sicky baby

Yesterday after his nap, Simon wasn't a happy boy. He seemed tired still, so I held him and tried to get him back to sleep, but it wasn't happening. I gave him his afternoon bottle of milk, and that seemed to help him. I was reading on the couch while he played in his play room. Then he started crying, so I got up (then bent down) to give him a hug. And he threw up all over my shoulder, himself, and the carpet.

I cleaned us up a bit, stuck him in his crib, then went downstairs to clean the vomit off the carpet and call Papa to come home. Luckily it was only a little bit before 5 p.m., so Jamund could leave promptly.

We tried feeding Simon a little dinner, and he seemed happy about it... until he threw up again. It didn't seem like he had a great night's sleep either, poor little man. At breakfast,we gave him some white toast with butter and cinnamon/sugar, some saltines, some applesauce, and his milk. He threw up a little bit again.

We cuddled most of the morning in his chair, and he took two little naps today. No more vomiting but diarrhea... Oh man. Babies having the flu is gross. And smelly.

Hopefully he's getting better. I gave him some warm water with honey and lemon in it a bit ago and that seemed to make him happy. We plan to drive down to Grandma and Grandpa's tomorrow morning... Hopefully that will be a success?

Though it's been kind of nice to have a slower day and cuddles, here's hoping our little man is on the mend!
