Sick Boy

Henry has never been this sick before. He's usually not a cuddly baby but last night and all of today he wants nothing but to rest his sweaty little head in the crevice of my neck. Instead of trying to get into everything and communicate with everyone, he just lies around the house watching everything in a half asleep/too sick to care mode. All night he cooed and moaned in his sleep, almost like he was saying "Mama, I feel so bad right now". It breaks my heart so much, I started crying the first time he looked at me with his watery sick eyes.

I know we are so lucky that this is the first full blown cold H has gotten since birth (and he's already six months old) but wow, I can't wait for this all to pass. It's so hard knowing that your baby is completely uncomfortable and there is nothing that you, the person he trusts the most, can do to make him feel all better.

Oh I'm so sorry!! I know it's sooo hard to watch your baby feel bad. :-( I just hope that he gets over it soon, for both of your sakes. Hang in there!

oh poor baby! these pictures break my heart, i just want to reach out and give him a snuggle!
milo hasn't ever really been sick before which is great but also a worry that he's going to get really really sick when it finally happens.
i hope your little guy is back to his happy self soon!

Oh no! It's been a few days since I've been on your blog. I'm so sorry your little guy was sick. Glad he's doing better! And I'm impressed, somehow he still manages to be the cutest little guy while being completely miserable. That kid's got talent. :)

Ruari's shots did the same thing to her. She came home and slept 5 hours straight for a nap. And, she was wimpery and it made me so sad. Shots freak me out anyway.
