Whew I feel like I've just been going going going this week! Lots of stuff happening and still feeling like nothing got done. Isn't that every SAHM's week? And yet every day almost, we go through the same things:
Practice sitting up in the high chair and play with spoons (check to see if tongue thrust reflex is still in full force. It is!)
Walker time - standing alone or pulling Uriah around because well, he can't push himself in it on this carpet. We have maybe 3 sq ft of flat floor in this trailer
Story time (right now we're reading Prince of Egypt, one of my favorite movies!)
Bath time with lotion and a new outfit after
Play mat time
Singing active songs on the couch (This little piggy, Patty Cake, Wheels on the Bus, etc)
Practice standing, talking, and sitting with mommy
Stroller ride outside (only on days under 80 degrees, which hasn't been for over a week or so now unfortunately)
'Tour of the house and pictures on the wall along with mommy singing 'Part of Your World' from Little Mermaid (the other day we actually watched the movie and when the song came on his head whipped around so fast to see that screen, haha)
Not to mention washing bottles, working out, cooking, fixing the hubby's lunch, laundry (diapers especially), cleaning off all his toys (with all the cat hair floating around I have to do this daily), wash other dishes besides bottles, empty the dishwasher, and then whatever other chores I manage to fit in... like yesterday was cleaning the toilets and washing my wig. I also wanted to repaint my toenails but I just pulled out the color on them right now and touched up where they were chipping. Sometimes ya gotta do what ya gotta do!
Yesterday was amazing, I have to brag. I tried to wear the baby out before every nap, and went down fairly easy for all of them! Not one red faced crying incident! Can't say the same for today considering he went poo and now that his poo is solid he cries sometimes when going, and his first nap I had him was a struggle (hubby was nice enough to let me sleep in a couple more hours!). But I will cherish yesterday! Our morning started off with a bang anyway when I asked hubby to take the baby at 7 because he was so squirmy, and then little one proceeded to vomit alllllll over hubby, the bed, everything! Both daddy and baby got baths. I'm not sure why it happened, but since it's only the second or third puking incident we've had since he was born, I'll chalk it up to just one of those things. He seems fine now anyway.
We also had our 4 month appointment on the 22nd! Uriah looks great. No teeth yet. Off the charts for height but great weight. Ready for solids around 6 months. She did bring up that one side of his head was flatter. I mentioned I had a shaping pillow and she said to use it often since he still has his soft spots. Thing is, we bed shared for most of the 3rd month because he was so hard to get to sleep, and I made sure he was on the side that wasn't flat to even it out. If it's not evened out now, I'm afraid it probably won't be. It doesn't seem bad though so I'm not too worried. She also asked if we were still delaying shots. I said yeah at least until he's off antibiotics. She thought that was fine and said she'd see me again in a few months! I figure if everything seems fine I'll wait until 7 months or so to see her again. I'm just glad Uriah is doing so well
