This has proven to be a busy and sleepless week for both of us. Ian was sick for 3 days this week and he had a fever that stayed around 100 to 101 degrees even with Motrin or Tylenol, he has had terrible allergies which have made his eczema flare up (I think he is allergic to our Christmas tree), I discovered that he is allergic to amoxicillin, benadryl works wonders for his itchy rash that appeared over his head, face, neck, and torso because of the amoxicillin, he's started taking Allegra twice a day since his allergies have gotten worse, and, after we go to the doctor tomorrow for his 9 month check-up, we will have been to the pediatrician's office for 3 of the last 4 days. Thank goodness I had all of our Christmas shopping done last week! Our house is all decorated, and it has been fun getting ready for Ian's first Christmas, even though he won't understand what's really going on. We'll be sure to take lots of pictures and videos since Phil can't be here to share Christmas with us. Riding in his big boy car seat.
