Emma got sick Thursday before last with the stomach bug. The day started by her telling me at 5:30am that she just threw up in her crib. Always a good start to a day. She finally stopped throwing up about 3 or 4 hours later but with the start of the next day, was pretty much her old self. I, however, got sick on Saturday morning and spent most of the day on my back. Thank goodness Scott was off last weekend.
Did I mention I took both of the girls to the dr for their check up? Emma was on 12/1 and she was 27 lbs and 35 1/2″ tall. The dr said she looked great and seemed very smart. The dr. even looked back at her records and it said at her 6 month check up that she was a very bright baby. She had a flu shot that she didn’t even realize she got. The nurse was so fast neither Scott nor I could believe it. She also got her finger pricked to check her cholesterol and she made a bigger deal out of that. She held her hand up afterwards and acted like it was broken or something. Lexi had her check up on 12/7. She was 9 lbs and 21″ long. She doesn’t have any shots until her 2 month check up. Lexi is already 6 1/2 weeks!
Lexi is still a great baby. The gas thing finally kicked in with full force and some days are spent with Mylicon by our sides. She still sleeps a lot of the day. A typical day would start at about 6:30 or 7. She barely eats and goes back to sleep within 30 minutes but she’s usually up by 9 to eat again. Then she goes back to sleep about 10 or 10:30 until lunch time. She’s usually up for a good hour then and then takes another nap about 1. She will either sleep the whole afternoon or she might be up at 3 for an afternoon snack and then back down. She doesn’t get up until about 5 or 6 and then is up for a good while in the evening until she takes a nap until about 9 or so to eat again. She then will go down for the night about 11. Last night she slept until 3:30 which I think was her longest stretch yet. Then, she might be up one more time at about 5:30am for another feeding before the day starts again.
She has smiled twice that I recall. Of course I didn’t write down what exact day!! It will go on the calendar as sometime this past week. Of course, that is, when she gets a calendar. Yes, she’s a second child. I swore I wouldn’t be like this!
Emma has fallen in love with the LeapPad ABC DVD. She calls it her froggie movie and wants to watch it all the time. She says ABCDFG. And sometimes says OPST. Her numbers sometimes go 12356. Or, 238910. At least she gets the concept sort of. She surprises all the time with things that she says. My mom loves when she says Bless you after someone sneezes.
I started back to work Wednesday. I didn’t get nearly as much done as I would have liked. I’m not sure if this Scott watching Emma thing is going to work. I may have to go into the office when he is off at least one day. Scott’s grandmother agreed to watch Emma on days he works. We had talked to another lady from our church about doing it but then we found out MawMaw lost her full-time child she watched and we feel much better about the close proximity of MawMaw’s house and giving her our money rather than someone we barely know. Plus, the last time I picked up Emma from MawMaw’s house,she said, “MawMaw’s house..fun”. So, I guess Emma likes being there.
