We're having a not-so-happy start to the week here. Tyler is sick, and taking the first round of antibiotics for the boys. We saw the pediatrician this morning, and his lungs are clear but she saw a little something in his ear... and had a hard time checking his throat... so here we are. 

Tyler is the happiest baby - doesn't cry much. Just keep him full & dry... and he's pretty much good to go. The last two days, however, he has been inconsolable. He wants to be held constantly and has cried more than the entirety of the rest of his life. He'll only drink a few ounces at a time and then passes out - but if you put him down... he wakes up shortly afterward. I think that the small amounts of milk help a possible sore throat. It's a very helpless feeling not knowing what exactly is wrong or how to fix it.

I'm just glad that the doc agreed with me. John had tonsillitis last week and I had a sinus infection... so it is likely he has a bit of one of those as well. He has been stuffy for over 2 months... so I made sure not to see our regular doctor. I swear that I'd have punched her if she would have seen him one more time and sent me home with nothing to combat this mess.

So, we are home alone together for the day. James is playing at the sitter's house while Tyler gets as much rest as possible. I wanted to give him the day to rest - and two demanding boys with one Mommy does not make it easy. 

We are expecting some bitter cold weather here this week... not as bad as some of our friends up farther north... but we might see snow on Friday! I hope we can all get healthy and stay that way for a good long while. Stay warm and dry, friends!
