What's for dinner?

Looks like we're having some Marcus tonight! And apparently he thinks it's hilarious.

But seriously, look at that cuteness. Couldn't you just eat him up too!?

My Lovely Weeds...

Never have weeds seemed so precious than they did today. Hand picked by my sweet little boy, given with such excitement. Such a lovely arrangement with various selections. My heart is smiling. (I guess now you know I've been slacking on my yard work, but I'm so glad I did)

We're at the bottom...

... of our fourth jar of baby food! Dad (of course) had the special touch and got him to finish his first jar last night. I think this means he's feeling better. Woohoo!

7 going on 10 (or more)!

Marcus hasn't been feeling well the past few days. He's generally been really happy, no fever, but he won't eat and has been having major diarrhea. Poor guy. Yesterday his main outfit during church ended up being nothing but his birthday suit and a diaper. He had a little explosion that dirtied everything he was wearing including his socks!

I've been waiting for his appetite to pick up and the diarrhea to die down, but today was day five! I called the doctor and asked if I should bring him in and they said yes (I wonder if they always say yes, just to be sure and to reduce liability, and steal more of my money...anyway...). We went in to see the doctor and with in the first minute of being there she opened his mouth and I was blown away! How did I not see those gigantic teeth coming in at the back of his mouth! I wouldn't want to eat anything either if I had tender gums like that. His top molars are coming in on both sides and the doctor said his bottom ones are likely coming in too even though we can't see any swelling. She said teething can cause diarrhea (and it probably doesn't help that he doesn't eat anything and will only nurse).

It's nice to know what's going on with my baby. I feel a little silly that I didn't discover this on my own. I often look in his mouth but never pulled back his cheeks in such a way that would reveal such useful information.

Go ahead and count those pearly whites!

There's seven! But not for long. With two molars(at least) and the bottom right one soon to be peaking through, he will have quite the set of chompers. Now I just need to figure out how to get him to broaden his diet. He's seem quite apposed to anything that's not mush. Oh, if he only knew what he's missing!
