Leah in 4-D and other stuff

I realized the other day that it was this time last year that we went and had a 4-D ultrasound done to see Leah!! She's always been the cutest little thing I've ever seen:

Well, Tuesday was even crazier than Monday around here since Jeff's sickness had officially kicked his butt.  He spent the entire day upstairs in bed so I spent the day doing my regular stuff (cleaning bottles, making bottles, doing laundry, readying Leah's supplies, cleaning Leah's supplies, cleaning the house, etc.) and then when Leah would settle in for a nap or zone into one of her TV shows, I'd run up to take Jeff juice, medicine, and shots of cough medicine. 

He is finally starting to feel better but he still has to wear his mask when he's around Leah and he's sleeping on the air mattress in one of the spare rooms so he doesn't get me sick.  And I've been drinking Alka Seltzer Immunity Complex twice a day.  That stuff tastes just wonderful!! (That was meant to be sarcastic).

Let's see, what else.....

My Mom sent Leah this early Christmas present.  It's a big ol' round pillow that looks big and comfy enough for a large dog.  Leah just sinks into it like a cloud.

And here she is sleeping this morning, like the little angel that she is:

Pay no attention to the red scab on her forehead ...... I just went and checked on her and she has already brushed it off so her face looks really good this morning.

I think she has picked up a smidgen of Jeff's cold.  Nurse Ann said that Leah had more trach secretions than normal last night, and that her nose was a bit runny.  I haven't heard her sneeze or cough yet today and she feels nice and non-feverish.  She had her last bottle between 4 and 5 AM and so I'm just going to let her sleep in as long as she wants to so she can get her rest.  I turned up her cool mist humidifier and put some Baby Vicks on her chest.
So hopefully today we can just have a nice quiet snuggle day and she'll be feeling much better.
