Dear Alice- Week 40

Wednesday, December 05, 2012

Dear Alice,

You have been under the weather all week! A temperature, cough, runny nose and soar throat. You poor thing. You actually look like a tiny Rudolf .. though with little red cheeks as well. Mummy has let you sleep with her in the big bed... mainly so we can all get some sleep. I have literally let you sleep whenever and wherever you want these past few days, even on me! I hate seeing you ill, it is the worst feeling knowing I can't take it away :(

This means that this week you haven't done much. It's so odd seeing you lying down quietly in the day instead of crawling about and standing up on everything. I miss the screaming and babbling! We did manage to get out once for a walk around the block, but it was too cold for you so I took you back home instead. To be fair, this is the first proper illness you have had since... since you were born! So we have had a pretty lucky escape from those germs until now! Hopefully you will recover soon and be your usual self for Christmas!

A plus to the constant snoozing and quietness is that mummy has had lots of time to scour the internet for your Christmas pressies! I'm torn between a play pen (you love hiding in things!) and a ball pit (mainly for mummy to play in...). I will probably end up buying both to be honest!

Anyway, it is 8pm and I am going to bed so that I can maybe get a couple of hours sleep before your next scream! Ah... I think I'll just bring you up to bed at 10 actually. I want to keep an eye on you and make sure you don't burn up in the night!!

Love you Monkey
