I seem to have caught my daughter’s cold, judging by the swollen throat and head so stuffed up that it keeps flopping over on my neck like a beach ball balanced on a fingertip.

Went to bed last night at around 10:30. Woke up at midnight… 1:15… 1:50… 2:30… 3:20… 3:55… etc. Finally gave up at around 6. Trying to get myself hydrated, but it’s slow going when swallowing hurts so much.

Any time now, Sophie will wake up and I’ll have my first shift with her for the day. She’s still got this cold, and, on top of that, has two new teeth coming in, so she’s generally pretty miserable. The teeth coming in are her upper left center and lateral incisors.

Between feeling lousy, not getting any sleep to speak of, and the baby, today will be a long, long day.
