I hate snot and buggies! EWW!! Unfortunately as a mom I guess I am going to have to get use to wiping away these wonderful beauties. When Cooper woke up this morning, his entire left nostril was caked over and closed up with snot. I had the privilege of peeling away the sludge so my poor little boy could breath. After I finished opening his airway, he sneezed. Yep you guessed it, and he blew a huge wet one right on my shirt. I started to nurse him, but he was having a lot of trouble breathing so I thought it was best to get the snot sucker out. So I put some saline solution up his nose and proceeded to suck a ton of yellow snot from his nose. He hates it when I suck the snot out of his nose- you could probably hear his screams two zip codes away. Then of course, later in the day he just has snot running down his nose, which I must wipe unless he wants it ending up all over him.

I cannot wait until Cooper is old enough where I can hand him a tissue and say, “blow your nose!”

Head Cold

Yep, Cooper and I (Susanne) have a head cold. Never fun to have a head cold if you ask me. I feel pretty run down and tired. I slept for 11 hours last night. My head hurts, my throat hurts, and I have some nasal congestion.

Cooper has a stuffy nose and I am sure he feels pretty much the same way I do. He has slept a lot more than usual today. He took a 3 hours nap this morning and is napping right now (2 hours so far). I figured it was best to just let him sleep since he is not feel the greatest either. Poor guy. He screams pretty much the entire time he is awake. I guess it is his way of saying, “hey mom, I don’t feel good.” If I pick him up, he stops screaming so we have been doing a lot of holding and walking together today.

I am just feeling pretty run down. I am hoping that tomorrow will be a better day!
