Puking Is Scary!!!

Parker had his first REAL puke tonight and it was pretty nasty. He woke up, uncharacteristically, around 7:30 pm sort of moaning and crying so we went up to see what was wrong. It didn't sound like his normal cries or noises. When April picked him up and rocked him for a few seconds, he threw up a bucket of meat onto her robe and himself, which made him pretty scared. We dumped the pukey clothes into the bath tub and washed him off with warm wash clothes and soothed him the best we could, but it was pretty gross. It was like grown man puke. Like, as if your uncle came over and ate some bad stew, and then just blew chunks all over your living room... that's what this was. And the smell was terrible. Hopefully his tummy feels better and he can sleep through the night!

Maybe that's why he was sleeping the night before. Perhaps he wasn't feeling well.

aww poor baby... although I must admit that was the first time I've ever laughed out loud at the description of vomit...

Hope he's feeling better soon.

Anonymous: Maybe! He was super sleepy the day before, but I have a feeling his puke-attack had more to do with what he ate for dinner that night.

Lissa: He's feeling much better now! Back to normal, which is good, because puke is bad.
