After Baby G being so sick this past week my mom said, "Thank goodness for his head! If he didn't have a big head he wouldn't weigh a whit!"
I have lots of stuff to blog about. Posts pile up in my head like laundry when your child is sick. That's what we've been dealing with this past week. Baby G got his first full-fledged illness, and it wasn't pretty. I'll spare you the details, but the worst part was that after not really eating (or keeping food down) for five days he had lost 3 pounds. He was already a pretty skinny boy, but when you are as tall as he is it isn't healthy to only weigh 24 pounds. I almost felt sick when I looked at his boney little body. But here's the good news. For the past two days he has been waking up begging for a burger and fries. He's never requested that before, so it cracked me up to hear him pleading , "Wan a burger, Mama. Wan fries. Dip it?" You better believe that I promptly took him to the nearest McDonald's as soon as it was lunch time. It did my heart good to see him eating all that fat. Last night we were out and about when he started asking for "beans and rice and chicken." I knew he meant Chipotle. Again, he's not really ever been one to request specific foods, but after 5 days of nothing, I think his little body was craving some good food and he let me know. I turned around and stopped at Chipotle and let him eat as much as he wanted. I'm hoping he gains 5 pounds, can you tell? Our eating out budget will be gone before J and I even get the chance to go on a date, but we'll eat Rice-a-Roni for the rest of the month and let Baby G eat whatever his little tummy dictates if we need to :).
