Woo. Sick baby.

So, we have our first real bout of sick-baby-and-sleepless-nights. For about 36 hours now, baby C has been alternating between cranky, normal-happy, and screaming in pain. After very little napping and poor sleep, we also threw in tired-crying-because-it-hurts-and-I-cant-sleep starting at about midnight last night. She finally fell asleep after projectile vomiting on daddy around 2am.

Got to the dr. around noon. Turns out ear infections can have a variety of symptoms, and babies won't always touch their ears if it hurts there. Started her on amoxicillin and baby Motrin. After the Motrin kicked in, she got a 2.5 hour nap.

Let's hope this clears up quickly, and that mom & dad can get some sleep tonight...
