I’m 3 months old now! Can you believe it?! Mommy says this was a milestone—that if we made it to 3 months with nursing and sleeping and reflux and cloth diapers and general baby woes that everything would be ok. Yay! I’m not getting kicked of the breast or out of my comfy diapers!
Oh…but, Mommy spoke too soon. My reflux is BAD again. And I’ve had some, um, digestive issues, so Mommy’s guessing some hidden dairy or soy snuck in somewhere. I also seem to reflux more when Mommy eats bananas and/or sweet potatoes. Go figure. This, along with the fact I want to stay awake and play, has really messed up our sleep.
Mommy and I also have a cold. I don’t know where we got it cause we haven’t really been out and about too much. Mommy is coughing pretty bad, but I just feel congested.
On Friday, I had to go to the doctor to get my first shot. Mommy held me and I only cried for a few seconds. Daddy took the day off from work to go with me cause he and Mommy were expecting me to be sicky all weekend. But I held it together! In fact, after a nice long nap, we went shopping in the afternoon and out to dinner with friends later that night. We went to a building supply store that was going out of business and Mommy bought new hardware for the cabinets—for only $15. What a steal! Uncle Scott met us there and he apparently bought a new door. He invited us to dinner later, so we were able to give everyone their Christmas presents. Rein-beers! Ha! We had fun crafting all afternoon.
I woke up half-way through dinner, but I didn’t cry one time! Mommy tried to give me a bottle of pumped milk, but it’s official—I refused to even drink one drop…A couple of drops leaked from the nipple into my mouth, but I let it dribble out of my mouth. So I sat at the table like a big boy for an hour chatting and playing with everyone! All with no milk! Mommy says she’s thinking about giving me milk in a sippy cup, but she’s worried that I’ll start to like the fast flow of that better and then quit nursing. Oh silly Mommy. When is she going to learn I’m not going to drink milk from a cup or bottle cause then that means she won’t ever be able to leave me! Yay for being with Mommy ALL day and ALL night forever! Yay!!!
Speaking of which, Mommy IS going back to work in January. But Dr. Pat, her boss, is going to let Mommy work from home for awhile so she can try to get me transitioned better. Mommy is going to be working full-time hours, but she’s going to do it whenever she can fit in during the day (or night…), and with me strapped to her! Yay! I feel we’ll be very productive together.
We were productive this week. We’re packing up odds and ends to get ready to move into our new house. The bank did the appraisal this week, so they’re definitely moving things along quickly. Keep praying that everything continues to go well and we can get into the new house in a couple of weeks! Daddy is reading up and watching videos on how to lay flooring. This is going to be so fun.
We also got two (kind of three) things checked off of our Christmas To-Do List:
Decorate the Christmas tree
- Hang stockings
- Watch Elf
- 4. Watch Miracle on 34th Street
- Dance to Christmas music
- 6. Drive around to look at Christmas lights
- Bake goodies
- Wrap presents
- Attend 1 holiday event
- Read Twas the Night Before Christmas
On Friday we watched Miracle on 34th Street (the original BW version). This is one of Mommy’s favorite movies, but Daddy had never seen it before. He really liked it. I did, too! “I believe, I believe. It’s silly, but I believe.” So cute.
Earlier in the week we drove around to look at Christmas lights. I couldn’t really see anything out the window though…And I guess we can count dinner with friends as our holiday event, right? There were rein-beers. That’s definitely festive. And Mommy sent Christmas cards. This wasn’t on the list this year, but turned into a last minute hassle project.
Welp, Mommy says it’s bedtime now. We’re all sleepy (I’m little, Mommy’s sicky, and Daddy worked until 2am most nights this week!).
Here’s a few more cute pictures of me:
(Oh, I like cuddles with Daddy.)
