Here we go again...


So, this was the scene in our house... again, this morning. Miss Vaeh has had a runny nose the past couple of days, but yesterday it kicked into high gear. Every time she turned around I had to wipe her nose. At times it even was a little bloody (I think from the dry air). Her eyes have been extremely watery & "goopy" with a lot of matter. She's even woke up with her eyes matted shut a couple of days ago:0( So after trying benadryl last night, to no avail, I broke the nebulizer out again this morning. She's just so stuffy sounding - like she's talking through her nose! So, for anyone who doesn't "speak Vaeh" its even more difficult to understand her - LoL!!

As for other news, Vaeh's really getting good at going up & down steps - with help, that is! That, running & jumping are basically the only reasons she's not "caught up" developmentally, according to the therapist. She is sooo close to running... we make her try it all the time. This for two reasons, really: 1.) she gets better with practice, & 2.) she's just so darn cute when she does it! I was actually able to catch her on video...



Don't mind the crazy woman operating the camera & asking her to run over & over! I just can't help myself, she looks so determined with that arm pumping along! It reminds me of her first steps & having to have the purse on her shoulder before she would walk!

So, Miss V will be getting at least daily nebs until the weather warms up & stays that way. The weather forecast for our area is to be around 70 degrees by Friday, & then back down into the 40's & 50's with rain again by the middle of next week!!! Maybe by the time summer gets here it will feel like spring!

The running is adorable. :) What a big girl! I love the purple jammies, too.

Yucky, I'm so sorry to hear about the gunkiness. We can relate! I hope it passes soon with the sweet Vaeh. Get better, cutie girl! xo
