Elaina is 17 months old today!
So hard to believe that this little baby is not so little anymore. She is technically still an infant and will be a big sister in a few weeks. She is covered in carrot cake not some exotic rash. She is getting over a long sort of strange illness. Probably just a cold gone wrong. She has spiked a fever in the evenings for about a week and had a cough and a little bit of a runny nose. Grumpiness and not being able to sleep were her biggest symptoms. I only wish I were still breastfeeding her. As soon as her new sister arrives I will try to get her to latch on to nurse again but I am OK if she will just take some breast milk in a bottle or a cup. This pregnancy robbed her of the time breast feeding that I wanted to give her. But we can play catch up. I really wanted her to have 2 full years of "mama milk" .
