He eats!

Well, sometimes he does better than others. Yesterday he thought the sweet potatoes were pretty yummy.

I put that last little clip in there so you could see his little squinty-eyed courtesy laugh when he doesn't want what we're offering. Like, nice try, but you're kidding, right?

Dorian has been sick off and on for about 8 weeks now. He had a fever, a runny nose, a cough, another fever...and then an allergic reaction to an antibiotic and a bad ear infection. Throughout all this, he stopped eating well and lost 8 ounces. Fortunately, he is now almost done with his second antibiotic, the cough and the ear infection are gone, he is eating much better, and he has regained the weight he lost. Unfortunately that still only puts him in the 1.5th percentile for weight. Should we all just keep our kids home all winter? And ourselves? Or is this really "good for their immune systems," like we all keep hoping?

Glad he is doing a lot better. I think this winter was just really bad, I don't remember going through anything like this with my oldest (my baby has had ear infection after ear infection) I think it's good to get out and get fresh air, you just have to be careful about where you are going I guess.

I'm sorry he's been so sick. There's not much that worse than having a sick child. Hopefully next winter won't be so bad.

Did you try that sleeping book I told you about?

I love that laugh! Will you come have dinner with us so we can all share in the fun?

You're going to choke him if you keep making him laugh like that while you're feeding him.
