*sigh* Another day another blog. I wonder if I’ll ever get tired of this? Isaac had his one week check up today and he’s already 8 pounds 9 ounces!! He was 8 pounds at birth then only lost 2 ounces so in the last week he’s gained 11 ounces, that’s nuts. Silas got big really quick and I’m wondering if Ike is on the same path. Silas was 20 pounds at 4 months. Fat babies. Dr. gave me a prescription for Isaac’s bum so it can be cleared up quicker. I was glad to have it even though the new cream was working. I can’t believe how much two little tubes of cream cost me…30 bucks. Goodness.
I swear God was sparing my life today. This world is full of bad bad bad drivers. Old ladies driving the wrong way on one way places, people riding the lines, people in big SUV’s taking up both right and left turning lanes, poor mailmen almost getting run over. The list goes on. Bad drivers really drive me crazy!! Especially the ones who don’t get to freeway speed when merging onto the freeway, or slowing down before getting onto the freeway exit. GRRRR. Ha ha…I swear that I’m the best driver in the world and everyone else needs lessons.
I’m still feeling rather anti-social. If you’ve called and I haven’t answered it’s just because I don’t wanna, nothing against you. I just had a baby and I’m hormonal. I’m feeling a bit better about it today though. I don’t feel much like visiting either. My mastitis is completely gone, I proudly told the doctor today how I took care of it myself. He was wearing some very tight tweed pants. I also feel totally healed, although I know I’m probably not. If I wasn’t still bleeding I’d think I was all good. I so didn’t feel this way with having Silas. Over a month after I had him we took him to Mantioba and the whole flight I was in agony from having to sit so long. I couldn’t even sit down for an entire supper with the family, I was in sooo much pain. I’m still so much in awe about the difference it makes. I love delivering without forceps. Another amazing thing is that I’m not itchy!! For those of you who don’t know, I had this amazingly dreadful rash that came about 5 days after Silas was born. It soon got worse and worse. I’d just cover myself in Gold Bond and cry. One doc didn’t do anything to help me (I hate her) but then I finally saw my doc who gave me some super amazing antihistamines and I was much better after that. It was torture!! I was sooo scared I’d get it again but I’m not feeling itchy at all so I’m good.
I didn’t realize how comfortable my bed really was. I got it off of freecycle when I was pregnant so I never fully felt its wonder until now. My goodness I love it. For those of you who don’t know what freecycle is you should google it and find the online group for your city, it’s so helpful to get rid of and get free stuff! Like new pillow top mattresses!
Anyway, I think I have talked enough. Have a nice day!
