The Schwartz's vs Cold Comfort

Sarah woke up not feeling so well on Friday.  She tried to drink her bottle but exorcist-style threw it up, twice.  Thankfully, Chris got up with Sarah and was letting me sleep in so I missed that fun.  He stayed home with her on Friday since he was off of work and I went out to try to knock out a good portion of our Christmas shopping (not at the butt crack of dawn, I'm not that crazy--yet.)  She did what anyone does when they don't feel good and slept most of the day.  

Saturday, she was into the yucky poo phase of whatever this is.  Still no fever, but her stomach must have hurt because she didn't have any appetite.  The cough was worse making it so she couldn't sleep and she had rubbed her nose raw between her wiping snot all over the place and us trying to get the snot from her nose before she rubbed it all over the place.  

So we cuddled on the couch for most of the day watching Cinderella and Beauty and the Beast.  She'd lay her lion lovie down on me and lay on my chest.  Sophie must have been out of her mind with jealousy!  At one point, Sarah sat up for a moment to look at Sophie while she sat on the floor beside us.  That split second was all Sophie needed and she hopped up and sat on my chest right where Sarah had been laying. Sarah had a look like, hey, what's the deal!  She tried to lay her head back down on me but Sophie was in the way.  Then she seemed really annoyed that Sophie was on top of her lion lovie.  Well she wouldn't stand for that and pulled and tugged until she got her lion out from under the cat.  I felt bad for her, but I pushed Sophie off and continued to snuggle with my sick little girl.

When Chris got home from church she wanted to sit with him while he played on the computer.  

Fortunately she seemed to have a bit of her normal personality back by the end of the day.  She even ate a couple of strawberries for dinner.  We gave all of her toys a lysol wipe bath after she went to bed, so hopefully she'll be back to full health by tomorrow.  But even now while I write this I hear her in there coughing like she's got the black lung.  
Sick or not, have you ever seen a more adorable little girl?


  1. Poor baby! Yes, she is still adorable. Except fo the throwing up part.

  2. I am glad Sarah is feeling better! I hope you are also! Looking forward to the blog post about your exorcist style puking! :)
