Emme is suffering from her first American bug. She woke in the middle of the night Saturday coughing, runny nose, flying snot and continued coughing followed. She hasn't had any fever and I cannot believe that her mood has not been altered other than a little lethargy. She has been drinking plenty of fluids, a tepid bath to keep her comfy and lots of hugs and kisses. Today I had an important meeting at work so grandma and I tag teamed her. I went to work this morning and came home after lunch to relieve her so she could tend to something else. In true Emme form, after breakfast she put on her backpack and didn't understand she had to stay home from "school" today. She's been laying in bed watching "toonies" and just kicking back. Here's hoping I don't catch what ails her as we having a weekend adventure planned with her favorite man and mine. Despite her sniffles we are having a "party" tonight to celebrate her turning 2 1/2. After all who wants to wait six whole months for a celebration. A few pics from today.
