There have been a couple times when I have been holding you in the last few weeks and I have had tears come to my eyes because I'm so grateful and amazed at what miracles you are!
So, what have the last few weeks been like? Poor Harris had his circumcision almost four weeks ago and I couldn't even stay in the procedure room because I felt so bad for you and I couldn't stand to hear you cry! Goldie and I went into another room while daddy stayed with you. You have healed very well, but the first day was a little hard on you. We would squeeze tons of Vaseline all over your diaper and on your cut so that you would be more comfortable and you were a champ. You're such a good, brave boy. On the same day you had your circumcision, your sweet sister Goldie was having a really hard time eating because she was so congested. Every time I would feed her a bottle with my breastmilk fortified with formula, she would cough and choke. It was heartbreaking to see her so hungry and trying again and again to eat but not being able to!
I had the doctor weigh her and she had lost some weight since her last visit which is not normal at all. I could tell she didn't feel good and she was starting to get bags under her poor little eyes. She was so hungry and couldn't eat! I felt so helpless because I had tried a cool mist humidifier, saline drops, suctioning out her nose with the Nose Frida and a bulb, sleeping her at an incline...you name it. The doctor told us that he would write a prescription for nasal suction at the hospital but that seemed like a very temporary fix. I wanted to know what was CAUSING the congestion. I went back to the doctor a few days later because you had blood in your poop, Goldie. I felt so bad for you. Your sweet little eyes looked so exhausted and I was getting very worried about you. We came to the conclusion that you were allergic to milk. I stopped eating anything dairy and within a couple days it made a really big difference.
- Harris' squeaky cries. It breaks my heart!
Freshly Picked came out with a less expensive version of their moccs here! The soft soles are really good for baby's feet when they are learning how to walk.
