Abby has her first full-blown cold. It's not surprising with all the traveling we did last week. The poor thing is just miserable. I took her to the doctor yesterday, and she has the beginnings of an ear infection in her right ear, so she's now on amoxicillin. Apparently, she has her mother's love of the yummy pink stuff because she sucked her first dose down like it was going out of style. When it was all gone she looked at the bottle like "GIVE ME MORE!!"

She looks awful. Her nose is running like a leaky faucet, and she's drooling like crazy because she can only breathe through her mouth. Even her eyes are soaked with tears. Her whole face is puffy and blotchy. When she coughs, she lets out this sad little cry because it hurts so much. It breaks my heart every time I hear it. She's had it since Monday, so hopefully this is the worst of it.

I wrote this post yesterday, but blogger wouldn't let me post it. She looks so much better this morning. She's still not 100 percent, but she's definitely on the mend. Yesterday was definitely the worst day.

Sorry to hear that Abby is sick. It stinks doesn't it. Connor just got over it. They are so pitiful when they don't feel well. We used the Baby Vicks like crazy last week!

Oh poor Abby! That is just so sad. I hate when they are sick.
I wish Gavin liked the medicine. He spits it back at us. This is after it takes three of us to hold him down. He's a punk!
