Our Little Dracula

The bad news is that last night Cameron's hemoglobin count dropped again and he needed another blood transfusion.

The good news is that he was healthy enough this time to wear his vampire cape during the transfusion.

Could that be any cuter? I love his little Dracula cape. You go little fighter!!! He is just adorable. How much does he weigh now? With all the chaos, he sure seems happy all snuggled in your arms! Take care...

How cute is that? And quite appropriate for the occassion!

Karen said...

He is so cute! That little cape is adorable. Glad to see everyone is keeping their spirits up.

Hospitals aren't fun, but I'm so glad to see that the little man is strong enough to have a little halloween fun. Hmmm.... Transfusion and blood sucking vampire? Pun intended?

Sweet! I love the cape. Love his facial expression. I guess he's been around you enough already to know what he's in for. :)

Jennifer said...

Awesome costume!

Carrie said...

He looks very handsome in his cape!

Lisa Loo said...

I LOVE the look he is giving you! Here I am--getting a blood transfusion--and this is what you bring to the table??!! Really??!!

You are amazing--hope all of you can stay strong!

Bill said...

Personally, I'd be a bit nervous, the way he's eying your neck in the second picture. Pondering dessert, perhaps? O.o

Cute cape! Which begs the question will they let him get all dressed up for Halloween?

Ewww, and being Act Committee Chair, what are you planning for the ward? (typed very sarcastically)

Is everyone current on their blood donating? There are many little vampires in NICUs out there that need it. 1-800-GIVE-LIFE (Yep, I plugged the Red Cross in your comments, sorry.)

Helen said...

That picture is simply adorable! Hope your little fighter gets to come home soon.

Lindsey said...

Oh, Meanest Mom, thank you for that! I was giggling at my computer and thinking of what a wonderful perspective you have. I bet those NICU nurses gave a few sideways glances for your dark sense of humor. I found it especially funny because I'm reading Midnight Sun right now and thinking of all things vampires.

You're great, thanks for the laughs! :)

Steph @ Diapers and Divinity said...

You all must be the highlight of the NICU... seriously.

Just The Girl said...

Wow is he a trooper or what and oh so cute.

Marissa said...

He is the cutest Dracula I've ever seen. And he really sucks others blood. :)

HM said...

Yes!! The long-awaited vampire cape!! (Just wait till we finish the rest of the outfit!)

Thank you so much for today's smile moment, I love the look on his face in the second picture!

Tina said...

That is a pricelss pic. your spirit and attitude is an inspiration to us all.

Momma-of-5 said...

He's so adorable! And I love that you guys put a cape on him...=)

Leah said...

Cute, cute.

You should take a picture every year with him and the cape so you can see how much he has grown and how little he use to be. It'll be really funny when he's 16 and it can't even fit around his neck!

Okay, seriously. I don't usually laugh out loud before 8am. Then I had to explain to my husband what I was laughing at, which meant I had to explain all about how hilarious you are and how you have this baby in the NICU (He's like, oh yeah, that's hysterical). So then I showed him the picture and we decided you're awesome and if anyone in this family ever needs blood transfusions for any reason we're getting a vampire cape.

So thanks for the inspiration so early in the morning. :)

So you didn't have comments enabled in your recent post, but I wanted to tell you how amazing you are. Just that simple little "hey, she could use a nice thing" thought popped in your head with no thought to yourself shows how amazing you are.

I hope people pay that forward, the world could really use that right about now.

Gorgeous Mom and handsomest baby ever in his Cape. Loved the post about the pictures you took for the Mom in the NICU. You rock! Don't be so hard on yourself, you have had a lot on your mind. Glad to know all is well. He is really cute in that cape!! You are so creative!

Sue Ann said...

So, have you figured out how to add little fangs to that awesome cape for those extra special occasions--like the upcoming Halloween Holiday? I can't wait to see those pictures! I shared this post with my husband and he laughed out loud too. I have been a lurker on your blog for a couple of months couldn't resist commenting on this one. Thanks for brightening my days!

Debbie said...

You are soooo funny woman!!! You are my kind of mama!!!!

Keep us laughing!!! And we will all keep praying for camerons full recovery!!!

Kai said...

You seriously kill me!!! I love how you can always have the best outlook- your husband and children are very lucky to have you. I guess "we" are lucky for you writing this blog and letting us into to your life and clever mind!! thank you.
