We hated to do it, but...

Eli got a buzz. He just would not sit still long enough for us to get all of the nits out. I don't really like the buzzcut look, but I like bugs even less. So, out came the clippers and bye-bye creepie crawlies. He looks so different, but still adorable!!

On top of battling little bugs, Eli also developed a very bad cold and we think he also has croup. He has that awful barky sounding cough and it gets worse at night. For about 3 nights, he woke every 30 minutes because he was either coughing or so congested he couldn't breathe through his nose. Poor baby! Luckily, he is past the worst of it and on the mend! So, we ventured out to the park today to enjoy the beautiful weather.

He still looks adorable in his buzzed cut! Glad he is feeling better.

Oh, he looks just adorable with a buzz cut. And I agree, better buzzed than bugs! I think that nasty cough thing is its own bug that's been going around. Glad to hear he's on the other side of that one!

He is so cute with the buzz cut. (No surprise to you;0P) At least it's summer and he can grow it back out this fall!

Beth said...

I know it was hard, but he is just as cute as ever... and a buzz for summer probably feels great! What a time you have had. So glad you got to get out and just have some good family fun. That is what you have been waiting for all these months. Thinking of you!
