twill be a long night, me thinks

Instead of pictures of our amazingly huge apartment and views of the lush vegetation that's everywhere we look, here's a shot I just took a few minutes ago... 

You can see one of our pair of love seats! That should make you happy, mom!

Liam wanted a snack, but I've been confined to the couch all afternoon by a miserable baby who's been sick twelve times in the last 2 1/2 hours. So big brother cuddled him long enough for me to throw together some crackers, cheese and fruit. 

(Well almost long enough... just as I was setting the plates on the table, Liam started yelling that Andrew was throwing up again... "BUT I GOT HIM OVER THE BOWL!")

I'm not sure what has caused this bout of stomach upset. Simon was sick all day Monday thanks to some kamut milk that at first we thought, "Cool! Kamut milk!" but now know WE WILL NOT BE FEEDING HIM AGAIN. But Simon's issue was clearly food related. This? Maybe food (although I can't figure out what it might have been)? Maybe altitude related?? Either way, this babe is exhausted from all the effort. Poor guy.

So the snack has been eaten, but the plates and crumbs remain on the table while I hold my sweet boy who every so often sobs in his sleep before being sick again.

And Peter has a reception tonight at the American (I think?) Embassy and won't be home until around 9:30pm...


  1. oh amy:(. what a lucky mom your are to have such good help:). i hope he feels better soon...the photos just make me want to reach out and hold him...

    (and the love seats are loverly:))

  2. Oh no! That's just horrible. Bella was sick like that about 6 months ago, and I felt so helpless. On the bright side, that is a really cute picture. :)

    Love you!

  3. oh man, poor little guy and poor you. That sounds nasty. I hope he recovers from it as quickly as it came on! Hugs

  4. Those pictures are just too sweet... but I'm so sorry he was feeling cruddy :(
    Hoping for a fast recover!

  5. Liam is such a sweetheart! That first picture you can save to show them when they are punching each other in a few years! I hope Andrew sleeps for you tonight and is feeling better by morning and I sure do hope the other boys don't catch it! Good luck!!

  6. oh my. i truly hope that it's just a stomach virus. at least it would be over and done with.
