Thank goodness it's Monday??? Yes, you have read it correctly. I, Wendy Del Signore, have announed for the first time in my life that I am thankful for a Monday! This weekend was absolutely exhausting and I'm ready to get back on our regular schedule. Caleb has been sick for the past few days. It started out with the same cold Ryan and I have had and progressed into a lot of congestion. Since Caleb had RSV when he was younger, the usual small cold can turn into a respiratory mess for him. I took him to the doctor this morning and he has to take a decongestant and Albuterol for the next several days. Taking Caleb to the doctor has to be one of the worst things in the world. I had to hold his poor little arms down while our pediatrician cleaned out his ears to look at them. Him screaming combined with the hoarse little voice he has developed was the most pitiful sounding thing I have ever heard. In that moment I promised my poor angel new toys, special baby foods, and a pony just to make him feel better. Seriously, in that moment I was willing to sell my home, all three vehicles, and my camper in Tellico just to buy anything that would make him feel better! I really think Ryan should be the one who takes him next time....

As you can imagine, I have been staying up through the night to help Caleb sleep better. Every time I hear a sniffle or a cough, my mommy radar goes off and I immediately wake up. Something in my brain is just wired to go off when my baby doesn't feel well.

Friday evening, Ryan and I packed up and hit the road for Tellico. The campground was full! It was nice having lots of people to talk to and catch up with. Caleb started getting sick that evening, so him and I sat in my parents'cabin and rocked to sleep. I woke up at about 12 am and noticed everyone else was still awake. I laid Caleb down in the bed and ended up talking until about 2 am! On Saturday, Caleb woke up and sounded really stuffy. We spent the day lying around on the couch napping. It was nice to have my little one snuggled up next to me the majority of the day. We got home Saturday around 11 pm and just crashed!

Caleb, Belle, and Granny! Can you tell how jealous Belle is???

On Sunday, I met up with my Aunt Debbie to have lunch, do some shopping, and go to my cousin's baby shower. We went to one of my favorite stores: Kirkland's! Since I am in the process of redecorating, I found several new things for the living room and they were all on sale! I have yet to find the pillows that I am looking for, but that's my goal for the week!

My cousin, Amanda, is having a little boy soon (someone for Caleb to play with) and her shower was Sunday. I'm so absolutely jealous because she looks so pretty pregnant! When I was that far along, Caleb was causing me to look like a hot mess! I didn't get a chance to tell her, but purple is definitely her color! She was absolutely glowing yesterday and I am so very happy for her. Honestly, pregnancy totally agrees with her! Amanda and her husband, Michael,  have traveled a long, difficult journey to have Baby Nicholas. If you want to check out her amazing story, click here. Grab your box of Kleenex and be prepared to see the wonderful things God can do! Their family is a prime example of what prayer and patience can do.

"Blessed are they that keep His testimonies, and that seek Him with the whole heart."
(Psalms 119:2)
