First, as a reminder to myself that Samuel does know how to smile and be cute, here are a few cute pics:
Now, here's the real story from this weekend:
Samuel felt hot on Thursday afternoon. He ran a fever through Friday. I took his temp on Friday at noon and it was 105. I knew that this was supposed to be some sort of sign to me to contact a dr. Well, we don't have a dr. yet! But my OB had just given me a recommendation on Wed. We called the dr. and she said she would see Samuel at 5:30 on Friday evening. We took him in and even with Tylenol in his system, he was still at 104.3. He ran 105 through the night, but by morning, it was gone. No idea what that was all about - his strep culture was negative and he didn't have any other symptoms. We're waiting to see if he gets a rash, which means it was/is roseola, but no rash so far. Okay, so not so bad, right? WRONG...keep reading!
Samuel was UN-BEARABLY irritable Wed, Thurs, Fri, Sat & Sun. I mean, I was on the verge of putting him up for adoption. Ed and I were stopping and praying at every turn for grace in dealing with him b/c we were totally frazzled. I thought it was something to do with the fever. Then, last night, Samuel seemed to have turned a corner. We were all playing on the couch and Ed started feeling his gums for the 6th tooth that we've been waiting to come in. All of a sudden, he realized that Samuel had a MOLAR break through on top!! We couldn't believe it! He has been so slow in getting his front teeth (he only has two bottom and 3 1/2 top so far). We definitely weren't thinking that he would get any molars anytime soon. WOW - we were shocked. But at least it seemed to explain Samuel's HORRIBLE mood. We have changed our minds about giving him up (for now) but are seriously dreading the other molars he will have to get. I guess we could consider just loaning him out to one of you when the next molar comes!
