Day 47: Only a Cold

Last week both of the babies got sick for the first time, nothing like putting a first time mom over the edge. I took Zaya's temperature and found out it was a little high and immediately fumbled around searching for my phone to call the pediatrician. I didn't know what to do. My baby was sick and I was heart sick for her. The pediatrician asked, "Did you give any Tylenol?" I said, "no, I called you!" I think I heard her giggle then in a very calm voice she instructed me to give her Tylenol and watch the fever. I watched it alright. Zaya didn't leave my arms all night. 2 days later Chase started coughing a horrible sounding cough. This put me over the edge so I took them in to make sure everything was alright. It was and it is. It's just a cold. I watched my babies suffer from this stupid cold all week coughing, not being able to breath, having to take medicine and get squirts up their nose. It's a horrible thing for mom's heart to see her babies suffer. I couldn't imagine if it was something worse then a cold.

Today I'm grateful it's only cold.

She's even cute with a snotty nose!
