This week, Nathan caught a really bad case of tonsillitis. He has been unusually quiet and listless and not at all like his usual bumptious and bouncy self. I kept him home from day care today. He didn’t do much all day except sleep and have little sips of water in between. Poor thing.
During the few quiet moments between naps when he was awake, he was happy just to hang out quietly with his little sister, while I snapped photos of them to amuse us all.
Here are some snapshots of Nathan’s sick day at home…
My sleep has suffered a lot more these couple of days. But I know my poor boy must be suffering a lot more. He can barely even swallow his own saliva without wincing. But he is being such a little trooper trying his best to be as cheerful and good-humoured as he can even though he must be feeling awful.
This is the first time in I can’t remember how long that Nathan is matching his little sister’s baby sleep patterns throughout the day. I should be sleeping too. But I just couldn’t waste the precious quiet daylight time in bed.
Hope everyone is having a good week.
