The baby was whingy earlier than we expected last night, bringing her dinner and then her bedtime forward a bit - the husband noticed she was rubbing her ear a bit. She was asleep before 7pm, but around 9pm she was unsettled enough that she took a lot of settling (and some panadol) to get to sleep. We thought she sounded a bit sniffly, so we had the humidifier running in her room, which might also have made it a bit warm.
We woke up just before 9am this morning, and when I went in to check on her she was sitting up in bed - so almost 14 hours sleep for her!
We headed out to the markets and rugged her up super warm - she had a 45 minute nap in the car on the way home, and then another 90 minute nap this afternoon. Again, she got whingy early (it was the first time in quite a while that she has 'refused' to be left on the floor), so another early night (with panadol again).
However, for the first time in many, many, many months, the husband had to nurse her to sleep.
So far it's not been too bad - her mood is generally fine - but she is dripping a lot of (clear!) snot. And she is coughing a bit. And she is scrunching up her face and rubbing her hands all over her ears and eyes (not so awesome while she is eating/before I can get a tissue in there).
I'm hoping it doesn't get to the point where she is really sick, but this is the 'sickest' she's been yet. Not too shabby for almost one year old, but still, not awesome.
