The Baby's First Cold

I don't know if you realize this, but a baby goes through a lot of "firsts". First poop, first blowout, first crying fit that lasts all night...These are all big milestones for a baby. Another one is first cold, and our baby, the Baby, has been battling her first cold for the last week or seven. At least that's what it seems like to us.

Yes, for the past few days or so, gone is our happy-go-lucky, smiling at anything and everything that moves, sleeping through the night since she was three weeks old Baby, and in her place has been a sniffling, coughing, wheezing, ornery, waking up what seems like a billion times a night baby. Despite all that, she still has been smiling quite a bit. I don't understand that. I don't have even the slightest hint of a cold, and I haven't smiled in the past 7 years...

Thankfully, the Baby seems to have turned a corner, and is on the road to recovery. Now if she would just start sleeping through the night again, maybe the Wife could finally get some rest...
She's looking better already...
