Well, I feel much better, but now Nathan has a full on cold. We went to the doctor yesterday and he has an ear infection and then last night his runny nose became a deep cough as well. He looks pitiful. When you watch him trying to play, but obviously not feeling well it just breaks your heart.
But with all of that said, he did do one thing that made me proud yesterday. He coughed up his first loogie. Granted he coughed it up all over (and I do mean all over) me, but it still is something a dad likes to see.
Speaking a fluids. I picked him up last night when he was coughing and just held him for a while. In less than a minute he was asleep on my shoulder. I didn’t want to put him down. I let him sleep there for over an hour before I finally put him in his bed. When I laid him down the shoulder of my shirt was wet with spit and snot. I don’t think I have ever loved anything or anyone more than I did Nathan at that moment. Go figure.
