Good News First

The good news is that Riley Jane had her one-month checkup on Monday and everything went great. She is now a whopping 8 lbs. 6 oz. and 20 1/2 inches long. She is teeny tiny and very healthy...that was until Monday evening when Billy noticed her raspy voice. Well, she slept for 6 hours that night. Which was odd but much needed by me. When I went to get her she was coughing and coughing, trying to cry through lots of congestion. :( Yikes! We went back to the doctor Tuesday morning so now we're doing saline drops and Pedialyte to fight the mucus. This is a picture of her resisting the Pedialyte (love the crazy hair 24/7). This is viral and could last 2-3 weeks. It's hard for any of us to sleep with her gurgling and coughing up mucus all night. She is such a sweet little baby even when she's sick.

This morning after bath time she seems like her happy self.


  1. I am sooo sad and sorry for Riley!!! I really thought we were over our sickness... :( I am, but Rebekah got a cough again, too! I am so sorry if we are to blame! We are praying for a speedy recovery for all...she is adorable in both pics!!

  2. We love you guys and hope Rebekah is also feeling better! I heard about your appointment today. Another busy one, huh? Fun!

  3. Bec,
    I'm tardy in looking at the blog but am now extra sorry that she has an ear infection! I can't wait to see you tomorrow!! It seems like forever since I've gotten to see you and Riley Jane!

  4. I am so sorry to hear about her illness! I hope she is feeling much, much, much better!
