Croup: 1, McCalls: 0

Hudson is sick just in time for the holidays. :(  He had a cold all of last week and this weekend the cough started sounding scary and brought back bad memories of the horrible RSV hospital stay.  We took him to the doctor and he was diagnosed with croup.  We are having a rough week with not much sleep. We are praying that he will be better for Christmas and his big first birthday!  Even though he was pretty miserable during our peds visit today he did mock the doctor when she was giving me an example of what the croup cough sounded like.  She said, "Does is cough sound like this...?" and the Hudson looked right at her, cocked his head and copied her "Ah, Ah, Ah."  We both cracked up.  He is too funny.

Our nightly outing before bed or whenever he starts coughing.  They recommend the cool night air to help with his breathing.  He absolutely loves that he gets to go outside in the middle of the night!

Although he has been a little whiny and clingy he has still been playing full-force and getting closer to his first steps everyday.

 The bath always makes him happy when he isn't feeling well.

 It only took about 5 minutes for him to figure out how to turn it on.  Now he just wants to stand in the bath.

 He gets confused when his excessive splashing actually gets in his eyes.  He usually looks at me like I did something to make it happen.

 Loves chewing on the washcloths.
