We went to the pediatrician office again 2 weeks back when both the kids down with mild fever. Samuel also had finally caught Daddy’s 2nd wave of the mightier bug :O
Samuel’s fever persisted for a few days but Alaina’s fever broke the day itself after a dose of paracetamol. All was good; according to the doctor, a fever register at 38.4C is slight, 37.4C is considered as no fever and is high if the fever is above 39C.
He does not recommend over-medication… in other words, no medication is required if fever is mild. But then, mild is subjective eh? Parents always tend to have different interpretation :p
Alaina’s weight has been quite static at 7.6kgs for the past 2 weeks. Still a very healthy number for her 65cm length.
She smiles a lot and hasn’t stop smiling since she discovered the art at month 2. But then she wails equally as much too, most of the time for company. The gal does not necessarily need to be picked-up or be carried around (although that’s her ultimate favorite pastime), she just doesn’t want to loose sight of us. She absolutely likes to see her big brother dancing and talking to her. This comes mighty handy when Mommy’s hand is too full. Samuel can take over baby-sitting for a wee while : )
Another of her favorite pastime is balancing on her tummy and her tummy only.
See, no hand and no feet
Like an aeroplane
She’ll fly and fly until she tires out
Her head and torso are quite steady now. We’ve tried to put her on the high chair cushioned with pillows and bolster. She ain’t liking it yet but getting there.
On the diet front, she is still latching on directly for breastmilk. Mommy is trying the bottle with water now and she is not rejecting it as violently already. We say that’s a victory, looks like success might just be around the corner : )
