this is what happens when we aren't feeling good

these pictures are old (we've since redecorated and moved things around), but my house looks very similar -- i just don't feel like getting the camera out and actually uploading the pictures!! this is what happens to my house when aidan and i both aren't feeling very good and don't have the energy to do anything!

on sunday during the superbowl aidan was acting very cranky. at first we just thought the party was too much for him. later he came up to me and i picked him up and he felt warm. when we came home we took him temperature and it was 101. we gave him tylenol and put him to bed. when he woke up at 10 o'clock we took his temperature again. it was now 104.3!!! so we threw him in the bath to try to get his temperature down. after 20 minutes it had come down to 103.2. we called the after hours phone number for the pediatrician and left a message. she called me about 30 seconds later. we talked for a bit and she told me to give him some motrin as well. she wasn't concerned because aidan was talking and smiling and playing. she said it would have been a different story had he been lathargic. we finally got him back to sleep and he only slept anywhere in between 1-2 hrs all night long. needless to say it was a long night. monday night wasn't much different and last night he didn't sleep all that well either. needless to say i'm exhausted! hopefully he starts feeling better so i can start being productive!!
