Thanks for all of the earlier comments on the last post I put up today.  Dr. Uma must have had a lot of messages on her machine today needing appointments because she decided to see patients for a little bit today for sick kids.  So, Chris took Colin over and my poor baby has strep throat and an upper respiratory infection.  His lungs were clear, so we were very happy about that.  However, as many of you know, we face challenges when it comes to putting new things in Colin's mouth.  Therefore, he has NOT been very receptive to any of the medication to treat his infections.  I just have this knot of worry in my stomach because while we typically would then try to "hide" the medicine, Colin doesn't want ANYTHING to eat (including ice cream!) so this trick isn't working either.  We managed to get the first round in tonight after 3 attempts that blatantly FAILED.  I just hope he feels better enough in the morning tomorrow that he wants to eat and then we can hide a little bit more.  

The only thing he got excited for tonight was a bath.  When he was done, i got him all nice and cozy in his bathrobe (was handed down to him from his buddy Liam!).  He looked so cute.  

Unfortunately, Chris doesn't feel well either, and I am fighting the headache and achiness which has all made me feel pretty bummy and kind of put a damper on my Christmas spirit at the present moment.  Hoping everyone feels better soon!
