My sweet angel baby

I was fighting off a really bad headache after a really fun day, I was moments
from going to sleep...when I heard Judah making noises like he was choking or
coughing or something...I rushed into his nursery and thus began
one of the longest mommy nights I have experienced yet.
I won't bore you with the gory details because they were not pleasant...
but I will share a few photos of the sweetest little face I have ever seen.

I made the executive decision to bring him into bed with me.
Who knew a tiny little man could take up an entire King sized bed.

Before the night was over I had about 2 huge piles of laundry to wash,
we had taken a bath and had both changed our clothes several times.
But I didn't care, I just wanted him to feel better.

I put a plea out on my facebook page for other mommy's to give me advice...I was relieved to
find I was doing some things the way I should, and eternally grateful for the tips
to do other things I hadn't thought of.
It is nice to be a part of a community of moms who care for each other.
I am grateful for my online community of friends.

Eventually Mr. Sweet Face here was able to fall asleep for real, so I moved him back into his
crib for a few hours so that I could also get a little sleep...I have never been able to fully sleep
when he was right by me...and for both our good, I needed to get at
least a couple hours of sleep.

Unfortunately even after a few hours of good sleep and what seemed like a
great morning, we had a repeat episode of the not so fun getting sick
stuff again right after our bath to remove the craziness of the night. Go figure
.
So another load of laundry, more snuggles and lots of TLC is how the day ended.
I am SO thankful that we are still bfeeding...cause that is the only thing that little
man has kept down. And that is how I know he isn't dehydrating and will be okay.
So much peace of mind.

The silver lining of a sick angel baby is the extra snuggles. I cherish those moments.

Praying that tonight is much less eventful.

Poor Judah-Bear. :( He's gorgeous, even when sleeping and sick! I hope he's better soon. There just isn't much you can do when they are sick with a stomach bug. I saw on your FB lots of advice. My. dr's office nurse told me to give Luc NOTHING for 12 hours the last time he had a puking illness. I ignored that advice because I worried about dehydration. Being a mommy is hard, and those nights are never fun. I will pray he is back to his normal self ASAP. And that you all have a better night's rest tonight!

Oh I so know that feeling. You cannot sleep because you want to be sure they are ok. I always being my kids into bed with me when they are vomiting. I can be there the instant they feel sick, and tell them it is okay. One one the hardest parts of being a mom, hands down.
