"I SAW THAT!"

I have been sick. SO sick. Sicker than I think I have ever been before. How does one catch STREP THROAT and the most severe strain of INFLUENZA at the same time - and only a month after having a baby?! Seriously?! I felt like I had been hit by a bus! I am just now recovering after staying in bed for days, being forced into wearing a Sars mask around the baby and asked to stop nursing while on my medication. Super fun during the craziest time of the year and probably the week my little family has needed me most. I am so lucky to have amazing people come to my rescue -- special thanks to Mom Vicki, Stace and Lisanne for covering my kiddies and to Jen and Mom Sam for the constant check ins and edible arrangement and to Trish for the phone calls... I feel loved!
Part of my rescue is a blessing from Mac and Dad Steve. I am so lucky to be able to ask and seriously know things took a turn for the better as soon as I got it. We went back into Dad's office for the blessing - leaving Bella to babysit Baby Cruz and Coley to play cowboys and indians just outside the door. Cole was loud during the whole blessing. Serious warfare between the cowboys and indians going on I guess... Just as we neared the end of the blessing I could hear him getting closer and closer to the glass french doors. I was just waiting for him to barge in. As soon as we said 'amen' - sure enough he came right in...

COLE: "I saw that! I saw that!" (Pointing his little finger at all of us.)
MIMI: "Yep - Mommy just got a blessing from Papa and your Daddy."
COLE: "Yep, Just like Jesus." (Said so nonchanantly as he walked back out the door.)

Not totally sure what he meant, but melted my heart anyway...

Im so glad you found me! That is such a sweet story about Cole. I cant believe you were that sick. You poor thing! Especially when Cruz is that small and you have to wear a mask. That is torture not being able to kiss and love on him.

So glad your getting better. Cant wait to see him in person. He is absolutley adoreable. So freakin cute! Love all your family pics! p.s. Cant believe you went natural. You are amazing!

After I saw you the other day, I tested positive for strep. It's awful. I'm sorry about all that's going on. I know it will all work out. Send me your email because I can't find it, mine is marthagriffiths@gmail.com and I'll send those pictures to you. They are darling.

So glad my partner in crime is felling better. I thought you might possibly die. I have never seen you so wretched and I couldn't think of what to do because I didn't want you to breathe on me. It was like that time you were unavailable all day because you were reading that stupid vampire book. ;) Thank heavens that is over. I need you and Treehouse needs their employee of the month back!

Brooke said...

So sorry you've been so ill! I had no idea. Let me know if there's anything we can do for you guys!

Johnson said...

HAHAHAHA wow I don't know if that story is funny because I have a complete mental image with the french glass doors or if it's because i totally know what cole looked like when he strutted out of the office with a grin on his face. Precious moments steph-so happy you are feeling better. I think we should check ourselves into an institute this week...All of us. :-) Love you!

This is one of those experiences in life that you look back on and laugh and remember how sick you were, but right now! NOT LAUGHING, sounds miserable...Love you, glad you are feeling better. Merry Christmas.
