And God Bless Buzz

Henry has not been feeling that great the past few days and I can't figure out what is the matter with him.

He has not been eating well, but has had the same level of energy with extra whininess. He has no fever or runny nose and has been sleeping great. He actually slept an hour later than usual this morning after being rocked for a while at 6:00 am {because we do not encourage early risers on holidays other than Christmas}.

He ate his breakfast slowly this morning and downed 2 glasses of juice. He actually sat in this chair for 30 minutes eating his Cheerios one by one {he never sits for more than 3 minutes}.
Of course he earned a banana sticker this morning for his puniness.

He sat quietly eating until he finally got tired of me taking his picture.

"Really, mom? Seriously?"
Look at that belly. I think he's going to be okay with his temporary lack of appetite {other than Cheerios} and not starve to death, don't you?

He's just kinda lethargic today- more than he has been in past days- and is watching TV quietly with his brother. This level of calmness and quietness has got me worried.

Anybody have a clue what this could be?

In other news, before Jason leaves every morning, we have a family prayer for our day. If the kids are awake, they join us and we pray aloud for our children, their teachers, any events for the day and special things in our lives.

This morning Ollie asked if Buzz could join us.

And we were happy to oblige, especially since today is Veteran's Day.

We owe a special thanks to the men, women and their families who serve our country and allow us to pray freely every day and sleep without monsters or nightmares. We are so thankful for all the soldiers, air men, sailors and space rangers.
Thank you for all your sacrifice. We appreciate you.

my son did this for 3 days when he was about 3 or 4 yrs old. not eating much and watching alot of tv. and i realy knew i had a prob. when he went for a whole weekend without draging every toy he owned into the living room. no fever, no n/v/d, but i found knots(lymphnodes) under his arm. and off to the dr. we went and it was mono.

He is SO stinkin' cute! I love his little pj's.

So sorry that he is feeling puny, though.

But, seriously, so adorable!

That face (on the first picture) could stop a war with it's sweetness. What a precious shot!!! You have such a gift for capturing the most tender looks!

Oh, poor little guy! How can one kiddo look so pitiful and so adorable at the same time?! I wish I had some advice, but I got nuttin'.

However, we thanked God for Elmo last night in our prayers. :)

He sure is a doll! Hmmm... teeth, maybe? I'm not sure exactly how old he is. Does he have his 2yr molars already? Otherwise, I got nothing for ya.

My little guy goes through spells of not eating good and then totally eating everything in the house, but extra whining does not accompany his change in eating habits. But, hey, no fever and no runny nose = good! :)

Hi! You're little man is too cute even when feeling a little down! I would say maybe some new teeth coming in. My DD#3 has some new ones coming in and seems to be having a lot of the same symptoms. Including the lack of hunger all the time per usual.

I hope he starts feeling a little better! If it continues on and you don't notice any teeth I would take him in to see if the Doc sees anything else you might not be seeing.

Sorry, but I have no idea what it could be. However, I would like to say that I want to kiss his sweet, precious, face! I mean, really? Could he BE any cuter? I think he and Taylor would make a cute couple. I'm just sayin'.
And how sweet that y'all have family prayer every morning. Love it.

Oh, Hil...he is such a precious 'puny' little man. :( I could just squeeze him!!! Those cheeks, those eyes...a doll!
I hope he feels better soon!
LOVE the last picture! Buzz is always needed for a prayer, right? :) SWEET!

Becky said...

i would like to eat him.
that is all.

Hollie and Janie said...

Glad to hear that he is feeling better!! It's so awful when you can't seem to help them feel better! You should have your own yard sale how-to show!!!

(so, obviously,im behind on commenting.... you got 3 for 1 deal on the comments:posts!)

OH. MY. GOODNESS. - this child is so cute! I'm feeling faint, just from looking at those eyes and cheeks. Plus, who can resist a child in PJ's? And that belly ... Gracious,I better look away before I go tell my husband I want another baby. He would seriously faint! And ban me from looking at your blog. Can't let that happen.
