Carolyn’s first cold

April 27, 2010

Carolyn has been a bit stuffy for a few days and we thought it was the pollen. She has been increasingly irritable so I took her temp and while elevated was just under a true fever. To be safe I took her to the doctor and she was just as happy and pleasant as can be. She is 16lbs 14oz now! The doctor said that she caught a little cold because she is always putting things in her mouth to relieve her teething and picked up germs. Her nose is running and stuffy at times. Her snore got really loud too. She screams when she eats and the doctor said the stuffed nose / congestion makes her teething pain that much worse. She is doing fine without Tylenol and we were told only to contact the doctor if she worsens. After returning from the doctor and having a snack she scooted herself across the living room floor. She was rolling on her side to look up at me and was reaching for toys. As I moved them further away she kept inching towards them. Amazing determination. Tonight she is feeding slowly because of the pain but Michael has found that beat boxing really helps capture her focus so she is not thinking about it and lets her drink easier. Poor baby

    poor carolyn!! i hope she gets to feeling better soon. we have been speculating the same things about beau–he has a runny nose and a little bit of a cough that i suspect he caught from his daddy. he’s been a little fussy, too. not sure if it’s a cold or maybe some allergies…

    Sorry about her cold, but she was due to have one sometime. She has been very healthy so far. We will call you when we get home.
