No fun

We have been stuck inside the house since Tuesday! I took Ellery to the doctor Tuesday morning because she was still running a fever. Turns out she has an ear infection! She has never had problems with ear infections so I am relieved that I actually took her in. Usually, the doctor (who looks like Steve Carell I might add) takes one look at her, and says she looks great and it is probably just a virus. On top of the infection, it seems she has some kind of a little stomach bug as well. Nothing quite as horrific as ones in the past, but a small one that just can't be comfortable. And on top of that, she has two new teeth trying to poke through. Needless to say, she has been kind of miserable the past couple of days. I think her antibiotics are doing their job though and she will be healthy by the weekend.

And I must add that I am now 99.5% sure we are having a little boy. My morning (or shall I say all-day sickness) peaked this week and I have been pretty miserable myself. Either I never felt this way with Ellery or it has been forever erased from my memory since 1st laying eyes on her as a newborn. I keep asking Nathan if every food tasted this bad when I was pregnant with E. Seems my only real staple is peanut butter and bread or just bread and butter.

Okay, enough about being sick! On an entirely different note, here is a list of items that are in Ellery's bed tonight with her:
5 loveys -She likes to have them all, yet really only likes the two that have her name monogrammed on them.
a pillow - this is new for her and she will only sleep on the side that is silky
a blanket
two balls - she now takes these to bed with her so that her dog doesn't sneak away with them while she is sleeping (which is highly likely)
a laughing babydoll - We tried to make it disappear but she would not have it. it is very alarming when we hear it laugh through the monitor at 2am
3 pacifiers

Wow! What a change from a year ago when I wouldn't even let her have a blanket!

Oh and one more thing, do you think the baby thing to the right is creepy? I am thinking it will look better the bigger it gets!

Aww, I hope Ellery and you get to feeling better.Mason has a double ear infection and I almost didn't take him to the doctor because he didn't have a fever and I originally thought he was teething, but I'm glad I did. I had just a little morning sickness with Mason, about once a week for 4 weeks and it was still tough. I can't even imagine how hard it can be with having a toddler running around.

I don't think the baby thing is creepy! I was laughing to myself as I read your post because of our conversation at Christmas about the name Nathan likes for a boy.....it just brought back that memory. But if you DO use that name, I think I could get on board with it! :)
