illness, griping 

the good news: baby is on antibiotics, feeling better, and back in daycare as of yesterday (after being home for the summer) with a smooth reentry by all accounts. this means I can take the cat to the vet and start catching up on sleep to (I hope) finally beat the cough.

he also, in toddlerish fashion, started exclaiming "mine!" when he wants something. but more recently he's been mixing it up with what sounds like "ours!"
