Ear Infection

Nathaniel was diagnosed with his first ear infection last Wednesday. I know we are very lucky that at 13 months old, we are just now experiencing this too common childhood sickness. I am even more thankful because he is not handling the antibiotics' "side effect" too well.

Isn't he still adorable? Snot and all?

See his prissy, side-seat? It's because his bottom is so painful and raw. For the past few days, Nathaniel is diaper-less for most of the day. We're going through pants and shorts like crazy but I guess we're saving on diapers.

These were also taken before Nathaniel developed a fever because now he doesn't have an appetite. Despite the alternating acetaminophen and ibuprofen regimen, his temperature is still lingering in the high 99s to low 100s.

And even though I know he feels miserable, he is still such a loving baby. Yes, he has his moments of fussiness but most of the time, he just wants to play.

Oh, we're done with pictures?

Just one more then.



  1. Oh Diana, don't worry! As long as Nathaniel is still alert and his usual self, then it's still OK. Do keep in mind that fever is a good thing! It's a sign that his body is working to fight off infections!

    Take care and you too rest well!
