No banner this week. I'm blogging while nursing!
•I think Mortimer has a broken rear foot/leg. He has been limping/walking oddly. He can't jump and has to stop and rest every few steps. Unfortunately, we do not have the money to take him to the vet...at least for another week. It seems better every day, so who knows.
•Alice loves her brother. We have to keep a close eye on her because she likes to hug him (usually by being on top of him), and tries to sit by him or on him! Oh, and the swing and bouncy seat are hers! She just let's him use them. She grabbed the binky the other day, and put it in his mouth!
•Last night was rough. Everyone was asleep by 11:30, so I went to sleep shortly before midnight. HJ woke up at 1:45 with horrible gas. I didn't get him to sleep until about 6. I ended up sleeping on the couch and had him in the bouncy seat. Then it was wake up time at 7:30, and I had 5 minutes between getting him down and Alice waking up!
•I gave no idea what I ate that is causing him this much gas! Poor little guy! :-(
•I think my body is figuring out what HJ needs to eat. I still get a bit engorged, but not nearly as often or as painful. I haven't pumped in two days! In one week I was able to freeze a ton of milk, and I wasn't "emptying" the gals-just relieving the pain.
•Sean told me he doesn't know how I do it (not falling asleep while Alice is up). I told him that I sometimes do fall asleep while nursing, but that I'm not really "asleep". I'm aware of what is going on, but my eyes are closed. It is that "mother's sleep". Usually, Alice is sitting right by us, playing with HJ's feet or rubbing his head.
•Sean doesn't go in for his last training session until 5:15 tonight. Ugh! Thanks for ruining our weekend! He won't get home until 6 or so tomorrow. Fingers crossed for way earlier!
•Our Anniversary is Sunday. I doubt we will do anything. We have some gift cards from Christmas, but I'm not comfortable leaving HJ yet. So maybe in a few weeks we will do something.
•My mom still has not been to see the baby! I'm a bit appalled. Though I'm leaning more towards upset, anymore. How do you not come visit one of your grandchildren, especially first grandson? She lives thirty minutes away! No excuses!
•I still have not heard from my MIL. She must be pretty upset with us still. (see update for that story).
•I'll have Harold Jack's birth story up this weekend. For those that don't know, he was born March 14, at 3:08 am. Weighing 9 lbs and 22 inches.
•Lindsay guessed the correct birthday! Lindsay and Jen guessed the closest to his weight and height. So let me know if you have a preference on baked goodies! I'll get them out to you as soon as possible :-) Give me a few weeks, though!
For more leftovers, visit Danifred and all the other participants!
