How Does Your Baby Say Thank You?

After re-examination of Parker last night at 11pm Parker still did not display a fever. The doctor felt that Parker looked well and was comfortable not starting him on the I.V. at that point. We were all in agreement that Parker would be checked for a fever amongst other things every hour throughout the night to see if antibiotics were warrented. Parker ended up having an excellent night and to this point is still I.V. free.

I understand that everyone has Parker's best interests in mind, whether it be the doctors, nurses, family or friends. That said, Parker can be rest assured that in the end his mother and father understand that they know him like no one else and will always be his final advocate.

After the doctor left last night and I had put Parker to bed, I repeatedly told him that his daddy loved him and that mommy and daddy promise to never let anyone hurt him. My little baby responded by staring his daddy in the eyes and holding the biggest and longest smile I have yet to witness.
