It's getting hot in here...

I finally got off my flabby-Mommy boo-tay and got some new posts on Baby Gooroo. Check them out here, here, and here.
Feel free to leave a comment, too!
I'd be working on another post as we speak, but...

Buttercup has her first temperature. Not exactly a milestone I was eager to reach, and I suppose we are lucky to have gone almost 10 months without one so far.
Poor little princess has a 100.1 temp.
The really bad thing is that I thought she felt warm earlier in the day, but since every time since she has been born, I have been wrong when I thought she needed her temp taken. So naturally, after about 10 months of over-reacting, I thought I was just over-reacting.
She's been out and about, today, too, with a trip the the in-laws. Major oops on my part. (But the mother-in-law didn't catch it either, so I don't feel too bad...)
Even when Mr. L told me to get the thermometer this evening, I figured it would be another 98.7 reading. Boy, was I wrong. Not sure if it is a result of teething or if she is coming down with something.
Either way, she's sleeping right now as I do a few quick bits of cleaning in the house. No work tonight so I can rest up and make sure I don't catch anything she may have (right...), and be ready to take care of her should she need me tonight.
(I was going to post about my medical cluster-bleep of a postpartum experience thus far, but I'll save that for when Buttercup is napping tomorrow.)
