Anything outside of these parameters takes a great deal of effort to address… laundry, checking my email, dusting the house, eating breakfast… these things are barely on my radar and I have to really concentrate to put them there. I HOPE we are nearing a stage where things settle… and the “normal” becomes “normal.”
You may remember how well we were doing with Abi’sfeeding… we still are… however the past few days she has vomited a number of times. The nutritionist feels it’s due to a virus (even though she feels great and has no fever) since she had been tolerating the new routine/formula for almost a week before vomiting started… I want to believe that’s the case since the new routine was rocking my world. (In a good way.) Abi’s pediatrician wasn’t very concerned yesterday, but if it continues she wants to address it- since Abi can’t afford to miss many calories. Sooo, I’m on day 2 of pedialyte and just a little formula… we’ll see how that goes. Hopefully it will go great and the virus or whatever is gone! Please, Lord?
Right now Abi should be napping, but I see on the monitor that she’s smiling, staring at her stuffed animals and “talking.” Oh this girl’s a rock star.
Being behind on laundry, emails, etc. really messes with my mojo. I like to be a super organized, ‘I’ve got pretty-much-everything-in-control’ type of gal and having two weeks’ worth of laundry on my bedroom floor is a good way to make me feel “off.” Due to the vomiting I was able to avoid going to the hospital for our nutrition appointment today and instead had the meeting over the phone… this means I have all day to snuggle up… perhaps order Dominos- again- (Don’t judge- I eat all organic MOST of the time- can you tell I’m arguing with myself here?) and get things IN ORDER. Step 1: Laundry. Step 2: Check / organize email. I literally have 2,276 emails in my inbox. Oh wow.
BY the end of today I hope to have a vomit free baby, an empty hamper, and an organized inbox… It’s an ambitious dream...
But, here we go.
PS: There's a very special little boy on my radar who needs a family! Considering adoption? Know somebody who is? I'll be posting about him ASAP- so check back soon to learn more about this precious child!!
