I feel so bad for Malachi right now. On Saturday, I noticed that he had a tiny little sore on the tip of this tongue like I get when I bite my tongue. Sunday morning it was a bit bigger and had turned white and looked like food stuck to his tongue. I didn't think anything of it since I get those whenever I bite my tongue. This morning, it looked like it had doubled and it was sticking out further than the tip of his tongue would normally. Samuel called the doctor while I was at work and they said that it is most likely a virus and that it would need to run its course. They also said that we needed to watch the skin on his hands and feet, since if he started to get blisters there, he might have hand-foot-mouth disease. I looked it up on webmd and the name makes it sound so much worse than it actually is...I was thinking the thing cattle get!!! haha I was so wrong!!! No huge deal and seems like a fairly "normal" kid thing to get. He didn't eat very much at dinner tonight, so I hope it isn't hurting him too much. He seemed fine after a dose of tylenol. Hopefully he'll sleep through the night...he didn't last night and I wonder if it was bothering him.
We have learned a new word..."uh oh". Samuel and I have been saying it when he drops a toy or falls down, and he is just now starting to say it. First he only said it to Daddy, but in the last couple of days, he says it whenever we say it, even if there is nothing to "uh oh" about. He thinks he is pretty hot stuff when he says it and gets the cutest little grin on his face. Man, I love that kid!! :)
