18 Weeks Postpartum.

YOU GUYS. My poor baby finally caught his first cold. I came home from work Saturday and kept noticing him sneezing and coughing. I didn’t really think much of it to be honest. I mean, I thought it was weird but that’s it. Then during the night he was extremely fussy and kept waking up crying. Then on Sunday he was totally not himself. He only took one nap! He was wide awake from 2pm-11pm! He was fighting sleep like no other. Since I was so paranoid I kept him in bed with us (which he’s been sleeping with us since because he’s still sick). Also on Sunday I was sneezing a TON but I honestly thought it was allergies because it was a little windy out. Well, yesterday I woke up and felt like a truck hit me. My throat hurt so bad and I was running a fever all day and was extremely cold even though it wasn’t even cold outside. My body had chills and I was absolutely miserable. Luckily Levi took two really good naps yesterday so I was able to nap also. We went to the doctor yesterday because he was supposed to get his 4 month shots but we are postponing them until Thursday because I wanted him to feel better before I had him poked and prodded. He’s still sneezing and coughing but his mood is pretty much back to Normal. I woke up to him talking and screaming (in a good way) this morning. I had a terrible nights sleep and I’m still feeling really crappy. I lucked out and Jesse is staying home today to help a mama out! Yesterday was rough, I felt so bad that I couldn’t really entertain Levi because I was feeling so sick. I cried about it because I felt terrible about it. Jesse reminded me that it’s just one day and he’ll be fine.

Other than the sickness in our home, Levi’s been doing pretty good! I’ve decided I’m not going to start feeding him until 5-6 months because I just feel like it’s too soon right now. I’m getting more excited about making him his own food! I have a book on recipes for baby so I’ll definitely be using that. At the doctors yesterday Levi weighed in at a whopping 18 pounds and 26 inches! Also, it’s been exactly ONE year since finding out I was pregnant. I remember the day like it was yesterday! I remember feeling happy, nervous, scared, and excited all at once. I had no idea what I was in for but I knew I had wanted it for so long. I’ll never forget just sitting at the top of our stairs with Jesse just talking about everything. Getting pregnant happened so fast. I really told myself that it could take months, years! I had no idea it would only take weeks! It’s the best thing that’s ever happened to me. I absolutely love being Levi’s mom đŸ’—

Sorry this post is short. I even forgot to post yesterday but honestly I was dying (exaggerating, yes) and could hardly take care of myself. Here’s to hoping I’ll feel better as the day goes on!
