We’re battling our first baby stomach virus up in here.
Pray for us, won’t you?
It all began when Garr & I decided it’d be nice to go out to brunch to celebrate our 7th anniversary.
That was our first mistake. How quickly we forgot we can’t have nice things or nice, pleasant times out in public with an 11 month old. About 90 seconds into our food coming out, Lou tosses her cookies alllll onto her cheese quesadilla. The very quesadilla Garr was looking forward to eating most of after she got done picking at it. But alas. Poor baby has never really been sick before, thank you, Jesus. So this is major unchartered territory for us. We both just kind of sat there stunned for a second like, “Did this really happen?” before we started frantically cleaning her up & trying to hide the fact she puked everywhere. She felt great afterwards, though, and proceeded to throw Cheerios at anyone who looked her way!
I really shouldn’t blog about vomit before sharing a recipe with you guys.
