We put the boys in bed with us once to snuggle and now it is their favorite spot in the house. They literally run to our room ALL day wanting up on our bed. So, we now have snuggle time, which sometimes means they are bouncing around while we make sure they don’t fall and hurt themselves.
Well, today it was pretty much an all-day snuggle! Fynn woke up yesterday morning, ate breakfast and then when we were playing got sick. He was sitting in my lap while we were reading a book and he just threw up EVERYWHERE! It wouldn’t stop either. Poor baby was so scared he stood up, making an even bigger mess, and was just sweating and crying. I was stuck trying to figure out what to do first. Fynn wanted me to hold him, Sutton was about to mess with the nastiness on the carpet and YES there was PUKE everywhere! I eventually got Fynn stripped down and grabbed a towel to wipe him off and cover the mess. He just cuddled in the chair with me the rest of the morning. Luckily, Fridays Daddy gets home about 12:30 so he was able to help get everything calmed down.
He went all day without getting sick again and we were sticking with the B.R.A.T. diet. Daddy made them dinner and he gave them a PB&J sandwich and Fynn was shoveling it in his mouth he was SO hungry. Fast forward to this morning. I go up to get them out of their cribs and I find RED throw up ALL OVER Fynn’s crib. AWESOME. We had to strip the bed, sanitize in the washer and get everything cleaned up. Each boy sleeps with a blanket, a small soft/silky blanket, a stuffed animal AND a musical elephant. So, I got to clean A LOT of stuff! After he had some toast and banana we snuggled in bed all morning. They took a great nap and then we snuggled some more. He hasn’t gotten sick again so we didn’t give Fynn anything except the B.R.A.T. diet for dinner.
Praying Sutton doesn’t start puking soon and praying we wake tomorrow with TWO happy, healthy boys.
We made it almost 19 months without any illness like this so I have to say I’m lucky but MAN OH MAN does it rip your heart out to see your BABY like that! I reached a WHOLE new level of motherhood yesterday.
But, sick or no sick, we love our BEDTIME SNUGGLES!!!
Until next post…
