My poor baby...

I was up about every 2 hours or less with Liam last night. He was running a fever and just miserable. When he woke at 5am, I woke Ian so he could help me give Liam some medicine and take his tempurature. His tempurature was 100.7. Not too bad.

He wanted Daddy to cuddle him and seemed reluctant to go back to me. I put him down in his crib and he seemed restful. At 5:45 he awoke again and I put him in bed with me to see if he'd fall back asleep. He did, but I could tell he was having those weird dreams when you are sick. He was kicking now and then, and seemed unsettled. I went to kiss him on the forehead and it was obvious his fever was gone. I was glad.

I put him back in his crib and he slept until 8am.

So I thought he was fine because he was pretty good today, not really whiney like he was yesterday. I was wrong!

He slept from noon to 2pm. When he woke from his nap, he got whiney again and around 4 or 5 we noticed another fever. That was followed by a sick diaper which told us it wasn't just teething.

I put him in the shower with Ian. That seemed to put him in a good mood playing in the water with Daddy! Shortly after the shower he got whiney again. He tried to be happy, but he just felt so cruddy. I canceled my evening plans. I didn't want to leave my sick babe.

He went to bed at 7:30 and has been up every hour since then. Poor baby...

Poor Liam! Livie has had a tough couple of nites too because of a stuffy nose. Luckily she hasn't been "sick" with a fever or anything in her 8 months of life. :) Hope he feels better.

Oh....I hope your little sweetie feels better soon. I know how heartbreaking it is when you have a sick child.

I am soooooo sorry! I just got over my young one being sick. I went thru a night last week similar to yours posted here. It is hard on baby and the parents!!! Remember -- all will be better soon enough. Hang in there!!!

Oh noo! Teething perhaps?

Having a sick baby is so awful. Takes its toll on everyone.

Keep strong!

I just hate when my kids are sick. They seem so helpless and sad. It breaks my heart. Hopefully he feels better soon.

So sorry to hear that Liam is not feeling well, hope he is up and about soon... It is hard this time of year when the weather changes and the pollen is out again,kids are going back to school and bringing new germs home etc... Hopefully he feels better soon. Give him a kiss and big hug from us.

I hate it when little ones are sick. They can't tell you what's wrong either. (though I actually do like the illnesses where they just sleep the entire day away, that just usually isn't the case...)
