sniffly morning

Baby woke up this morning (and many times through the night!) with a case of the sniffles. I don't know where it's all coming from...he's turned into some sort of snot factory.

We're planning a party for all his friends to say goodbye on Saturday...we've rented a bouncy castle and a popcorn popper like the kind at movie theatres...I'll paint faces and have a place set up for photo taking. I also bought this thing of balls. I was going to save it for the party but it seemed like just the thing to cheer him up this morning. (I'll just need to wipe them all with clorox wipes before the party! He just sneezed directly into the cardboard box I put the balls in)

Another thing that cheers up the baby these days is watching this video. I don't think it's the best idea to introduce an impressionable little one about biting...

Uh...he just tipped the whole big box of balls over....balls, balls, everywhere!

Sorry to hear baby has a cold right before the big party. Poor guy! That video is a favorite at our house. We can all imitate both Charlie and his adorable brother!! xoxo

That sounds like a wonderful party. I hope he gets to feeling better! I love a product called Baby Rub by Little Remedies, Little Colds. It's like VIck's Vapor Rub for babies. They breathe in that great eucalyptus and peppermint and lavender and it helps them sleep a little better and breath a little better. I even used it once!
Have a wonderful party Saturday! Give him a big hug from all of us in blogland who love him too!

Just a tip, You can put the balls on the top shelf of the dishwasher to clean them - that will save you time :)

LOL! That video had us calling our son Charlie everytime he hurt his sister - he didn't like it one bit so quickly stopped his horrid behaviour! He still does a brilliant Charlie impersonation though!
Hope Baby has a lovely party, I love those old popcorn machines!

Poor sniffly baby boy! I use baby Vick's and a warm steam humidifier to help shoo those sniffles away. The Charlie clip is absolutely adorable and VERY funny! Feel better baby boy!
