First Sick Day

I just had my first sick day at home with Cole. He's doing just fine though. Last night we got him all ready for bed and I was walking to the rocking chair to rock him before putting him down, and he just started throwing up. I was shocked, frozen, I didn't know what to do! He threw up about four times and it went all over me, him, the carpet, and our chair and a half & ottoman. I was like uh Tony! He's throwing up! So we spent the next 30 minutes cleaning up the mess including baths for Cole and me. It was a mess! Luckily my Dad (who prepares for everything) got the chair and a half & ottoman treated and warrantied, so it's going to be professionally cleaned in a few days. Good thing because it smells! You never think about getting thrown up on when you think about having a baby, that's for sure!

I'm not sure what caused this last night, but the other baby at Cole's daycare was out yesterday because she threw up on Monday. So it must have been something going around. Our sitter wanted me to keep him at home just to let him rest and recover and make sure he was feeling ok. He had a pretty normal day today and didn't get sick again, thankfully. We are going to be heading back to work and the babysitter's tomorrow. We had a nice little day at home together. We slept in (until 7, but that's better than 5), took naps, cleaned up the house, and started packing for our trip to Houston on Friday. We also played and hung out...which is always fun!
It was a much needed day of rest and relaxation with the little man at home. :)
