Yes, Nate finally caught his first cold, and that is one of the reasons I haven’t been able to update this blog recently. It’s kind of hard to do anything when you have a feverish, sniffling, sneezing infant who wants nothing more than to be held and rocked and carried everywhere (and for some reason he HATES sitting at my computer desk).
Nate gets very angry when his nose is stuffy. But he also doesn’t like nasal aspirators or saline, so I tell him he just has to deal with it. Thank goodness he seems to be a little less stuffy this evening, and he hasn’t run a fever today. He even cracked a smile once or twice.
Isaac made him a get-well card.
The text is a little hard to read. He writes, “Hope you feel better before Christmas. And I hope you don’t have to get two shots in your legs the day after Christmas like I did in 2006.” I can’t believe he remembered that day in such vivid detail.
Isaac also made Nate a Christmas card last week:
So now we know why Isaac loves having 3 brothers. More siblings = more presents!
