Between her scream and her ear infections neither of us can hear

I love our pediatrician. Evie's horror movie scream started in the elevator and lasted through taking the vitals and questions asked by the nurse. I gave her a snack which provided a short lull. Evie got going again when Dr. LeDuc came in the room. Dr. LeDuc smiled and said, "I think she's going to be a fantastic singer!".

Evie's scream doesn't embarrass me or really even ruffle me anymore. It simply hurts my ears. But, I can't complain. She's the one that's on her third round of antibiotics for a double ear infection and she's not even one yet. The poor thing gets a runny nose and within hours she's got a fever over 102 and can't sleep.

Have I mentioned Evie is not a great napper? I mean, on the whole she's a very light sleeper. She sleeps through the night well, but if she does happen to wake up it can be a daunting task to get her to go back to sleep. Recently, we have tried more to let her cry it out. You can imagine how that goes. It's possible she could wake the neighbors kids with that scream and not just her sister. So, this is what happens now when she wakes up with these infections. We have found that if we take her out of the bed and out of her room for 15 to 20 minutes she goes back to bed pretty easily. What a sad little chickie :(

  1. Dang girl! You are on a blogging roll this week - kudos to seemingly doing it all while your littlest is sick! Poor thing.

    I had the same trouble as a baby and eventually had to have tubes in my ears. Do they even do that anymore?

    Anyways - I'm thinking of you guys and praying Evie feels better soon.
