Kirra has been feeling much better today. We took the first half of the day easy with just Pedialite which she kept down just fine, and then for lunch she had a half a piece of toast which she did well with, and then tonight she ate ham, green beans, and a pasta side dish. She ate a good amount of it, and kept it all down!
Well, on our way to daycare today, K was super happy, and all the sudden she starts crying in pain, or something, and I looked in my rearview mirror, and blah, out came last nights dinner. So I pulled off the road, got her pseudo cleaned up, and back home we went. She went on to throw up 4 more times today, and is having troubles with her backside too 😦
I just feel so sad for her, because she doesn’t really know what’s going on, and she can’t keep any food down, so we’ve been on a pedialite diet for the rest of the day. Went to the doctor because 2 other kids at K’s daycare were hospitalized last weekend for the same thing/dehydration. So we’re just trying to keep K hydrated and out of the ER for now.
Hopefully she can keep down pedialite tomorrow! Please say some prayers for her that my little bunny feels better soon.
Well since Kirra was so enthralled with the fish while we were camping, I bought her a fantail Goldfish for her bedroom. Now every morning when she wakes up the first thing she says when I get her out of her crib is ‘ish” and she points to Mr. ‘ish’. And when she goes to bed she says buh bye ish.
Too precious. Here is Mr. ish.
Camping was so much fun! We got headed up north on Friday about 4pm. We took 65 up to 200 and cut over by the federal dam on Leech Lake. Kirra slept the entire way from home to Bena. Once we got there to our site, there was still a bit of sunlight, and everyone helped us unload the truck. Bless Theo’s soul she had already set up our tent!
Friday we got everything settled, and Jason had to go down to Reemer to pick up Jay, Barb and the kids, because Jay’s truck broke down. He finally got back to camp around 10pm or so. That’s when Kirra went back to bed!
The next morning we woke up about 8am, had breakfast, and I took the Kayak out for a spin. I even paddled out to a bever dam on the south side of the lake. Being in the ocean kayak with a flat bottom, I was able to go around the entire thing. It was really neat to see. My aunt and uncle came for a visit too, and they even gave us a bass they caught! Theo, Pam, Kirra and I all went for a hike, and found a water reserve some where north west of our camp. Came back with several ticks, but not as many as 2008. Saturday night was extremely cold, we almost brought Kirra into bed with us, so she’d stay warm, but she was in her sleeping bag, and under about 4 other blankets, so she was nice and toasty. I had also put winter tights on her, so that she couldn’t accidently peal off her sox in the middle of the night.
Sunday the kids tipped over in the canoe (look above for the video) and I went fishing with Jason. Didn’t catch squat. Later on I took out the Kayak again, and went fishing from it, when I had paddled over to Jason’s boat. A little sunny pulled me into the reeds when I caught him! Then I paddled the entire shoreline back to camp. Where we camp is a primative sight, and we basically have the entire lake to ourselves. It’s so great! Kirra loved the fish that everyone caught. She kept saying ‘ish’ ‘ish’ ‘ish’.
Monday morning we packed up and left camp about 9:45, and this time we took hwy 2 all the way thru Grand Rapids, and to Hwy 65. We didn’t hit hardly any traffic. It was great!
Well until next time…
Time to relax now. I’ve been on the go-go-go for about 4 or 5 weeks straight now, and it’s finally time to relax! It will be the first weekend in a long time I have devoted to myself! I’ve joined a small group at church that I am checking out for the first time tomorrow, so hopefully it’s fun. Its always interesting to meet new people, and learn new views on things. I’m kind of excited. I may bring Kirra with me, the gal there lets the kido’s come along too.
Honestly…. 18 months alerady? Really? Where does the time actually go? Kirra and I drove to the pediatricians office this morning, and she weighed in at 22 pounds, and 1.5 ounces. She is 30 inches tall, so she’s just a little peanut! Just like mama.
I got Kirra new sneaks yesterday that actually fit her! I’ve gotten her several pairs of shoes at Garage Sales that do not actually fit her, and sandals that keep falling off when she plays. The new ones have a big toe box for her chubbly little footsies.
Yesterday I almost died laughing…. we were driving home, and in the rearview mirror I was looking at Kirra going Ho Ho Ho…(laugh), and she just kept imitating me, it was so funny.
Well some water pipe busted in our floor/ceiling of the basement, so the downstairs bathroom and part of the ‘den’ is under water. Jason is out buying a shop vac, and then we’ll have to fix the pipe. Thankfully we haven’t carpeted down there yet. I think that is next Fall project? I’ve been cleaning out the pool today we had about a foot or so of leaves glued to the bottom, and nasty brown water. Looks like you just want to jump right in and have a swim! NOT!
