As the title indicates, I am going to cover a few topics in this post since I can’t seem to find the time to post regularly.
Our little guy turned 3 months on March 21st. The time is flying by. The other day I actually thought to myself, “I miss being pregnant.” I was so ready to have the baby and yet now I feel like it went by too fast.
On Good Friday we took a little trip to the mall to see the Easter Bunny. Now I don’t remember doing this when I was a kid. I don’t even know if they had the Easter Bunny at the mall like they did Santa. But I thought it would be cute to take him and get a photo. He did well. It was pretty fast so there wasn’t any time for him to get upset, but I did not expect him to.
We aren’t doing much for Easter. My parents are coming for a visit on Wednesday so we will have a mini-celebration with them then. My mom makes goldenrod eggs for breakfast. I am really looking forward to that!
So I have a cold. And yes, Lil Pete has it too. Although I think it is affecting me more. It is really just a congested nose. I think I am just so run down from lack of sleep. I really wish little guy would sleep better. I started to feel it come on Thursday. Friday night/Saturday morning I could hear him having issues breathing through his nose, so of course that made me not want to sleep. I just wanted to make sure he could breathe ok. So Saturday morning I called the doctor and he told me to get saline drops and a Nosefrida. I had heard of it, but if you would have asked me before I had Pete, if I would ever use one, I would say NO! Well, I got it and it is so great! Works so much better than the bulb aspirator. As a result, Saturday was a much better day for him. But again Saturday night/Sunday morning he still had stuffiness. We must have been up about every 45 minutes to an hour. Mid way though the night I held him at an angle and that seemed to help for a bit, but he was gassy so still not comfortable. So needless to say, I am exhausted! He napped for maybe an hour this afternoon, but is over tired and does not want to sleep! And in addition to my being tired, I can’t breathe through my nose.
The pediatrician told me I could take Sudafed. He said it would not affect my milk supply, but some of the things I have read, says that it can. I did take some last night, but I am trying to hold off taking it during the day. I am this close to caving though. My throat is starting to dry out from breathing through my mouth. Oh how I can’t wait until my Mom gets here to help out! Hubby is great, but he has to work. Just looking forward to being able to take a shower without having to rush. 🙂
Speaking of hubby. As I have mentioned, he sings for a living. One of his songs is going to be featured on the upcoming episode of The Mindy Project on the FOX network, Tuesday, April 2 at 8:30pm central time. There is a scene at Danny’s house and it will be playing during that. He has had songs featured on NCIS, Criminal Minds, and Go On. He did have his Christmas song featured on the holiday episode of the Mindy Project last year. Oh, the song is “Good Things Come To Those Who Wait.” Hope you all get to watch and listen for it. If not, you can always watch it online. I am so proud!
That is all from here for this post. Sorry if it is a little “all over the place.” As I can’t really think too well today. I pray tonight is a better night for little guy, because that means a better night for me. But even through the exhaustion, when I see his smiling face looking up at me, it is all worth it and the exhaustion seems to disappear (for a few minutes at least).
Thanks for reading!
