Poor Baby

Sweet Henry is sick. We went to the doctor today and he officially has his first ear infection and first sinus infection. With a nasty cough to boot. So he is now on antibiotics for the first time in his life. Making it nineteen months before the first antibiotic required sickness is pretty impressive if I do say so myself.

After the doctor we went to Chic-fil-a for breakfast, where he ate three entire ketchup packets, using his hash brown bite as a spoon. Can I count that as a vegetable for the day?

Next we went to pick up his prescription, where he finally was willing to taste a sucker, and not act like I was coming at him with a deadly weapon. It was instant love. Getting him in the car seat without taking it out of his mouth was a challenge, but we got it done.

Henry: "I don't feel good, woman. If I want to eat ketchup packets for lunch and become irrationally attached to a sucker, that's my prerogative."

Mama: "There is a song called My Prerogative! I used to..."

Henry: "Mama, I cannot tell you how much I do not care."

Mama: " Oh, FINE. I will tell you about it when you feel better."


  1. I hope he feels better soon!! Tristins ear infections were so pitiful last year! I am amazed that he went this are SUPER MOM!

  2. Oh Pour baby!!! I hope he gets to feeling better soon!

    I am really sick with sinuses & a very sore and swollen throat right now. Just went to the Dr. today to get some Meds. I am praying my baby doesn't get it too, because I'm miserable. And you know how that is.. WE all hate it when our sweet little ones are sick and don't feel good. And I hope he feels better.

    Take care,

  3. Sarah, I love the Henry and you dialogues! LOVE THEM!

    He is VERY cute with his sucker

  4. The ear infections can be so brutal. Poor little guy. I hope the antibiotics help clear it up and keep it away. He is such a cute little man.
