Rough day...

Today began between 2 and 3 am... Poor little boy could not settle, started a fever, would not eat, whined for a few hours straight and could not sleep. I called the midwives and they came right over this morning. We almost went to emergency, but luckily A started to come around and calm down, eat and breathe normally. I admit I was scared! It is amazing how fast things can change with a little baby like him - for bad and good. We spent the day making sure he was fed, and sleeping well and making sure big sis Lilly was occupied.

Mommy is very tired only having gotten a few hours sleep last night and about 1 hour today... your brain starts racing and you are listening to any sounds baby and toddler make.

On the upside - A is now 5 lbs 11 ozs!

Thank goodness for good, compassionate & skilled midwives. Thank you to Sky and Chantale.

Glad everything is ok - and yes, it's crazy how fast things can go downhill with a baby! Remember you can always call if you need an ear - day or night.
