The past couple of days have seen Miles develop his first real cold. Characterized by perpetual runny nose and increased fussiness (symptoms that, come to think of it, don’t differ all too much from his father’s), the cold was in full swing yesterday and today. Fortunately, he’s still been sleeping relatively well. Unfortunately (for Miles, anyway), we’ve had to increase usage of his Snot Sucking Bulb Thing™ by about 200%, or about once every 30 minutes.
And yet, even in the throes of illness, Miles finds a way to be adorable. Blowing a “nose bubble” with built-up mucus may sound vile, but boy, will it melt your heart.
