Feeling good today.
The sun is shining, and it seems that Chris's Cold has not, for me at least, developed into a full-blown (no pun intended) mucus festival.
Chris got up with Gwen this morning so I got to sleep in.
Gwen is sleeping SO well. Maybe it's only because she's a little sick, but my goodness. That child can sleep like a champ when she puts her mind to it!
Also because she's a little sick, she's a little bit more cuddly than normal. On a typical day we are lucky if she will consent to sit still in our arms for a maximum of five seconds - usually right before we put her to bed. The rest of the time it's "Get lost Mom, I've got places to go!" Yesterday she let me cuddle her for a whole minute which in Gwen-time is like an hour. It was so nice!
After a slew of busy weekends, we are planning a relaxing couple of days, with the only two outside commitments being church tomorrow morning and the pickup of a steam cleaner from Chris's parents. (TMI WARNING: BODILY FLUIDS AHEAD.) Why the steam cleaner? Because last night, as I was about to leave for a girls' night out, Gwen vomited all over her pajamas, her father, and her bedroom floor. Not spat up, but vomited. There were chunks of carrot in it. That she had for lunch four hours earlier.
Not sure why that happened, but, um, it sucked. Especially, I imagine, for Chris, who looked like he was wearing a vomit sash. I cleaned up Gwen and changed her pajamas while he changed his clothes and dealt with the carpet. Gwen seemed nonplussed by the whole thing, not crying or upset in the least - and surprisingly, she slept for over eight hours immediately after. We figured she'd be hungry after emptying her stomach, but apparently not.
Anyway, she seems fine today - which is to say she's still a little snot factory, but no signs of vomiting, diarrhea or fever. So *shrug* who knows what that was about?
Hope you're all having a good weekend, one leaning more towards the sunshine-and-sleep combination and away from the baby-vomit scenario.
