Homebound...

. . .that's what we've been since Christmas. Since Addison was sick we have been staying inside to make sure she gets sleep and feels better. I started to feel a little sick Wednesday night, luckily I never threw up. So since Tim knew I hadn't felt to great Wednesday night, he decided to sleep on the couch because it's a really busy time for him at work, and he didn't want to risk getting sick. Well Thursday morning Tim woke up heading for the bathroom to throw up. (so much for sleeping on the couch!) He stayed home the first part of the morning and he thought he felt a little better and felt like he needed to try and head into work. I called my parents to see how they were feeling and sure enough, they were down with the flu too, and my mom told me that JJ (my nephew who they watch) was throwing up. I called my grandma and she was sick and told me that my cousin, her dad, her husband and her son were all sick. I felt terrible! At the time (Christmas morning) I didn't realize exactly what Addison had. I feel so careless about taking Addison to my parents house Christmas day. It really is so awful! The only good thing was that it only lasted 24 hours, but still it's no fun being sick. So we have been staying home and cleaning and disinfecting our house and Addison's toys. Addison is doing great and we are pretty sure she isn't contagious anymore. We finally got out Saturday and went to Church today. We are happy to be healthy and feeling good for the New Year.

We had that too, right before Christmas. It was miserable, and it took its time working through our whole family. Luckily we are all better now and back to ourselves! I'm glad you are doing better there too.

ugh! I am glad you are all feeling better. I finally decided to get a flu shot this year because for the past 3 years I have had the flu on Christmas day... so not fun!

It was so sad to see Addie sick! It's amazing that no one in our family got sick I guess! Glad to hear you are all feeling better. Happy New Year!!

I'm so glad you are all feeling better. Hey Kim, we were thinking of having a pajama/waffle playgroup sometime next week. Would you like to come?
Looks like you guys had a great Christmas.

I am glad you guys are starting to feel better. Being sick is terrible when you have a baby. And I hate when they are sick too.
