the plague

Oh, yes. Yes, I’m being dramatic here. Sickness has descended on the Moore household. Ryan, Spencer and I left NY for NH last Saturday, and the intent was for Spencer and I to stay with my parents while Ryan took care of some urgent family matters in Oregon. It turns out that my father and my mother were sick while we were there, and Spencer caught a cold. My friends, there is nothing more sad than a sick baby…especially when it’s just a cold and there’s nothing you can do for it.


Snuggles on Oma definitely helped though. Anyway, as we left NY yesterday, I started to feel that dreaded tickle in my throat and by 3 PM during our drive home, I’d lost my voice, and I felt like someone was hitting my head with a hammer. You know…just because. Anyway, I’m pretty rough today, but I’m sure I’m on the mend…until Ryan gets sick. Before the sickness took its hold though, and before Ryan left for Oregon, we managed to have some fun family time, and Spencer got to hang out with Opa, Aunt Nikki and Uncle Adam, as well as spend some quality too-cool-for-school time with daddy.

Spencer is getting so darn big. We had to go to the doc today because my momma gut was telling me it was time, and I was right. We got him multiple antibiotics for his eczema, which will hopefully help things along. I’ll post about that at a later date…cautionary momma tales and all. But anyway, keep your fingers crossed that if Ryan catches whatever we have that it moves quickly, please.


We want to enjoy this amazing spring weather, my friends, because it is finally over 70 degrees in New York today!
