Sick Boy

That's right - we've been home almost 5 months and we just experienced our first Sick Baby day (and night). I had the stomach flu yesterday (I never get sick, so being sick twice in one month is really annoying). It was so terrible in the morning that I called Kevin and told him he had to come home. Mr. Wonderful did come home and worked from home so he could take care of the babe all day while I slept the ENTIRE day.

So, last night Kevin was trying to put Micah down to sleep and every time he left the room, Micah began SCReaming. It was terrible. I tried too, but same result. I even freaked out and called one of my BFFs (mom of 4) to ask if there is anything we should be doing. Nope. But she did tell me that since he was being quiet while rocked
, there was a good chance he would fall asleep eventually. He did, so my freaking out was for naught. He slept okay, except for being awake from 3:30 a.m. - 5:00 a.m. Thank goodness I was feeling better by then.

I have no idea why I am documenting this all for you. I guess it is just such a BIG deal when your little one is sick for the first time. It's scary and you feel helpless. I've dreaded him getting sick, but I have to say that we've been extremely lucky that he hasn't been sick until now. And, the good news is that, after a day of moaning and whining and crying, I FINALLY saw a smile from him just before bed tonight. His Dad was being silly and it worked - I really don't think I had seen a smile all day until then!

*Edit: Thursday morning and now Kevin is sick too! :(

Here are a couple of pictures from before the sickness (because you know I love pictures)...

One of his goofy faces.

His whistle-face. He does this and then breathes in and out and actually whistles. It is hilarious. He's a genius.


  1. Poor baby...I am glad to hear he is feeling better. Sicky boys are no fun... Glad you are feeling better too! Love the pictures...of course. He is cute as ever, especially with that cute whistle face.

  2. Bwahaha! I love your little whistler! I have a niece who was a whistler and I havent seen it since...I am glad to see that the whistling has been brought back by your little cutie pie.
