Rat tat tat

As I sit here writing I can hear a rattling in my every breath. I have pneumonia so that would begin to explain the issue. Still you have to think, that really can’t be good. When I breathe, it sounds like paper being crumpled up. Definitely not good. I’m on some antibiotics but I’m not too sure they are working all that well. I get up in the night and almost cough up a lung and I feel like I’m losing some serious oxygen. Just an FYI that pneumonia happens when your capillaries that usually hold air fill up with fluids, ie green and yellow gunk, oh yeah, good times! The moral of my story is, go to the doctor early, don’t wait until it turns into pneumonia. That paper rattling noise is rather annoying.


Learning how to do the watermelon crawl

So this week my daughter finally began crawling. It was such an exciting time for my husband and I as we watched her actually move from place to place without having to just throw her body there. That is how she has done it up to now. Also, she does this back up thing where we say, “Beep, beep, beep”, I suppose you probably had to be there but trust me, it’s quite amusing.

Anyway, as she gets faster and understands more that she is actually able to move herself from place to place without the assistance of her sucker mom, I just see how this little miracle is changing right before my eyes. Less than 10 months ago she was just a bundle of blankets wrapped up and ready to come home from the hospital, and now she is becoming more and more independent of her mama. Amazing how that works, the rest of her life is going to be more and more of the same. It’s a strange knowledge, it’s really the circle of life, but, it kind of makes me sad. 😦
