Snot Funny

The boys and I were sick recently and we are finally getting better. This was the first time they were sick since they were a month old. I think that is fantastic considering their immune system is still maturing. I felt so bad as I am sure I gave it to them. I came home one day and Tang said that Dean's nose was dripping. For the next week and a half, they both ended up with some sort of cold and they were congested with tons of drainage.

Seriously, the amount of snot that both of them produced could have filled an 8 ounce Dr. Brown bottle. We used bottles of saline, the nose bulb and the nasal aspirator to clean them out. It just kept coming. Dean was the worst hit and his stuffy nose would wake him several times a night, poor thing could not breathe.

Dean rubbed his face until he was covered in snot. Good thing I was camera ready. He will hate me when he starts dating.

awww, the poor babies. They still look so cute nevertheless :) I had a cold which I tried very hard not to give anyone, but you know how impossible that is, with a baby stuck to you 24 hours a day. Jaxon has a touch of it, but thankfully not a bad one. Hope you and the boys feel super soon. Happy new year!

So cute! Don't forget to use only Preservative free saline solution. I recommend Cleanoz Saline 100% natural in single use applicators ( drugstore.com).
Happy newyear!

I would trade your snot for our vomit. But seriously, neither is much fun at all.
That last booger picture will certainly come in handy down the line.
