Oh you guys. I don’t feel well at all. Remember that time I was having bad stomach pains, and come to find out, I had an ulcer? Well, it’s baaaaaaaack. My stomach is just killing me, to the point that I can’t hold any food down and have been throwing up. Not a good way to celebrate your Thanksgiving weekend, huh?
Speaking of which, I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving, ate lots of turkey, and took some seriously rejuvenating naps! Because what is the point of being off work for a holiday if you can’t gorge yourself on food and sleep? And for those of you who had to work, I hope you were able to still enjoy your day.
Oh, and I have some super cute pictures of Nathan I plan on posting within the next few days when I start feeling better!
Yesterday, as it was nearing Nathan’s nap time, Nathan and I sat down at the computer and I sang along with some songs on YouTube. After about 20 minutes, the little guy was completely knocked out. As in, my voice must have sounded so horrible that the only reprieve Nathan had was to fall asleep! He was so asleep, in fact, that he didn’t wake up as I changed his diaper and put him down for his nap. He slept solidly, like a little angel, and woke up refreshed and happy.
My singing must have really wore him out!
Today, however, that is not the case. He woke up this morning with a stuffy nose, and it has been running like a leaky faucet all day long. He’s been fussy and is constantly swiping at his runny nose with his hands, effectively smearing snot all over his face. When I put him down for a nap, and he only slept lightly because of his nose was so stopped up. He kept trying to suck on his fingers, but then he couldn’t breathe so he would wake up. I don’t know if it’s a cold or allergies. He doesn’t have a fever and seems to have no other symptoms other than a stuffy nose that constantly drips clear fluid. I don’t hink he’s contagious since neither Paul nor I are showing any symptoms.
Poor lil guy. I hate when he doesn’t feel well.
Well Nathan has decided that a nap is NOT on his itinerary for the day! He’s been running around like a crazy little field mouse, laughing for no reason and having a big ole time. Which reminds me somewhat of a mischevious little imp. Like there really IS a reason for this laughter… he’s about to get into something and boy, it’s going to be BIG. He already messed with the settings on our receiver (for our surround sound, DVR, and DVD player) and it took me a few minutes to figure out exactly what he did to render it SOUNDLESS. His toys are scattered around all over the place. I’ve stepped on one of those giant Lego’s already, and let me tell you, that shit HURTS.
And, Nathan is running around at full speed, intermittently covering me with his sweet hugs and kisses then running away with his head tilted back, and I can’t help but think it’s because he’s running so fast THAT HIS HEAD CAN’T KEEP UP WITH HIS BODY. Just a few minutes ago, I had him in my lap while I was on the computer, but he started bouncing so hard on me that I almost peed on myself. We were listening to this song by 10 Years (if you click on the link, give it a few seconds and it will play automatically), and he was started bouncing up and down like a jackhammer while trying to sing along. Which, admittedly, was freakin’ adorable to hear him attempt to sing along to something, even if my bladder was frantically protesting THE ENTIRE TIME.
I think I am the one who needs a nap! And I am sitting here wondering WHO THE HELL SNUCK SUGAR INTO HIS CHEERIOS? Because this kid is seriously hyper today.
