She's on her third change of clothes and it isn't even 10 am.

I was just reading my sister-in-law's blog last night about how my nephew was throwing up everywhere all day. And I thought to myself how we seem to have been super lucky this year with that kind of sick. Of course, you should never, ever, never think such things, because the next morning your baby will wake up throwing up.

And that is exactly what happened. She's rather stoic about it (I don't think I've ever dealt with the stomach flu with Sophie before), even while her oldest sister was having a freak out session after the first time she threw up (Bria has a horrible terrible phobia of vomit).

Right now she's on the couch watching a movie, with a bowl beside her, although she hasn't once made it all into the bowl. She's not even 2 years old for goodness' sake! So she's already had two baths and 3 changes of clothing and I'm trying to keep a close eye.

I'm also keeping a very close eye on the voting tallies for the pictures. I managed to pull ahead yesterday and stay there, thanks to all of you, but things have proven to change very quickly with this contest. (ETA: I just went to pick up Chloe from preschool and was 40 ahead when I left. I came back and found I was now trailing by 10!) I swear I will have no hair by the time all of this is over.

So, if you haven't yet voted for my photo, please take a minute or two out of your day and go vote! (I made that link super big so you can't possibly miss it!) Mine is the one called Overstuffed with Polka Dots. You can also scroll down a bit in my blog and see's my now sick Sophie wearing my shoes and looking in the mirror.

Please vote! Tell your friends!

  1. So sorry for the sickness. And... I'm still rooting for you, Love.

  2. Just voted - good luck! I was so excited for you to see that you're in the lead.

    I was thinking about starting my own blog, when I clicked over to my blogger profile. I had totally forgotten about starting that weight loss blog 2 years ago! I read your comment - thanks! Anyway, I've updated it, in case your interested!


  3. I'm sorry (and how interesting since we were just talking about Bria's phobia). I hope she gets over it very quickly.

  4. Oh, yuck lara! I wonder if they got it together last weekend since they were little buddies. He threw up all night too-the laundry is endless. But so far so good today. (hopefully a 24 hour bug, not a flu. no other symptoms, you know?)

  5. This must be hitting the entire state!

    My piano lessons cancelled for tonight because their whole family has that.

    And our babysitter's son too.

    Keeping fingers crossed here at our house. . .

    Hope Sophie feels better soon!

  6. Great photo. I voted! Sorry to hear about all the throwing up!

  7. I think she is just vomiting over your stress... :)

  8. I hope she feels better soon. And just think you only have one more day for the voting, again I wish you good luck.

  9. Good luck w/ the photo contest! I voted for you :) I think that pic is ADORABLE!!! I might need you to take some pics of Emmy . . .

    Good luck w/ sick little Sophie - Emmy had the flu on her bday and we had to cancel her 1st bday party. I was so sad!
