Poor little Henry is sick. We think it's RSV. Went to the pediatrician yesterday, but he's since developed a fever.

I'm a pretty laid back mom, but this is REALLY freaking me out. He's so lethargic and just sleeping all the time. Luckily the Ty1en0l is helping.

We went to the Chi1dren's Museum on Saturday and I think he picked it up there.

We're going back to the doctor later this morning.

My poor little boy. I feel like crying seeing him suffer like this. I wish I could make him better.

a little better

Thanks for the words of encouragement. I'm feeling a little better now. It must have been mostly hormonal.

I do belong to a mom's group. I go every Tuesday morning and it's been great. I also have an adoptive families play group once per month and I went today to yet another adoptive families information session. I do try to plan something to do every single day to get out of the house. Plus, Henry and I go for a walk in the afternoon with B-dog most days which is yet something else to do. Usually I feel so busy that I look forward to a morning when I don't have anything going on.

But my hormones (I'm guessing) made me feel lonely. Since the trouble with my friend, I've been feeling insecure in friendships and like I need to make new friends. I'm trying but I haven't found anybody new that I really 'click' with so far. I mean, I enjoy my groups a lot, and there are two adoptive moms that I'm 'friend dating' to see if either of them really click, but just have felt that affinity lately.

And I had that I have to 'friend date.' It sucks. I used to be so good at making friends, but lately I feel like I just don't like anybody. It's difficult to meet people, but I want to have some friends who have kids around Henry's age.

Also, my parents are leaving for FL next week and I guess I'm feeling a little lonely and sad about that, too. I know that if I have nothing to do my mom will always be up for a little visit from Henry and me. But now that's not going to be a possibility for 2 months! It makes me feel a little more lonely.

Happily, I do have some lovely friends from here in blog land that I see, some more often than others, and I do know I have friends around. But I definitely need to work on this 'friend dating' thing. Yuck. Sigh. I thought I was done with that sort of thing when I met T. But regular dating is even more socially acceptable than friend dating.

I just have to push myself, I guess.

Henry is good. I've been feeling a little isolated recently. I think it's mostly PMS. I do keep busy and have things to do all day. I do realize how lucky I am to be able to stay home. But the fact of the matter is, sometimes taking care of a baby, no matter how well behaved and adorable he is, can be a little boring. With the freezing cold weather and PMS and things, I've been having a tough time of it the past few days. I have a busy week coming up so hopefully it won't last, but I guess it boils down to the fact that both Henry and I are pretty sick of our living room. I've signed up for a moms' night out dinner, and I think I have to make sure to leave Henry home with T on the weekends and make sure I have some 'me' time.

E&R&S gave Henry a giraffe. He loves it.

He's almost 5 months old. He's eating oatmeal and rolling over and seems pretty close to sitting up. He's the greatest kid. I love him to pieces. When his bottom lip curls, my heart melts. Why is that sad face so cute?

I'm working on making Henry a little yoda sweater. I hope my troubles lift.
