On Labor Day night, late, Kivrin started throwing up.

Here are some excerpts from messages to our families:

Tuesday, September 8, 2009 2:13 AM Kivrin seems to have a sixth sense when she has a doctor’s appointment scheduled– she’s supposed to get her 1 year old shots tuesday morning and instead has spent the last two hours throwing up the contents of her stomach. When she finished puking, she was wide awake at 1 am and ready to play! She is finally back asleep now and hopefully she is feeling better.we will keep you posted about her progress tomorrow!
Okay, I better try to get some sleep!
Love, Lissa

Probably just a virus, still got her checkup and shots, no milk or nursing for 24 hours so I’m pumping (darn it, hoped I was done with that!).
She weighed 21 pounds and that was 50th percentile. She didn’t cooperate on the height but was about 29 inches, which was 35-40th percentile. We got some pedialyte and are all taking it easy (I.e. taking turns doing laundry and holding the snuggly tired fussy baby) today at home.

It turned out Kivrin hated pedialyte in every form (frozen, mixed with juice, melted, on a spoon, through a straw). So we spent the rest of the week trying to convince Kivrin to take sips of water.

just playing not drinking 
Don’t worry, she’s just playing, not drinking. 😦 She likes to hold all of the cups, but could care less that they contain lovely hydrating liquids…

a small success in drinking a sip of water while on a walk.

We are at the zoo anyway in spare clothes but my carseat is a mess. Maybe you come here at 10:30?

After worlds biggest puking incident in the car seat first thing this morning, which led to Dan leaving work at 10:30 am to pick up the baby because my car was gross and me taking my boss up on his offer to let me stay home sick, we basically all had a great day of playing hooky and are in good shape for going “back to normal” tomorrow (we hope)

It is surprisingly hard to take good photos of people on a swing…

I have the pic of the carseat incident that I sent Dan but I refrained from sending it to anyone else. It was classic “I feel better, I’m hungry, eat too much stomach overload” apparently. Only took about an hour to clean up!

Once the carseat was clean again, Kivrin was thrilled to try it out!

After many many loads of laundry and cleaning up messes all week, on Friday Kivrin was finally back at school and we were all back at work!
