Doctor appt. went great. He is 18# and 27 inches long. He now has a yeast infection on his penis. I told the doctor what it was and he agreed! The doctor hadn't seen him before but wished us luck on adopting him. Kel got his shots and is now caught up. He is such a good baby. Dave has to take him to visitation tomorrow by himself, since I have to take Isaiah to the dentist. He is so excited about going! My boy is so weird. How many other kids get excited about going to the doctor? He wants a sticker so he can give it to his baby.
Dave took Kel to the visit and it went oddly. Birth father showed up at the end. He looked about 16. The odd thing was that birth mom totally ignored him and they didn't tell Dave to stay with the baby. So the guy came to see his child and didn't get to. I am wondering if he wanted a visit before he signs off his rights. Birthmom says that he dumped her when she was five months pregnant. He has never expressed an interest in kel before.
We have decided that if we don't get to keep Kellen then we are not going to do the foster-adopt thing again. I can't emotionally handle it and neither can Isaiah. It's to hard.
Today visit went fine, although grandma wanted to know if we let the baby play in the snow. I told her that he saw it but he gets so cold that we didn't play in it. She said that she always let her daughter play in the snow as a baby until she turned purple from cold! Little scarey! Halloween went great. Isaiah looked so great as a unicorn and Kel was Tigger. My boys are so cute!
My computer has been crazy and It has been driving me crazy that I couldn't post here! We had a weird pop up virus. When we were off line we would still get pop ups. Then we couldn't get online at all. It was weird.
Our visits with birthmom and grandma are now only once a week per their request. They have busy schedules and it is easier to do one time a week two hours instead on twice a week one hour each. I hope they mark this down as odd. They only want to see the baby once a week? They also complain that they are bored in the room when they visit! I sure hope and pray we get to keep him. We love every minute with him. He is growing so fast. He wears 12-18 month clothes. It is so weird having a big baby. Isaiah was so small and wore the size he was supposed to at each month. By next year Kel and Isaiah are going to wear the same size!
copied from my screw up on the board.
Dave went to a fact finding hearing on Friday. They were going to determine who was going to keep Kel. At the last minute birth mom decided to try to get her ****' together and filled out a parenting plan. So she has until jan 23 to take classes and prove she is a good mom. It doesn't matter that she shook him, cursed at him repeatedly and told everyone she wanted to kill him. She gets to jump through the hoops and get him back. I knew it wasn't going to be easy! On the positive side we get to keep him through the holidays. I know that I am still his mommy until the end of January!
I have been feeling sick I feel queasy in the morning and throw up every night! The middle of the day I feel great! Everyone wants me to take a preg. test, but I never have a regular cycle and if I ovulated it was only a week ago. Yet another thing for me to obsess over!
visitation was cancelled today! They called yesterday to say that they would be to sick to come today We bought a car yesterday. A cute Dodge neon. I love it. Although they freaked us out when I signed papers today. They said the bank hadn't approved the loan yet, they were waiting. So why did they have us sign all the papers, put down money and a trade in car, and drive the car off the lot yesterday morning? It seems very odd. Dave is stressing, I am sure that everything is fine, they had to have been confident, otherwise they wouldn't have let us take the car.
Kel has got a sinus infection again. He and I are both sniffing and sneezing. I am still getting sick over the slightest smell. I take a P test tomorrow. I hope and pray it is a BFP. It would make the holidays so much better.
Oh course my test was a BFN, I should have known better. I need to call the doc and get some tests done and figure out why I am so sick to my stomach.
Visitation was cancelled again! It snowed last night and they didn't want to drive in it. We painted snow people all over our windows yesterday. The goddess must have liked it! I am thinking about finding a church in the area. I am really interested in the Universal Utilitarian. I need somewhere to go and talk about spirituality without having the bible shoved down my throat.
The baby is sick AGAIN! His rash came back this week and now he is throwing up. Looks like its back to the doctor for us. It upsets me that I do all the mommy things like care for him when he is sick yet the woman who hurt him and called him names is the one who has all the rights. Life is so not fair.
Birth mom did not come to visitation, she was still sick. Only grandma came. Grandma gave me a box of clothes for Kel. They smelled so bad of smoke that I had an asthma attack in the car, and they were in the trunk! I went through them and almost all of the clothes were 3-6 or 6-9 months. He is a big boy, he came to us with 6-9 being almost to small. So out of a big box I took three things out to use and a few things out to show him what he wore as a baby before he came to us. I did this with Isaiah too. I asked Grandma what she wanted me to do with to small clothes and she said to give them away. I am going to give them to the social worker for the clothes bank and cover my butt. Grandma also gave him latex balloons to play with and take home?????? The visitation supervisor just shook her head and told us to just throw them away. The woman acts like this kid is five instead of nine months.
This week was wonderful. No visitation to worry about and we had a good time with our families. Kel is really attached to us. He cried when left with in laws when we walked out of the room. He is also military crawling really well. He started eating well again too. Today though he started getting sick again. He spiked a fever and his nose started running again. The child is ALWAYS sick. I hope he doesn't go back to b/m just because of her smoking. He would be in a horrible environment for someone with sinus issues. We have another visit tomorrow. I hope he is feeling better. I hate to take him out when he is sick.
