    Poor little man!! Ugh.

    Poor little guy! You’re right – he looks like he’s been in a brawl! Just tell everybody: “Yeah, well you should see the other guy!”. On second thought – don’t.

  • Sarah says:

    Awww! Poor little dude! My nephew had that on (in?) the eye region of his face as well, about a year ago. Glad you caught it before it got any worse. Still adorable, though. 🙂

  • Kristina says:

    Poor baby!! Hope he feels better soon!

  • Fiddle1 says:

    Boo! Poor baby! I’m so sorry!!I had a friend with that on his leg and it was noooo fun. I’m guessing you are so far behind on sleep the world is a terrible place right now. Hugs to all of you.

  • zelzee says:

    Poor baby!

    Glad you got it looked at quickly!!!

    Now you know why I color my hair……..and have been for years!

  • jenni says:

    dude I had that… on my BUTT! Freaking made me soooooo sick. Did they give him some good antibiotics?

  • Minnie says:

    Tell the truth, you took your kid to the bar with you and when they tried to cut you off a brawl started.

    All kidding askide poor Alex looks like he’s totally miserable.

    Hope he’s feeling better soon.

  • Kristine says:

    Poor little dude. I hope he feels ok, even if he looks awful.

  • I’ll definitely say it, too – Poor little dude! I hope he’s feeling better soon!

  • tina says:

    Hrm. I thought I commented from my phone. Guess it didn’t go through.

    My 2 month old just had a bout of staph on her arms. It was NASTY. Her milk allergy induced eczema somehow got infected with it and it oozed like you wouldn’t believe. She was on cephalexin and acyclovir for 10 days. That was fun!

    Hope he’s better soon!

    Poor little guy!

    At a quick glance, it looks like he’s knocking back a beer in that photo – which goes well with the shirtless, bed-head, messed-up eye look that he’s also sporting.

    I hope the antibiotics are good to you!

  • tash says:

    Ok, quirky confession time: I used to get cellulitis like that, on my cheek, leading up into my eye, EVERY SPRING. Right around allergy time. My first was on my 30th birthday in ’99; my last was April or so in ’05. The GP kept telling me to go to an allergist; the allergist kept flailing hands and telling me to go to a GP. Finally, the GP suggested when allergies were bad and things were feeling funky in my nasal passages (we made some connection given they always happened around my passages next to my nose or under my eye) to swab my nose with neosporin on a q-tip for a few days.

    Seriously, there must be more of these outbreaks, but apparently we haven’t made the med journals yet. Mark it on the calendar, and next year, start swabbing.

    Hope he feels better fast — those hurt like a mofo.

  • Kerrie says:

    Dude….Kind of makes me look a little bad ass, don’t it? The way he’s looking at the camera…..Like he was just in a big ol’ toddler rumble….”You want a piece of this mom? huh? Come over with that medicine…Let’s see where I stick this bottle!”

  • Amanda says:

    Having just gotten over our kick ASS staph fun I can say that it’s major suckage. I’m glad too that you didn’t wait like we did – you know, until it swells up and it’s obvious that it’s no longer a little pimple.

    You’re smarter than me! Hope Alex feels better soon.

  • ainebegonia says:

    I guess I’ll join the chorus. Poor little dude! Hopefully they gave you so good antibiotics to knock that infection on its @ss.

  • He is all kinds of adorable. His boo-boos will heal soon enough.

  • kbrients says:

    oh no… poor little man 🙁

  • Suzy says:

    Oh man, that sucks for him! Hopefully it’ll go away soon. He’s still way handsome though 😉

  • Thomas says:

    Mom on the vodka, little man on the beer….

    I’d be knocking back a beer too though after a fight that left me looking like that!

  • GingerB says:

    Um, I know he’s like, your child and not mine, and everything? And we are not even in the same state, let alone room? But um, that eye looks so sad it kinda made my milk let down. OK, that was weird and stalker-y. I don’t want to feed him anymore. Really. Damn, that eye. Whoo.

  • Ms. Moon says:

    Thank goodness for antibiotics, right?

  • Sunny says:

    I have no idea what that is, but it looks nasty! Sorry for you and the munchkin. 🙁

  • Oh I *just* went thru that on my ankle/foot area from my burn. It was huge. I took a gazillion antibiotics. Bleah. Hope it goes down soon!

  • Betty M says:

    Uggh – poor Alex. I’ve been there – it sucks. Bring on the antibiotics.

  • Betts says:

    How do I keep me and everyone I love from getting that? Poor little bugger.

  • shay says:

    aw…poor little man!
    What is that exactly?

  • SciFi Dad says:

    Poor Alex. Wait… that doesn’t mean he has cottage cheese thighs, does it?

  • kalakly says:

    Whew, swine flu it ain’t. Hope he’s feelin spry and sassy in no time and back to his old tricks lickity split. And you, don’t over medicate yourself…too much.:O)

  • deb says:

    Oh poor baby. I just wanna love on him. Wait…is it contagious?

    Hope he gets better quick!!

  • Stacie says:

    Aw, poor little guy. I had a nasty case of cellulitis thanks to a nasty cat bite. Good luck getting him to take the antibiotics. I feel like I end up with more in the floor than in the kids when they get sick.

  • Marinka says:

    Oh no! I don’t know what it is, but I’m sure that I now have it.

  • mnsm31 says:

    thats what celliulitis can do? omfriggin god.
    how did that , and or how can that happen? from a cut?

    ow, ow,
    that could have not been a fun night.
    I hope Alex feels better and gets better soon, and I hope you recover soon too.

  • baseballmom says:

    Dang, that sucks. My kids both had mrsa, and we had to put antibiotic stuff inside our noses for a couple weeks so no one else would get it…even the dogs!

  • mumma boo says:

    Poor baby! Hope he feels better soon! And, as much as it pains me to say this, you’ll need to refrain from smooching those cheeks on my behalf, just for a little while. On the upside, you could teach him to do a killer Stallone impression. “Yo, Adrienne!”

  • magpie says:

    Oh man! Poor boy.

  • lady lemon says:

    Shit, dude. A night in the ER? I know that sucked.

    Good to know that little Alex is ok, though. Poor guy.

  • JJ says:

    Well crap! Im SO sorry–hope everyone is doing OK. Big hugs, Alex!!

  • Danielle says:

    Awww poor lil guy! Get better soon, Alex!

  • Kendra says:

    Oh, that poor little man! When I was studying abroad in Africa, I got a nasty, nasty staph infection all over my face–huge open sores that wept and grew and wept and grew. It was glorious. And best of all, people stared wherever I went. Finally, when a man on the bus turned and asked me, “What happened to your face?” I just snapped, “It’s leprosy!”

    Do you have any badass pictures of Ben? Because between Alex’s black eye and Amelia’s scar, you can set up a series of photos that make your kids look like they can take on anyone!

  • lola says:

    Yikes! Poor little dude. I can’t bring myself to post a photo of the boy’s Frankenstein thumb. Hell, maybe I will…

  • Meghan says:

    Poor kido, Hope he feels better soon:(

  • Coco says:

    Poor little sweetie.

    I heard ice cream makes everything better. For you, not really Alex, although it couldn’t hurt him either.

  • Miss Grace says:

    He looks pretty badass though!

  • Betts says:

    Poor sweet guy. The funny thing is that it looks like he swigging from a beer bottle in the photo.

  • Jenn says:

    Aaah shit. My niece had that not long ago. Poor little man.

  • ava says:

    ohh freak..that is awful..!!! hope alex is fine..
