I think (hope) that Delaney is getting a few more teeth. This kid is so slow when it comes to getting all of her teeth, but when she does get them, it's business--usually 4 or more at a time! She is still missing a total of 8 teeth from her "baby teeth" set, one more set of molars and then her canines. She went to bed great last night, then woke up at 11:30pm, Chuck and I could hear her talking over the monitor. At first, I thought maybe she was just 1/2 awake and looking for her binkie or something. Then we heard very distinctive "up, down" so I decided to check on her. She was burning up! Even her legs were hot to the touch, so I took her into the rocker and took her temperature. We just do under-the-arm temp, but the mere sight of that thermometer brings her to tears. We did get a reading though, 100.8 I think, and under the arm is usually a degree lower than actual. I gave her some tylenol and we rocked for a bit to see if the fever would drop. She still felt a little warm, but was acting ok so we put her to bed. She woke again at 2am, not as warm but fussy, and I ended up bringing her into the spare bed with me where she slept and I dozed for about 20 minutes, then put her back in her room.
Got up and did breakfast this morning (she only ate 1/2 of her banana, a food she never turns down) then we headed to Target for our grocery run. Once we got home, I gave her an early lunch since breakfast was small and took her temp amidst tears again. Took it first thing this morning and it was 98.3, this time it was 100 again. More tylenol, and I asked her if she wanted to take a nap. She said yes but cried when I put her in her room so I just let her lay on the couch with a pillow, a lightweight blanket and her binkies. Put her down for a nap about 30 min later and she is still sleeping. I really hope this is just teeth related, we haven't been sick recently, and she hasn't really been around anyone else.
And to leave you with this for the weekend....I am a Calvin & Hobbes fan, and recently rediscovered a plethora of saved comics on the computer ---
