You Tube Tuesday and RSV

So what does You Tube and RSV have in common? Well nothing except that it's Tuesday and Ella has RSV!

On Thursday Ella came down with a little cough. She always has a bit of a dry cough which is to be expected because winter time + West Texas= DRY but this cough was a little raspy. So we monitored her temp and went on about our day. Well, the cough got worse and worse along with the incredibly runny nose until Sunday night she didn't sleep at all and I mean AT ALL! So bright and early at 8:00 Monday morning we called Dr. Kristie and said HELP. She saw us promptly at 9:15. They do a nose swab on all children under the age of 1 to test for RSV and Flu because infants immune systems are not regulated yet. Therefore, a lot of illnesses in children under 1 all present themselves the same. Well the test came back postive for RSV. Yikes! Luckly it is a mild case and Ella is not at high risk for example premature and low birth weight, NOPE none of those! Did I mention that she has an ear infection also? Well, Dr. Kristie fixed us up. She prescribed breathing treatments of Albuterol for the RSV and an antibiotic for the ear infection. Ella slept much better last night, mommy did too, and we are hopefully on our road to recovery.

As for You Tube Tuesday I just love the cinematography in this video, it's really genius!! Hope you appreciate it as much as I do.

They grow up so fast!

Our little girl's not so little anymore. She will be six months old a week from today. I can't believe it! Time flies when you're having fun. She changes so much from day to day. She is rolling from one side of the room to the other. Every two minutes I have to go pick her up and move her back to where she started so she can start over. It's so cute when she laughs out loud. I'll have to post a video of that. She loves food! I like to say like her daddy but kind of like her mommy also! She loves peas, carrots, apples, bananas and pears. She is grabbing at everything and it all goes straight to the mouth. Lovely!! That's probably why she got her first cold this week. She hasn't slept very well the past two nights and of course they always get sick on the weekend so we have to wait until tomorrow to call Dr. Kristie. Little girls are the best and did I mention so much fun to dress and shop for. Here are some pictures of a fun day hanging out with mom.
