Zmombie- mother running on lack of sleep obtaining zombie like status.
Truman was 10...
We had Tru's 2 month well check this AM and met the nicest doctor!! I've decided that she will be the doctor he sees each time we go!
She was super thorough and she checked out T for tongue tie and she says he has it. I've been trying to get him to stick his tongue out at me for a couple weeks now and he won't stick it out past his gums.
She referred him to an ENT and we go next week. :-/
I'm HOPING this will resolve a bit of his frequent nursing too.
Speaking of gums, Tru is teething! I'd wondered why he'd been drooling so much and our Doc said that's what's going on! I'm excited/nervous. I really didn't think this whole teething thing would start so soon.
How our new *favorite* pediatrician just saved James & I hundreds of dollars ...
Instead of spending 200$ a month on prescription Prevacid we can now get it OTC
Apparently it's the same dosage!
However now we have to break apart the capsules & let it sit in a bit of breast milk (say in a baby spoon) then feed it to him! Wah-lah! Big money SAVED!!
Tru's weight is still improving! He weighed 11 lb 6 oz!! This just tickled me to death. I'm so glad he's gaining weight better than he was before his medication!
Lastly on the ped apt.
Talk about a soul sucking experience.
Ugh. The look on his face.
I really didn't want to do it, but there have been too many outbreaks of diseases a in our area. I just can't imagine Tru getting meningitis or TB when it can so easily be prevented.
He cried, I cried, we cried together. We nursed, he slept, and all is better now.
More proof that I'm subhuman
We had Colby Beth's bachelorette party this past weekend and what a blast it was!
Darling, saint, sweetheart Aunt Mollie took care of Tru while I went out for the very first time. It was Devine.
I. Was. Ready.
