Sick Baby

Simon has had his first experience in being sick.


Doesn't he look super cute in his robot jammies?! (Thanks Billingsleys!) It's just a cold, and he's getting better now, but here's how it went down...

Monday
Si had a pretty fussy day and was just acting weird. He wouldn't go down for nap #2 until just before 7:00 pm. His bedtime is 9:00, so I woke him up at 8:00 to make sure he didn't sleep too long and stay up too late. When I woke him up, he was super congested and very upset. I put his jammies on and let him just go back to bed. Si woke up at midnight and was up til about 3:30 am. He kept coughing and sneezing and sounded bad, but he was pretty happy.

Tuesday
Si was up again just before 7:00 am giving me just under 3 1/2 hours of sleep. I was pretty sure it was just the sniffles and that there wouldn't be too much we could do about it, but it being the first time he's ever been sick, I wanted to take him to the doctor just to be sure it wasn't anything more. We got in at 9:15 am and the doc said his lungs and ears were fine. He suggested getting some baby saline drops for his nose and to invest in a cool mist humidifier. We came home, took a nap, then went out and got his nose drops and humidifier. Once again, he did not want to go down for nap #2, went to bed around 8:00 pm, woke up around 10:00 and was up til 1:30 am.

Wednesday
Si got up once overnight to eat, went back to bed and got up for the day about 8:00 am. He sounded much better, still a little congested but much better. He's taken several short naps today, too!


On another Simon-related note, he had the biggest poopsplosion of his life today, too! The Huggies could not contain it. I'm talking up the back and down the leg! It was massive.

I am glad he's feeling better, but I wonder if he got it from me :(
