Baby's First Cold and Other Stuff...

Wellll, the baby got his first cold, fortunately it's a mild one and he's getting better.  So far, its only affected his sleep for one night, we've been using the cool mist humidifier and a vapor plug-in and they seem to help.  Things are a little different than when my kids were infants, he got a little Tylenol when he had a fever, but no more cold medicine for babies, guess doctors have decided it does them no good.  Although he's been sick, it hasn't deterred him from learning to turn over onto his tummy, only problem is when he does it in his crib at night before he goes to sleep and starts yelling for someone to come turn him over.  So we're not running in and out, we have been getting him to sleep and then putting him in the crib, just until he learns to turn himself back over.  Usually he's put into the crib drowsy but not asleep so he would learn to go to sleep by himself, which he did quite awhile ago with no problems.  My daughter is lucky, he's been sleeping 8-10 hours a night since he was about 2 and 1/2 months old, but he's a big boy, he now weighs 17 pounds. 

Not too long ago, I posted a photo of my daughter's cat, Tommy.  Sadly, he was just wasting away and had to be put down, he went very quickly and peacefully.  We will miss TC, he was a big part of our family for 16 years.  Was very hard to do, especially since we just lost our little Demi dog in June.  They are both buried out in our back yard under the Rose of Sharon bushes. 

Guess that's all I have for now, hope everyone is enjoying these cooler temps, look like it might get downright chilly in some places!
