I didn’t know it at the time, but my poor baby had a double ear infection and was in a lot of pain.
No, at the time I was thinking only about how whiny and needy he was being and how I just wanted to be able to put him down for a minute. Little did I know that it was about to get much worse before it got better. That night Kei and I took turns sitting up with Samuel – the only way he was comfortable.
Thankfully we had his nine month appointment the following day and were able to get some antibiotics. It took another couple of days before we got our baby back and, now that he’s back to normal, I realize just how miserable he was.
