Baby puke is not as bad as I thought it would be

Tuesday, January 27th, 2009

Our poor little girl was up most of Sunday night, getting sick all over her pajamas, sheets, teddy, and blanket. We don’t know what caused it, but she could not keep anything down. Even after she got some sleep, she still couldn’t keep down any fluids or food. She couldn’t even keep down water or Pedialyte.

Even though we’ve never given her soda before, warm, flat Coke was the only thing that would calm her stomach. I gave it to her with a spoon, because I knew she would drink it too fast if I gave her a cup. This totally worked, and I was able to get her to keep down two saltines, some coke, and a little Pedialyte.

So, even though I still don’t want to give her soda (so she won’t become a Coca-Cola addict like her mom), I have decided that my parents were right. The best thing for a kid who is throwing up is a warm, flat, Coca-Cola. Thanks mom and dad!

She’s now doing much better. She hasn’t thrown up since before we went to the doctor yesterday afternoon, and she’s kind of getting her appetite back. I’m pretty relieved, because even though the actual puke didn’t gross me out as much as I thought it would, I felt so bad for my little girl. She would get sick, then she wanted to jump and play, then she’d get sick again. She seemed so confused. I tried not to let her play and run around, but keeping a 20 month old still is something that is easier said than done.

So, yay Maggie for beating that mean little bug :)

Maggie’s First Real Snow

Thursday, January 22nd, 2009

On Tuesday, Tyler was off work, and he, Maggie, and I watched the inauguration and waited for the snow to stick. It never really did, and was gone by early afternoon, but I guess it counts as Maggie’s first snow.

I just had to post these…I can’t believe how much she has changed in just one year!

Well, I finally updated the blog software, so I’m now able to post again. I am such a slacker.

I’m really going to start updating this more regularly again, now that its fixed.

I don’t think I’m going to do a catch up post, because that will seem daunting and I’ll put it off and then never start posting her again. So, I’m just going to say that the past few months have been crazy, but good, and we’re all doing well.

So, here are some cute pics from Halloween that I absolutely love. Maggie was a Fairy Princess :)
