Sniffles and Snuggles

There's something a little magical when you come home from a trip.... Even a super quick trip. Especially when you haven't been away from your kiddos for months and months. True smiles and the 'so glad you came backs' just make a mama melt.

Then I find out that we are battling a cold with Avin, who lets just say doesn't have the best hygiene etiquette when it comes to a runny nose and cough. 

Today I was in full on nose blowing, hand washing mode with her while stealing a few snuggles and wrestling to keep her at arms length from her baby brother. (News about his last lung appointment soon!) I have borderline fear about him getting a real cold with respiratory yuck that would likely admit him to the hospital almost immediately. 

I'm so thankful we have are able to flip a switch and try to alleviate these cold symptoms. 
Now here's my shameless plug because I love it and truly believe this little device would bring value to your home and lives too. Our Scentsy oil diffusers are pretty much amazing and in my and many others opinions, the best diffusers on the market. With a LIFETIME warranty (yes you read that correctly), 16 LED lighting options and 3 diffusing settings, this beauty will be beautiful, and useful, addition to your home. I'm thrilled to tell you that it is 10% off which makes it $117 for this month only. I'm telling you, from experience, you won't regret the decision to invest in one (or two) of this little miracle workers. 

Now, I'm off to steam up the babies in the bathroom with some Eucalyptus and Lavender oils.

Lungs! Are they big enough yet?

Anchor Joel has a big appointment tomorrow. His daddy is taking him to see the pediatric pulmonary specialist. He gets to show his doctor what a strong boy he is and how much his lungs have grown. For the past month, Anchor has been using just a tiny bit of oxygen during his naps and through the night. For the past few days, only at night. 

We are excited to hear what his doctor has to say about his progress. 

If you remember, please say a prayer for our little guy's lungs to be restored and healthy enough to say bye bye to the cords and machines.
