There has been a whole lot of this in our house for the past 24 hours.

Poor Jacob definitely got the worst of the bug. He threw up every 20-30 minutes from 5 pm on Sunday until 5 am on Monday. Well, after the first hour or so there wasn't anything left in his stomach to bring up so he just dry heaved all night. His poor little body is still so exhausted. But he's managed a cracker and a half this afternoon and then slept for several hours, so I have high hopes that the worst has passed. I hope at the very least we will all be able to sleep through the night.

The rest of us were able to rest and recuperate today. Caitlin came down and spent the day helping me so Brian could sleep, since he stayed up all night with Jacob and Lila. We had a Jane Austen movie marathon. It was wonderful! We watched Sense and Sensibility, two versions of Mansfield Park and two versions of Northanger Abbey. I know some people (ahem, Josh) just read that and thought, "What torture!"  But for us girls it was just what the doctor ordered. I love that Caitlin loves watching those types of movies with me. It's always so much more fun when you can share something you love with a friend. Plus I love how she starts cursing oh so gentilly and with a British accent after a couple of hours...

And now just for fun.

I took this a couple of days ago. I told Lila to lay down so I could change her diaper. She was being a stinker and refusing to lay in the right direction... so I diapered her head.

So much for teaching her a lesson.

She thought it was hilarious.

Not to many things are worse than having a stomach bug run through the family. Ugh. Hope you're all feeling better.

Oh I hope you guys are over it too. Being sick and taking care of sick kids (or in my case kid) is so draining.
LOVE the diaper!
