Molly, Auntie Kim, and I went to the Renaissance Faire on Saturday. Apparently there was a little too much going on as Molly could not fall asleep no matter how much she rubbed her eyes and I kept her stroller moving. A little after 1 pm (and several laps) we decided to just head out. Of course Molly completely passes out on our way to the car. She slept on and off on the drive home and kept coughing. At the time I thought it was due to the dusty grounds of the ren faire, but looking back it was probably the first signs of her cold. She was overly tired all day and more than a little manic. We kept trying to put her down and she would konk out for 20 minutes or so and then wake up screaming. She woke up every 1-2 hours after we put her down for the night and finally slept for a good chunk between 11 pm and 4 am. When she woke up at 4 am I gave her some boob time and she went back down until a little after 8 am. She woke up snotty and bleary eyed, but in much better spirits. Poor little one had a head cold. She was too snotty to really get some good boob time in (I even got a lovely *heavy* sneeze while eating that ended that session). However, she did have two naps yesterday so that's the up side. I can probably count on my fingers how many second naps she's taken in the last month. She's in pretty good spirits considering how poopy she looks. Molly has already started the lovely habit of wiping her snotty nose on her sleeve. Apparently that's an instinct. Need to pick up more filters for her humidifier today so we can get that running.
