Hey peeps! Looks like we’re having late coffee today 🙂
If we were having coffee today, I’d tell you that it’s been a fairly quiet week around here, and that was a nice reprieve. Albert and I went to his specialist appointment on Monday and while there weren’t any answers, it was good to know that his condition is stable. We now have another specialist to go see as we start the process of looking for a diagnosis.
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that J has been unsually clingy this week. I’m not sure what’s going on, but every time we’d drop him off at school, he started to cry and wanted hug after hug after hug. His teachers told us that during the day he’d tell them he was sad and that he missed his Mommy and Daddy. Breaks my heart when he’s upset like that, but I really don’t know what’s going on. N did bring home a mild cold last week, which she graciously passed on to Baba and Baby J, so it may be that J just wasn’t feeling all that great.
I’d tell you that I’m really excited for the start of Project Sewn next week! There’s an amazing lineup of designers this season. I have my first outfit done for the sew along, but just need to get Albert to take some photos for me — hopefully this weekend. Then I need to seriously get cracking on my remaining outfits, which I haven’t started yet! I do have all my materials though, so that’s something.
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that I’m getting really tired of this Polar Vortex crap that’s been hitting us all winter. We haven’t had a ton of snow the last month or so (knock on wood), but this winter has been much, much colder than is typical around here. I’m really hoping the groundhog doesn’t see his shadow on Sunday and we at least get an early spring.
Speaking of Sunday — Baby J will officially be 5 months old on Sunday!! He’s such a sweet little doll-baby, and it’s so hard to believe that he’s almost 5 months old. He still doesn’t roll over with any regularity yet — he did it once, kind of on accident, and hasn’t repeated since — so I’m hoping he hits that milestone soon. He gets carried around after brother and sister so much that it’s not really surprising. AND he still hasn’t cut that first tooth — I told you it would take a good two months for it to pop through!
Baby J is still exclusively breastfed, which is more than I could say with my other 2 by 5 months. But Baby J and I are still plugging along just fine. I do have to break into my stash most days to get enough milk for the three 6-oz bottles I leave for him every day, but I have a lot of stash left and I’m producing WAY more at 5 months than I did with either of my other two at this age. I have my fingers crossed that I can make it through to 6 months without having to use formula to fill up the bottles. Then I think we’ll be home free once he starts on solids and his daily breastmilk intake starts to decline. Wish me luck!
If we were having coffee, what would you tell me?
