Poor Baby Ayla


Sunday, 22 September 2013: One Hundred and Seventy Four Days Old.

Poor Baby Ayla isn’t well. .. She’s still got the cough from earlier this week, but it seems to be getting worse.

I originally thought the cough was due to all the dust in the air (hay fever is at an all time high this year) but now I’m not so sure.

So Hubby and I took Ayla to the doctors today and we were told she has a virus (which explains my sore throat too!)

The cough is really Ayla’s only symptom, but its scary because she can’t breathe when she coughing and it looks like she starts to choke!

The good news is that Ayla doesn’t have a fever, she doesn’t have an upset tummy and she’s her usually happy self in between the coughing fits.

The doctor’s told us what to watch for so we’re keeping a close eye, but thanks to Baby Panadol Ayla’s asleep in her room for now so I think we’ll be ok.


Miss my Ayla


Friday, 20 September 2013: One Hundred and Seventy Two Days Old.

Hubby and I have had a few massive days at home with the renovations, and now I miss my Ayla!

She’s been right here with us of course, but because we’ve been so busy I haven’t had as much time to hang out with her as I usually do.

Amidst all the work, we did get to have a bit of fun this afternoon when we put Ayla and her friend Baby Coops in the wheelbarrow for a swim!

It was very cute – and a welcome break from concreting – but tonight I still felt like I wanted to cuddle Ayla for eternity and make up for lost time!

I’ve been so conscious that these early days of Ayla will pass by in a blink of an eye and I’ve not wanted to miss a single thing.

To make my guilt over the last couple of days worse, Ayla’s developed a little bit of a cough (I think it’s from all the dust in the air) so now I don’t want to let the poor cherub out of my sight!
