autumn & allergies

>> Wednesday, September 2, 2009

i know that autumn is coming.
as i write this, the mini is curled up in my lap, her breath whistling with each inhalation. she apparently has inherited her father's extreme seasonal allergies. seriously, this little gal is so much of her father, it's unreal. they sneeze simultaneously, their sniffles are identical, and they both have runny noses and teary eyes. just too cute.
however, the huge difference is that the husband can take a plethora of pharmacological remedies. ibuprofen, pseudoephedrine, aspirin, otrivin. the mini has none of those at her 19 week old fingertips - except maybe the 1/4 tsp of benadryl the pharmacist said she can have, and i'm reluctant to do that. so thanks to my sisters and my etsy gals, i've gotten some excellent advice, including rubbing vapo rub on her feet before bed, raising the head of her crib mattress, and keeping her upright as she breastfeeds. (that one doesn't really matter because she throws up from the congestion anyways.) thank goodness that she has the sweetest disposition (which i'm sure is the only part she gets from me! LOL) and just smiles through it all. except when i try to pick the boogers out. she hates that.
anyway, it's a reminder of how close autumn is now. and my thoughts turn to lovely warm scarves! i'm not much of a coat person, so give me a thick, chunky scarf any day. i have an obsession with crocheting long, luxurious scarves like the one above. i'm toying with the idea of selling them... if i can part with them!!!!
