There is nothing that makes me feel sadder than seeing Liam sick. I just want to take it all away for him and despite medicine and snuggles, I feel completely helpless. Two nights ago, Liam was up all but two hours of the night with a stuffy nose. Luckily it wasn't any worse than that but still hard to sleep when you can't breathe very well. When yesterday morning finally came around, we were both beyond tired. Apart from naps, he cried and wanted to be held all day long. I had a splitting headache and was slightly delirious from lack of sleep (I NEEEEED MY SLEEP!) so packing him around all day just wasn't going to work. I had to get creative and discovered the pure magic of chocolate and a bath. There is truly nothing that they can't cure. ;)
I have been trying out a few samples of Shakeology from Beach Body that one of my cousins so sweetly sent to me and Liam kept begging to have a drink out of my mug so I gave him a little bit in a mug of his own and helped him drink it. His face was covered in chocolate and he cried when it was all gone. haha
Poor baby was so sleepy.
Later in the afternoon when the chocolate shake was gone and the arms were about to fall off, into the warm bath he went. He was ALL smiles!! Pure magic I tell you!
^ One of my new favorite pictures of him that I just might have to add to my bathtub picture collection I have going in his bathroom! ^
Today is a new day and while the runny nose is still there, we both got a good nights sleep last night and everything is beginning to look up! Now excuse me while we go have another chocolate shake and a bath. ;)
