The Name Game

At this moment we're still without a name for the baby who could be arriving at any moment. I thought I'd get the opinion of a true authority on the matter.

The Virus...

There's a good reason this post doesn't have pictures.

Last week was my spring break, which meant project week. I was able to get a surprisingly good amount of things done the first couple days - making our back yard rabbit-proof for our upcoming garden experiment, putting shelves in the garage, shampoo the carpets, and Audra got a good amount of "deep cleaning" done as well.

During this time, Eva had been terribly whiny, much more so than her normal whiny self. Monday afternoon I found out why when she threw up 18 gallons of stuff all over herself, her car seat, and my truck seats. Audra was working so I was left to handle it myself. I told her to calm down as I raced home. The poor little thing was just kind of gasping and holding perfectly still with her arms out in front of her. She was absolutely soaked from head to toe with a week's worth of meals. She threw up several more times the next couple days, usually in her bed in the middle of the night.

Just when we thought all was well, I awoke with that terrible feeling around 2 am early Thursday morning and decided that my body didn't need the dinner I had eaten several hours earlier. My 10+ year long streak of no vomiting had abruptly come to an end. I topped that off with several more episodes throughout the night and the next day.

But wait, there's more. Audra decided to get in on the action Sunday morning while we were visiting my folks in Fort Collins. Thankfully, hers was a bit more minor and she was good to go the next day.

Bottom line, being sick sucks. I would have taken pictures for your enjoyment, but I was busy blowing chunks.
