Exorcist Baby

I suppose with babies there are good firsts and bad firsts. Unfortunately, Ryan had his first little stomach bug this weekend. I was holding him while he jumped up and down on my knees and then out of nowhere he projectile vomited all over me. I just sat there in shock, longer enough for the second wave to come around and got it again. I was covered! Luckily, he didn’t seem to be too bothered by the whole thing. He even smiled at me afterward. We both had to go take baths – luckily daddy got home from work just in time to help!

At first I thought it was just a fluke – maybe too much air or something (he has just started to hold his bottle all on his own consistently and sometimes he doesn’t get it up high enough), but a little later when we gave him some water he threw that up to. He couldn’t keep anything down over night except small sips of pedialyte, so I had to take him in to the doctor’s office for their weekend sick hours. The place was packed! I guess something is going around.

As you might remember, we took Ryan to visit his school on Thursday and Friday for a couple of hours each day so he could meet the teachers and other kids. I expected that he would get sick a bunch in the beginning, but I didn’t think it would be that fast! I also was expecting a cold and cough – not vomit and diarrhea! Oh well. You take the good, you take the bad…

On a happier note, Ry turned 7 months old this week. And, Chuck and I celebrated our 4th wedding anniversary. I don’t know if you ever read this, but thanks for the wedding cake, dad!

Ryan also crawls for real now – not just the belly crawl. He mastered that on Thursday, January 27th. Go Rybear!
