He is Human, Afterall.

No, I am not talking about Tiger Woods. I am, of course, as always, talking about my little boy, Brock.
After all this talk at his birthday party about how Brock had made it an entire year without having one, single sick visit to the doctor (I warned Matt he was jinxing us for sure!!) the day finally arrived. Brock went in yesterday due to a fever for the last 4 days & increasing green snot production, as well as a bit of coughing, fatigue and conjunctivitis. He was diagnosed with a dual ear infection! Had he not physically appeared to be knocking on death's door, you would have never known the kid was sick; still playing, dancing, running around, talking, eating, etc. I have to say, even in sickness I think he is the most adorable thing I have ever seen.

One perk, he will actually let me hold him or sit in my lap for more than 30 seconds. I wonder if a cuddly child is even genetically possible for us?

I have found that cuddles increase with age... at Brock's age, Aiden was so thrilled with his mad walkin' skills that he had only two modes: walk/run and sleep. Now we do enjoy an occasional cuddle.

Poor guy, at least he is still happy!


ps. Happy Birthday to BROCK!!!

That sounds just like Jonas - glad that I am not the only one with a kid that won't sit still and cuttle with me. Maggie, it is good to hear that it gets better.

Hope Brock is feeling better by now?!
