Snuggling, Whining and Fevers

That about sums up the events that have taken place in our home over the past 24 hours. Last night when Ryan got home from his Nanny's house, he ate dinner fairly well (Spaghetti may have been spread across his face and all over the high chair but he did manage to get some in his mouth!) and took a nice, long bath. Once out of the bath Ryan didn't want out of my arms. We managed to get a diaper on him and wrapped him in a blanket. I decided to let the dirty kitchen remain dirty and took the opportunity to snuggle with my growing boy. I held him and rocked him for about 45 minutes and he sat as still as could be. While rocking I asked him, "Ryan, are you sick?" And he replied, "Ya" (even though I'm not sure he knows the difference between "Ya" and "No"). When he went to bed he was whiny and restless all night. This morning he was running 101+ fever and again wanted to be held and snuggled. I wrapped him in a blanket and rocked him this morning for another 40 minutes before we ran to town to the Dr. Apparently he is fighting some sort of infection but I'm not sure what kind. He does not have ear infections and the test for Influenza A & B both came back negative. I did come to work this afternoon and apparently he is still feverish and falling in and out of sleep on the couch at Nanny's house this afternoon. Please say a quick prayer that my little munchkin is up and running around in no time! As much as I love the cuddle time, I would much rather him be feeling like his normal self!

On a side note, I'm wondering: Do you all have a favorite drink from Sonic!? I have recently discovered the Vanilla Diet Coke and I'm in LOVE! Not a huge fan of diet sodas but the comination of crushed ice and vanilla make this soda fabulous! In fact, Happy Hour starts in T-30 minutes and I'm so there!! Ha!

Hope Ryan is feeling better soon! Anna has finally gotten over a fever (just over three days, getting up to 103.8 at one point). She did end up with an ear infection too. So sad to see them feeling yucky! Keep us posted!
