Is that a dinosaur on your nose?

We had a bit of a scare on Monday morning. Charlotte was congested on Sunday and very lethargic, so we took her to the doctor on Monday morning. The doctor listened to her chest and diagnosed her with bronchiolitis. She was pretty close to sending us to the ER to have Charlotte monitored. After about 2.5 hours in the doctor's office, the sent us home with a nebulizer and breathing treatments to give whenever we saw that her breathing was labored. After a long day of watching Charlotte's chest - we ended up only giving one treatment. She had an OK night on Monday night, up a little bit more than usual, but not too bad. Yesterday we took her back to the doctor to check her lungs, and the doctor said they sounded much, much better. She tends to do a lot of coughing while eating, the doctor said that might be due to reflux. So, I have been trying to feed her at an incline - which is a little tricky breastfeeding. Today we have had a good day so far - she has seemed more herself. She is still congested, but she is eating better. Last night we put her in her car seat to sleep, and that seemed to help keep her head clear.

Judd had a cute moment with Charlotte last night. Charlotte and I were sitting on the couch when Judd came home, she was just sitting on my knees looking at me. He came in the room and said hello to her, she immediately turned her head and looked right at his face. That was really the first time she had responded to his voice like that. She really loves her dad.
