Fevers are Funny

We had a rough few nights with the wee man there. There was one night last week that he was up every 2 hours, which he hadn't done since he was just a month or so old. He has been teething, you see, and teething apparently hurts. I'm not sure who was more miserable, him or me. We were up in Boston over the weekend and when we got back on Sunday night, Rowan felt quite warm to me. I checked his temp and it was 102.3F (that's 39.1C for you Brits). This is a picture of him that night. He obviously thinks fevers are quite funny.

A dose of Tylenol sorted him out and he slept soundly that night (as I woke up every hour or so to check on him).  He seems to be feeling much better now and we've had a few good nights of sleep.  He had one top front tooth through last time I checked and I suspect the second top one is almost through as well.

I think he's smiling because he's thinking about all the new foods he can eat now that he has teeth!!! Hope you're feeling better,little guy!!!
