Happy almost weekend! Hope you have some fun holiday plans lined up.
We put most of our holiday decorations up before Thanksgiving since it was so late this year. I love having the Christmas decorations up as long as possible, how about you?
And, we added another stocking this year. Spencer and I got demoted to the small ones, so the ‘kids’ can stockpile more stock stuffers.
And, we have a fake tree. One of my favorite traditions as a kiddo was selecting a real tree with my family, so maybe we will have both in the future?
There are both generic ornaments and special ones I’ve collected over the years. I’ll show you some of my favs in a future post.
Baby It’s Cold Outside
It is bitter cold here in Omaha this weekend, so Jada and I will likely be staying inside. If it’s in the high 20′s or 30′s, I can keep her warm enough in a snow suit using the Bob Weather Weather Shield so we can walk Cooper.
I was nervous she might get too cold, but I think she was pretty comfortable!
But, single digits mean we are staying inside, so the kids will have to entertain themselves indoors.
I wonder what they talk about?
So, Jada had her first sick episode last night and talk about feeling helpless as parents.
She had not pooped in 10 days. I know. Poor kid.
She never seemed uncomfortable (as the pic above shows), and her ped assured me this was common with breastfed babies.
But, she has always been regular, so I was starting to get concerned. In the middle of her night feeding, she started vomiting. Not, spitting up, straight up vomit. Then, she had 3 more episodes of what seemed like dry heaves. Scary to watch.
We took her temp, and there was no fever. She finished nursing which I was thankful for so she wouldn’t be dehydrated. Then, she fell asleep. Completely exhausted. After speaking with the urgent care nurse, we decided no ER visit and monitored her all night. She actually slept on Spencer for half the night.
After her 3 a.m. feeding, she seemed like herself, so we put her back in the crib.
The next morning, still no poop! She had to be backed up, so Spencer picked up some suppositories to get things going. One did the trick, and immediately she was relieved!
Today, she is happy and napping more contently than she has in days!
I’m relieved for her! I would rather be sick than watch her go through that.
What is your favorite holiday tradition?
Do you collect ornaments?
