Mia has ceased saying Melmo for Elmo. He is now to be called Elbow

The whole family is now sharing a yucky cold. We all have watery eyes, had stuffy noses, but now they're runny, coughs from the post-nasal drip, and are just a little run down..but the worst I think is how Mia has to deal with a stuffy/runny nose. Daryl and I can blow our noses, Mia just gets her nose wiped and suctioned. Not fun, but she's a trooper while she sits and lets us do it. Suzy turned us on to this awesome stuff that I've put in our baths. It has menthol and eucalyptus, so it just makes everything drain. I think Mia and I have taken at least 8 baths together in the last 2 days. The hardest part is not being able to be social. We've gone to HEB and Walmart to walk around, get more medicine, and buy more toys. We are beyond bored staying at home. So Mia now has a set of MegaBloks and more fake food to play with. She really dug the MegaBloks at the library and at her friend Blake's place. We haven't had fever in 48 hours, but I just want to be on the safe side and stay away from friends and classes this week. Mia's been watching a lot of Little Bear, Thomas, the Teletubbies and Eebee. She just doesn't have much energy for anything else. Oh, we have gone out back and played in the pool a couple of times. Being outside seems to clear our noses up a little, but fatigues us a bit.

No pics of the snot machines, but here are some I took of Mia while we were at the local duck park last week.
