A weight check and a flu shot







So, many of you out there probably aren't familiar with weight checks...Well, they are a regular occurence around here. I think we went to the doctor every 4 weeks for a whole year with Wilson. We go today for Henderson's weight check and second flu shot. Why a weight check? To make sure he's not losing weight since he was not even on the growth chart at his 6 month check up. The ironic thing is, the last 4 days, he's averaged about 10 ounces of formula or breast milk per DAY!!! He's just stopped eating - his first tooth broke through 2 nights ago, so I'm blaming it on that, but oh golly, we're in trouble! He's eating babyfood fine - 3 jars a day, but WILL NOT TAKE A BOTTLE OR NURSE, so my milk is drying up and he is probably losing weight - I'm glad the doctor will check him out though, just to make sure there is not something else going on, but it is never-ending around here! And to add to that, Wilson threw up last night - no virus here, he was eating a piece of cake and dropped his (my) drink, got so upset and started gagging and finally threw up - luckily I knew it was coming and had him leaning over the kitchen sink - that boy can throw up on command I tell you!






Well, enough about those fun topics - we have a BUSY week. I have to work extra for some Christmas parties we are having around here, and we have church and Will's work party, EC's gymnastics program, a church program, a basketball game, a neighborhood party... and on and on. - Next week, though - only 1 thing (as of now)! I guess everyone had the same idea of planning the parties and events NOT the week before Christmas!






We are still having a blast with our elf friends, though they didn't do anything CRAZY last night - WHY???/ B/c we had some serious whiners yesterday and the elves were too tired from telling Santa all they did wrong, by the time they got back to our house, they fell fast asleep!


I forgot to mention - Emma Claire had her choir program at church on Sunday night - it was too cute! Such a wonderful group of children and teachers!



Enjoying the wonderful CHRISTmas season!

a bunch of whiners...it must have been in the air yesterday. i thought my eardrums were gonna bleed!!

if he is getting a tooth, it is entirely possible he may have an ear infection since they go hand in hand lots of times. that may make him not want to suck. poor fella. hopefully he's not just being a stubborn little man.
