Doing a bit better...

Well...it seems we're all on the rebound from this bug! We're not 100%, but even 10% would be better than Thursday night!!

I managed to keep down lots of water, 7up, Gatorade, 2 banana Popsicles, a sleeve (with the help of Zach and Keaton!) of Saltines and 2 bowls of chicken noodle soup! Yay!!!

Keaton is loving his pedialyte. He even joined us in crackers and soup for dinner!

Zach managed to keep down some crackers, the soup and a Popsicle as well!

Keaton's schedule got a little messed up tonight. We had planned a bath for 630pm and he got really snuggly around 6. We sat down on the couch, next thing I know, it's 640 and Zach is staring at us - we were both knocked out! Keaton was NOT thrilled about his rude awakening to a bath and didn't want to go to sleep after that.

We eventually brought him downstairs and the goal was for him to play, but he was just too tired to do that. So I got his 2nd wind going by making funny faces and tickling him and then he finally drifted off to sleep.

He slept GREAT last night (probably because he wasn't sleeping in our bed waking me up every few minutes!) and so hopefully after our rough start to the night, he'll do the same tonight.

I got all our gross laundry done today...hopefully between tomorrow and Monday, I can get Keaton's toys cleaned up and the rest of the house germ-free and we will be DONE with this bug/flu/nastiness!!!

Bad mommy letting Keaton eat off the floor (it's OK, I JUST cleaned it with my new toy - see below!)

Keaton's "mmmmm" face :) yummy noodles and crackers!

New toy!!!! Keaton has suddenly started to HATE our big vacuum and I just couldn't lug it around and use it everyday. We got this at Target and I adore it! Even better, Keaton loves it too!

This was the attempt at going back to sleep...yeh, he looks wide awake doesn't he ;-) Ok...really it breaks my heart to see him so pitiful!

I'm glad you're feeling better....it really does break your heart when your little one is sick and you don't know what to do and he can't tell you what to do to make him feel better.
