After a long weekend in which he napped very little and was around lots of little kids, and in which daddy and mommy both fell under the weather, Jem finally has developed his first illness, complete with a fever. We gave him acetaminophen and fed him dinner, and he promptly took a spill from the couch, falling on his head for the first time, and threw up all over mommy. I guess it was a day for firsts, unfortunately not very good ones. Just one of those days! We're watching him very closely tonight to make sure he's okay. As long as his fever doesn't go up any more and he doesn't throw up again we should be able to avoid the ER tonight. Ah, the joys of parenting! Still, it was inevitable that he would get sick at some point before his first birthday, and ten months in isn't bad at all. I'm just praying my little dude has a better day tomorrow!
