today i really wish maxson would focus/be distracted by a movie.
i woke up with a sore throat that's just been getting worse and worse. my lymph nodes are oober swollen, it'a hard to swallow and hurts, my body is overall a little achey, i have a borderline head ache, and by entire body feels like the energy is just depleted out of it. fun stuff, eh?
maxson hasn't been that needy today (probably because i'm not standing doing dishes/making food, ha). i've played with him a little here and there, i'm hoping he's not feeling the same way. through some tender mercy casey had a 2 hour break at lunch and during that time i soaked in a bath which helped a ton, he put maxson down for a nap at a 11:35 and i promptly began sleeping when i got out of the bath. i napped from about 12-1 where upon i was awakened by a maxson cry, i went in promptly to get him to find a snuggly baby who then slept beside me on my bed for another 2 hours. huge tender mercy there because a) he never naps that long (last night's lack of sleep on his part probably attributed to this) b) he never goes back to sleep after we've gotten him c) i don't remember the last time he fell asleep next to me on my bed. tender mercy of the lord i tell you. too bad i couldn't get anything productive done because a) his feet were dangling off the bed the whole time and i was afraid he'd fall off b) i was so timid laying next to him attempting to move, the last thing i wanted to happen was ME wake him up from moving. nonetheless, it was wonderful.
and now i'm sitting here on the couch feeling worse by the minute, counting down the minutes until casey gets home from school (we live a 3 minute bike ride away, it's wonderful), also waiting upon my saintly neighbor to return from the store with milk, bananas, and soup (and maybe some medicine if she finds any).
send good thoughts my way.
i shall leave you with pictures of a delectable fruit pizza i made a couple weeks ago at a baby shower. i used this recipe for the crust and this recipe for the frosting. i also dipped the bananas in lemon water so they wouldn't brown. it was delicious.
