On August 27th, Braxton turned 4 months old! Hard to believe 4 months have gone by!?! The past few days have been pretty rough at our house. Thursday we found out Braxton has HFM=hand, foot, and mouth. For those of you that don't know what this is, because I sure didn' consists of a VERY unhappy little man, with a rash from head to toe, fever, blistery-pus-pocket filled soars in his mouth and down his throat, and blisters on his feet.(not his hands yet, thankfully!) and is very contagious! As you can imagine, he is very uncomfortable and not wanting to eat much at all. It's been a struggle to get him to eat anything, and trying to put him to nap or bed...just isn't working so well:( So, all you moms (and dads) feel free to throw some advice our way. The only thing we can do is give him tylenol and ride this out...they say it last about 5-7 days...

---on a better note...he weighs 14 pounds!!!

this picture was taken before he got sick...trying out the high chair for the first time...thanks Grandpa & Grandma P!

Standing by the couch

Trying to play and act happy...poor fella

He is happiest in the bath tub, and since he wouldn't take a bottle, he got cereal for the first time!

Took his cereal like a champ!!!


  1. I love that cute smile on his face. He looks so big sitting in his highchair! I hope he feels better soon. Poor lil man:(

  2. Although I know he is growing, he still looks so little in the high chair :o) Hope he is feeling better. Hugs and Kisses {{{{XXXOOO}}}}
