Well, as I'm sure all of you know, Gabe was (or is) sick. I think that he is feeling SO much better now though. I took him to the hospital and they said he had the flu, but yesterday he broke out into a rash on his "trunk"... it wasn't one you could feel- just little red spots all over. I called mom and she said Roseola... looked it up and it seems to fit. He had a high fever for 3 days or more and then when it broke he breaks out into the rash... it is contagious, but seems to affect children 6months- 3years.

So, since the fever has broke and we have been locked in the house ALL week- we are going to the Inner Harbor today! I'm so excited! Seth and I went there when we were dating and I can't wait to look at it now. I keep thinking if it will seem as beautiful as it did 3.5 years ago when I was sooo caught up in everything that had to do with Seth and oh so in love! Not to say I'm not in love still! haha! No, you know how it is though- seeing everything through "rose colored glasses" I guess. Now, it will be a totally different experience taking OUR CHILD there! Gosh, I remember day dreaming about that when I was here with Seth then... oh, how married life and kids would be! I must say that I'm as happy as I thought I would be!

Well, that was a sappy little post, huh?! I love it though! I will take pictures and update when we get back (or tomorrow more likely!)

For the past few days Gabe has been so cranky and whiny and really draining me of energy!! Everytime he goes down for his nap I've been picking up a bit and then crashing with him again because I'm so tired! This morning he woke up with a slight fever... gave him tylenol and it went down, but all day he has been warm (tylenol has been our friend!) He keeps grabbing on the back of his head... don't know if maybe he has a headache or what, but the tylenol doesn't seem to be helping that aspect.

He went down with no problem tonight - and with hardly anything in his tummy... I don't like to eat much when I feel bad either, so I didn't force anything, just made him eat a jar of carrots! I'll keep you updated on how he is tomorrow.
