Awww, the first time they are sick is the worst. And all the other times, no matter how old they are, you will still worry. Little one's are so very resiliant. I wish I had the immunity they do. Hope she's better soon, GB!!

I'm sorry to hear Rachel is sick. At least she's building up a strong immune system and I'm sure your glad she hasn't been sick up until now. Rent her a movie and spend the day snuggling on the couch. Read lots of books to her and fix her some warm water with lemon & honey or sugar (Aidan loved this when he was sick. Not sure if you can give her honey yet, but it'll make her throat fell soothed.)

Thank you everyone! We really appreciate all your kind words.

Barbara, that does not sounds crazy at all. I completely agree that being exposed to germs and illness helps build a strong immunity. I was actually a little concerned that she had gone this long without catching anything.

OK here is the update. We had some errands to run and I was hoping a nice car ride would make her fall asleep. As soon as I got her snow suit on she was happy. We went to a few stores and she was in such a good mood. She was singing and talking and flirting with anyone who would even glance in her general direction.

Now that we are home she is a little cranky again, but not too bad. She is a trooper for sure.

Kids are so resilient to minor colds. The outing always helps them get their mind off of feeling sick too. I hope she starts feeling better very soon.

Can't start giving her chicken soup but you doing the next best thing, Being there. How many little ones are with people they barely know. Babies know when the love is being given. It heals all ills. Even better than the soup. Keep her close and assure her with hugs and kisses that you all will get past this. Love is like a soft blanket. Covers all!
