Once we returned from NYC, the remainder of January found Roya with back-to-back viruses. I’m grateful for our wonderful pediatricians for accommodating us into their schedules and always making us feel like a priority. Thankfully, the doctors ruled out ear infections and pneumonia, but that didn’t make the fevers any easier. Roya’s viruses also caused me to get a sinus infection and then bronchitis. As any caregiver knows, trying to take care of a sick child when you’re sick is especially exhausting!
When Roya didn’t have a fever, our doctors encouraged us to take her out of the house. Even though she was fussier than normal, she was still a very good baby. Some of the highlights of the month included the following:
We made it to Bob Madigan‘s farewell party at Carmine’s to celebrate his 50 years in media and wish him well on his way to Maine.
The following week, we celebrated a dear friend’s birthday at Peacock Cafe. The Birthday Girl went above and beyond, even making sure that everyone had Dior party favors!
When Roya saw a woman at our table who was expecting, she immediately turned and gently put her hand on the woman’s belly. Lucky for us, the woman didn’t mind the touch and found it endearing!
