I literally have no idea what day it is. With the boys being sick, Liam missing school, and Conor working from home, it has felt like the weekend already. Except without any fun. But I'm still hopeful that healthier babies are in my future, and that we will be able to get outside this weekend for some fresh air! In anticipation of that lovely coveted weekend, I bring you some randomness:
Thanks again for all your kind words of support & love for little Finn. He has had quite the difficult week. I plan on sharing a bit more about him and this vicious sickness we are dealing with (because obviously another sick kid post is needed), but for now a quick update: We spent half of Wednesday in the ER due to some upper respiratory issues. The official diagnosis is Bronchiolitis. Conor was actually away on business this week, but flew home immediately after I told him I was taking Finn to the ER. Our little boy is a strong fighter. He seems to be improving a bit each day, but is having a difficult time stomaching any meds and keeping down breastmilk. We feel fortunate to be able to monitor him from home, so hopefully we get good news at the doctor's office tomorrow.
Is everyone still as excited about Pillowfort as me?! I made most of my purchases online (things sold out crazy quick), and so far the quality is great! I love the lantern style of this lamp that will go in Finn's room, once I decide on a nightstand, and this basket is my new favorite thing ever! I want about five more for laundry baskets, toy bins, really anything. The size is perfect!
If you are local to Salt Lake City (or if you are into good eats & drinks) then you need to be following my friend Caroline! Her cocktails are always swoon worthy, her son adorable, & she herself is quite witty. Serious girl crush on this one! Check her out!
I have a confession: I used to hate Justin Bieber. I never saw the appeal. I didn't get it. Guess who I'm obsessed with now...? Yep Bieber. I have the fever. I am a Belieber. He is seriously killing it with his new album! I cannot get enough of "Love Yourself" & "Sorry". Liam knows all the words, so we've obviously been jamming out far too much. And I'm even digging his lavender hair. Whatever thing he has going on right now, I'm into it! "My mama don't like you..."
If you are feeling like Bieber isn't the best music to listen to with your kids, then I have a little something else you for. The Family Folk station on Pandora. So much goodness!!! Did you know Johnny Cash put out a children's album?! After you give a few thumbs up or down, the station really settles in. I happen to love when anything from the Sound of Music comes on! I play this a lot during the witching hour when we're trying to calmly play at home or sometimes before bed when Finn decides he wants to scream the entire time that I get him in his pajamas and sleep sack.
