First Cold

I have been sooo lucky. My daughter is 10 months old and she has her first cold. So here I am freaking out about her first "illness," and getting crazy looks from other moms. In my defense, most babies get there first colds much earlier and no one looks twice at the concerned mom taking her itty bitty baby to the pediatrician. But since my baby is older people think I am overreacting. But I had no idea what to expect. I know I'm a little too nervous about things, but I wanted to make sure I was doing the right things for her.

Anyway, she checked out just fine. No ear infection or anything else. And hopefully it stays that way! But the poor thing has been so congested for days. I feel so bad for her! But she has also been so snuggly always wanting to cuddle with mommy.... and I love that! So I am enjoying some parts of this cold :)

She has been pretty upbeat through most of this, but she looks so sad. Her poor eyes have been watering like crazy. But I think she looks cute anyway :) So we are surviving the first cold! Hopefully she is back to her perky little self by this weekend!!

I am the same way with Aedan, he is a year old,he has ear infections right now, and I rush the pediatrician like he fell off a cliff.
