Where is my happy girl?

Jordan has been in a bad mood for over two weeks!

First it was teething. Then she got an ear infection. Then she was put on Amoxicillin and had a bad reaction called Erythema multiforme. (If we are friends on facebook then you heard all about this.) Well during that she developed a cough which we though was part of the allergic reaction but apparently is was the beginning of a cold. She sneezed and coughed for days and now she is still left with a runny nose and drainage. I have felt so sorry for her through all of this but now she is on the tail end of it and she is gnawing on her hands like crazy so I can only guess we are back to teething. She cries at me even when I'm sitting on the floor next to her. The only thing that makes her happy some of the time is walking her around the house while she holds my hands (which starts to kill my back) or if I just carry her around inside or outside (which again kills my back after a while). I could really use a carrier right now.

Ok, vent over. I just want my happy girl back b/c mama is going crazy!

I feel your pain- Jack is not the smily guy he always was. Now that we have colds and teeth and whatever else, he doesn't sleep as well. He doesn't want to snuggle- he wants to get down and get moving. I miss my snuggler.

Big hugs (for you and her!). I hope all this stuff passes and she's back to her regular sunshine-y self soon.

Sure makes life harder when they're not happy.

Kayley has whiny weeks and golden weeks- for no apparent reason. I don't think she's ever going to have more than 2 teeth!

Naww poor Jordan, that's a lot to go through one after the other. Aaron has his moments lately too and it does get trying at times! I hope she's back to being happy soon, poor little sweetie and poor Mamma! (HUGS)

She must be hanging out with naya again.. I think Naya is getting molars. I remember this with the boys and its not fun. Naya is the same and all she does is follow me around the house crying. It will pass...oh and she is up alot at night screaming...it has to be molars. Apples are a great idea and i let her suck on ice chips.

I've really wondered if it is her molars b/c she is shoving her fingers further back than usual. Then the drool just runs down her arm and drips off her elbow. It's lovely, lol. She literally burst into a screaming and crying fit when I WENT TO THE BATHROOM today! I mean, I had to pee!!!!!!!!!! The nerve!

Sorry Naya is having long nights. Sad I know you went through some rough nights to get her to sleeping better.

Sad I'm so sorry Kayla! I felt so bad that Jordan got the EM, that was so horrible when Luke got it. Sad Don't be surprised if it takes a long time for the rash to go away. Luke had a minor one for several months, like any kind of friction made it come back.

And sorry about the teething, poor little girl needs a break!!

So sorry she's having such a rough time. Just when you think you can't take any more they seem to turn around.

I hope you are both feeling better soon!
