Under the Weather

It finally happened, the boys got their first colds. It started with Carter last Thursday. He had a cough, runny nose, etc. By Sunday, everybody in the house had it. We thought it was important that we all get as much sleep as possible, so we moved the boys' swings to our bedroom and all four of us slept in our room on Sunday and Monday night. The boys are still stuffy and have problems breathing through their noses when they're on their backs, so we moved the swings to their room tonight so they could sleep in them until they can breath easier. Greg had some vacation time saved up and was able to take Monday and today off to help me out with the boys. They haven't been too bad, but when they don't feel good, it's nice to be able to give them some extra love & attention. I really hope they feel better soon, it's so pitiful to hear them coughing and sniffling. Evan had finally started sleeping through the night last week, he did it 3 nights in a row. Carter had slept through the night for almost a week straight, and then they got sick. I really hope that they go back to sleeping through the night fairly easily after they start feeling better.

Our bedroom, with two swings and a humidifier in there. It was a crowded mess, but we were all able to get some sleep, which was the most important thing.

Evan's cute pjs.
Still smiling.
