To Sleep Lying Down

Who would have thought that the ability to sleep in a prone position was such a luxury, but after two nights sitting up on the sofa holding the baby so that she could breathe, last night felt quite lovely as we lay down and snuggled up at bedtime. She still had one choking, coughing spell at 4 in the morning, but the worst seems to be behind us.

There is nothing like having a sick baby to remind one that things like birth marks aren't really such a huge deal. I may worry about her looks and all, but that's so minor when she's fighting for a breath and feverish.
