love.

Hello all.

We are feeling the love in the Quinn household. Which is better than Nola has been feeling as of late. She had her first cold a couple weeks ago…fortunately not a bad one…but had a yucky snotty nose and trouble sleeping. Then after an unusually long nap Tuesday afternoon, Nola woke up with a raging fever. My poor little furnance! And then she threw up! Twice! Ahhhh! What was happening?? Babies aren’t supposed to get the flu…are they? If not, then our model is broken. Please let someone know.

What was particularly heartbreaking was that all she wanted to do was snuggle. And selfishly, I loved it. She was feeling awful…and I loved it. Not that she was sick (duh) but that she wanted her mama and all she wanted to do was lay on me. Under the blankets. With her arms around me. Awwwwwwwwwwww. How terrible is that?

Sadly (but in all seriousness, thankfully) this cuddle-fest was short lived. By Wednesday afternoon her fever had subsided and after some serious sleeping, she was back to normal Thursday.

New Nola developments…she is standing with assistance from whomever or whatever will help her. Not *totally* crawling forward yet, but somehow, magically, she can get from Point A to Point B in the blink of an eye. She got another incisor tooth (yes, she has fangs now – I blame Brian for making me watch True Blood when I was pregnant) and the top middle teeth are breaking through as well. We finally got her a convertible car seat and traded in her infant one, and I may or may not have shed a few tears during the process.

Hope everyone has a fabulous Valentine’s Day! Give lots of hugs and kisses to your loved ones. xoxo
