Lily is sick!

Well, maybe the sleeping thing was just a precursor to the throwing up / diarrhea thing. Poor Lily is not feeling well at all. Actually, let me take that back. She's not feeling badly, she just can't really keep anything down. And it's been going on for almost a week now. So, we had our first sick baby visit today.

Doctor prescribed some kind of powder that gets mixed into her bottle to help restore the healthy bacteria in her digestive track and said she has "a bug." Because she doesn't have a fever, seems pretty happy otherwise and isn't refusing food, there's not too much to worry about.

Lily is now 8 lbs, 15 ozs, just two ozs away from doubling her birthweight! Yay! Also, her mom is finally out of jail, so visits will (theoretically) begin again soon.

Have you read The No Cry Sleep Solution? It is one of the best books I've ever read on sleep. Another really good one is Good Nights.
