And this time he is telling the truth. (Normally, “Mommy I’m sick” is his way of thinking of excuses to not go to bed).
So… my little baby had a tough time sleeping last night and this morning, we went to see the doctor as soon as we woke up. Tuggy was starting to lose his voice from the coughing and seemed to be in a lot of pain overnight. The poor guy’s voice sounded very raspy. As soon as we got to the room, I weighed him because I knew he would not allow the nurse to touch him. He weighs 36 lbs and 5 oz. Once the nurse came in, she tried to measure him, and we figure he measures “around” 38 and 1/2 inches…. he wouldn’t sit still for her! While we waited for the doctor, I calmed him down and we read books. When we got to talking, I asked him why his voice sounded like that. He raised his eyebrows exaggeratedly, and whispered, “I got animals in my mouth”. I asked him if he meant kind of like the “snakes in his tummy” … he said, “yes!”.
Apparently, his goal was to ask the doctor about the animals in his mouth, but when the nurse walked in, and administered a shot … he forgot all about it. He cried, and was very upset…. but now, several hours later he is doing much better!
