Our Sick Baby

This past week, Matthew had the flu.
It started Monday night while he was home with daddy while I was at the church for the photo group.
He forced himself to stay awake until I got home.
Scott said that if he started to fall asleep he would move so that he would stay awake.
As soon as I walked in the door, he looked at me and said, "Matthew threw up".
He wanted me to hold him right away.
He is a Mama's boy only when he is sick.
Tuesday: We spent almost the whole day on the couch (similar to the picture below).
See how his jammie shirt is up a little bit?
This is so we can "tickle" this tummy.
"Tickle"=running our fingers slightly around on his tummy=a relaxation to Matthew.
He gets mad if we stop before he is ready to stop.
He will actually grab our hands and put it where ever he wants us to tickle.
His favorite areas are his tummy and his arms.

His fever finally broke Thursday morning.
He continues to have a runny nose, sneezing and a rough cough.
Scott has also been sick (He started on Saturday with a fever).
I'm praying that I don't get sick.
So far so good.

Jenay was diagnosed with RSV in the ER on Saturday. Maybe that is what he has. I hope he feels better soon and that momma and dad don't get it! Take care!
