We've had an alright weekend. Jonah did a lot of spitting up and had one gusher yesterday, but he ate 26 ounces overall.
My mom watched Jonah for several hours and Matt and I were able to go out yesterday afternoon. We saw The Blind Side and then went to eat at Ham's. We were going to go out on Friday night but decided to wait until Saturday afternoon because of the snow.
Kathryn and Sarah are going to watch him tonight, and we are going to the Wake vs. NC State basketball game. Matt's dad got us season tickets as an early Christmas present, but we haven't been able to get to many because of needing to get Jonah in bed. I'm trying hard to release some control and let other people watch him more. It's not that I don't trust other people. It's just that I know how challenging feeding him is, and I don't really want other people to have to deal with that. But they assure me they don't mind, so I'm trying to let go. And when he's gushing like he was, me not being here is just not an option. Hopefully no gushers tonight. It went well with Mom yesterday. He saved his gusher just for me. :)
This was my status last night: Just took a long bath. Now I smell like pretty flowers... much better than the baby vomit I've been covered in all day. MUCH better. Yep, that's right, friends... a very vomitous day. He may or may not have puked in my face, in my hair, and down my neck. I couldn't rightly say. Generally, he's doing better on the Soy and eating more of it, but we're getting some Peptamen Jr into the pharmacy that his Pediatrician wants us to try. It is a whey based formula, but has no lactose. I don't know if I'll try it right away or just stay on the Soy for now since he seems to be doing better. I may do half and half and see how that goes. I haven't decided yet. The Peptamen does come in vanilla so that may make him like it better. He sure did like the bottles with Pediasure better.
I gotta run. We need to set up for tomorrow's dressing change and get some other chores done before we leave. Oh... I did try some Dora yogurt this morning and gave him a few bites of the soft part of my Crescent Roll, and he definitely seemed more interested than he was two months ago. I really need to go to the grocery store. We have plenty of pureed baby food in a jar, but not much on the side of soft, solid big people foods he could eat. Ugh... so much to do so little time. Channeling my inward Scarlett O'Hara... I can't think about that today. I'll think about it tomorrow. After all, tomorrow is another day.
