Ethan has had a cold for a few days and Kody has it now, too. DH even is coming down with it I think...boy sleeping last night was a bit tough. Ethan's old enough that we can give him children's Benadryl, to try to dry out his nasal passages at night, so that helps (plus it knocks him out for 3 or 4 hours), but he still wakes up in the middle of the night wanting me. He's a mama's boy I guess because when he's crying, he doesn't really want Daddy. Anyway it's hard to coordinate helping him with taking care of Kody because Kody needs put back to sleep about every hour. So it's inevitable that he'll need me the same time as Ethan, usually. Thank goodness DH is home though so he can try help where he can!

So sorry you have so much going on. It was rough enough when Avery was sick so little, I can't imagine having 2 little ones feeling bad. Hope they get better soon and you don't lose your sanity in the meantime.

Aw Joy, I'm sorry, that's so tough. We dealt with illness the first two weeks of Lexi's life, it was so hard. I hope they get better soon!

That sucks! I had the worst cold EVER the day I gave birth to Lilah, and within a few days, she had it. She had it for 3 weeks! It was AWFUL. I hope you're all better soon!

Try giving them a very warm bath at night and then swaddle them.. Make sure they're super warm when they're sleeping.

Can't imagine having two sick kids. I'll just shoot myself. Stay strong momma.

It's going ok, DH is helping which helps me. I was able to get to the grocery store last night even though I had to take Kody along. He slept most of the time there which was great. I feel like I've sort of worked out a rhythm despite the kids being sick. I haven't had a shower yet today, and I'm starving, lol but we're making it.
