"Well" child checkup

Yesterday Patrick had his "well" child check.  Why the ""?  Well, because he was sick.  lol  He weighs 20lbs5oz and is 29 1/2 inches tall, and has hit all his developmental milestones and looks great in all those areas.  But he's got an upper respiratory infection.  I also had her check Erin's ears since she was complaining on Saturday that her ears hurt (but not on Sunday...). She's got a double ear infection.  So they're both on antibiotics right now.

Patrick seems to be doing better this morning, but even though he hasn't had a fever all this time he's had his cold, last night after his first dose he woke up at 2am with a fever of 101.6.  Luckily the ibuprofin knocked it out.  He also slept in until 9:30am which is extremely unusual for him.  I know that antibiotics always make me feel worse before I feel better though, so hopefully that's all that this is.

It's so sad when babies are sick!
