first fever

We got the first "your baby has a fever" call from daycare yesterday. Not nearly as horrible as I expected our first sick kid call to be. Likely the result of shots the day before, the fever was coming down on its own before we got Oliver home and we never saw him acting at all sick.

He absolutely loves Tylenol so that part was easy. We're still not entirely sure how the temporal artery scanner works, but CD and I got basically the same readings so we're either doing it right, or doing it wrong in exactly the same way.

After an all-too-normal night of sleeping for intervals of between 90 and 150 minutes, his temp is back where it should be today.
