Quick and simple layout of Brian for the first (and only) time he's had the flu. Poor guy.

Looking back on your almost 2 years of life, I consider you (and us!) pretty lucky that you’ve
only had the flu once! The third weekend in February, 2005, we put you in bed just like normal, and we settled down to watch a movie. You woke up around 10 with a different type of cry. Scott went upstairs to find you covered and your bed covered in what used to be your dinner. I was immediately thankful that we have a washer and dryer! That weekend you were so different than your normal self. You did a lot of laying around, and didn’t have your normal energy level. One good thing about you being sick was that you liked me holding and snuggling you. At some point in that weekend, we sat you on the floor and put on your favorite movie... Finding Nemo. We also gave you a few Chex because that was the only thing you would eat! We came back downstairs just a few minutes later to find you like this... using your frog as a pillow, and Chex clutched in your hand. You were sleeping so peacefully, and you hardly ever fall asleep anywhere but in your bed, so you were extra cute zonked out on your makeshift pillow. You did so well, and were such a joy to give a little extra TLC to. Thank goodness you were back to your energetic and fun self just a few days later! -Journaling June 2005
