Poor baby. It was Kenya's first Birthday and he got sick. I always thought that nursing him for a year would ward off all the viruses that seem to plague little ones. Nice try. Babies and kids get sick and there's so little you can do to prevent it, but I'm always willing to give it a try.
He wasn't feeling himself and I wanted to make sure that he had some food in his tummy to fight off whatever had gotten a hold of him. I've always read that chicken soup is the best thing to eat when your sick, so I tried to come up with something similar that would go down easy and that I could cook in a jiffy. He took one look at it and decided that he would open his mouth and give it a try. Within hours he was feeling better. Maybe it was the food, or maybe Mommy's TLC. Whatever it was, he started to smile and feel better.
