    Happy New Year! Can’t believe it’s 2013… I know, very clichรฉ, but the last year has flown by. Anyway, this week was pretty uneventful โ€“ except Haley got her first real cold. ๐Ÿ™ I could tell on Tuesday she wasn’t feeling like her self, then on Wednesday she got a cough and by Thursday she was sick. Runny nose, cough, temp at night… she threw up a couple of nights just from all the mucous in her throat. However, through it all she was her same old happy self โ€“ maybe a little more clingy but that’s it. Only at night could we really tell something was going on. She wouldn’t go to sleep (I think because it was hard for her to breath) and then she would wake up multiple times during the night and need me to hold her and rock her for about an hour. It was definitely tiring, but I didn’t mind taking care of her. I just felt bad that she felt so yucky. We even took her for a car ride one night to try and help her sleep โ€“ Big mistake! She ended up throwing up in the car and then had to sit in her puke while we drove home! I felt so bad about that. Oh well. I did put one side of her mattress up and she was able to breath a little better and she really loved the chest rub that we put on her. Oh- and I would massage her face and she really liked that too. So, now we have some tricks for next time โ€“ some things to do and some thing definitely not to do! She was a trooper and did really well though it all. So, that’s really it for this last week! We started a new year and Haley got her first real cold. And we all made it through both ๐Ÿ™‚
