A Rough Couple of Days

My little Thomsen is not doing so well. I’m not sure if he’s teething or just misses Errol, but he has had a rough couple of days. After supper tonight he threw up twice. It was weird to have real, stinky vomit on me instead of his milky spit-ups from the early months. I guess it’s just another sign that he’s not a little baby any more. Also, last night was possibly the worst sleeping night in Thom’s 14 months of life. The boy did not want his milk! Thom refusing Mama’s milk is just about unheard of. I am hoping not to jinx it, but I don’t think tonight can be any worse. I honestly have no clue how to calm him down when he won’t drink anything–that’s our thing!

We did have some good moments today. Aunt Sarah was in town and took Chris, Katie, Thomsen, and me out for supper. Earlier in the day, we had a lovely walk on the MOPAC trail. For some reason there were a ton of monarch butterflies today, and Thom really enjoyed watching and pointing at them. Monarch butterflies remind me of Reading Rainbow. I kept expecting LeVar Burton to jump out in front of us singing, “Butterfly in the sky, I can fly twice as high!” Luckily, this did not happen because I’m quite sure that would have frightened poor Thom into another one of today’s crying fits.

24 hours until Errol’s return.

We had a wonderful but very busy day yesterday at the Arbor Day Farm. I felt a little Jon and Kate Plus 8-esque with our planned outing.

Thomsen spent most of the time in the Ergo and isn’t quite ready to join the other children in the Tree Adventure or picking his own apples, but he definitely liked the cider slush I bought. Errol was dying for a slice of apple pie but had to settle for an apple chicken salad sandwich. Life is hard. Maybe there’s an apple pie in your future… Mom, we’re waiting for you to pick up the bag of apples we brought back for you…

A little over a week ago Thomsen started walking. I finally caught some on camera, but I had the camera turned the wrong way. Whoops. Try to enjoy nonetheless.

Thom has been watching us play ball with Lois for a very long time. He has finally learned how to join the fun.
