Jillian either has issues with tylenol or shots or its a combination of both. As I mentioned on Tuesday she vomited several ounces of formula that day after her oral vaccine and a dose of infants tylenol later in the evening. Then the next day she vomited several ounces after my MIL gave her tylenol because she was running a fever of 100 degrees and then she did the same thing for me again that evening. Each time was less than an hour after her last bottle, and while she didn't seem to mind the tylenol immediately after she swallowed that and more came back up. She did keep things down on the dose given before her appointment and the next morning, but in both cases it had been a long time since she'd ate last. She also had tylenol just find after her 2 month shots. Although she has otherwise been her chipper self, I called the doctor seeing as how this was a trend at all. The problem is that it is difficult to tell exactly what might be causing the whole problem. A reaction to the shots? Not tolerating the tylenol? Coming down with something else? Who knows. As long as she seemed to feel okay and the temperature didn't get over 100.4, the doctor said not to worry.
This morning her fever is gone, but our night wasn't exactly fun. She went to sleep at 8:30pm and after a quick paci wake-up around 10pm and woke up hungry at 12:30am. Being the one without a paying job, Jeramy got up with her. At 2:45am, I woke up to hear him pleading with her to fall asleep. I took pity on him having been in that exact situation so many times before, and took over the coaxing baby to sleep duties. I was successful by about 3:15am. Then at 4:30am she woke up again and wouldn't fall back to sleep. By then my alarm clock was about to go off, so I got ready for work while Jeramy fed her a bottle. Everybody was still awake when I left around 5:45am and I think she remained so until Jeramy dropped her off at his mom's at 6:30am to go work on the old house. We went to bed around 9:15pm, so Jeramy is operating on about 5 hours of sleep. I'm doing a little better with about 7 hours of sleep but more wake-ups. Compared to a newborn that's not so bad I guess. It's just that we've gotten used to sleeping again...regression is so hard. I'm sure it's just the shots and being hungry since she puked up half her bottles yesterday, but I can't wait for things to get back to normal. Of course, it seems like normal is relative term these days, as life in the house of still-packed moving boxes seems anything but normal.
Jeramy has gotten a ton done on the house, and it should be listed by next week. The open house is from 1-4pm on the 21st. We joked that we should go and pretend to be interested in the house. We could utter (loudly) phrases like:
"What a brand new roof with a 5 year transferable warranty? Wow!"
"Look at this beautifully remodeled kitchen. So much cabinet space. All of these new appliances stay? Amazing!"
"I can't believe they are selling this house at such a low price. Let's offer over asking price. I'd hate to let such a good deal slip away!".
A bit dishonest, perhaps. But tempting. Very tempting. I pointed out that the other option for a quick sale was offering Jillian with the house. She is awfully cute after all. But after some thought we decided we'd much rather keep her and go bankrupt.
