HI gals,

Max was feeling better the next day, then I started feeling queasy and the next thing you know, Scarlet is throwing up. So it got us, too. Just when I was getting caught up on laundry. It was awful and my back hurts from laying on the couch recovering all day yesterday, but we are all better now, thank goodness. Must have been just a 12 hour throw up marathon thing. Yuck.

Krismarie - hope you are all better soon. I was thinking it was the traveling, too. That's about the only time any of us gets a cold, is after plane travel. Glad the bm is working, that is amazing.

While dh was painting it this fall, you should've seen people's reaction, we got so many comments, from "what the hell?" to "love it!". Since it's finished, we've only had positive comments. And I eavesdrop, so I would've heard the bad comments too

lol all this talk about breastmilk for sinuses and my constant sniffling is making me think I might benefit from a little of my own magic.

G is napping, I'm supposed to be taking down our Christmas tree since Christmas ended yesterday, but instead I am wasting time on the computer...yee!

Me too - I wouldn't really miss winter if we never had it (even though doudat's snowy house is beautiful). Yes we should get together, we keep saying that but we really should!

I survived my 5 days home without DH who was in Florida running the Disney Marathon! I know, I really shouldn't say that because I know many of you do that day in and day out. The house isn't as he would want it. I did get all of the laundry done and folded, but the living room toys aren't picked up. And I had to leave the dishes. Last night at 5:30, Claire started coughing and was having an asthma attack. She loves to sit on the counter while I make supper. She sometimes stirs, but most of the time just sits there and talks. I hate to ban her from the kitchen as it seems cruel to exclude her. Last night I was making lasagne so I don't know if some "dust" from the cheese was in the air that she inhaled or what triggered it. Her asthma doc says foods cause eczema, not asthma. She was wheezing so she had a couple of nebs last night, but didn't rewheeze so her doc said no steroids for now. She's resting now, but we'll do a couple of nebs today too. I'm just glad I only work a half day today so that I can come home and check on her.

I'm listening to Middlesex on CD's while commuting. It is hilarious. I might have to get the CD's to the Virgin Suicides by the same author.

Been semi busy the past few days, and been trying to cut back on computer time a bit too. We went to a friend's house on Saturday for a combined surprise baby shower game day. It was fun and Desmond has fun too. Sunday we went and got his 9 month pictures, I'll try to post them later, he is so cute and big! Yesterday DH was home for a doctor's appointment and I got my temporary crown, so now my tooth is a temporary queen of the universe.

Other then that it has been pretty calm around here, Desmond did sleep for 5 hours straight on Sunday night which was so nice, didn't do it last night though sigh.

Oh I got to use my gift from the exchange because AF arrived right on time Sunday, they work nicely, though I only have enough for one day, so I'll wash them tonight with diapers and get to use them again tomorrow.

: Well, I feel for the mamas dealing with sick kiddos...

Johnny has been throwing up everything for the past 24hrs..though I fed him BM for 5mins 45mins ago and he has kept it down so far (this is a record as of yet) so maybe we are on the road to recovery. We've tried everything from BM to water to pedialyte just trying to hydrate him...maybe it's just because he is my first child but I just felt so sad watching him today - he was just limp when I was changing him and had this lost look in his eyes...he seemed a little more alert and energetic tonight though - not me though!!! I need some SERIOUS sleep and have TONSSSSSSSSSS of laundry to catch up on, I was actually going to do sposies today but the pediatrician recommended cloth so we could count wet dipes. Oh and he lost 15oz since Friday unless the pedi's scale is WAY off from the LC's scale..I'm going convincing myself the scales are off - I am NOT going to be a paranoid mama lol, I was SOOO embarrassed even to go in today, I had planned just to call for advice but they suggested we come in so we did (that was mainly my DH worrying).

hope he is feeling better! it doesn't take much to keep them hydrated (like a teaspoon every half-hour)...sounds like he catching up on hydration after the last nursing since he kept it down. it's not just because he's your first, it's always sad to see them sick. hope tonight is much better.

Thanks! As her birthday presant to me, Evangeline slept until 6 am! Thanks honey!
Chad got me a beautiful bracelet with white, pink and red pearls and small garnets-my birthstone, of course. It's beautiful. I picked it out.

Kris- how's your family? Did you ever get DS resolved? I pm'd a mod.

LilMomma-how's Johnny- When Eva was throwing up she was exactly the same way. Rest assured- he's probably ok, but hang in there! I'm sure you're tired and behind, hope you're not sick too!

Happy Birthday, Queen!

LilMomma, hope Johnny is better today, it is just awful seeing your babe sick. And Max was the same way, just out of it, we were very worried. He says he doesn't even remember it, thank goodness.

Scarlet got sick again last night, just once, but still, more laundry. It's taking us all a while to get back to normal.

Happy bday Queen

Thanks for the well-wishes! Johnny threw up most of last night also and this morning refused anything in his mouth (breast, bottle, cup, even toothbrush) for several hours - until DH spied him shoving nachos that were left on the table (from YESTERDAY - with SOUR CREAM on them) into his mouth... He has kept that down for about 4-5hrs so I think he is totally better
