Breathing Through Your Nose

This is something that most of us take for granted until a horrible cold strikes and our nose is so stuffed up that we are forced to breathe through our mouth.  The cold germ, "Toots" from Curious George as Z likes to call him, came into our house a week ago.  Z suffered first and had to miss his Valentines Day Party at school.  It started with a low temp, runny nose and then the horrible cough set in.

We TRIED to keep Z away from C but 5 days later...C came down with her own version of "Toots".  She has had it much worse and the poor little baby keeps looking up at us with a look of such confusion and pain.  Her little cry is so sad and we wish there was something more we could do.  She has been sick for three days (three nights of no sleep for us) so today I took her to the doctor.  They ruled everything out and said it is just a really bad cold.  I am already doing everything they suggested so we just have to wait it out.

It is S's dads 60th birthday this weekend and we would like to all be healthy and ready to party by Saturday!  I hope that C is better by then and that S and I stay clear of "Toots".  It will be hard to do considering how little sleep we have gotten this past week with sick kids but we like breathing through our noses so we plan to fight :)

Collin was sick a couple of weeks ago and it was no fun! I hope you're all healthy and ready to celebrate this weekend. Fingers crossed for you all!
