Well, after a couple of weeks of being sick with my first illness, I am finally feeling all better. My cough is gone, I don’t have to be nebulized anymore, and I am back to my old self. Although, I did tell Mommy Happy Valentine’s Day in my own special way – by projectile vomiting all over her. I am not really sure where it came from, I was just talking to her a bit while we were rocking and all of the sudden it all came up (and out!). I used to show my love by peeing on people when I was very first born, but I’ve decided that in 2008 the best way to show I care is by vomiting on the ones I love.
I went back to day care last week after being home for two weeks. I had three good days there. I seem to be starting to be better about my naps now. I am sleeping in my crib for pretty long stretches of time at day care (around an hour, sometimes a lot more), and even Mommy can put me to sleep successfully for naps most days.
Mommy is trying to wean me now. She said that since I have teeth now (which I have been known to use on her – I think I am so funny!) and I am six months and eating more and more solids that it is time to start weaning. So we are dropping one breast feeding per week, which is replaced by a bottle feeding. It is going averagely well. I’m not in love with the bottle, that’s for sure. But I don’t flat out refuse it which is good. I can usually take about 5 ounces over a period of an hour – a lot of starting and stopping in that hour. Mommy is slowly introducing me to formula by giving me thawed breastmilk that was expressed and adding one or two parts formula.
