Isaac caught a bug

Not a real one.  I would have been happier with that.  Instead he caught a head cold.  Saturday morning he woke up with with a stuffy nose, which quickly turned gross every time he sneezed.  Unfortunately this new gross experience surprised him and made him cry each time.  There was a lot of crying Saturday.  Between the fever and not being able to breathe, he had a rough day.  I did manage to get him down for three one-hour naps.  He couldn't handle anything longer than that as he couldn't breathe through his nose and woke up crying.  Sanitizing everything in sight, lots of sleep, tv, books, an extra bath, and medicine helped that day.  The good things included hanging out in pjs all day and extra snuggles.

Here he is taking it easy and playing with washable blocks. He is enamored with his $1.00 pumpkin for Halloween.

He woke up nearly 2 hours later than normal on Sunday, but was already better.  He had a slight fever again, but he was obviously on the mend.  He could breathe much better and actually smiled several times that day.  We still hung out in pjs most of the day and watched tv and read a lot.  I put him down for a nap a little early as I was feeling a bit achy and needed a nap as well.  He napped 4 hours!! We had to wake him up.  He obviously needed it.  In the evening, Alex took the boys out for a walk for some fresh air as Isaac was definitely on the mend.  Isaac has a bit of a lingering cough, but is doing very well!  We are still going to take it easy for a few days, though to make sure it doesn't come back.

This morning, Isaac woke up nearly two hours later than normal again.  He was up coughing at night, so I'm sure that contributed to his wake time. We are definitely going to take it easy today as his body must still be in recovery mode.

Unfortunately, Alex caught the same thing Isaac had, so I am at home this morning.  I'm still feeling fine, but I'm not pushing it either as I don't want to take any chances.

On a happy note, Isaac and I picked out his Halloween costume already.  He was the one who wanted it, I swear.  He kept pointing at it.  Granted, it was probably since it had a cute baby on it, but still.  I took that as enough encouragement to get it.
