Not feeling good

For the first time in Eli's short life, he's not feeling so hot. Or rather, he is feeling hot. He has a low-grade fever, a runny nose, and a bad cough. It's likely just a cold, but we really don't like to see him feel bad! The worst part is doing the nasal drops/aspirator suction every time he eats or sleeps. He really doesn't like that, and our doctor's office strongly recommended it to prevent infection. He probably thinks we're trying to torture him. I wish we could explain to him why we're doing it.

If there is a good side to this, it's that he's in the middle of a 3-hour nap right now, which has given me enough time to clean, work out, take a shower, eat lunch, start the laundry, and update the blog. I'm actually caught up on what I wanted to do today--except organize Eli's room. That will have to be done later.

I don't blame him for hating the nasal aspirator... my doctor actually recommended me not to use the one they give you in the hospital, use a Nosefrida instead, it is so much quicker and doesnt go inside the nose...so it doesn't feel so awful for them!

Poor little man. It does suck to be sick, but it sucks even more to see your little one sick. I hope he shakes this thing soon! In the meantime, fingers cross for more great naps!
