Hello. My name is Christa.

I live on a largish island,
with my husband, our cat, and our tiny baby boy.

kira-and-babytj I just keep telling myself that it’s impossible to die of snot, or else there wouldn’t be any humans left. But holy shit, that coughing, sputtering, and screeching is the worst thing to hear - heartbreaking. Our poor little boys. :’(

misskatiefantastico Saving the ferry for when I’m not basically having a breakdown. I feel like a jerk because Yan’s been trying to get to Vancouver since last November, when we got back from France, but I was sick then (airplanes always make me sick), we did Seattle instead in Dec, and then I was pregnant and morning sick… I’ve basically been blocking this trip for a full year.

kira-and-babytj Oh no! How are you handling it? Are you giving him anything? Are you able to sleep? I bought some homeopathic cold drops, but I can’t tell if it’s helping.

Thank you. :) I very much did not properly appreciate the sleep deprivation aspect of parenting a newborn before this past month. And it just keeps going. O.O

We made it half an hour all in bed before realising no one was going to be able to sleep. So Yan is getting first sleep shift (he got a couple hours before I put Armand down with him at 1:30) and I’m getting first shift of stay awake to hold the baby upright so he doesn’t choke on snot and can properly sleep.

It’s 3:30 am, I haven’t slept a single minute yet tonight, and whoever gave us this cold is the devil.

Irrationally afraid of going to bed in case it wakes up the baby, who is finally asleep for a minute.  A congested 5 week old is so damned depressing - he doesn’t understand why he can’t breath through his snotty little nose.  So he screams.  And the only thing to calm him is milk.  Which backs up in his snotty pipes and ends up coming back out his nose with more snot.  Repeat forever.

Maybe I’ve forgotten what it was like over the past month, but right now I would happily go through labour again to make Armand’s head cold go away. He keeps waking up, coughing and sputtering mucus and/or screaming. I’ve got him sleeping on an incline on a pillow in my lap, but fuck, I’m exhausted and need sleep to get over my own cold. I don’t think Yan slept at all last night, dealing with babe, so letting him get at least an hour now. Very not excited about the welcome baby party at my mom’s later today.

He is going to be a big boy. Poor tiny Emma is alway going to be the short one in the group.
She’s going to end up getting his hand-me-downs some day, hahaha.  Just terrible.  <3  Give Emma a hundred birthday kisses for me!  I’m glad I got to watch her grow over this past year - it helps gently dash my hopes that Armand will stay tiny forever and reminds me that children only become more wonderful as they grow.  <3 <3 <3
