Yes, these little green monsters have decided to take up residence in my home and demand attention from Addie and I this week :( Uugghh, this is Addie's first cold and although its bad to have a sick baby...it's worse when momma is sick too! Im still BF so my selection of medications is minimal and because I'm a first-time mom, I'm scared to take anything. So, we are doing as much "natural" stuff as we can - humidifiers, steam showers, and snot sucking (sorry, I know thats not the most pleasant way to say that). My little girl has been in the best of spirits despite these unwelcome house guests and has really only had one rough night, where she was up every 3 hours because she couldn't breathe through her nose and wasn't quite ready to give up the paci that helps soothe her at night so that she could breathe through her mouth. She actually seems to be handling it better than I but then again she is sleeping during the day and I am only sneaking in a 30 minute nap at lunch (oh yes, closing the door to my office-turning the lights out-curling up on my couch style). I'm hopeful we are on the mend and will be much better by the weekend.
Also, thanks to everyone for the sweet comments yesterday about my papa - it really meant alot to me. I apologize for not keeping up all my blog reading and commenting - I miss it and hope to be rid of these unwelcome guests by the weekend!
And because, I don't want that ugly green monster to be the only picture on this post - here's a pic of my girl enjoying some bananas from last week:
