Yeah, I know. This is supposed to be a blog of cute pics and these pics are definitely not cute. But I thought there might be some Mommies out there who have never seen the hand, foot, and mouth virus and would want to know what it looks like. If I hadn't worked at daycare and seen it before, I would have probably freaked out when they popped up! Just so you know she was fussy and didn't want to eat the first day, had a high fever days 2-4, seemed a little better day 5, was a miserable, fussy baby day 6, popped out with a several tiny spots on her hands and feet day 7, and had the full blown spots climbing up her arms and ankles day 8. She kept a low-grade fever days 5-8 and was pretty miserable and fussy. The spots are definitely painful. The spots can stay up to 10 days, but supposedly she is only contagious the first week. I'm hoping tomorrow she feels a lot better!
