Newbie Winter, P.S.

BabyBoy has a cold now – a slight one, not that big of a deal, but a cold nevertheless. Usually by this time of year, BB would have had a cold for months. He would have had a constant runny nose, sneezing, and the kind of symptoms that made us miss countless toddler classes in our previous life. On St. Thomas, he had a cold 6 weeks ago – a milder form of the one that every other island child seemed to have had, and it was hardly anything to write home about. Now he has a cold again, two days after our chilly windy swim. Coincidence? I have no idea. Maybe children acclimate faster than adults. At any rate, the babies will stay on dry land for a couple of days. Neighbors, feel free to say ‘I told you so.’ You have until BB’s nose stops running…

BB with beach toys for now. He is quite happy...
