Ella's First Virus/Fever?? (And Photo Drop)

First, I forgot to post some new photos of Ella wearing some of the new items, just some cute pics of E. :)

Second, I *think* Ella had her first virus...FINALLY!  She was perfectly fine all week, and then Saturday morning, she felt a bit hot, and had a low grade fever.  By 10 a.m., the readings were up to 106 degrees (but mostly in the 104's), so I rushed home from brunch and called the doctor.  The doctor said not to worry because babies' immune systems do often give really high temps, even for simple colds, and we just needed to watch her behavior.  We gave her some Motrin and cuddled with her (you know she doesn't feel well when she's super cuddly...she laid on my chest for 40 minutes!).  The weird thing is, within about 6 hours, her temp was back to normal!  She never had any other symptom.  Strange.  I'm still counting it as her first sickness since I really want her to get sick before preschool starts!  I guess 19 months is pretty good for not being sick once. :)

Update: Ella's fever was completely gone Sunday morning, but it slowly crept back up to 104.1!  We cannot seem to get it to go away.  We're trying not to give her Mortin for a while so that maybe the fever will break, but I'm a little concerned about it getting too high since it's already at 104.1.  She won't let us put a cold/room temp wash cloth on her face so we have one on her neck while she sleeps on Gary's chest.  She feels just HORRIBLE!  She keeps moaning and whimpering. :(

Update #2: Bottle at 7:30...vomited it all.  Put her to bed around 8 p.m.  About 9 p.m. she vomited all over herself and her crib.  As we were changing the crib, she vomited again all over the floor.  It's going to be a loooong night.
