My Hero

This here is my husband. The hero of last night. Why is he a hero? Well, Mercedes was having a rough time sleeping last night (around midnight. She had been asleep previous to that) and I could not get her to sleep. I tried laying down with her, rocking her, holding her in the feeding position (while she sucked on a bottle (only occasionally), and ignoring her (while she was in her cot). None of it worked. Then he came to the rescue. I am not quite sure what he did, but he did turn off his tennis, soothe the baby then leave her in her cot until she started fussing again and then soothed her again. I think he only had to do it about three times. If he hadn't stepped in then I doubt I would have gotten much sleep that last night. So, thanks again hubby! You saved my night!

Merc Update

Well she doesn't have chicken pox. It is possibly some viral rash. Our doc doesn't know what it is. Merc isn't eating or drinking and I am thinking her throat is sore also. Time to attempt the paracetamol I think.


I think she has chicken pox. The spots are small and they haven't blistered yet. They only (mainly) seem to be on her lower tummy and groin area. They don't seem to bother her either, which is good.
