Sicky Sickerson

Norah came down with a cold over the weekend. We noticed that she seemed a bit congested before she went to bed on Saturday, and by Sunday morning, she had a clear case of Booger Baby. She clearly didn't feel good on Sunday and Monday, but her only distinct symptom was nasal congestion, so we have been doing what we can in terms of clearing her nose out *she HATES the aspirator* and making sure she gets plenty of rest and plenty to eat (a plugged nose doesn't seem to hinder her appetite so that's good).

So, then yesterday, I noticed I had what felt like a dry throat, but obviously, it was the start of my own cold. Thus, I woke up last night to my own running nose, and this morning, feel congested and ucky. Thankfully, there's no fever, so the ick seems to be concentrated in just my head, which is more manageable.

But I still didn't run this morning. Instead, I opted to take a Tylenol Cold and spend the extra time in bed with Kleenex shoved up my nose.

**On the strange side, I dreamt that Norah didn't have a cold; instead, in my dream, she had been teething. So, in the dream, I went into her room and she smiled up at me with 8 teeth! (Yes, I counted them in my dream.) So this morning, when I checked on her, I just had to feel her gums. No teeth. Phew!

Liam is sick this week too, and he HATES the snot-sucker (or, as my husband calls it, the de-snerfer. Don't ask.) It's so sad when they're not feeling good.

Is Norah still sleeping through the night? I know our kids are about the same age so I'm just curious. Liam used to, but now he's up 2-3 times again. I hear it gets worse when teething starts. :(

Elias is teething, just started a few days ago, it was a mystery to us and we finally figured it out that it could start this early. I took him to the docs today to make sure he wasn't cranky for any other reasons - allery or virus and it was just the teething thing. Good luck when it does start on your end!
I hope your little one gets better fast with her cold!

Crystal said...

You have a pattern forming of being sick around the holidays-first Halloween and now Thanksgiving! Hope you can kick this cold's butt quickly and I hope little Norah feels better soon, too!

Sorry to hear you gals are sick. Don't breathe on us on Thursday! Especially Rylee - it's been a month of ickiness for her already - I can't take anymore! :)

Nicole said...

Hope you both feel better soon. And, she doesn't get any teeth too soon.

MCM Mama said...

Sorry to hear you are both sick! It's been a couple of months since we've all been healthy at the same time here.
