First time for everything

Last night the Orclette wanted grapes. I gave her grapes. Then I noticed the white fuzzy clump of grapes in the middle of the batch I had given her. I figured the ones I gave her were fine, didn't worry overmuch about it.

Then she threw up. First time.

Huge mess over everything. We cleaned up, put a towel under her, tried to go back to sleep. 15 minutes later she threw up again. We removed the towel, put a clean one under. She refused all liquids. This cycle happened 3 times. By the end of it we had run out of towels. In-between throwing up she appeared fine and alert (which is why we didn't run her to the ER). Finally we decided to just stay up with her for awhile since falling asleep seemed to trigger the throw-ups. Put in the movie Tomb Raider, 30 minutes in she had fallen asleep on her daddy's chest. We decided it was safe to fall asleep. And it was ... although apparently she had stuff still to come out but it came out the other way. Anyway, she woke up this morning bright eyed and bushy-tailed. Can't say the same for her parents.

Now to do the laundry. /shudder

Luckily we are still in the diaper stage here and our boy hasn't had the wonderful experience of throwing up yet -baby puke not counted-. That is not a time I look forward to. Glad the little one is doing better though.

Oh, the fuzzy ones are for petting, not eating! Did Orclette at least get to pet the soft fuzzy grapes?

Niiiiiiice, grape....niiiiiiiiiice grapy grape grape...

We had my son doing that a month or so back. He was fine all day (although he had a bit of cough), then he'd lie down and go to sleep, and within an hour he'd throw up, once, then be fine for the rest of the night. He did that 3 nights in a row so we took him to his Kiddie Doc on the third day. She said it was the cough making him sick and to just give him some Kid's Tylenol, and after that he was good, but man, that laundry was not a pleasant load.
