In keeping with our every-other-week routine, The Baby went to the doctor’s yesterday. He’s seems fine, except he pukes (copious amounts of vomit) one to two times per day. He got X-Rays of his belly to make sure it wasn’t related to constipation. In addition to not eating well, The Baby doesn’t poop well either. Normally, we give him 2 oz of pear juice in a bottle daily (he doesn’t like it straight) and that keeps things moving, but lately he isn’t drinking enough at one time to “hide” the juice. The doctor thought he might be impacted, hence the X-Ray, but he’s not. She said it must be the flu that’s going around, even though he doesn’t have diarrhea or seem ill. I’ve never heard of a flu that makes you vomit only once a day and where you can be happy otherwise. For the next few days we aren’t suppose to give him a lot of milk or food, mostly Pedialyte (he isn’t dehydrated, but they’re the experts). I can’t imagine he’ll drink the Pedialyte, but we’ll try! The doctor also told us we could use a half dose of Miralax in a bottle for constipation. She said it is good for long-term use.
Hopefully he’ll straighten out by the weekend. Until then, I’m going to wear a rain poncho and put a tarp on the floor.
Here are three things that I totally misunderstood recently. The first two things I read wrong. The third, I heard wrong.

“Barchjor” (My husband was saying this they other day, and I kept saying, “excuse me?” I still don’t know what he was saying. He was getting frustrated so I faked it. :-/ )
