Sick Baby

In this post Haley is 9 months and 19 days old:

Well, it has been an interesting few days around our house. Saturday, Rachel kept Haley all day while Ethan and I went to the Ole Miss football game. They had a great time, and she was a complete angel. Then Sunday, she was home with us, and while her overall mood was ok, she was starting to get kind of clingy. Didn't wan't to be left alone. We went over to our friends Amy and Sanford's house, and played with them and Chloe and had chili and had a great time. Well, yesterday morning, we got Haley up and she was burning up. She had a fever, and when Ethan and I looked in her mouth we could see blisters on her throat. Turns out she has a virus called Herpangina. It is blisters in her mouth, and is very common among toddlers and pre toddlers this time of year. There isn't anything we can do, other than give Tylenol and Motrin, and maker her as happy as possible.

She is starting to get better (we hope) and sleeping a lot. We are thankful for her schedule, because even when she hasn't been feeling 100%, she still sleeps like she needs to. I am going to post some videos from Sunday, that should make you smile. On a good note, she apparently had a growth spurt from 9/22 to yesterday. She is now 29.5 inches long and 23 lbs 6 oz. Our big little girl! Hope everyone is well!

Love, Susan

With that sweet smile you'd never know she was sick. Looks happy as can be.

I love her little yelps! It's amazing the difference in sounds that boys and girls make...I need to post a video of Joshua and we can compare the difference. And she claps her hands--so cute!
