Bless his Little Nose

Forrest and I both had colds a couple weeks ago and unfortunately, Davis got one too. It started with a tiny little cough, then congestion, then an eye infection and now an ear infection. The kid is 4 weeks old and I've never seen so much medicine! We have eye drops, ear drops, nose drops, and oral medication. It breaks my heart to hear his tiny little cough. Luckily, the cold doesn't seem to bother him. He's been sleeping in his car seat to help prop his head up and I try to give him some relief by sitting in the bathroom with the hot water steaming up the room.

Davis is growing and growing by the minute! He's almost 10 pounds and already wearing some of his 6 month clothes! Davis is sleeping pretty well (or maybe I'm just getting used to no sleep). He usually gives me about 4 straight hours of sleep a night and another good 4 hour nap in the afternoons. Other than that he's wanting to eat every 3 hours and is usually awake (or in and out of sleep). He's a happy baby. Davis loves his swing, his bouncy chair, the paci, and bath time.

We have started to research day cares and nannys. I plan on going back to work in December. It's a tough decision, because I know being a stay-at-home mom is the most rewarding job in the world, but I also miss my work. I am looking forward to getting back to work and catching up with my co-workers, but I dread someone else looking after Davis.
