Good Enough Moms
Lydia finally got a tooth. She has chewed her finger to shreds. She has been eating much better since it popped through. She's been taking 20+ oz per day instead of the usual 15-20. I was very engouraged until Friday. |
Friday was horrible. It was as bad as one of her worst days in the hospital. All I can figure is that he second tooth must be trying to get through. I pumped her full of Tylenol and Orajel. She can't have the Hyland's Teething Tablets that everyone says are so great. Nothing helped. We rocked and rocked. Finally, I rocked and she slept and I watched movies. I rocked all the way through The Girl Next Door and The Last Samurai (sp?) without stopping.
Saturday, she was all smiles and giggles and went to her first birthday party. She went with her crazy grandmother. I ran errands.
Sunday, we went furniture shopping. We bought a Hutch Cabinet and a Table and Chairs. Yeah. It's like being grown ups now. Everything we have has mostly been donated to us. Lydia liked the furniture store.
We started feeding her babyfood too. Last week, she ate bananas and didn't like them much. On Saturday, she ate a whole jar of apple sauce. Yeah. Sunday, we tried sweet potatoes. The dogs got most of that. Lydia like blowing them everywhere.
Once again, she isn't sleeping through the night. She has become really good at rolling from her front to her back. We put her to sleep on her from and she rolls right over. Then she wakes up and screams. Poop. We put her back on her belly and she does it again. This went on all night last night. Hopefully, one of two things will happen soon. Either she will learn to like sleeping on her back or she will learn to roll from her back to her front. I don't care which one happens but something has got to give.
