Sick Baby

Lincoln slept until 10am yesterday morning...very unlike him, he's normally awake by 8am. When I took him out of his crib, I thought he felt unusually warm. Sure enough, I took his temp and it read 101.4 :(

I'm chalking it up to teething...although most doctors will tell you that teething does not cause fevers. His top gums are SO swollen, & it looks like he's about to get his bottom left tooth. Oh, and I forgot to mention, he got his first tooth [bottom right] on August 6th. I have had no successful pictures of it yet though, but I promise...I'll get one!

He slept a lot yesterday, & was pretty miserable. His fever didn't go any higher so I decided to just keep an eye on him and not call the pediatrician.

When he woke up this morning, I took his temp again, & it was 99.4....score! I'm hoping he's on the road to recovery! I've been very lucky with Lincoln's health. He hasn't had anything other than the sniffles a few times. It makes me sad to see him not feeling well... :(


  1. Glad his fever has gone down!

  2. Glad he's on the way to recovery. Can't wait to see the new tooth!

  3. I hope it is just teething and those teeth come out soon so he can feel better!


Comments make me happy! I love to hear from my readers :)
