It seems that AJ is FINALLY feeling better. I am pretty sure all this sickness was related to teething; at least that's what most of my mom friends are saying. He was crying uncontrollably, not sleeping well, VERY needy, had a runny nose, wasn't eating and then to top it off had diarrhea for 3 days. POOR KID!!! He was just miserable! (so was I)

Finally, he's eating a little better, and not nearly as cranky. I haven't actually seen a new tooth but that doesn't mean much. He rarely lets me dig around in his mouth.

Enjoy- it's pretty cute!

Feel Better!

Poor AJ just does not feel good. I REALLY hope he's teething, because I don't know what else it could be. First, a few days ago, I thought the problem was that he was constipated (TO MUCH INFO sorry) but that is not the case now. As I mentioned yesterday, he's still not eating much- however I gave him a bunch of Honey Nut Cheerios and he loved them- and he just cries for no apparent reason....many times during the day.

I feel bad saying this, but the whining is driving me insane and knowing that he's USUALLY such a happy boy makes this so hard! He's not sleeping well, will not entertain himself for very long like he typically does and ONLY wants me. In a way it's very sweet because he hugs me so tight, but along with those hugs comes uncontrollable crying and obvious pain. I feel soooo bad for him. I wish he could talk so he could tell me what is wrong and I'd know how to help.

Let's hope tomorrow is a better day!

Picky Picky!

I don't know what happened, but all of the sudden AJ has become this SUPER picky eater. I don't know if he's not feeling good, or his taste buds changed or what, but this is tough!

I have A LOT of homemade baby food in my freezer that I'm afraid I may have to throw away since AJ's not at all interested in it. I keep opening new jars of food and he may take one bite, but then he scrunches his nose and bats it away. It's like he's not hungry anymore...for anything!

I know that he will eventually eat when he's hungry, but I don't like the fact that he used to be such a great eater, and now this. When I give him actual bites of food (pancake, goldfish, watermelon, etc) he puts it in his mouth and then takes it out and drops it on the floor. GRRR!!

I hope this phase ends quickly.
