lots of cuddles

The holiday weekend started out perfect--sun, pool time, little brother & girlfriend in town--lots of fun! Even though it stinks that he has to work on holidays, Jordan had a great weekend at the store! (insert huge smile and sigh of relief here) Unfortunately, the nice weather only stuck around for Saturday, and rain clouds (and thunder and lightning) took over. It was okay though because with the rain clouds came one heckuva summer cold for the monkey. It hit him like a brick wall Sunday afternoon. He is pitiful-coughing, sneezing, nose running like a faucet...poor baby. This made for lots of cuddle time for me and the little guy (and his Mimi when I needed a break). Sunday night he started off sleeping in his carseat, then he moved to my chest, but he still couldn't breathe, so we moved into the glider. Ugh, what a long night! And he wouldn't nap unless being held. He did sleep well last night, though, and is currently napping in his crib. I hope that means it's getting out of his system. He has been stuffed up several times before, but this is the first time he has had such a bad runny nose. I was always so grossed out when I saw little kids with snot on their faces, thinking, "why doesn't their mother wipe it off??" Now I see that it is impossible to keep up with a little one's runny nose. I wipe as much as I can, but it would have to be constant in order to keep snot off of his face at all times! Oh, and though they may seem like a huge waste of money, I'm so happy that I picked up a pack of Boogie Wipes a few months back. They have come in quite handy!

Don't forget, today is the last day for the Cutesy Crochet and Paper Crafts giveaway! Get your entries in before the end of the day!
