-The boy is all clear on the ear-infection front...and also cleared of teething issues (thank God because if that's how teething was going to go, I'd rather him just be a gummi bear forever)
He does however have a "virus"...which means I've just had to dope him up to make him comfortable and let him ride out the thing on his own. Tylenol is my friend.
-Doc said that if he wasn't better by the end of the weekend, to bring him back Monday - so yesterday we went back (since he still had a low grade fever, and had developed a cough), and it seems he's on the tail end of things, so no need for antibiotics - oh! and we got the all clear to start him on baby food.
-the boy loves Sweet Potatoes...although hubs and I were covered in a fine orange mist during the feeding process.
-He does NOT however, enjoy rice cereal mixed with pear juice (recommended for constipation by the doc) - he literally GAGGED several times and then eyeballed me with severe distrust like I tried to feed him liver or something.
-Bootcamp is still hard...lots of weights and running, same as last week...and I'm still wondering what the hell I was thinking by signing up for this voluntarily.
-Also, that whole 5am wake up alarm? Most days I want to chuck it against the wall, roll over, and go back to sleep. You could say I'm not so much a morning person...
-We have finally transitioned Adam to his own crib in his own room. (I know some of you are thinking, FINALLY! - and others may be thinking ALREADY? But I've asked around and seriously it seems there is no hard and fast rule to when the transition should take place - I just waited until he got too big for the cradle) The first night sucked and I must have been up about 15 times. The second night he slept from 9pm until 4:20am...total shock...he's just unpredictable.
-I have to admit, I'm a wee bit sad that he won't be in his cradle next to me anymore. He's growing up! But it's also TIME...I'm ready to have my room back.
-Which also reminds me that tomorrow he will be 6 months old...nutty.
-Anyone care to share your thoughts on the flu shot? I've never gotten it myself - I even turned it down when I was pregnant against the advice of my OB...but my pediatrician highly recommends it for Adam. I have friends who are all about the flu shot - and friends who are completely against it....thoughts? anyone?
-Our furnace busted, wouldn't you know it - right when it gets freezing cold at nighttime? The night Adam slept until around 4am, I plucked him out of his crib to change his diaper and he was a frickin POPSICLE - thank you, thank you - I'll take that mother of the year award now. I took him back to bed with me to snuggle him back to warmth, and told hubs how guilty I felt and he goes "it's okay - he's thawing out, he'll be fine". Ha.
I think that's it, although I'm sure I forgot something because I'm tired...and it's only 9:30pm - woooooo, party animal!
How about some squishy baby pics...
