I'm pretty sure I have the flu. Rich caught it too. And Alex has an ear infection. This family is a mess!
On top of it all, I have had such a busy work-week and could only stay home a couple days. I really should have been in bed all week, but what can you do when you already have appointments, lunches, breakfasts and work meetings to attend?
Rich has been swamped at work, leaving before Alex is awake and coming back home after she is asleep. So not only do I feel like a single mom (kind of, although I'm not even pretending I know what that is like), I feel like a SICK single mom. And poor Alex has been off her game with a fever, fussiness, and refusing to drink her bottles! Her antibiotics seem to be kicking in, so I am hoping she is turning the corner any minute now.
WAAAHH! Enough complaining already, right? I am sure things are going to get much better very soon. It can only go up from here!

Today Alex started giggling for the first time! We've heard a couple little chuckles here and there in the past, but today she just started really laughing and cracking up for a few minutes! I think it might be the sweetest sound I have ever heard in my life. It started on the car ride to Grandma & Grandpa's after she had been fussing in her carseat for a few minutes. I started playing with her ball to distract her. All of a sudden, it's like I opened the floodgates, and out came her belly laughs!
