not to be left out of the cool crowd, samantha decided she just had to make like her two older sisters and get herself some pretty pink baby measles. unlike liney, who was the happiest little spotted baby ever, samantha was a lot more like dava, very morose and quiet, very still, restful and quietly grumpy. only content to be constantly held. but unlike her squirmy-wormy self, she was so nice and calm, and would just lay her head on our shoulders. she wouldn't be caught dead doing something so inactive like that now. shucks!
it all started with a fever, that quite literally warmed mommy's cold cheekies
and then came the spots
and the grumpiness
