The Double Ear Infection Blues

Why is this Baby crying????

Well, this overly fussy baby got taken to the doctor yesterday and found out that she has a really bad double ear infection. She has been extra fussy this week and then woke up Thursday morning at 4 am with a 103.4 temp. So, now she is on antibiotics and hopefully they will kick in soon...because her fever continues and so does her sadness. On the plus side, she is extra cuddly and will even lay her head on me, which just never happens with this busy almost 1 year old! To make matters worse, our doctor told me that not only is Jules getting all 4 teeth on top, but she also has 2 more coming in on bottom! Yikes!!!! Double ear infection and 6 teeth coming in...how much can one baby take? We especially need her to feel better in the morning because it is her very first Easter Egg Hunt in our neighborhood and we really want her to rack up on some good candy!
Here are some more pictures of our morning...

so sad

poor baby


now, she is just pissed off...







BUT...the good news is that her momma is a big believer in infant Tylenol and here is what she looked like after it kicked in...

sweet girl
I even got a smile out of her. You know she is feeling bad if she is laying down without trying to roll over and take off! Poor girl...



Her lovie helps her feel better too


Look at those teeth! She is about to have a whole mouth full!
In order for me to actually put Jules down long enough for me to get a shower, I had to pull out all the stops! Here is what our sweet Baby Jules chose to play with while I showered...

nice, huh?





Stay classy San Diego!

What I think is so funny is that you continued to take her photo while she was bawling. Hilarious. I actually laughed out loud. She is precious!!!!! Good luck with the ears and gums.

Brit-
I am laughing out loud! That last post was pitiful, funny and raunchy all rolled into one! hahahah! Those pics of Jules crying could break my heart because she looks so pitiful and sad. What's funny is the pic of her after her dose of drugs...she LOOKS like she's just been given a big dose of drugs! hahahah! She's such a doll baby! Hope she feels better tomorrow for the hunt.

Hi! I know this is an old post but I googled "double-ear infection" and your blog came up! After just getting back from a late night trip to the Dr. and finding out my precious, 11-month old Naomi has a double ear infection I was feeling pretty bad and kind of blaming myself for her misery. After reading your blog (and laughing out loud histerically), I feel much better. Thanks from a stranger in Georgia!
