In response to Chiclet831's comment:
Med - My DS had a few hungry days this week. I think it was Tuesday he ate every 2 hours! He also slept a ton. I don't know if this is a scheduled growth spurt or not. He seems longer to me today but who knows.
DH just called me to tell me that he left work because he's not feeling well and then he threw up on the side of 93. Yikes! Should I be worried about keeping DS away from him until he gets better or does it even matter at this point? DH does his 2 morning feedings and gets him dressed so there's no chance that he wasn't exposed. My parents weren't feeling well yesterday and my mom actually threw up too. We were with them Tuesday night. My mom thought it was something they ate, but now I'm not so sure. There was a stomach bug around DS's daycare two weeks ago but, miraculously, he didn't get it (his teacher and 2 classmates did). I don't think I can handle it if DS gets sick! :-)
Growth spurts can happen in developmental & behavioral ways and don't necessarily have to result in a lot of actual physical growth :)
In regard to the sickness, I'd make sure that your DH doesn't come in close contact with your DS, and disinfect anything your DH touches and have in stay in a separate part of the house. If your DH hadn't actually gotten sick yet, there's a good chance your DS wasn't exposed. Hygiene & separation will be the key!
On my end- MAN it's been a while since I've actually been able to pop on and read some posts. It's been a busy and fantastic summer with my DD, and I am absolutely dreading when school starts up in less than 2 weeks. This summer has made both me and my DH give serious thought to the idea of me becoming a stay at home mom, or a very part time working mom, for so many reasons. This coming year will be a test, as we are adjusting our spending and living habits to survive mainly on his salary, to sort of prepare us for if/when we decide to go that route.
