Cold is Teh Suck

Poor little snot monster.

She and I are at Nana's having a weekend away -- I think the two of us got 2 or 3 hours sleep last night. I'm freakin' exhausted.
I just couldn't settle her -- not with nursing, not with snuggles, not with the two combined. Even co-sleeping would only last until I started to drift off. It was a rough night.
I can understand though. She's congested, she's super snotty - she can't breath, and she certainly can't understand why not. I'm sure it's terrifying.

If cold = teh suck, then Johnson's soothing vapor bath = teh answer.
She'd been in the warm bath for approximately 32 seconds before she started giggling, splashing and smiling. She's still in a great mood. Who knows how long it will last . . . I don't care. It was totally worth it.

Oh no! I hope the cold goes away soon.

Oy, I didn't remember the baths, the struggles with the nasal extractor (aka "snot sucker" chez etc) and the stoodip sleep deprived stumbles until just now. Hang in there, babe.

Add insult to injury -- I got it too.

Snot sucker here too!
