Sick Baby

We have a sick baby on our hands once again. I don't know what it is, but James seems to be having malady after malady lately. Must be the season!

Note: This picture actually isn't from his recent bout of sicknesses. We took this one when he had a cold with a fever before Christmas. Isn't it sad? :( Up until that point in his life, James had never really been sick. Now he seems to catch little bugs all the time.

Anyway, he had a little stomach thing the weekend before last, but it cleared up pretty quickly. A week or so before that he had a cold that left behind a nasty cough and an off and on runny nose. Then, he had a few days of fever and grumpiness due to his 12 month immunizations followed by a little rash on his face and tummy also caused by the immunizations (MMR specifically). By Friday he seemed happy and the rash and fever were gone. He still coughed quite a bit in the mornings, but we thought we were on the road to recovery.

Then, on Saturday afternoon out of nowhere, James threw up. And it wasn't just a little one like happened with last week's stomach bug. It was an honest to goodness, empty your stomach, event (sorry, TMI). It was the first time he had a real non-baby puking incident. He's a big boy now! I could have gone without this particular milestone, though. ;) Anyway, that's the only time he's thrown up so far, but he's not completely better either. His appetite is very small still and (more TMI) he's got a bit of diarrhea now.

Here's hoping he decides to get better before our trip next week!

Yuck. Poor kid. Poor you! I hope he feels all the way better soon.

That is the saddest picture I have ever seen! I hope he feels better soon!
