I knew the day would come, and I’ve been dreading it. Sadie has her first cold and it’s breaking. my. heart.
Our little gal woke up with a scratchy throat and some congestion. She’s just the most pitiful little thing when she cries. There’s not much we can do to treat a cold besides try to alleviate her symptoms, watch for a fever, and snuggle.
She seems to be in good spirits despite the sickness, so that’s good news! I think this is harder for mama than Sadie, but that’s probably the way tough things will go as she grows up 😉
Our weekend was a fun and busy one! It kind of felt like it started on Thursday because we were able to see my parents and hang out for a bit! Here’s the rundown of our fun!
- Thursday: my mom and I took Sadie to the mall (we had a great experience in Altar’d State–they were super accommodating and let me nurse Sadie in the dressing room and even gave my mom and I bottles of water!) and my dad came over in the evening and we ordered pizza. After they left I wrapped up a work project, which was a relief.
- Friday: Sadie and I visited Jimmy at work! This has started to become a weekly occurrence and we’re loving it. My father-in-law and his wife came over in the evening to visit and they gave Sadie a bath. So cute!
- Saturday: I worked a little in the morning and we went shopping with my mother-in-law and sister-in-law and swung by our favorite grocery store to grab some chocolate. Amy recommended this brand, so I had to check it out!
- Sunday: we went to church and our friends from church (Hi Miss Laura and Mr. Dave!) graciously baby sat Sadie while Jimmy and I visited our friend in the hospital. After evening church, there was a fellowship and we also trained my sister and her husband to do some church duties.
It was a great mix of family time, getting out and about, and even a little bit of productivity sprinkled in between!
I’ve been back into the swing of real estate work, though my schedule looks different these days. It’s a balancing act of fitting in work here and there, but I feel so thankful to have such a flexible schedule and the ability to work for my family’s business. God has been so good to me.
We also did some reading over the weekend, which included Sadie’s first sign language book, this book that I can’t read without crying, and the first draft of my book! More on all of that in another post, though!
