Sharing stuffy noses, etc.

Emily & Lincoln shared the first of what is sure to be many colds this past week. They were both extremely mild, but still disruptive. Lincoln has been worse since this is the first time he is experiencing a stuffy nose--mostly just when laying down to sleep. That has meant he wakes up a lot (like 5x/night) because he's frustrated he can't breathe normally through his nose. Add to that a toddler who has also been waking up in the middle of the night for various random reasons and that equals a VERY tired mommy!

On the brighter side, both Emily & Lincoln took a 3-hour nap at roughly the same time on Tuesday afternoon, so I was able to spend 2 hours in bed, too. God provides! Lincoln is also starting to take longer naps during the day. Yesterday was 2 hours in the afternoon and today was 1 1/2. Progress!

I haven't witnessed it in person, but Lincoln can definitely roll over to his tummy now because I found him in that position twice today in his crib and he was not happy about it! :o)

We are dealing with the same thing right now. Jaden and I both got colds a few weeks ago, but they were very mild. I've been fighting a new one all week again -- and Jaden got the worst end of it. It's horrible when they're sick!!
