colds are boo.

October 1, 2009

well it happened. probably because the other day i tooted the “harper’s never had a cold a day in her life” horn. they heard me. they heard me and they sent their little germs our way and my poor dear got her first cold. :[ sadness i tell you. it started sunday, and that night and the next day were the worst. fever, congestion, and she was literally up ALL night. i tried sleeping with her on the couch, i tried putting her in her swing (so her nose would drain better), i tried rocking in her chair. the poor thing wasn’t even crying. she was just so congested that no sooner would she lay her head on my chest, and her nose would clog and she would gag on her own snot. it was awful. she was exhausted but couldn’t sleep. what a trooper though. at one point (i think it was 3 in the morning) as Scot and i took her temperature, i looked own and she actually had a smile on her face. red nose beaming, shiny upper lip and all, sounds of yucky stuff caught somewhere between her nose and throat – and she was smiling.

as of today, her nose is still a faucet (when does it end?), Scot and i are in full blown sick mode and i’m officially terrified to leave the house. my mom got it bad also. this sucks.

i do have some pretty cute pics to share though. september 870this one is just sad. monday = the worst of it. 102° fever and NO sleep. poor dear!september 905feeling a bit better on wednesday. september 909

i call this one “mommy and daddy are so screwed when you’re a teenager because you already know how to make faces like this”.

september 932miss modest.

now off to drink sleepy time tea and hope that i can sleep through my old itchy throat and stuffed nose. and to the sickness gods, please spare us the rest of the season – this really blows.

    I made it I made it! And I think I’m caught up now. Phew! Missed you babes! Miss H is crazy cute even when sick and miserable!

    I am so sorry that you guys have the yuck! I hope you feel better soon. We have had many rounds of yuck ourselves (yay, daycare!)and I am sad to say that it never gets any better, sadly.

    Oh yeah and I need a pillow. As in like, now. Go.

    That first picture is so sweet. She looks like she feels miserable, but still pulls off cute. :) And that last pic is hilarious! I hope she is feeling better! We got a humidifier and some vaporizing bath, and that has seemed to help with congestion. Thought I’d throw that out there to help your sweetheart.
