On Friday when I woke Carter up he felt warm. I took his temperature and one ear said 100.2, the other said 102.1. Being a new mom of a baby, I had no clue what to do at this point. I tried to find Tylenol, but couldn’t (of course), so I dressed him in light clothes and brought him to daycare in hopes the fever would just come down naturally. Well I got a call around 12:00 saying that Carter had a temp of 104.0! Whoops! I knew I should have stayed home with him! So I brought him to the Urgent Care I used to work at, just because I wanted to make sure he didn’t have strep or an ear infection. Both were negative. They also checked for flu and that came back negative as well. So we are dealing with a virus, gotta let this pass with time. So here are a few pictures of how the weekend went.
As you can see there was a lot of cuddling, a lot of only diaper time, even a time with a cool wash cloth and cool bottle. Poor little poopster. I was alternating Tylenol and Ibuprofen all weekend, gave a cool bath, pretty much anything to keep him cool, but not cold. For the most part he was acting like himself, but then he would have his cranky times. He cried himself to sleep a lot in my lap. His fever was down to 98.9 a couple hours ago, so I am hoping it stays down finally and this crud can be behind us.
Today we had a busy morning of errands! We went to Target, Walmart, Pet Expo, Gas station and the pharmacy. Whew! We had to get Carter a new carseat, because he reached the height limit in his infant car seat. Here he is in his new carseat! This is one of those pictures I should have looked at before deciding it was good. lol.
