The Projectile Vomiteer
Besides her nightmarish GERD (reflux) until age six months, my little baby made it to two months past two years old without ever having vomited. Due to a suspected stomach virus allegedly transmitted by her cousins Baby B and Logo, Ava is ill with what she calls the "ookie pookies". The distance of projection, sheer velocity, wretched stench, and mammoth amount amazed both her father and I. Never having seen her vomit in the past and thus unable to predict her reaction, I am pleased to note that so far she has taken the events in stride. She is even carrying around a "puke bowl" in case of need. If her cousins' course of illness is any indication, this is going to be one long night.
