Wednesday night Mia had a really hard time falling asleep and once she finally fell asleep, she'd wake up SCREAMING. This is SO not like her and I had the horrible feeling that we may have another ear infection on our hands. She woke up Thursday morning with a fever and by then I was pretty sure about the ear infection. We were suppose to have a play date, but had to call and cancel and head into the doctor instead. Luckily we were able to get the only available appointment left for the day. I gave Mia a dose of baby fever reducer / pain killer and got her dressed and ready for the day. Since it was St. Patrick's Day, she wore her green. She was a big hit at the doctor's office in her green. :)
No pinching me - I'm in green!!!!
Stripped her down to cool off the fever, but had to leave the drool bib on my little slobber-monster. lol
Luckily, the medicine helped her feel SO much better! Besides an antibiotic, we also got some ear drops that helped with the pain. Thank you modern medicine for helping my sweet baby feel better so quickly!!! Because she was feeling better, we were able to go to a concert for part of SXSW (South by Southwest concert series). Luckily the noise reduction headphones that I ordered online on Tuesday came in the mail Monday morning so we were able to take Mia to the concert and not have the loud music bother her.
Thankfully after the initial event of putting the headphones on Mia, they didn't seem to bother her at all. The weather was perfect - warm with a light breeze and the bands were wonderful. We got to sit outside and listen to the bands Bowling for Soup and Blue October with our good friends Carlos, Eunice, Chrissy and even Zeus's sister Bertha made it in time from out of town. Such a fun night!
Mia in her noise reducers. :) They worked great, but kind of smooshed her cheeks and made her look like a hound dog. lol
The bands played against the backdrop of downtown Austin. Lovely!
Zeus took Mia up by the band for a little bit and contrary to the look on her face, she had a good time. :)
