Charlotte's First Illness :(

I'm sure the doctor could tell I am a first-time mom when I came running in Monday morning with a happy but spotted infant. Charlotte broke out in little red spots all over her body- even her palms and the soles of her feet- but the doctor said it looked like a basic viral infection. The spots went away after a few days, but then the coughing and sneezing started. I was a wreck Wednesday night when Charlotte had coughing/sneezing fits all through the night. I woke her up a few times to suction out her nose; she did not like that. I eventually put her in her swing to finish out the night so that her head would be elevated. Charlotte is still her sweet self, just sleeping more and eating a bit less. Nonetheless, I will be glad to see this go!
