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
