I had told my son last week that a package was coming for him in the mail, wow, big mistake!! Everyday he has gone out to get the mail, and when the package was not there he would ask me when it was coming?! It was cute though to see him anticipate the arrival, and to learn that sometimes we just have to be patient! My sister and brother-in-law sent my son a book (they always give the nieces and nephews books, it is great!) for his birthday, they do not just get any books but my sister will hunt for books that we had and LOVED when we were kids. This year they got him "From Castles in the Clouds"by V. Gilbert Beers. It is about Maxi and Mini Muffin along with Bible stories (there are multiple stories in this book). They use the stories about the Muffin family to help our children understand what the Bible stories are saying. Anyway, it is a great book!!! I don't think it is in print anymore so she has located them on Amazon (correct me if I am wrong)! Big C loves books, although I am not sure who was more excited about this one, him or me! It was fun to read him the stories though and look at the pictures (I always thought the pictures were so beautiful as a kid), and reminisce about my childhood!

Sooooo, little C has been basically not eating for two weeks. Not totally, but he went from eating 3 meals plus oatmeal before bed, and nursing or bottles mixed throughout the day. Now he eats 2 meals, breakfast and oatmeal before bed and has only one bottle a day (along with diarrhea). So you are probably wondering why I let it go on so long? Well, he started out with a really bad cold so I at first blamed it on that, he then started getting 2 more teeth (at the same time of course) so I thought maybe that was why. I finally called my doctor today and she wanted to see him. Long story short they will be running a bunch of stool tests on him (good times will be had by all), and if those are clear then they will maybe start him on Zantac. Little C has a VERY sensitive stomach (genetic sad to say); I could not eat any dairy, broccoli, or lettuce while nursing. My theory is that he is getting a stomach ache when he eats, thus he does not want to eat. Now we will wait and see what the tests say, and then go from there. I am not worried, but I do feel bad for him. He is still very smiley and happy, just a little more sensitive and wants to be held more (can't blame him:( So, if you think of it, please pray for him and that we can get it all squared away quickly.

On a side note: Check out my sister and brother-in-law's blog, she started blogging 2 or 3 years ago (she was the first one in our family, and the first time I had ever heard of it) and then stopped a little while back, but has now started again! Yea! So, let her know you stopped by!:)
