I Just Want To Feel Better!!

This has been 2 of the toughest months I have had in a long time. I am not sure if it is because of being so tired or if it is the extreme winter we have had, but I can not stay healthy.

Over the last 2 months I have had an allergic reaction to the medical tape they used in the hospital, a sinus infection, pneumonia, I am just recovering from the flu and I now think I might have mastitis.

Seriously, it has to get better soon, right? I am so behind on so many things, especially the blog.

I had plans to post all of Emelia's newborn pictures this week(she is 2 months old already) but I was barely able to get out of bed. Mark took time off of work so I could at least get some rest to try to fight it. I found myself nursing less because I just felt so ill and I think it caused me to develop mastitis.

If there has been anything good to come from this week, Emelia is on new reflux medication and so far, it has been amazing.

The first night she was on it, she slept 11 hours straight, she is usually up every 2 hours screaming. I think her poor body was just so exhausted from fighting that she just passed out.

I am finally seeing the baby that I knew was always in there, but just struggled to come out.

I have longed for this smile for 2 long months.

Eliza has even noticed a difference, "she smiles at me mommy, she is so happy!"

This little beauty has been a dream these past few days. I have had so much fun with her. Emelia takes so much of my attention it was great to have some one on one time..even if it was at the grocery store.

I promise I will get caught up soon. Mark has tomorrow off work so I am going to lock myself in my room to get some posts done!!
