What a week!

12 weeks old and what a week it has been. The week started with me headed back to work and Maddy starting "school". I work 11 hours on Mondays and came home to find out that Daniel and Ryder had diarrhea throughout the day. I figured that it may have been just the stress of being with someone new, at least that's what I was hoping.

That night Maddy started throwing up, so I knew then we were up against a GI bug. By Tuesday afternoon the boys were still pooping a ton and Maddy was barely eating anything, so I left work early (the kids were with our awesome nanny and my mom) and took Ryder to the doctor bc he seemed to be getting the worst of it and he can't afford to lose weight. Well unfortunately he has dropped from the 5th to the 4th percentile, but the doctor said he was well hydrated and that we were doing the right thing. She switched the boys to soy formula mixed with breast milk and had us offer pedialyte in between bottles.

Wednesday Maddy was back to her old self, which meant that by the end of the day she was cranky from being pent up all day. The boys seemed to be feeling better, but then Daniel threw up. Ugh!

Today they have pooped a lot less, but both Daniel and Ryder have thrown up once. They woke up hungry this am and have eaten much better today, but obviously they are still not 100%. It breaks my heart to see them sick and I am praying that Garrett doesn't get it too! I don't think I can take much more.

Please pray for healthy babies, I really cannot stand to see them sick. I'm so worried about Ryder's weight and this is taking its toll on him. Daniel also seems to be losing ground when compared to Garrett, but he has a little better reserve. So again, please keep us in your prayers. And here is hoping for a better week next week!

We are beach bound this weekend so I'm hopeful that the babies feel better so we can all have a relaxing time with some good friends!

And even though he's sick, he's still all smiles - my Daniel man!
