Snowdays with a Sick baby

Wyatt has been teething for about a week now. We thought his runny nose was because of the teeth, not so much the thought anymore. :( We have a Dr. appointment this afternoon (praying the ice/snow will hold off enough for me to get there and back). He has a terrible cough, runny nose, and is beginning to decline his bottle. BTW That's all he eats as an 8 month old but that's for a different post. I feel so bad for him. He tries to feel good, he will play for about 20 minutes then BAM he is screaming, coughing, can't get his breath, then is fussy and wants to be held then put in his crib. Poor baby! In one of his "playing" moods this morning I caught this picture with my phone:
I know, I know...what a big boy! Now if he would eat real food and crawl....hmmm!?!?!?

We are supposed to be getting a HUGE storm here starting this afternoon and into the night until Wednesday morning. Yikes!!??! I will be excited once Mark is home and his school is cancelled. :) You all know how I feel about SNOWDAYS!!!! LOVE THEM!!!! Last nigh I decided I would "run out" and grab a few last minute items before the storm. Well, so did the rest of St. Louis. NOT. A. JOKE.

There were NO shopping carts (and not because the were laying around the parking lot), there was NO milk, NO bread....the line was over 30 mins. long. I have NEVER seen anything like this. It kinda made me nervous. I have never been the adult in a situation like this (I mean the one responsible for the preparation for what may come). I hope I got it, batteries-check, radio-check, candles and matches-check, hmm....and the list goes on and on! Here is a little preview of the grocery store last night....

Well, I hear a baby crying...gotta go!


  1. The last part of this post makes me giggle :) I live in MN and we have a TON of snow! Our stores are busy when we are due for a large storm but NOT to this degree!!!!

    My 10month old has had the same thing as your little guy and so has two of my friends kids. All were seen btwn wed and Fri of last week. All diagnosed with Pneumonia.
    Praying your little guy feels better.
    And, about him only wanting to drink bottles. My kid is semi picky and only will eat Earth's Best baby food and/or things he can gnaw on.Cereal and others were a no go at first. Good Luck!

  2. Aw, hope he feels better soon!!

    Stay safe and warm during the storm!! I'm hoping for a snow day tomorrow--maybe Wednesday too!

  3. Thanks for stopping by! YOur family is too cute!

    I thought about the whole snow storm thing now that I have a child, it freaks me out more than it ever would! I just hope we are trapped for too long....i have a crabby teething baby too :)

  4. Oh my gosh, we had a very similar grocery store experience yesterday. It's tough! Hope Wyatt is feeling better!

  5. Hope Mr. Wyatt is feeling better and you all don't get too much snow and ice. I'm praying for your family to all return safely, hopefully by the weekend things will be fine. The Thompsons are stranded, but with the Walkers, Dumeys, Lukefahrs, and Turleys...I'm sure they are making the best out of it! ;)


I always love what you'll have to say...thanks for stopping by!
