Another tooth!!

Clear as day! And I didn't even know it... :-( I suppose we have been so busy with being sick the past week that I didn't have any idea that Christian cut another tooth. Now every time he smiles I see it. :-) It's on the bottom to the (his) left of the other two. If this kid keeps getting them on the bottom he will have one goofy smile.

So hooray for our big boy! I'll have to try and get a picture of it one of these days.

What a week!!!

Well, I think the flu has finally left the Keefer house!! Sunday morning I woke up quite nauseated. I thought I was pregnant!! But as soon as Christian vomited and had diarrhea I knew that something was up. If Sunday morning was an indicator of how things were going to go I should have called for backup! By Sunday night Christian had about 45 baths. The poor kid was spewing from both ends :-( Thankfully I just felt nauseous all day and I was able to take care of Christian. Come Monday I was feeling better but poor Christian was having a hard time. By Tuesday morning Matt was sick and couldn't stay out of the bathroom for more than an hour!

Christian was put on a BRAT diet - bananas, rice cereal, applesauce and toast. He did well on it after he was actually able to keep food down. For a while he wasn't even able to keep formula or Pedialyte in him. But Wednesday rolled around and he was able to eat like a champ while still having quite a bit of diarrhea. Now this morning (friday) he hasn't had any diarrhea yet- knock on wood - and I hope it stays that way.

AH! What a week! My poor babies were sick and I had to take care of them both. Hopefully this weekend will be a nice one and we can enjoy ourselves without getting sick again. It wasn't too bad but definitely a crash course in Parenthood! Never again do I want to clean up that much vomit or diarrhea again. But I know that that won't be the case....

Sorry this was such a gruesome update. It was sort of rushed because I'm trying to keep a baby happy while disinfecting my house! haha. Now it's nap time!
