It’s true. N and I got the holiday ham that keeps on giving. It seems we have food poisoning or something… It’s been an ongoing thing for over a week now. We just tossed several pounds of ham leftovers after we figured it was the culprit, also tossed the spinach salad just for good measure. Still feeling yuck though, after eating the food several days ago.
First thing I thought was, can E get sick via my breast milk if I have food poisoning? Google told me the answer is no, unless my poisoning is in my blood- then she can get it through breast milk. This feels like a super mild but lingering case of food poisoning.
In the next few days we’ll be expecting the “symptoms” to go away if they don’t we’ll do the uncommon and actually go see a doctor. I just totally spared you the gruesome details, trust me you should be very thankful!
E isn’t having any real issues, unlike us. She’s been a bit fussy and sleepless, that is all. So we aren’t too worried about this little bout of whatever it is we are going through. It sure is inconvenient though.
Motherhood has once again left me feeling in a daze. As we prepare for our visit home to retrieve our 2nd car anxiety mounts and the to-do list grows. Even though we are getting good chunks of sleep at night it still feels as if we are living one very long, never ending day.
You know the feeling right? The one where you stop for a moment and can hardly believe how much time has passed… I am not a fan of this feeling at all. 6 months ago time was crawling now it is passing at warp speed!
We’ve been talking about what we can’t wait to do once we get back to Arizona… It seems the consensus is a relaxing, slow paced, fancy dinner out.
Date night out is a must considering we’ll have both sets of grandparents and many friends for babysitting. Leaving Everly with someone is going to be hard though, for everyone involved. She still has issues being away from the milk makers. LOL.
Speaking of separation anxiety, she spent the day with Mr. Mom on Saturday and is getting much better at being away from me (for small periods of time).
Turns out she sucks down her peas and sweet potatoes when she knows the milk makers aren’t home. When I’ve been giving them to her she’s lost interest and makes her “eww that is gross” face. N reports she eats them like a champ when I am gone though. Funny how that works.
It’s been damn cold and dry here! I am pretty much counting down the days until we have our 2nd car back. You know the one with heat, airbags and power locks/ windows.
Not having heat in freezing temperatures is not fun, especially with a baby and a long commute. The year and a half long, chilly sacrifice made our home buying possible though. Life is about sacrifices and priorities right?
Anyway, I hope everyone had a safe and fun new year! We had a glass of wine, talked shop and went to bed. We are party animals :-P
