baby coughs

Oh it's the worst sound.
Matilda's crib and our bedroom share a wall so we hear every cough.
There have been a lot of coughs in the past couple of weeks.
She can't seem to shake this nasty cold.

Last night there were no coughs until around 9:30.
{phil calls this the witching hour in our house - either I get the giggles or Matilda starts coughing}

When the coughs come Phil and I immediately lock eyes.
This time is crucial because you're officially assessing if the coughs are worthy of a swoop-in.

More coughs.

More coughs.
Should we go in?
Wait just a minute.

More coughs.
We lock eyes again, mission received - we're going in.

A sip of water, maybe some cough medicine (agave syrup), a nose suck perhaps?

And just like her mama it's straight back to bed. The girl can sleep.

Happy Tuesday!
