Jodie Sweetin, actress and new mom, recently blogged about her 5-month-old daugther, Zoie’s, first cold. All new moms can relate to the trauma of the first cold!
So Zoie has gotten her first cold this week — I guess it was bound to happen. But we’ve been to the doctor once already and we’re going back again in just a little while. She’s got the stuffy nose, coughing, sneezing, the whole bit. It’s so hard to be a mom and see your little one not feeling good and know that there’s really not much you can do except wipe their nose and give them extra hugs. With her sick though, that’s definitely taken up the last couple days of our time. Cody and I did go to the release of the new EA sports game, Facebreaker. It’s a really cool new boxing game and Cody had fun since he’s really into the video games. We got a Nintendo Wii being sent to us from the event as a gift, I’m way excited for that! I want to get the workout mat that goes along with it, mix my regime up a little. And the bowling and tennis look fun too! Finally a way to play video games and actually burn a few calories while you’re doing it. There are a few other events that we were scheduled to do, but with Zoie not feeling hot, I think we may just stay home with her. I started doing a scrapbook for her too, it’s really turning out cute! While I was out running errands the other day, Cody did a page for her and put it in there. I think it’s something she’ll really enjoy looking at when she gets older. Well, it’s off to the doctor again. I think she has to get some shots today too, I think they’re worse for me and Cody than they are for her! Although it’s nothing that a lot of hugs and kisses won’t fix.
