The pestulence continues...

This morning Erik and Bryn both woke up with the same flu the rest of us having been experiencing for the past week. Erik's symptoms are hot flushes and a snotty nose (he's currently asleep on the couch next to me). Bryn, on the other hand, has had a fever, and projectile vomiting... As you can see, Bryn has also spent much of the morning dozing in and out... Right now, he is playing on the floor and seems quite chipper. He's been cycling between seeming quite sick and seeming ok like this all morning...

He's been having lots of booby, which is good, despite my almost phobic fear of vomit, LOL! I've never had a towel too far away from me this morning, just in case, but he seems ok atm. At least he is still able to smile - it always amazes me that my kids can smile even when they're obviously sick, they have such upbeat personalities!!!

All the same, there is only so much a sick baby will put up with having his photo taken! He looks so much like my dad in this photo!!!

One good thing about all this... I've FINALLY convinced Dave to get a mobile phone for himself! He had to go to the convention this morning, but right on cue, just as Dave was about to step out, Bryn vomited everywhere, and Dave being the nursemaid he is was horribly torn because he HAD to go, but he didn't want to leave me (who is still sick myself) with three sick kids, especially because this is Bryn's first big illness... The battery on my mobile was dead, so he couldn't take that, and there's no other way for me to contact him... So, FINALLY he can see why he needs his own mobile, because had he left even a couple of minutes earlier he wouldn't even have known Bryn was that sick, and there would have been no way for me to let him know...

Could Bryn be any more beautiful?

Sorry to hear you are all so unwell :( Really sucks, but I guess at least with them all out for the count they won't be running around as much!
