Yesterday: two 45 minute screaming sessions + two 2 hour naps on mommy + refusing to be held by daddy for very long + wanting to be held by mommy. all. day. + refusal to eat very much + tylenol = 1 trip to the doctor today (and one very worn out mommy last night).
Today: trip to the doctor (he’s starting to teeth. at only almost eleven weeks!) + rude nurse (how do you know he has siblings? so she kept them and gave up him? aren’t you lucky) (how about, aren’t YOU lucky, lady, that I don’t punch you in the face) + NO ear infection (yay!) + no real morning nap + rainy day at the zoo (butterfly garden!) + no real afternoon nap + formula single = projectile vomiting all over the crib, mattress, ear, pacifier, wall and floor. (I really think the formula singles are way different than the big cans – the 4 times I’ve given him one, weird digestive things happen).
The result? A very cranky baby who wants to eat NOW, even though I would only give him 2 ounces because he just threw up everywhere. If he’s fine in about an hour, he can have 2 more!!
Something’s definitely going on with Little Man…according to doc he’s perfectly healthy, just has a bit of a stubborn cold and the beginning of teething. But he’s very sleepy now, and cuddly (which he’s pretty independent, normally) and whiny. In between gorgeous huge smiles and almost-giggles, that is.
It’s like he’s having mood swings!
But I definitely feel I’ve earned “mommyhood” 🙂
