Sick baby

Poor little Natalie hasn't been feeling too good. She's been acting funny since Wednesday - that's when she stopped taking her bottles. Thursday she refused to eat most things. She had diarrhea and wasn't herself so we took her to the doctor. He said she just had a cold virus. That, and she's got a TON of teeth coming in and that causes a lot of stress on their little bodies. Then Thursday night she started throwing up. I now understand the difference between spitting up and throwing up. BIG DIFFERENCE. She continued to have diarrhea and threw up again in the middle of the night and then again in the morning. It was a little scary because the doctor said if she threw up again there would be a chance of having to go to the hospital to get put on IV fluids. Luckily she didn't throw up again after that and we gave her pedialyte for the rest of the day.

She seems to be doing better, but she's sleeping a TON. She's also not eating very much of her bottles, but I think a lot of that has to do with the teething. I hope she feels better - I worry about her so much!

So, in the meantime, I caught up on some digi-scrapping. I just don't have much time to work on pages right now. I was supposed to have a bunch of this done to give out for Christmas presents...oops. Maybe next year.
