Dear Audrey,

You have a cold. Your first cold. I feel like this is a milestone in your life. The first of many colds to come. You are a bit fussy, but considering, you are handling it so well. You coughed a bit at first but now you just have the sniffles. It's pretty cute, actually. So it can't be that bad. I might have freaked out just a tad when you started coughing. I might have overreacted a bit. But I'm okay now. We're okay now. Okay, so I'm a little nuts. It runs in the family. You have a lot to look forward to.

Anyway, I love you. Feel better soon. And stop freaking out when I wipe your nose. It seriously isn't that bad.



  1. Talia,

    do you know what is going to be cool, when audrey is older you can show her all these letters :)
    i wish my parents blogged about me haha


  2. Oh wow, she is the cutest :)! I don't have kids yet, but I think I would be like you... Those letters are the best!! Keep doing your great mommy work....

  3. So scary when our babies get sick for the first time (and second, and third...) It is perfectly normal for you to freak out! Audrey is growing so fast, and sooo cute. She is lucky to have such loving parents :) x

  4. Aww, I definitely feel your pain on how scary it is when your baby gets sick for the first time! I felt it with every new sort of sickness: the first time my son got a cold, the first time he threw up (like, real throw-up, not just spit-up), the first time he... well, I won't go into too much detail. But I promise, she'll be 18 one day and it will be cute that it was that scary once!

  5. I love this photo. Even with a little cold she manages to be cute! Hope she gets to feeling better soon! <3

  6. Awww, this is so sweet! My LO hasn't gotten his first cold yet. I hope she feels better soon!

  7. Poor thing! Hope she feels better soon!

  8. AWWW, little Audrey E. I love that you post these letters for us all to enjoy. She will treasure them too one day.
    Look at the concerned look on her little face as if to be telling you she isn't herself today.

    love you little Audrey!!

  9. Talia,
