Amanda has had sniffles before but nothing that has interrupted her sleep or interfered with nursing. This cold has really been tough. She's had a terrible runny nose and now she's coughing. Even though the cough sounds bad, I think she's starting to feel better.
One morning, Amanda woke up saying, "F,F,F." Mike said, "Wouldn't it be great to wake up one morning with a new consonant!" Mike walked around saying all the words that came to mind that started with "F". Food, furry, fan, funny. She also uses her "f" to blow on things. Sometimes Mike blows on her face to make her laugh and she copied the neighbor girl who was blowing on a windmill toy. We thought she might be able to blow bubbles, too, but she still thought she should open her mouth to taste the bubble wand.
One more "F" item Amanda found in the yard! "Flags!"
