Poor Malachi got another cold that settled into his chest, making it difficult at best for him to sleep. He gets to coughing and wakes himself up and then has a hard time getting back to sleep (I'm sure his throat was sore!!). We took him into the doctor and they had him to go back on his inhaler. He only needed it for a couple of made an almost immediate difference. We have been inhaler and humidifier-free for the last 2 days!! Yay!! I think it is still bothering him some though, since this morning at church he had a huge (at least for us!!) meltdown. He wanted to go play with Grandma while we were working in the coffeeshop, but after he figured out that meant leaving the area where Mommy and Daddy were, he freaked out and couldn't decide what he wanted. After trying to calm him down unsuccessfully, I asked him if he wanted to go home, to which he said yes, so Daddy finished our shift in the coffee stand and Mommy and Malachi went home so he could relax in his own bed. I think the major issue is that he always wants his nap 2 hours after he wakes up. On a normal Sunday morning, this is usually about the time we get out of church and he can make it through lunch just fine. But since we had to get to church early today, and he was probably not feeling up to par, it just wasn't working for him. Now all three of us have the cold...Samuel and I started feeling crummy New Year's Eve and it has been getting worse since. I am just hoping that it will pass quickly since I can't take a whole lot more than Tylenol. Oh well, cross our fingers, knock on wood, and pray really hard this is the worst it gets this year. Hope you are all feeling well!
