Alice's First Cold

2005-03-09 One-minute read

Alice officially has her first cold. She woke up sniffling and coughing, in part due to our furnace failing over night. Her room was 13C this morning! The furnace has now been repaired so she’ll be warmer tonight. Much to our surprise, Corinna found Alice cheerful most of the day. A typical day includes three or four naps. Today Alice had five! Being well rested makes her a cheerful little darling. I just put Alice in her crib for the night. I wasn’t convinced she’d fall asleep, but so far so good. It’s hard for her to breathe through her nose, so I’m not sure she’ll be able to sleep with her soother. And only time will tell whether she’ll sleep through the night. You know how it is when you catch a cold – I can’t imagine what it’s like for her. She doesn’t know why she’s coughing and sneezing. Poor little girl!
