Addy has had a full weekend of eating new things, not sleeping, and I am almost certain we are on ear infection número tres. At my mom’s reccomendation we gave Addy a quartered pineapple core to chew on while we ate lunch. She normally will put something to her mouth, make a yucky face and never pick it up again, but this time she LOVED it. She chewed and chewed and chewed on it. I also think it may have numbed her gums a little too(if she IS teething it may have helped). So finally she is tasting new things. This morning I put a little peanut butter on a baby spoon and she loved that too. I am thinking about just grinding up what we eat and giving it to her, since she doesn’t seem to like the bland baby food.
She had been getting better about sleeping, only waking up twice a night and only nursing once, but I think her ears are hurting and she has a stuffy nose, so last night was awful! I decided to give her a little Tylenol tonight and we will be heading to the doctor in the morning. I swear we are in there every other week! Interesting tip; target brand infant Tylenol is cheaper, has a bigger bottle, has no dyes, and I am pretty sure it tastes better because she slurped it right down. We will be buying this one from now on!
My job hunt is going full swing now, and I will hopefully get a job by December. I think I am setting a good goal! Maybe I will land one sooner, we shall see.
