Smiles and Cooing

The first couple days this week were hard.  For unknown reasons, baby Kate spent several days crying all day long for 3-4 days.  The only thing that would calm her was being walked around the house, so walk we did.  We wore tracks all through the house pacing back and forth.  It was bad timing in that I hurt my back over the weekend so I wanted to do as little walking as possible.  The doctor ruled out ear infection, sore throat, cough, runny nose, and fever and ended up diagnosing an acute case of 6-week-old-itis, the only cure for which is to wait it out.  Luckily, it passed relatively quickly and we are both getting better now.  On this side of her mystery ailment, Kate has been winning our hearts with her huge smiles and sweet little coos.  I could swear I even heard her trying to laugh yesterday…
