Portrait of a Sick Baby

Sick baby

The Hatchling is having her first cold. It manifested itself in a runny nose yesterday, and escalated to a 102 degree fever this afternoon. Other than being a little more cuddly and needing more naps than usual, she's been her usual sunny self; but when her fever got high and her nose was so stuffy she really was sweetly pathetic. It must be awful to feel yucky and not understand why it's happening or that it will be over soon. We dosed her with Tylenol and rocked her extra long before putting her to bed. Here's hoping it's just a 48 hour bug.
