my baby is still sick…

so jasper lilith has a particularily resilent form of a stomach virus…  and i know this because she is still stuck with it!

she was sick from early sunday morning but she seemed fine on monday and most of tuesday…  ha!  the virus was just syking us out because she went back to not being able to keep anything down (except for fluids) on tuesday and has been like that since…

the nurses keep telling me to not worry about anything except dehydration but uh, hello?  worry is now my middle name!  forget elizabeth, that is no more, nope, now it is just daune the worrywart hyams…

and she now she has diarrhea and gas to contend with…

she might be going to the doctor tomorrow;  nurses be damned…

here is a slightly fuzzy “jasper is sick” version of one of our end tables…  the vomit bowl is out of the line of sight but never fear, still there…  since sunday…  which is way too long ago…

what?  doesn’t every house have a vomit bowl?

the measuring cup and syringe are my trickier ways of getting jasper lilith to drink more…  cups don’t always cut it when all she can have are liquids…  the girl is tired of liquids!

jasper’s house…

“mama, sit down wif me!  make houzze!  make houzze!”

so i sat down and we made a house…  but really, jasper made it, all i did was hand her the leggo blocks that she pointed at (little miss bossy!) and quiz her on what colors they were 🙂

then she tells me to “taz a pizture, mama!  peaze, taz a pizture of houzze!  jazpah’s houzze!”

so as jasper lilith would say, “taaa-daaa!!”

and after that, she tears it down to start all over again 🙂

which is really what leggos are all about…

another day with the fire and the laziness…

it is cold and rainy (on the verge of icy – hey look!  we are finally seeing some winter here in texas!) again today…  we all got out to the gym this morning as usual but this afternoon has found us ensconced in our cozy house with another fire,  more movies and (for the adults in the house) season 4 of lost

i am curled up on the couch with jasper snuggled up beside me and my laptop, well, on my lap and i am contemplating making some curtains for the study and pillows for the couch…  i have the sewing machine (thanks, david!), the sari fabric and the pillow forms but i am somehow missing the inclination…  the thought is there but the action isn’t!

i blame the lure of the fire,  jasper’s movies and sawyer from lost…

a fire in the hearth day

rough days, rough days…

jasper lilith is just getting over a stomach bug – poor girly…  she was on the tail end of allergies and then this Nastiness hit her!

she is usually very good about being sick – not herself but as cheerful as a sick girl can be but this time, the stomachaches had her feeling really miserable…  saturday night and sunday consisted of crying, vomiting and sleeping…  she kept saying, “mama, tummy huwt…  mama, owwww…”

just about killed me…

at one point on sunday, she asked for a “banaid for tummy”…  “mama, tummy huwt, spidaman banaid?” and she pulled her shirt up and patted her tummy…

you had better believe that she had a spiderman band aid on within minutes…  “thanz you, mom-mom, thanz you…”

but that bug is over and done with and today is a much better day with a much happier jasper lilith…

it has been cold and rainy here so we have had the fire going and movies playing for most of the day…  it was a good house day…

jon has been simmering a cabbage soup on the stove for most of the day as well and it should be yummy by dinner time!  i know, cabbage soup, right?   it sounds very willy wonka, doesn’t it?  but the house smells wonderfully earthy and the soup tastes thick, hearty and Good…  and i don’t like cabbage so that is saying something!

cabbage soup and french bread slathered with butter…  stop your drooling!

and when i say “jasper lilith’s”, i mean it!  she picks out her own movies carefully and if i am not quick enough, she puts them in too!

siamese twins…

jasper lilith and her daddy are watching a movie called robots and i have the audacity to vacuum while they are oh, so busy doing all the watching!  the sheer nerve of me!

well, i persevere through all the “daunes!  mom-moms!  vacuum cweaner offs!” noise from the peanut gallery and just continue vacuuming as quick as is humanly possible…  jasper gets all bothered by my vacuuming and decides to climb into jons lap and so the next time i turn around, i see this…

i have somehow traded in my two peoples for a two-headed, red-jacketed sofa monster!!!

they were quite comfortable all cocooned up like that and remained like that for some time 🙂

jasper lilith and baby…

mom,  jasper has been going through a baby doll (the one you got her for her birthday)  kick lately…

she likes to give the baby a “milt bottow” (translation:  milk bottle) and put the baby down for her nap time 🙂

jasper lilith doesn’t do anything 1/2 way – she has to climb into her old baby bed to feed the baby 🙂

and lay down with her to make sure she goes to sleep!  “shhhhh!  baby sleeping!” she whispers to me…
