re - exercise: sigh. apparently my body is not quite ready to move on to bigger things. just light cleaning yesterday had my bleeding starting back up. So, I need to wait a bit longer, maybe another week, before actively walking.
That's a good idea about taking the older toddler on the walk. I hadn't thought of that! I was actually getting upset thinking about taking Finn on stroller walks w/o Nora, b/c that was OUR thing, mine and Noras, and she's already had to deal with Mommy Being Too Busy with a lot of our old activities. I just think it would damage her to see me leaving with Finn on a stroller walk and her not going along with. But that's the perfect solution!! Take her and leave Finn with Dad! Awesome. Awesome idea. Love it!!
The only sign she gives of being annoyed with the baby is when he cries. She gets frazzled and usually screams or goes, "ARGHHHH!" I try to gently remind her that I'm sorry, babies cry, and he can't talk yet to tell us what he needs. But I don't need her also screaming b/c Finn is loud enough! It only takes a minute to XYZ (change diaper, get him on the boob, etc) and she needs to just ignore him. When he's silent she loves him. She's started touching him gently and last night he was on my lap, she hopped up and was counting his toes, etc. And then she goes, "I'm gonna look for toe jam," and starts pulling apart his toes. OMG it was so cute. She's like, "Baby doesn't have toe jam, he doesn't walk yet," all matter-of-factly. Adorable.
TMI - I'm having some itching down below. It feels yeasty. Is that possible, or do you guys think it could just be tears healing/internal scuffs healing? I can't imagine putting ANYTHING inside me right now, it's too soon. How would one treat for yeast? Diflucan? That's safe while bf'ing right? Hmm. I might ask my mw if it continues.
