I know that the last few post have been about Payton, but the Red's have been down and out. They both had a fever virus last week and so they haven't gotten into trouble! Payton on the other hand has been filling their shoes quite nicely.
Right on the heels of the fever virus, Eli also caught the stomach bug that has been going around. So the other night he started throwing up like crazy plus another fever. He was really hurting and crashed out on the couch. Jesse got him something to drink and decided to put it in one of Payton's sippy cups so he could just lay there with it.
Payton had followed Jesse into the kitchen and saw him with the sippy cup in his hand. Then she saw him fill it up. Pure joy filled her soul and she started smiling, dancing around and holding her hands in the air grabbing for it. Jesse walked right past her and handed the drink to Eli. When this happened Payton's world collapsed. Her face immediately turned from the happy smiling baby to mouth open wide, tears streaming and a flop to the floor. She then collected herself and ran over to the couch where Eli was lying (sick as a dog) and got as close as she could to him. Then she started yelling at him....right in his face....and trying to steal his sippy cup. She was relentless in her pursuit. She pulled herself up on the couch and tried to dive bomb him. Try to imagine Eli just passed out and Sissy in his face screaming AAHHHH, AAAHHHHH, AAAHHHHHH!!!! After getting her another sippy cup she finally calmed down, but she still wasn't happy that Eli had one of her cups. Little Stinker!
And just to let you all know.......we had to call poison control for Payton again the other night.....this time it was sun screen. She was fine, but the bottle said to call if ingested...so we called....again! This makes #4!
