This morning Miss Avery woke up pretty congested but since we live in "death valley" when it comes to allergens, I wrote it off as just more pollen in the air. Avery was acting like herself until....
I put her down for her morning nap. Now, during the week, homegirl doesn't nap at day care. I think she's afraid she'll miss something. At least she handles it well and is normally happy. But on the weekends, she will nap for about an hour in the morning and again in the afternoon. Well this morning she slept for only 20 minutes. When she got up I was holding her while I was finishing watching the season finale of Grey's (OMG! it was a good one! I hope they don't die!) Avery just laid on me and cuddled. She fell asleep on my chest and this is SOOOOO unlike her. She hadn't felt warm but I figured I'd go check again.
Her temp was 99.6 according to the Exergen. I love that thermometer for a quick check. After a little while Avery felt warmer and after a recheck, her temperature was 101.2! I called the pediatrician and they said she probably had a fever virus and to go ahead and treat it today and then bring her in tomorrow if she still has a fever.
Poor baby. She has been so miserable but still happy. I walked into the living room where she was sitting on the floor playing with her leap frog table with Robert and she looked at me and cracked up. I have no idea what was so funny but apparently I was the funniest thing she had seen today.
