When Sasha woke up from his nap yesterday, he was on fire. Turned out he had a fever of 102F.
A trip to the doctors shows another sinus infection. He seems to get one near the end of every teething bout, poor kid. It must be from the extra gunk the builds up from the irritation.
And further proof of the timing? Tooth #6 broke thru that afternoon too.
This is just going to make teething that much worse of a process.
The antibiotics have done an excellent job and he's nearly back to his old self this morning and the fever broke last night.
He's back to playing with his buddy today. Fascination du jour was the DVD player. The Hound knows how to work it and was showing Sasha how to jam things in the tray.And Sasha was happily walking around with his pen. And everyone was able to have some nice naps finally, because there was no screaming today, like there was last night.
Which meant Kerry could get some peace from policing those two.
A few other noteworthy things happened. Sasha said "No" yesterday, several times, when I told him we were going to do something that typically makes him scream. Getting in the highchair, the carseat, putting on pants...all were met with a clear and LOUD "No". "No"-ing has continued today.
True toddlerhood is apparently not far off. (sigh)
A happier development has been that Sasha kisses me now. He's kissed everyone else in the world for months, but never me. It always made me kind of sad that he only ever seemed to bite me. No kisses. But many were given since yesterday.
I'm a happy Mommy now.
