Stomach bug.

Saturday night the wife and I headed out for dinner for a friends birthday. N's grandparents came to watch him and he had a good time with them. He loves his grandparents, and absolutely adores his Pop. They are such great buddies and as soon as he sees his Pop he reaches for him. We had a good night but both admitted on the way home that we missed our baby and are happy that we don't go out that much and spend lots of time as a family of 3.
When we got home N was fast asleep and his Gram told us that he'd refused his milk before bed. Neither of us were that bothered as he has started to take less and less of that bottle and we knew he'd let us know when he was hungry. He slept thru to 7.30 and drank his morning bottle. That morning he was a little cranky and we thought that he's 6th tooth may be bothering him and put him down for his morning nap. He got up and ate lunch and I headed off to work. Then at 5 J called to say that he'd thrown up, which was followed by an explosive diaper.
That was just the start....he threw up multiple times that night and gave us many yucky diapers. Just when I think he's starting to get over it he throws up again. We took him into the Dr's on Monday but were not surprised to hear that it's just a bug that needs to run it's course. Yesterday he was taking milk but not food, but he threw up again at 11.30 last night, so we started again with a small milk feed this morning.
It's sad to see him feeling so bad. He just wants to be held and often falls asleep on one of us. He'll occasionally perk up for a little while and walk around the house a couple of times, before crashing again. He's been sleeping in bed with me, which is a first as he's never been a good co-sleeper and it usually resulted in none of us getting any sleep. I'm hoping that'll he'll transition back to his crib without too many problems once he's feeling better. He went down for a nap in his crib without any problems this morning, leaving me free to tackle some laundry, bake some brownie (for energy :-D) and blog!
