Saturday morning Eli did not seem like his usual rambunctious self. So I checked and sure enough, he was burning hot. We gave him some ibuprofen and he spent a large portion of the day sleeping and cuddling on Mommy. I seemed to be the comfort item of the moment.
I also spent a large portion of Saturday night being Eli's preferred cuddly comforter. I didn't really appreciate being up most of the night, but I did enjoy the cuddles. My boys are not terribly cuddly babies. Usually they prefer to cuddle with their teddies.
Sometimes Eli even tries to jailbreak his teddy from the crib.
Too bad Tan Teddy is too tubby to fit through the bars!
Eli's fever continued through Monday. I called the pediatrician, but since he had no other symptoms and the fever was "low-grade" there was nothing to do but wait. Happily today the fever is gone.
(By the way, thank you for all your kind words on my post about my terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day on Thursday. I am happy to report that Friday and many days since have been MUCH better.)
