update on the 'ugly'

Well, despite Grayson's fever being completely gone by the time his appointment time came, I went with my intuition and took him in anyway.  And boy am I glad I did!  Turns out he has a double ear infection!!!!  I know, poor guy...  The ped said she thought all of the nasal drainage was from teething and that it had backed up into his Eustachian tubes and caused an infection.  The drainage from his nose is clear though.  And, his temperature was still normal tonite.  Hopefully the amoxicillin and the Zyrtec (another first--antibiotics) she prescribed will get him back in shape.  I HATE that he's sick, but am so glad we caught it early before he was having symptoms of the ear infection.  He was as happy as can be this evening, so I think he feels okay.  He was playing with Dad tonite before dinner and was just laughing and sitting in Dad's lap all by himself!  I think that little boy has both of us wrapped around his little finger!!

On a completely separate note, Brandon and I just realized that we're going to have to actually start buying him some clothes now!  Ya, it's been 6 months and we haven't really had to buy him anything, but now he's outgrowing all of his sleep clothes in length and needs some 9-12 month stuff!  He pretty much only has 2 pajamas that still fit and I have to wash them every other day!  We already knew he needed summer clothes, but now I need to shop for spring clothes too.  (Not that I'm sad about getting to shop for him!!! And I know that you're also probably excited Gigi and Aunt Lala!!

Anyway, that's the end of the drama at the Guptons today.  Hopefully Gray will bounce back soon and will sleep well tonite...  I'm not holding my breath though because he went down at 7:30 and has already been up once already! 

Hope you all have a good night anyway!!
