Grace's first cold

We're getting through it. Surprisingly it hasn't been that bad. She's still happy, smiling between sneezing. She had trouble napping in her crib due to her congestion, so she napped in her infant chair today and seemed OK with that. We took her to the pediatrician, who was very busy with tonnes of other kids with colds. He has this really cool machine that gives quick saline sprays and suction. Bam, bam, see you in three days! Grace is sleeping now, poor thing. So tired. But I'm happy to say I think I suffered more through this cold than she did!

I was thinking the other day, how boring my blog is. All about me and Grace with random spatterings of Korea-related stuff. But people actually read weird. I'm glad some people find it interesting. That's good. For me, it's become a bit of a journal. I think I'm going to print out all the posts about Grace after one year and put them in her baby book so she can laugh one day about what a worry wart of a mom I was!

I remember sitting in the bathroom with a steaming shower going holding my baby. It seemed to unclug the lungs. Maybe they don't do that anymore, my babies are in their twenties.

Did you ever find a home for your cat?

Forget the saline. If she's congested, put a few drops of breast milk in each nostril. It thins out the snot & it's all natural.
