If anyone has
I hope you don't mind me starting a new thread Adrienne:)
Teddy and I are both sick, sick SICK! And it is awful. We both have pneumokokken and something called the boca virus. Basically a flu type virus and a respiratory bacterial infection. Teddy has been sick longer and has been throwing up for days which I thankfully have managed to avoid but we're both been feverish and I've had an awful sore throat while Teddy has been coughing away for weeks. Just really miserable. DH has had to stay home yesterday and today which is a real problem with his work but I have been on antiobiotics for a day now
Oh Ash!! That stinks, feel better soon!!!So I totally lost track in the January thread with our trip so I hope to start fresh with this month.Wanna hear a crazy story? A friend of mine was pregnant with a girl and due February 16th. She was in our home town for a weekend of college hockey games on the 15th of January (she lives about 3-4 hours from our home town). Im not sure what caused her to go to the hospital on the morning of January 16th but they ended up having an ultrasound and they found TWO babies!! She ended up giving birth (one vaginally, one C-section), that day and has TWIN girls!!! The docs never saw the second twin during her other ultrasounds and they didnt know until she was ready to give birth!! Isnt that nuts?! The babes were 5 lbs-ish and spent 17 days in NICU.
Ash, thank you so much for doing it this month!
Ash--Man, that really sucks. I was sick a couple weeks ago, but Peter missed it. I can't imagine taking care of a sick baby while being sick too. I hope you all feel better soon!
Ruby--No advice about the sleep, just (((Hugs))). And that's NUTS about finding twins at the last minute like that. That was my fear while I was pg...
Alyssa--Why not just move his bedtime up, and if we wakes to eat, feed him? Peter falls asleep around 8:30, then I take him to bed with me between 9:30-10 and change his diaper. He wakes up a little, fusses, then passes right back out.
Adrienne--I have trouble keeping up too!
AFM--Peter finished up an antibiotic Sunday for his second double ear infection since December 23. We go back to the doctor tomorrow to make sure they're actually clear this time, and for another weight check. Supplementing him has helped, but I still hate doing it. Making bottles is a pain in the butt. On the plus side, my milk supply has increased (but not my pump output?!). I keep doing breast compressions when he pops off and accidentally spraying him in the face. Oops.
Otherwise, he's just growing like a weed. A week ago, he could barely get his toes on the ground in his exersaucer. Saturday night, he was flat-footed in it. He's also trying to mimic us when we speak, so if we say "Hello" in the mornings, he says "Ehh Oooo." Sure, it's not a word in his mind, but it's sweet! He also hugs me now, and has discovered the cats. I'm just waiting until he's mobile and can grab one of them! My poor sweet Sam is in trouble. Alice comes running to him anytime Peter looks at her and squeals.
