Skinny Baby

First off, this is the face Eli makes every time I get the camera out. Apparently he's smiling because he says "Cheese!".

Eli was painting tonight and I jumped at the opportunity to get a couple of cute pictures. I realized while I was taking them that my little guy is shrinking, and I could see his ribs. He's had the stomach flu all week and he had a cold the week before, the poor kid has had a tough time. Honestly he's not the only one, morning (all day) sickness and cleaning up after the stomach flu don't really mix. He hasn't had an appetite all week, and the little we get him to eat doesn't have much time to do him any good. Today was the first day he really seems to be improving, he ate a yogurt for breakfast, 2 chicken nuggets for lunch and 1/2 a pancake and a piece of toast for dinner, that's more than he's eaten all week. Luckily he's been drinking a lot, so dehydration hasn't been an issue.
Here's to 13 weeks and hoping for an end to the nausea, and not having to do a load of laundry at 2:30am for a long time!
