No fun

My baby, well she's actually becoming mommy's big girl, is sick. And it is No. Fun. It first started back in January, had a head cold for two weeks. It got better the week we got snowed in and we were home for a few days. Then it came right back, worse than before. After Mia spiked a fever at Nina and Poppy's, I decided we had better get her in to see Dr. Reyes to see what was going on. (I'm thinking, they're just going to tell me it's a viral cold and to do the normal routine we had done before.)
We got in the Dr. that very next morning. To my surpise, she looks up at me and says......yikes, Mia has pneumonia! I was SHOCKED! And to top it off, she has a double ear infection, too! UGH! Talk about feeling like mother of the year!
Thank goodness I stuck with my intuition and took her in to see the Dr. I didn't want to be one of those parents who takes her kid to the Dr. with every sniffle, but I just had a feeling this time around.
Needless to say, I've been a nervous wreck every night I put her down. I can't even tell you how many times I go in at night to check on her when she's coughing or crying in a pitiful cry..."moooooooooooooooommmmy" Hopefully when we got back to the Dr. next week her lungs will be clear and her ear infections will be getting better!
She's been a trooper and take her medicine like a champ.
Love you my baby girl!

This happens to be one of my favorites....she's totally looking like her mama here. Those big blue eyes and that sweet innocent face ;)
Can't wait till she's back to 100% and cheesin it up for me. Although, I'll take her clingy-ness to me for nowbecause I'm sure she'll be back to running and doing everything on her own!
Love you my sweet little gal!
