They gave him for meds, and his fever went down. His ears were clear, his throat looked good, and his boogies were clear and watery. His tummy felt fine and he giggled while the doctor poked and prodded it. By the time we left he was dancing!!!
The nurse (who was probably late 50's) made us feel really bad for bringing him in. The dr. who has 3 kids and 1 is Brady's age was totally understanding why we were there. The nurse blamed the fever on teething. Maybe she knows more then me.... but 103.9 and teething? maybe 99.9 and teething....... I digress. (the place was empty, the nurses were all sitting around, I dont feel bad!)
Home we went, where Brady was so clingy to me. He wanted me to walk around with him, everytime I stopped or tried sittig down with him he cried and cried. After about an hour I was able to sit with him and he fell asleep on me. Today he is still clingy, but better. We are keeping him medicated.

I hope this goes ok, it's my first video post! this video is of B taking his antibiotic for his sinus infection. We have always fought him to take his meds, and it has been a PIMA! our ass actually, not just mine because it took 2 of us to get him to take it! Right now we are on round 2 of medication, so like day 13. A few days into fighting with him we started clapping like maniacs when we gave B his meds- even though he was screaming and fighting us. A few days later he started clapping to, and now he excitedly takes his meds.
Check out the video, and be sure and watch him cringe as he is clapping- this one is really really nasty tasting!
Chris and I decided we are professional parents for helping our 15mo old overcome his hatred for meds. ****pats own back**** we're figuring out this parenting thing. ;-)
just had to share! maybe if and when we go for #3 we will try this method again. ;-)
the post listed below this one, I wrote it last week, but waited to publish it till now.
We are still so excited!

Brady was an angel while we shopped! Perfect angel. It was such a good experience. So he got french fries for the trip home.
Dad splurged and got him swim trunks at the gap. I love the gap socks, so I picked out some. Really, it was just a ncie family day!

He is also starting to prefer to use a fork and a spoon! His plate even stayed on his tray for once! He is growing up so fast. I've got some cute pictures to post of my bigboy, maybe after friday when I finally get high speed!!!!

So we made a bed for him on the floor, and he goes to sleep like a rock star with out a fight at night, and has been sleeping all night long almost every night in the last 2 weeks.
I think we are gonna put his mattress on the floor next. Seems kind of pointless to fight a 14 month old back into his crib when the natural transition is heading towards a big boy bed. He seems so young, but what we are doing is working.
