After their afternoon nap, when I pulled Nolan out of his crib, I noticed that he was burning up. I took his temp and, sure enough, he had his highest fever yet - 103.9. The pedi said to give him medicine and bring him into the office in the morning if he still had a temp.
Do you see my sweet Luke's sad face? Right after play time, they went down for naps. When Luke woke up from his nap, he now had a fever. My poor guys!! I guess he has a sore throat too, so I started him on the meds and held him in my lap where he was very content.
This brings me to the co-sleeping thing. Luke had a miserable night and he just couldn't get comfortable enough to sleep. His fever didn't come down until around 3 a.m. which is when Justin and I decided that we need to try and get some sleep so what do we do??
Let's let Luke sleep in bed with us where he's happiest and maybe we'll all get some rest. Luke got rest. Justin & I....not so much.
We have a king sized bed so surely this would be enough room for a 120 pound mommy, her 20 pound son and his 6'3" daddy. Well, it wasn't!! Luke wanted to be right half on / half off mommy while intermittently kicking his legs and smacking her in the face because he was feeling better.
When parents co-sleep with their babies, is everyone just used to it, so they sleep peacefully? I cannot sleep soundly when a baby is in bed with me. I'm afraid of moving. I got a pain in my shoulder from propping Luke up after he fell asleep.
We're all up now. I've consumed two cups of coffee while the boys are playing. They're fevers are gone and they seem to be in good moods. Hopefully their sore throats go away by tomorrow because I have a fun GIRLS weekend planned with some girlfriends!
