Well, we have another first to add to Charlotte’s memory book, but it’s one I prefer we didn’t have to add. She has gotten her first ear infection, and not only that, but it’s a double ear infection. 😦 When the doctor at convenient care told us last night, I cried because I felt so bad and like I should have known sooner that something was wrong. She had not been sleeping well the past few nights but seemed fine during the day, just smiling and mostly happy. Her teachers at daycare mentioned that she had been fighting her bottles some last week, but she wasn’t doing that at home with us, so we didn’t know what was going on. It wasn’t until last night when she started spitting out the formula in her mouth that I knew something was definitely up, so we took her in. I feel awful for her, but I am glad we took her in and have some antibiotics for her. This was definitely a lesson learned for me. Hopefully the antibiotics will start working quickly and our sweet Charlotte will be back to sleeping better and feeling better, and her tired parents can get some rest, too!
To cheer up this sad little post, here’s a picture my parents took of her when they kept her overnight last Friday while Stephen and I had a date night:
