Hello, there.


Well, hello there, Mr. Sun. This is actually a picture I took for my photography class during the 2 hours the sun has been out this past weekend. It's been way blah-gloom-doom weather wise. So, here's to more sun.

This morning was a parenting first. A little back story- this week Declan has been screaming throughout the night. Yesterday morning (after Declan was up the majority of the night) I decided to call his pedi so we can get his ears checked. An appointment was made for that afternoon. In an unfortunate twist, he started throwing up and having diarrhea. My poor little muchkin. He was given a strong antibiotic shot for his badly infected ear and we were given the crackers/pedia.lite instructions for the stomach bug. In the evening he seemed tired but like he was feeling better. He slept great. Thank goodness.

Fast forward to this morning. I peeked in the nursery before work and my husband was sitting in the rocker with Declan. He was concerned because he couldn't really wake him up. In comes crazy mom...turning on bright lights, taking temperature, freaking out. The pedi said to get him in the car and get him there immediately. Turns out that Declan's blood sugar was way too low. Very VERY scary morning.

Tonight, he's holding down food. He's drinking Pedia.lite like it's going out of style and running around screaming and smiling like the little crazy man he is. We are so very thankful he's on the mend and hope tomorrow renders the same. Now, I'm off to pray that the open mouth kisses tonight don't send me hanging over the toilet soon. Ha! Just kidding. Happy to kiss my baby all day every day. (Ask my husband- the snot kisses don't even get turned away!)

Now, if we can just get some sunshine (and warmer weather), that would be grand.

Oh so scary, WAY too scary!! I'm so glad he's OK and you guys got him to the doctor in a reasonable amount of time. So freaky how they can go from bad to worse like that when they are seemingly fine.

KWYM about the kisses, they are THE BEST...even if they are gross! :)

Hugs,

Melba

God forbid that ever happens again. Geesh. But if it does, put a little Karo Syrup on his gums. Well, that's what we do in hypoglycemic animals...

I agree our babes seriously look alike. So darn crazy. If you want to make them look even more like twins, I got G's coat online at Gap for under 20$ after discounts and free shipping (sized to fit him in the fall/winter of 2010. And it is insulated too). So now you know all of my secrets!

Obviously I mean to use the Karo on your way to the Dr. In case there was any confusion...

Oh how scary! I'm glad to read that he's doing better now. Poor little guy!

I hope you get some sunshine soon, and warmer weather. No, really, I hope you do since I will be leaving sunny Arizona next Saturday morning for frigid Omaha.
