Weekend full of firsts... sick daddy and mommy

This weekend was full of firsts for Elliot. We took her on her first road trip to Gulfport, where she met her grandma Jenny (Jaje's mom) and big brother Vincent for the first time. We also celebrated her first birthday and she ate her first birthday cake. It was a very fun weekend. I took lots of pictures and videos which I will post as soon as I'm feeling better.

The one downside to the weekend is that the first morning, Jaje woke up feeling sick. His nose was stuffed up, his throat was swollen, and he felt crummy. I was afraid we'd all catch it but somehow Elliot and I remained healthy throughout the weekend. On monday night, we returned home. Tuesday morning, I woke up feeling like hell with all the same symptoms he'd woken up with Saturday morning. Luckily, Elliot was okay and my mother took her and she's been staying at my moms since yesterday. I miss her terribly. I was able to see her for a few minutes when my mom brought her over today but she wouldn't bring her in the house or let me get too close. I couldn't hold my baby or kiss her. It made me so sad but I know that it's for her own good. I don't want her getting sick. I just hate being sick even more than usual because it's keeping me from my baby. I'm so grateful to my mother that she is helping us so much. I've been taking some benadryl, dayquil, and nyquil throughout the day and night. I'm hoping to feel better before the end of the week because this Sunday is Elliot's first birthday for real. We will be celebrating it a second time with her other grandma and grandpa. I had wanted to celebrate with everyone together but it didn't work out that way. I'm still happy that she got a chance to celebrate with her grandma jenny and brother. I will post an update on how it went with Elliot and Vincent, including photos and videos, when I start to feel well. I hope it's soon. I miss my daughter so much and I can't wait to be able to bring her home. I know she misses her mommy too. My mom said that she will look for me and sometimes go to the door and scream "mama mama" as though she thought I might be on the other side of it. It makes me happy to know that my baby loves me so much.

I'm going to sleep now because the nyquil I took is making me drowsy. I'm hoping to wake up feeling better tomorrow. Everyone hope with me (or pray if you're into that). :o)

I was that sick last month, during the Gnomes party of all things. I was miserable for a week and at one point had to go to the emergency room because my throat nearly closed up all the way. It was scary! I hope you don't have to go through that too!
oh yikes, that's horrible! Jaje is already feeling better and so I'm hoping that I'll start feeling better shortly too. He's been on antibiotics though and I haven't because I don't want to go to the doctor. I'd rather just tough it out and hope it goes away on it's own. The funny thing is when he started to get sick, I remember saying "hah you get sick all the time and i never get sick." I guess this is what I get for making that comment. hehe. i've learned my lesson! :o)
Hope you guys are feeling better. So far we've been pretty healthy, but the school year has just begun...
Thanks! I hope you guys stay healthy! It's no fun being sick. I haven't been sick in so long that I forgot what it's like. It's my husband that usually gets sick, not me. I thought I was invincible but now I know better. hehe. :o)
