Sick Baby

Scene: Last night.

7:00 p.m.: Place baby in crib.
8:45 p.m.: Baby wakes up crying. Nurse baby.
9:00 p.m.: Return baby to crib.
10:55 p.m: Remark to husband from under covers, "I just want to hear the beginning of the news."
11:00 p.m: Baby wakes up crying. She has chills and is warm. Nurse baby.
11:15 p.m.: Return baby to bed. Crawl back under covers.
11:39 p.m.: Baby screaming. Get ibuprofen. Use bathroom. Turn on t.v. in baby's room to use light to administer medication. Hold washcloth to baby's face as she vomits medication back up. Nurse baby.
12:15 a.m.: Return baby to crib. Crawl under covers.
1:12 a.m.: Baby crying. Rock baby, nurse baby. Realize baby no longer has fever.
2:00 a.m.: Return baby to crib. Crawl under covers.
6:20 a.m.: Baby's awake.

Unlike yesterday, she was clingy and crabby. I didn't shower until after lunch when dear sweet husband took baby for a ride in the car. This was a long day. I put the baby to bed at 7:00 p.m. I hope she sleeps tonight.
