prescription for baby fever: more infant cowbell

the "long division" face

This is the face of a 10-month-old baby who has a fever and is trying to calculate how many times over the past 24 hours his mother has stuck a thermometer up his butt.

Infant’s motrin has helped curb the fever, but the side effect is that Nathan does not sleep. It reminds me of that Gilligan’s Island episode when they found a crate of vegetables and after everyone had their share, they found out it was radioactive. Nathan’s is like Mrs. Howell, who ate sugar beets, since he zooms around as if someone’s hit the fast forward button.

I was once "this big"

This is also the body of a 26-pound baby boy who has clearly outgrown his Bumbo, a foam seat designed to hold a baby up to 14 months. He is puzzled that many months ago, he was “this big.”

  3. LOL Mona, he could be examing what he just pulled out from his mouth…

    He’s SOO cute. I hope he’s feeling better.

  4. Mona, once again, Nathan is adorable! What a chubby kid.

    For yours and his sake, I hope he gets better soon.

    Agreed, he is so edible! What a doll. I am sorry he’s been ill… that is rough on the mommy. I wouldn’t have guessed he was 26 lbs. Liam is 23lbs at 17 months. Watch, Nathan will be thinning out very soon, a growth spurt is in order.

  6. Wow this is really something else isn’t it?

    My children we both premies, but when they turned 6, they went through spurts of intense growth periods.
