Sick Baby

It had to happen sometime I guess, but I was really hoping to put it off longer, my poor baby got sick. The Friday before Memorial Day weekend I noticed that her eye was very red and that she felt warm. A trip to the pediatrician confirmed that Grace had pink eye and a nasty cold. She really was amazingly happy considering she was sick, but it took both Mike and I to try to get the antibiotic ointment into her eyes. She got good at closing her eyes very tight and wiggling around to try to avoid it. I don't really blame her! So we spent our Memorial Day weekend at home.

Even though she was sick, she enjoyed spending the weekend with mommy and daddy!

Not only were we dealing with pink eye and a cold, Grace also had her first tooth pop up the same weekend. So let's just say, our sleep schedule is totally thrown off. Some nights she's been up 4-5 times, others just once. A week later, we're finally starting to get her routine back to normal. Last night she was only up once.


  1. I feel for you! You are lucky you didn't end up sick too! When Eva got sick and pink eye, I got sick and pink eye too! We would just put the eye drops on the inside corner of her eye and would tilt her head a little to the side so that when she would finally open her eyes, the drop would run right into it. She hated it but it worked! So is she all better now?

  2. She is better now and luckily neither Mike or I got sick! She actually had antibiotic gel that we had to put in and it would constantly stick to her eye lashes, it was a pain! I'm hoping we won't be doing that again anytime soon!
