Dave and I both seem to have caught Cate’s cold. I suppose it was inevitable, what with the baby snot flying everywhere all over the house. And my guess is that it isn’t as bad for us, since we’re adults and have some basic comfort measures at our disposal – like, we can blow our own noses, and we’re both pretty comfortable pushing the recommended Sudafed dosage to its absolute limits.
Still, if this is what Cate has felt like over the past few days, I’m really glad we opted to take her to the doctor on Saturday rather than ride it out until today. Poor kiddo, it’s pretty miserable.
And now I’m going to try to actually get some work done, since Cate is finally taking a nap. More tomorrow.
I think that colds are much harder on babies than on adults, mostly because, like you say, they can’t blow their own noses or take decongestants, but I think they just last longer in babies. I hope all of you are feeling better very soon.
