We just found out that for the first time you are suffering from a minor infection. You have had a cold for about 3 weeks now but this weekend it seemed to turn for the worse as the cough turned wet, the nose mucus became yellow and you began to grasp your ear more and more. You have always done the ear grabbing thing as it appears to help you relax but the frequency at which you are doing it became apparent that maybe something is wrong. As it turns out, you have a minor ear, throat and sinus infection that requires treatment. Naturally you absolutely hate the stuff so trying to get you to take your medication is a battle within itself. Why are you such a fussy little thing? Why do you not eat your food? Why can you not take a bottle? Why can you not sleep on your own? Why is it that you are good as gold when with mommy and daddy but if Grandma or grandpa try to babysit you, you become so difficult and just scream and cry the entire time?
Mommy is going back to work in about 2 months and there is just so much more that you have to learn. We are worried about you monkey. You seem to suffer from separation anxiety and we are just not sure that you will get over it by the time mommy goes back to work.
