bit by the bug

it's NOT been a fun last few days. we all know that olivia was sick last week and we had to cancel our weekend plans. saturday went fine. stayed home all day and no major mishaps; just pretty boring! i had a not so friendly visit EARLY sunday morning from the stomach virus. yes, that's right, i got bit by the bug. lovely. how am i going to take care of my child and me??? at 5:30 am i called rett to come get her. (i called early b/c i needed someone here when she woke up.) you're not going to believe it. he had been bitten too. yes, he also had been up most of the night throwing up. great. what to do now? i waited until about 7 and called my mom. olivia was wide awake by 7:30 and i was NOT feeling well. i got up and gave her a bottle and then put her on the floor to hopefully not kill herself. by 9:15 she was acting pretty tired so i put her down for a nap (she hasn't taken a morning nap in WEEKS!) God smiled on me and she took a 3 hour nap!! she was still asleep when my mom got here and i went to bed and let olivia and her gg have full reign over the house. i got up this morning and gave o her bottle and then waited for rett to get here to dress her and fix her bottles for daycare. i just couldn't muster the strength to even do that. i was back in bed before he even closed the door behind him. honestly, i didn't start to feel "right" until about 5:30 this evening. i'm still scared to eat anything. so, i don't have many pics to post but here are some cute ones from before the bug bit me!
i stayed home with o on thursday b/c she was running fever. she still eats like a champ even when she's sick! the doc even commented on her "yellow" hands and nose. she loves carrots!

good morning - saturday. i kid you not. this is what she looked like sat morning. it's never been this bad!

i promise my next post will be positive and uplifting!
