8 weeks old

I can't believe that my baby girl is 8 weeks old. I can't believe how fast it has gone! This is a challenging time for any mom having a newborn, but I think it is necessary to go through because you learn to enjoy even the difficult times. She has been a really good baby, but has her gassy issues, which makes evening sometimes difficult. I can't believe I go back to work next week. Sad momma here! Much more difficult to go back this time around, because now she will really start growing up fast, I would like to just freeze some moments in time and this would be one of them.
For those of you who don't know over Thanksgiving our baby had a fever which in turn resulted to a trip to the ER, she had elevated white blood cell count and needed a spinal tap to rule out meningitis, a catheter was put in to rule out a urinary tract infection, and a nose swab to rule out the flu and rsv. I didn't know it was so serious, but when itty bitty's have fevers it is pretty serious and all precautionary measures are taken. We ended up having to spend the night at children's hospital in madison. Scary stuff. It was a virus that this girl's immune system was trying to fight off. With pink eye the week before then getting a wonderful cold virus her immune system was working overtime, not to name any names but I think her brother had something to do with it. She has improved and is back to her normal self. Having going through that really puts things into perspective. Having health, and a loving family is really all that matters in life.
More updates next week, after my other baby turns three.......can you hear me crying??!?! My babies are growing up too fast....slow down!!!!!!!
