The Summer of the Cold

No, I'm not talking about the weather. A heat index of 108 degrees tells me otherwise.

What I am speaking of is the ridiculous virus Landon and I have shared this summer. We got it from Randy in June (yes, he was sick, and I still kissed him!). Typical symptoms... cough, cold, sore throat, etc. What is not normal is that it lasted for a month. Finally, this past Monday, my little guy was pretty much back to normal. But guess what he woke up with on Thursday morning? Yup. Another cold. Courtesy of my sweet family this time. ;)

He's normally a great sleeper - goes down between 7/7:30 and gets up between 7/7:30 the next morning... but not when he's sick. Any of you mommies find anything that particularly helps? Other than the typical remedies.. saline drops, humidifier, etc.

I've gotta say, though, for the most part, he's still pretty happy. Definitely not my temperament when I'm feeling icky. Kudos to you, son!


Blogging... Again

I started the whole blogging process a long time ago, but then, well... life happened. Randy got a new job, we moved into a new house, had a baby (a life-changing event, in case you were wondering), and then, just as we were finally getting the hang of being parents (yeah, right), Randy got the phone call that he'd been selected for a pilot in the Marine Corps. I'll write more about that later. Anyway, since we are going to be moving here, there, and everywhere, I thought I would (re)start a blog to keep our distant friends and family in the loop. (Especially my mom, who refuses to get on Facebook even though someone mysteriously created an account for her - and no, it wasn't me!). I'm not sure how diligent I will be... but I'll try.

Forgive me in advance for my lack of blog etiquette and graphic design knowledge. I'm learning.

But for now, I must tend to a little stuffy-nosed baby who has discovered that flip-flops make good teethers.
