By early evening, I was miserable and broke down into tears. Keenan started bawling too and said, "I feel so bad that you're sick!" He then proceeded to be a Huge help by rinsing Moriah's hair, helping her out of the tub, and drying her off!
After talking to one of our doctor friends, Josh, I decided to head into L and D, just to get checked out and be on the safe side. Devin took the kids for the night.
They checked me in and found out (as I suspected) that I was really dehydrated. They gave me a liter of intravenous fluid as well as some medication for nausea and the heartburn. I felt Much better when I left the hospital, but had a pretty rough night of sleep, since the heartburn returned and I was also having some pretty intense discomfort from the vericose veins in my legs.
Today's goal: Drink. Drink. Drink. =)
Keenan has really been enjoying school and I am daily amazed at what he's learning and new skills he's developing! Before starting school, he didn't really draw specific things, he would mostly just scribble. Now he has taken off!
One of his recent favorites are rainbows =)
His name =)
A picture of himself =)
For the first time (that I know of) Keenan and Moriah were "playing house" this morning, with him being the Daddy and her being the Mommy...
The two of them with their Six babies piled in the stroller!
(Keenan looks a little spacey, which I suppose is a realistic look for a dad of sextuplets) =)
Yesterday while Moriah was still napping, and I was lying in bed, Keenan brought some blocks in and sat beside me and built this monster. At the end, he added all the skinnier pieces at the bottom. I assumed they were legs of some sort, but he gave me a (surprisingly detailed) description of what everything was, so I decided to share it with you: =)

That's my boy!
