more inconvenient time. She is still not feeling herself but her temperature has gone down and she slept through the night last night. I guess we always have next year.

I did manage to get a few good pictures of Aubrey with her Great Nana before she starting crying and flinging her body on the ground.

Then she started to crack....
