In the last few days Charlie and Lily have come down with their first colds. Lily started first, with a cough beginning on Friday. I, of course, freaked out and called the pediatrician's office immediately. The phone nurse told me that it sounded like Lily was starting with a cold, but that we shouldn't worry too much. She said that even though Lily is a preemie, she's now strong and otherwise healthy and should be able to deal with the cold that was most likely coming. Sure enough, by the next day she had not only a cough but a runny nose, sneezing, etc. Thankfully, she seemed pretty unbothered by it. She had a little trouble napping and sleeping at night the first day, but otherwise she's her normal buggy self. Predictably, Charlie caught her cold as well. We tried our best to keep that from happening (sterilizing toys, etc.) but there isn't really too much we could do. Charlie started yesterday with the cough and runny nose, but like Lily, he isn't too bothered other than a little disrupted sleep. We're hoping they are both over the colds soon!
Just a reminder that there's still time to join our team for the March of Dimes March for Babies walk on April 25th, or to make a donation to the cause. Team Three Cheers for Babies has some amazing friends - we currently have over 50 walkers joining us on the day and have raised over $2,700 in donations! And this Friday, my awesome gym, Gold's Gym Lawrenceville, is hosting a VIP Class fundraising event with proceeds going to our team! We're so excited and can't wait for the walk. Please join us if you can!
Happy Charlie rocking his Jumperoo. He loves to bounce!
No cold is tough enough to stop Lily from attempting to cram each and every toy into her mouth, no matter how large.
