Right after Henry turned 9 months, we were surprised to find out at his routine check up that he had double ear infections. This made a lot of sense in retrospect, but the dude didn't give us a clue he was having any trouble other than a runny nose and what we thought was distracted bottle drinking. One round of antibiotics later and he was a new man - sleeping better, eating like a champ, etc. He also put on some of the weight he'd been lacking (he was only in the 7th percentile at 9 months, as he wasn't eating much.) At least now we know he's not much of a complainer in the illness department and what to watch out for.
Nana and Papa came out to Denver to visit for Chad's birthday/Mothers Day weekend in mid-May. We had a lot of fun getting quality time with Henry, including a trip to the Denver Aquarium for Daddy's birthday and a great dinner in Boulder Sunday evening. We will see them again when they come out for Henry's first birthday in August!
We also took a road trip to Kansas City for Memorial Day weekend. As per usual, Henry came down with a health issue - this time hand, foot, and mouth disease. But again, he didn't let it get him down, and didn't even run a fever. So we still had a great time visiting with friends and family, and he earned a week out of day care in quarantine when we returned. At least that one is out of his system already!
And now for the pics!
