Burp cloths aren’t up to this task


This morning, no wait, it was yesterday Tuesday, I noticed Tebow’s nose was a little runny. This has happened before. A bit o’ snot to get through the day. It usually goes away quickly. Like in a few hours.

But last night, oh wait, it was this morning. Because 3:30 a.m. is in the morning, right? Well, at 3:30 this morning, Tebow’s night of good sleep became restless sleep. His eyes were closed, but his body was not still. He slept off and on until about 6:30, when he decided it was time to be up. And then it was clear what was going on…

Tebow has his first cold!

The day brought fussiness and more drool/ snot than I think a 5 1/2 month old can actually hold. Which is why we ditched the burp cloths and started using towels to mop up the mess.

Right now we are trying to get him to sleep in the pack ‘n play, but he prefers my lap. I’m not up for sleeping in the recliner again. I just hope he gets better soon.


  1. I remember when Ansley had a stuffy nose at 6 weeks. It never turned into a serious cold but a stuffy nose for a baby who doesn’t know how to breath out her mouth very well…it was just as miserable….on all of us. I will pray that Tebow will get over his cold very quickly. Poor little guy!

  2. Thanks, Erin! We have been blessed to have made it this long without Tebow getting sick. Last night was ok, with a rough spot between 1 and 3. But he is happily jumping up and down in his jumperoo right now, so this makes me happy.
