Earth N Us

The last time we went to the Earth N Us farm, Lily was around 6 months old, and she ended up vomiting due to a reaction from a shot that she had had the previous day.

It wasn’t so much fun.

Yesterday however, it was a different story.

She fed goats, chickens, got to see a pig, chase a rooster, see ducklings and ostriches, play with her old friends and make a new one….

It was great!

Earth N Us Urban Organic Farm is owned by Ray who believes in an open door policy. Yes, anyone can just walk in!

They sell organic eggs, honey and goat milk.

First official field trip

Today we went on a field trip to a wonderful organic farm right here in Miami called The Earth N Us.

Claudia and Sofia picked Lily and I up, and we met up at the farm with our new friends that we met at the library, Sherrie with McCoy and Zura with Lien.

The farm is hidden in Little Haiti and what a little gem it is!

We saw chickens, ducks, goats, pigs, ostriches. I think the chickens were Lily’s favorites.

There were beautiful flowers, fruit trees, trees in full bloom. It felt like we were elsewhere.

We were all having tons of fun and then out of nowhere, Lily started feeling not so well. She started vomiting non stop.

Instead of coming straight home, Claudia took us to Lily’s pediatrician first. Dr. Salinas checked Lily over and after making sure that she didn’t have a fever or anything too serious, we came back home.

I think Lily was vomiting as a side effect of the shots she had yesterday.

It was a tough afternoon for us. Lily continued on not feeling well and Will and I continued on worrying and wishing we were the ones not feeling well.

After Pedialyte and a bit of rice cereal that didn’t stay down, breast feeding went well and the milk didn’t come back up.

A much better Lily is now sleeping and hopefully she will feel all better tomorrow.

Here are some fun shots of our trip to the organic farm. Lily wears a romper by babyGap.
