Henry = Champ

Well we went to Henry's four week check up today (can you believe it is time for his FOUR WEEK CHECK UP?!?!) and he has managed to gain an entire pound and grown an inch in the last week and a half! He is officially six pounds ten ounces and 20 inches long! This boy can put food away just like his mama!

(He is really working on that smile. It warms our hearts!)
It was actually great to hear that he has gained so much weight and that he is doing so well because we had a rough weekend around here. I went to the doctor on Friday and found out I had a bladder infection. No good at all. They put me on meds, but I felt like garbage on Saturday and Sunday. I was running a fever and had the body aches and chills. Just terrible.
Unfortunately Henry was not feeling great this weekend either. I didn't actually realize he was sick, I just thought he was cranky, but he did not want to sleep. At all. That is not good with a sick mama who wants to do nothing but sleep. He was up all night Friday and Saturday. Like didn't sleep and wouldn't let me put him down from 10:30pm - 5am. It...sucked. He was also spitting up a lot and his poop was different (what? Doesn't everyone blog about poop?? gotta love the mommy blogging...oh how times have changed). when I mentioned the poop thing to the doctor she said he had a virus. Apparently that is a classic sign. I am happy to report that the poop went back to normal last night and so did his sleeping habits. We were up for one feeding in the night which took about an hour and a half, but that is pretty typical. All is now right with the world again.
Anyway, here are a few new pictures of our little man. Are you all getting a little tired of all these pictures of Henry yet? I know I will get back to blogging about other things eventually, but for now he is still the top of the blogging topics...and will most likely remain a top topic for a very long forever. Still, I will someday work in other topics along with our sweet boy!
How funny is this picture? When I look at it all I can see is what he will be like when he is 16. He just has so much attitude in it!We made the big trip to my parent's house last night for my dad's birthday! Henry is a big fan of his Papaw!Before the trip he had to have his first real bath! We have given him many sponge baths, but it was time to break in the official bath tub! I thought he would hate it but he seemed okay with the entire process. Maybe he was tired of smelling like milk.
Of course, once he was clean he was ready to eat again. This is the face he makes to let me know it is time to eat. He makes it pretty much whenever he hears my voice. I have started referring to myself as the milk machine. Clearly the breast feeding is going well what with the ONE POUND weight gain in nearly two weeks. We are both really proud of ourselves!
