Putting him in this little tub turned out to be a really silly idea, but I had already had him in the big bath a couple times before breakfast. I thought this would be easier. Poor little dude has a raw butt from diarrhea, thanks to the antibiotics. We went to the city today to pick up a different one. Hopefully that is easier on him. Other than the side effects of the antibiotics, he’s doing really great. I don’t even think he holds it against us that he spent his first birthday soothing a sore butt and driving to the city for different drugs! He is very snuggly and I think that’s partly because he misses his dad. He did a lot of snuggling Daddy when he was around. I miss his dad too. It’s been a challenging couple of days. On top of Noah’s needs, the other three are still sick. (They ended up with the nasty bug I got. Graeme has it now too and has to write his exams tomorrow and the next day …. sick as a dog.) They are barely eating and sleeping lots. Zach made garlic flat bread today and I didn’t even make anything else for supper because I thought – what’s the point? Everyone seemed satisfied with that.
Here’s hoping we have more energy tomorrow, less diarrhea, and bigger appetites.
