It's Not Christmas Without ...

A sick kid.

Brandt is just getting over a cold. Joe is more than halfway through it, although he's still miserable (for some reason colds take their toll on Joe, but this one could just be really bad). And last night Lillian was so restless and I could tell she doesn't feel well. When she cried she sounded a little hoarse and she had some minor snot issues. She didn't seem comfortable at all and didn't want to be put down, so I ended up holding her for the better part of 4 hours between 12:30 - 4:30am. I did catch up on some TV, though.

Christmas of 2007, Brandt's 1st Christmas, he got an ear infection around the 21st.

Christmas of 2008, Brandt's 2nd Christmas, he got an ear infection around the 12th.

So far we seem to be escaping the dreaded ear infection, but I hope Lillian doesn't get the really bad version of the cold that Joe has. She goes to the doctor tomorrow for her 2 month check and I don't know if she'll be able to get her vaccines if she's still not feeling well. But at least we're already going to the doctor so I don't have to make a special appointment.

I'm right there with you. Kathryn has been battling the sinus infection from hell since September and has some sort of other crud on top of it. Sarah has an awful cough that she just can't kick. Merry Christmas to us!
