Try to ignore the smiling baby in the pics...Evan is indeed sick. She got a cold from big brother DJ and now she's coughing and snotting up a storm. Normally, I wouldn't worry about a silly little cold, but upper respiratory infections are going around and those can be super bad for babies. So, I took a half day today and took Evan to the doctor. For the most part she's fine, no breathing treatments necessary, just a ordinary cold.
The doctor gave us a script for infant cough medicine, a trial size of saline nose spray, told us to keep the house humidity at 45% (how in the world am I supposed to measure house humidity????) and she should get better within a week.
