Sweet, sick baby

Baby Plum had his first stomach bug last night. He's a little over 2 years old. We expected him to get one a whole lot earlier, thanks to an older brother in school and that penchant for sucking his thumb.

He woke up sick, and we cleaned him up and brought him out to the playroom with us. He played and smiled, and then got sick. Played, smiled, got sick. We thought it was crazy that he wasn't lethargic. Then, it caught up with him. Poor little guy.

The first stage finally stopped around 2 this morning, and I was able to put him back in his bed.

He had other tummy troubles for most of the day today, but they didn't seem to bother him. He would drink some, but I wasn't able to get him to eat until late this afternoon.

The oddest thing? So far, Little Elvis is fine. I keep asking him how he feels. He'll say fine, and then ask if I'm happy. Silly boy. They are making gingerbreadmen in his class tomorrow, so I hope he stays fine. He's been looking forward to this for at least a week.

Poor guy :( I hope it's a quick bug that isn't passed around

The bad park is he is sick and has to go through this. The good part is he is not whining and perhaps understands it is temporary. The smiles in the middle of this go a long way to make Mom feel better too.

Poor kid. There's nothing like watching your kid go through that kind sickness to bring out my (often hidden) extremely nurturing side.

Hope he rebounds quickly!
