First Cold

on November 27, 2012

Last week I heard George snoring in the morning and I figured he was getting a cold–and I was right. It started Wednesday with a stuffy nose and very low grade fever and was pretty much over by Sunday. He still has a little lingering cough and running nose, but is doing great!

We used the heck out of the nose frieda— that thing is a life saver. It was especially crucial before nursing. Although, it was traumatic for Clay, even though I was the one doing it! And George actually  got used to it by the end. We went through a pack of boogie wipes, too. But overall, pretty easy to manage!

I feel really lucky that he almost made it to one year old before his first cold–and that it was a very mild one at that! It barley even disrupted his sleep.

The funniest thing is that he has been giving us lots of ‘kisses’ lately, which right now means licking our face with a snotty nose.

So sweet.

And I won’t post a pic of a snotty nose (because ew), so lets go cute and pensive instead.

    And “Kiss – Kiss, Hug – Hug” from me to George! Get ready for your nose to start dripping too!
