On a whim 2 weeks ago my dad called and asked if he could come and visit. He arrived today and on a whim back I decided to join him on part of his trip to FL. So he will be here and I have lots to do to get ready to drive with the 3 kids to FL on Sat, we get home on the 22nd. DH can't come so this will be a road trip alone for me with all 3.
Yesterday was Heaths 5 months well baby visit.
He was 16lbs 3oz and 27 inches long. They measured him 3 times to make sure 27 inches was right. Head was 43cm.
He seems to be doing well. I figured out he has a tomato allergy like Daddy. He is colic and it can last hours on end of just screaming and gas (projectile vomiting at each feeding for 24 hours after) if I eat any. I thought he maybe had reflux but going back to the diet diary looks like even things like soup with tomato in the broth is causing it. I am going to have to do more then just no sauce or katchup and fresh tomatoes but start reading labels and get myself 100% off tomato products and see if the reflux stops.
OT: I have a new found love for wool yarn.
112 yikes that is the # of events we down loaded today from the last 6 weeks.
We had an ENT appointment at 10am. Heath in cloths and cloth diaper was 16lbs 10oz!!!!!!! So I am sure around 16 naked. She told us she got the fax about his download from today and his events where considered normal. He had 2 that where due to low hart rate and 4 due to breathing but they where less then 20 sec so no major events.
It is just so overwhelming at times. His respiratory supply alone are over 300 a month after our insurance. And I have not even thought about the bills sitting on my table for 11k when he had his 5 day hospital stay. They did tell me at WIC that I should get a package being a BF mom since he is not taking FF that if the baby is on Medicaid I can using his number as the BF mom get his benefits until he is 12 months.
He is always happy. Open this blog entry up to see the video. Thanks to all of you who have been reading.
