My Boo is sick

Naomi woke up this morning with really bad congestion and snot coming down her nose. Poor kid sounded so raspy. She still seemed happy, although she cried a bit when we were trying to wipe her nose and use Little Nose saline drops. After she ate she cuddled up on my shoulder and then just fell right asleep. She used to do this all the time when she was little, but now that she's more alert, if I'm holding her she always wants to look around. Poor boo must have been totally tuckered out from her cold. So we put a hat on her, put her in her sleep sack and bundled her up so she could take a morning nap. We cancelled all of our plans for this afternoon too. Today was supposed to be my first outing without Naomi! I was going to meet some girlfriends for lunch in the city. But I know I'd be sitting there the whole time wondering how Naomi was doing, so I decided to cancel. I'm sure in a couple of months when Naomi has a little cold it won't even phase me, but it definitely made me sad to see her so uncomfortable.

Edit - so the little girl has a mild fever.  But she's still hanging in there like a champ, she's hardly fussed at all and still smiles and laughs, but she's definitely a lot more mellow, and wants to be held more.  Poor kid.
