Abby has been under the weather since the end of last week, so our household is a little out of sorts (but I can’t wait to show you some pictures from Easter!).
She’s been running a low-grade fever for a few days, and has her first real cough. Its so sad! But what’s sadder is that, with this cold, our sweet little girl has turned into a hitting machine. Josh and I refer to her maneuver as "the hammers". When she is frustrated, with me, with Josh, with the cat, with a blanket, a doll, whatever, she starts swinging "the hammers". I know this is totally normal, but disciplining a 20-month-old is a challenge! I have to remember that, when she is feeling well, she responds to our correction a little better. However, for now, we are challenged with how much to allow her to express how yucky she’s feeling in her very special way.
However, one perk (for me and Josh) with her not feeling well, is that she is still for slightly longer periods of time. I caught Abby and her Daddy taking in a little bit of the Elmo the other day…
Poor sweet girl!
