Life Lately

Hey y'all! I've been a bit MIA recently so I figured a good 'ol "Life Lately" post would be fitting!  Where do I even start... 

Oh yes!  Last Sunday night/Monday... Jack came down with a virus that is apparently going around our area - YAAY!  So, we spent Monday - Friday consoling a sick baby, cleaning up throw-up & diarrhea blow-outs, washing laundry, a baby (multiple times), a car seat & bases... MY HOUSE!  I've never smelt & dealt with so much vomit & poo in my life!  Needless to say I am so glad that is over!

However, on Wednesday Jack stopped eating about 11:30 am & refused all bottles & pedialyte from then on.  So, we made our first trip to urgent care that night to find out that not only did he have this virus but, also an ear infection! {Insert big shocked first-time parent eyes}  Thankfully he's been on meds since & seems to be doing better but, after a quick check-up with his dr yesterday is on a new dose of meds that will hopefully kick the ear infection out for good!

Thursday Jack seemed to be feeling a bit better after getting a couple doses of meds in him so I took advantage & stepped outside to get some fresh air!  I think it made him so happy to be outside too & watch Bingham run around!
Let's not fool anyone though... once back inside He lost it, was super cranky & back to not feeling awesome.  The joys of a sick baby - I have no clue what He needs or wants!

After battling it out Friday night for a good 3 hours getting this boy to sleep, Matt & I were slooow moving on Saturday & took it easy around the house - as easy as this guy would let us!  Later Saturday afternoon we busted out of the house & visited the park.  This was Jack's second time in the swing & He LOVES it!!  It was nice to get out of the house as a family and have a little fun!

I'm super thankful that after 8 months this is our first major illness but, I feel like we made up for lost time for sure!  With Jack over the virus & starting to feel better from the ear infection we've been trying to get back on track with our normal schedule.  Schedules are everything!!

The weather has been good to us the last week + and I've been taking advantage of it when I can!  Opening the house up, burning my favorite Fall candles & taking Jack out to enjoy the fresh air!  We even got to have lunch with Matt one afternoon and stroll around Downtown for a little bit - it was such a nice treat & welcomed change after last week!

So, that's basically where I've been hiding.... At home with a sickly little babe.  Oh!  And I've been working on new items in my Etsy store - The Fancy Yancey Shop!  Be sure to stop by & check out the new Thanksgiving banners I recently listed!

Hope y'all are having a great week!  I'll now resume regular programming... Whatever that is these days!  :)

Linking up with Jessi & Jenn!
