I've Forgotten

SBW is sick. He's been running a fever since yesterday. I took him to the doctor this morning. She said it is a viral infection that needs to run through his system. Ugh.

I've forgotten what it is like to hold a sick baby. He is burning up with fever and just wants to be held. Even when he had the pneumonia in the fall, he wasn't lethargic.

I don't like it. The kids DON'T LIKE IT. JC doesn't like it. The kids are worried. Where is our happy SBW?

When the first three were his age, they were sick pretty often with ear infections. I have vivid memories of sitting in the chair and rocking and rocking and rocking those sweet babies. #4 was a pretty healthy baby. So far, I feel like SBW has been pretty darn healthy.

Keep fingers crossed. I hope my leaf eating baby is back to normal tomorrow. Without the leaves, of course.
