Identity Crisis Experience

We went to Norman Saturday afternoon to hear my brother, Seth, sing with the band Identity Crisis. On our way there, Olivia fell asleep. Which was unusual because she had just gotten up from a nap and she doesn't usually sleep that much during the day.
She then woke up and began to cry and hold her belly. And then, up came the blueberries she had for breakfast. I pulled over and cleaned her as best I could. When we got to Mt. Ida, I took the kids into the Family Dollar store there and poor Livi was just wearing a pull up and a blanket. I went to get supplies! Clorox, a new outfit, Febreez, Shout, crackers, and a toy to help her feel better. I was getting an outfit for her when she started losing it again. It was awful! In the middle of the store. So, now her blanket was blueberry covered as well. We finally made it out of the store and got Livi and her car seat all cleaned up. We made it to Norman and she got sick again, outside of the car this time.
We got to see Nana, Poppa, and Uncle Seth. Olivia seemed to be feeling better and Abi and KayKay definitly had a great time.

Abi is really into bug finding. She found a caterpillard (as she calls them) right off the bat and found her a stick to live on. She made Poppa bug sit when she ran around to play.

Uncle Seth took the girls to get their faces painted.

There was good food.

Olivia had bread and sprite...and a little bit of chicken.

Identity Crisis and their groupies.

Olivia spent most of the evening curled up on me and Nana. We headed home and about 10 minutes down the road Olivia got sick again. Projectile sick. I then spent some time pulled over on the side of the road (in the dark) trying to change her clothes and clean out her car seat. Which, by the way, is horribly difficult to clean. She rode home in a pull up but she fell asleep so quickly that I don't think it bothered her too much.
And the current sickly update is that Olivia woke up with a high fever this morning. She has slept a lot today and eaten very little. She has had crackers and water. So far, knock on wood, no more throwing up. I am hoping that everyone in the house doesn't end up with it!

Hi Bethany-
Livi's sickness sounds like what Ava had last week - a nasty virus. After the awful puking and more puking, then projectile puking, and high fever, it finally subsided to just explosive diarrhea every few minutes...and about 24 hrs later she was much better. Ugh! Hope the rest of your babies don't get it too. I know it's hard not to spread it though with more than one child in the home. It spreads b4 you even know the 1st one has something! We'll be praying for y'all. :)

Poor Olivia! Wish you would have had my cell number while you were in Mt Ida...I would have helped. Except for the fact that Josh had my car keys in his pocket! LOL Hope she is better!
