The boys, like their mama, are not the throwing up type (I go 10 to 15 years between throwing up). Even as babies they would rarely spit up, I'd strangely look at people who wanted to hold my babies and would request a burp cloth to put over their shoulders. Why? I now know how common it is in most babies. So this is a highly unusual thing for us to deal with!
Eli barfed a couple more times later that day but other than not having much of an appetite he seemed happy. That day he relished in the fact that he was the only one who could drink juice and he'd point it out to his brothers every chance he got (had to re-hydrate him after all that barfing). Little did he know it would be short lived. The next day all was well and we thought it was over...
It was Friday and Phil would be picking up our brand new refrigerator, yay! Long story short, earlier in the week Phil found out that one of the contractors that his company works for accidentally ordered the wrong type of refrigerator for a new condo development and they were selling them off for 60% less than they retail for! I told Phil to jump on that amazing deal because our fridge is too small, the shelving is half broken and the motor makes a funny noise every couple of months. So while Phil was gone Thomas started up and it was not pretty because I spent the next 2 hours cleaning up several messes. A little later, thankfully after Phil got home, Caleb started up as well. At one point Caleb threw up and some of it managed to fall into our silverware drawer, gross! Then some onto Eli's face and onto our chopped up avocados we'd be having for dinner! But that's not the worse of it, Thomas spent the next 4 hours on the couch throwing up into a trash can every 5 minutes, at this point of course not much was coming out. And this whole time I spent wondering if it would ever stop, he can't possibly keep this up all night, can he? I got visions of him at the hospital hooked up to an IV getting fluids for dehydration. Thankfully he finally fell asleep at about 11pm and didn't wake up till 8am the next day!
|This is not from this weekend but that's pretty much how Thomas and Caleb looked on Friday : (|
|This is the kitchen nook before Ikea only we had just cleaned off the table so imagine it piled to the top with junk!|
|Weekend excitement at Ikea! YAY!|
|Kitchen nook transformed!!! |
Look at that stainless steel beauty!
(I actually wanted a black fridge but that was all they had)
|The boys were in serious need of extra bathing later that Monday|
|The backlog of the boys cereal of choice, not about to give them poop inducing mini wheat's, no matter how much they ask for them!|
|My poor babies somehow manage to stay happy through this all : )|
