My Sweet Little Baby

If any one hasn't heard yet, my poor baby boy was back in the hospital this past Thursday for Rota Virus. He was hospitalized just four and half months ago for the same thing! My little guy just can't seem to catch a break!

He woke up on Tuesday morning throwing up and having LOTS of yucky diapers and so Matt and I both agreed that we wouldn't wait this time like we did last time. We took him straight to the doctor and he said we just need to give him some time to see if he would get over it.

Well, he didn't. It just got worse. So, they put him in Saint Mary's for about 3 days to hydrate him with IV fluids. It is amazing how quickly that helps to get him better.

We got home on Saturday afternoon, and he is doing better. He lost about four or five pounds (better than last time! He lost seven!) but he is starting to get his appetite back and is drinking much better.

I don't understand this! I hate seeing my poor little guy so sick when there is nothing that I can do for him! It just breaks my heart! The doctor said that after two or three times of children getting Rota Virus, their body starts to build up an immunity to it! I sure hope so! I will keep my fingers crossed!

My son steals food!

Today, while all the babies were sleeping (I now watch 2 little babies during the day....Lots of work but very fun!) including my son, I decided that I would treat myself to a yummy mint chocolate drumstick. They are my weakness. I love them! So, of course, right when I open the package and take my first lick, I hear Jonah say over the baby monitor, "Mommy! All done! Get out!" UGH! Right at my first moments peace! So, without thinking about it I set my ice cream on a paper towel on the table and go and get Jonah out of bed. I changed his diaper and let him run free, and within the 15 seconds that it took him to run from his room out to the living room, he got onto the couch, crawled over to the table, and had chocolate ALL OVER his face!

I walked over to him and said, "You took my ice cream! Can mommy have a bite?" He smiled and said "No! Yummy!"

He sat there and ate the WHOLE CONE! That's what I get though for leaving my ice cream out for little fingers!
