After a great Thanksgiving day and a partial day of shopping with Mommy and Noni, my poor Amelia came down with the stomach bug. She puked once on Friday and has had diarrhea ever since Friday. Poor thing, it's miserable!! She still acts pretty happy, eats fine, sleeps good, plays some, but she is a little more clingy and cuddly than normal (I'm not complaining about this one!) but we are having to change and wash her clothes several times a day, that's definitely no fun! Then Sunday, Kenny and I got to do something for the first time in our 10 years of marriage.... we were sick at the same time. Of course, this had to happen after we had 2 little girls and had to try and take care of them in the midst of running to the bathroom. Yes, we as well as my mom came down with the bug too. Thankfully, Isabella hasn't gotten sick yet. And thankfully my dad wasn't sick either because he ran around for all of us. I did take Amelia to the dr today because I was a little worried about her losing weight, 8 month olds don't have much weight to lose so any scares me, and I wanted to make sure I was doing everything to keep her from getting dehydrated, etc. The doctor did say she had lost weight, but that everything else looked Ok so far. I have to say that I am very thankful for our pediatrician -- we always see the same dr and nurse when we go in and they always seem to know my girls (I'm sure they can't remember everyone perfectly, but they seem like they do). I'm constantly telling Kenny that anytime I go in or talk to them they are such "cheerleaders", like "You're really doing a good job ...." I love that!! Anyway, hopefully my sweet Amelia will get better soon and Isabella will still stay healthy. Isabella has never had anything more than a little cold, so I'm not sure how she would handle being sick. I hope everyone else out there stays healthy, this bug seems to be going around quite a bit!
