Today he cried a little lesser but still had difficulty drinking milk from the bottle. So Tracy tried a different way. She let Javier drank from a straw. Initially it worked pretty well but after drinking about half a bottle, he refused to drink anymore. As his intake of food is really not sufficient, we decided to let him eat some ice-cream. And he LOVES it!!! After he finished the bowl of ice-cream, Tracy poured milk into the bowl and fed him. Probably he thought it's still ice-cream so he finished all the milk.
Anyway, no matter what happened, we still have to cheer up because........today is Javier's 1st BIRTHDAY!!!!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY JAVIER!!!!! Let's forget about HFMD for a moment and enjoy!!!!!
We bought a Garfield cake for Javier as he had shown great interest whenever he sees Garfield. Jerlene was equally excited and cannot wait to sing the birthday song. Javier does not like to smile in front of a camera, unlike Jerlene who knows how to capture the best shot.... :)
After blowing the candle and cutting the cake, everybody had their share, including Javier. And guess what, he LOVES the cake! He enjoyed the cake so much that he seemed to have forgotten his pain. After he finished a piece, we took the bowl away and he screamed and shouted for more. Since today was his birthday, he gave him another piece and guess what, he wanted more after finishing it.......
We all had a great time having this small celebration. Hopefully, Javier will get better tomorrow. Cheers!
