After our short trip to Tennessee, we headed back home for a few days of rest before starting school back. Mimi came back with us so we enjoyed having her here with us. Easton always loves when she's here.
She was able to go with us to our Wednesday night service for children. During the service, our preacher began to pray and asked the children to put their hands together to pray or they could hold their hands like his. Easton chose to hold his hands like the preachers and I captured this beautiful picture. It is so dear to my heart!
Fall Break came and went so fast, but it was so nice. I loved spending the days with Easton. After being a SAHM mom for half a year to working full time (even though I love teaching!) has been a hard transition some days/weeks so I loved our time together.
This week Easton has been sick with the dreaded stomach bug. His school called me Wednesday at my school and said he had been throwing up and was complaining of a stomach ache and a sore throat. I picked him up and he was oh so pitiful. We came home and rested until his doctor appointment at 3:20. Until that time, he hadn't ate anything and had only drank a cup of juice. He really complained of a tummy ache on the way to the doctor and the minute we walked in, he threw up everywhere. I got him cleaned up and the area cleaned up with the help of a nurse. He tested negative for strep and flu, but we are still treating him wit antibiotics for strep since his throat was red. We are waiting on the culture they sent off to come back. He was also given medicine for nausea. Thankfully they gave us a "puke pan" (as they called it) for the drive home. Sure enough, we needed it. Needless to say, I've taken off all week to stay home with it. I think we are finally seeing the light at the end of the stomach bug tunnel.
Up until today, he's only ate blueberry waffles. Yesterday I made him a Mickey Mouse waffle to brighten his spirits and he was so excited.
This morning he cuddled on the couch with me for quite a while, but has started playing more now. It is just pitiful when your baby is sick!
