Coughing and more

I have failed to write long posts lately because of all the lack of sleep happening in our house right now. Magdalena and I both have the crud, and if I am not coughing, she is. Poor Noah is awoken by one of us making noises. It upsets Magdalena so much when she coughs, and I am sure that she is sore too! Noah is taking preventative cold medicine because if he gets sick this whole family is going to break down. He is taking Hebrew II as a winter course which is everyday from 9 am - 12 am, so he needs his brain in top functioning mode!

I do have to share that I am so excited that yesterday Magdalena got her car seat/stroller delivered. I never had any showers and very few gifts were given prior to Magdalena's birth because of the so many unknowns. With some generous financial gifts given to us Noah and I went Magdalena shopping. We had so much fun! We got teething stuff, humidifier, bibs, baby bag, and we picked out a stroller. Because a stroller is such a commitment I didn't want to buy one before researching it, and afterwards we ordered one that we felt would best fit our needs. It was cheaper to order it online and with a free shipping promotion we decided that waiting a week to get it would be worth it. We even had Magdalena test it out in the store, and she loved it! I felt like the stroller was for me because I was so excited! Being able to have to problem to need these things was such a blessing for us. I had wanted so badly to get a few things for Magdalena before she was born, but I didn't want them to sit around the house if the worst case scenerio should occur.

Look at that face! You can tell that she wants to go home with this car seat! But she had to wait a week to get it!

Caroline went with us to subway, and she wanted a picture of her, Magdalena, and Max, the monkey. What a sweet picture! This is really one of my favorites!

    My, how sweet Magdalena has grown. In her picture she looks like a little girl and not an infant. You are a very lucky Mother (and Father) to have such a beautiful, darling daughter.

    Have a great day. Hoping you and Magdelana soon feel better.

  5. I don't know if this works... I heard that if you put a thick layer of Vick's Vaporub on the bottom of your feet then put socks on before you go to bed it will stop the cough. Thought it would not hurt to try! Hope you two feel better soon.

  8. The picture is precious and Magdalena is so alert! Looking like a big girl! I am praying that the colds go far away!
    I also heard the thing about the Vicks on the bottom of the feet for coughing. Haven't tried it though.

  15. Please make sure you have your car seat installation checked by a technician. 90% are used or installed incorrectly. You can locate your nearest technician through this site - http://www.safekids.org/certification.

    She's such a cutie! We have coughs in our family too right now. Hope you get better soon!

  17. I come back to this post often and look at the picture of Magdalena with her cousin and the monkey. What a sweet little girl. She looks so big and grown up and precious. And those eyes! I'm so sorry for the heartache you feel in having to let her go. Through your blog I feel as though I got to know her and love her and I really do miss her. My little boy and I pray for you every night. Thank you for sharing her life with us.
