Poor Isaiah

Our little guy is sick. He's had a high fever since early sunday morning- so sad for us! His fever finally got down under 100 for a while this afternoon, but we can tell he's still not feeling well.  Something is definitely going around- 3 of my friends' sons have been sick this past week as well. Any tips for getting a baby to drink fluids when they don't really want to?

Good news though, when we took him to the doctor today, we found out that he's gained almost a pound in the past 2 1/2 weeks! Good 'ol formula. On the downside though, it would have been really nice to be able to nurse Isaiah the past couple of days. He has not gone for it except in the mornings when he is used to nursing.

Thankfully, David's mom happened to be down visiting this weekend, so she has been an amazing help for us-loving on Isaiah and helping out around the house. We even got to sneak away today for a little day-date. Thanks Nonna!

Oh, how I wish he could communicate with us and tell us how he is feeling...

Fingers crossed that he will sleep well tonight and wake up feeling better.
