Vivian had been fighting a cold for over two weeks when she finally recovered and was doing really well. She started sleeping through the night and it was so wonderful to be able to put them both to bed at 7pm and have a few hours to ourselves to watch TV and have a nice quiet dinner just the two of us.
Unfortunately it didn't last long. Owen caught something at school right when Vivi started feeling better and he had a runny nose for a week. She must have caught that again, or else it was just the tail end of her original cold catching up with her, but she spiked a fever on Monday and we had to take her to the pediatrician who told me right away it was an ear infection. 10 days of antibiotics and she should be good as new.
(this is her fussy face. in case you couldn't tell.)
Baby girl was so fussy all day for me while I tried to work from home. Didn't get much work done. Instead I spent most of the day snuggled up with Vivi trying to give her lots of extra love and kisses to hopefully make her feel better.
