All better
Things are back to normal & A-OK again. Sort of. Logan's projectiles ala The Exorcist only lasted a few short hours on Monday. It was, fortunately, a 24 hour episode (or really, a 3 hour episode). Tuesday, he was still sick, but just slept All. Day. Long. Wednesday, same thing. Today being Thursday, he's back to his rambunctious toddler self, temper tantrums & all. Lovely.

The only thing is that his appetite is lacking. A lot. The kid is hardly eating. I was able to get a good amount of oatmeal, yogurt & blueberries in him this morning (about his usual serving size), but that was about it. A little milk here & there, a couple of bites of a cheese quesadilla, animal crackers (maybe?) & then a whole avocado for dinner (that was it! What kind of dinner is that?!). The good thing is that he has been well hydrated. Camel boy is ready for an excursion across the Sahara.

I worked out with my photographer friend this afternoon & brought Logan to the gym to hang out in the childcare there. He had a great time & was full of energy. Even though he's not eating as much as he used to (yet), he seems to be feeling a million times better. I think we'll even go out for the picnic with friends tomorrow (& I'll be sure to take A LOT of pictures).

On a side note: how convenient & oh, so comfortable for that he's over his stomach bug, he has some teeth trying to come through. I was brushing his teeth & noticed a couple of swollen spots on his gums (upper molars, maybe?). Then as I was getting him dressed for bed, he had his fingers knuckle deep in both ears. Like he didn't want to hear me sing "Twinkle, twinkle little star", but I know he did because he clapped afterward. So it wasn't that bad that he had to plug his ears.

Oh, so glad to hear he's doing so well now! :D

Those teeth eh? Kira's top right incisor has been threatening to come down for the last 2 weeks, and she's constantly jamming her fingers into her ears and now into the space between her other teeth. :\
