Cold, again

Well now, its been a few days.  We’re nursing a cold here again.  This is the position Popeye and I have been in for the past 30 hours.

(Notice how the sleeper is too small, he’s moved into 9-month clothes.) May 153 May 164

We tried propping his mattress up.

May 166

May 165

But it didn’t really work.

He’s been battling a stuffy nose, mucus in his throat, and now crusty eyes.   May 172

Poor thing just doesn’t feel good, but he still keeps a good spirit. May 184May 174

I tried to catch a real smile by lowering the camera. Did you know he’s got dimples? 

Three of them.

He was showing them to me as long as the big black camera was no where to be seen.May 175 But then he discovered the camera again. May 178

And this too, shall pass.

I need a nap.

And a margarita.

Okay, not really, I'll take a Medori sour.

Yup, that’s what I need.

But then again… its not really about me right now, is it?

He sure is cute!! I hope he feels better soon. It doesn't take much to get those little noses plugged up. Got the humidifier going?

I need a nap, a good night's sleep, and 2 margaritas! Boyd being 3 years old is HARD! I don't know what I'm doing anymore.

Colds and stuffy noses are the worst for babies, they just can't sleep. I feel your pain. I hope he is better soon. He sure is a cutie pie! :)

Poor baby and mama. Colds are terrible, expecially with the little ones. Hope he is feeling better QUICK so that you can get some sleep!!

Cindy said...

I can so relate, we dealt with our fair share of sleep interrupting stuffy noses. A humidifier helped us quite a bit.
hope he is sleeping like a champ again real soon and that mama gets that margarita!
Have a happy day
