YOU'RE HIRED!

Yes! We hired the nanny! I'm so freaking excited I just can't contain it! Big woot. Like: BIG. I'm so thrilled that she wanted to work with us. I really hope it all works well. She is coming tomorrow so that we can talk about details. Please, any suggestions of what I should show her and make sure of?

In other news, Sacha has a runny nose. He hasn't been sick before, so dealing with this is a new mothering thing for me. I think that it's just because he's teething (his top 2 gums seem very swollen) as he has no other cold symtoms. This morning he blew a snot bubble out of his nose. An amazing feat, I know. I'm going to mark it down in his baby book. Friday night and Saturday night Sacha was up 3-4 times during the night, either because he was in pain for his teeth or he couldn't breathe. Last night he woke up just his usual once. I had given him a homeopathis remedy for teething before he went to sleep so perhaps that is what made the difference. Anyone have suggestions (non medicinal) for dealing with a runny nose?

All you can really do for a runny nose is have a humidifier in his room, squirt some saline up his nose, and suction it out. Our son just had his first cold recently, and it was miserable for 2-3 nights just keeping his nasal passages open for him to breathe.

Chicka's had 2 colds and they've been awful. Hope this turns out to be nothing. I think that Boiron - the same company that makes Camilia for teething - has something for cold symptoms but I've never tried it.

Congrats on the nanny! That's great news! Coming my way any time soon?

Congrats on getting the great nanny! I was also going to say saline and a humidifier. Hope he is feeling better soon!

Congratulations! What peace of mind to have as a nanny someone you like and trust. And that wasn't very much searching, eh? Woot, indeed!

No suggestions, but I'm not looking forward to the day when Tyler has his first ailment. I have absolutely no idea how to deal with a sick infant!

Hooray for hiring the nanny!

Sorry about the sickness, though I'm sure he's over it now. The only good news I have for you is that it's only ONE sick baby at a time! :)
