Madeline had Hand Foot and Mouth Disease for most of her 40th week. She still has it now but it’s getting better. This is our first experience with this disease and it seems like no fun at all. Madeline has certainly been fussier and had two rough nights of sleep early in her sickness, but otherwise has been a trooper.
Because of her sickness we had to cancel lots of things. And so instead of running around we had lots of quiet time at home. This sometimes drives me a little crazy but I tried to just enjoy Madeline and 9 months. The little noises and how she’s figuring out how to pick up different shaped objects. It’s hard work! My favorite is when you ask her a question and her “ba” or “da” ends up sounding like a “ya” just at the right time.
