Blah, blah, icky blah.
Just had to get that out!
Eli has been asking to nurse often and hardcore... getting a decent amount of colostrum just thrills him and it feels like every other word out of his mouth is "Nursie-nursie!" Thankfully I found my tube of Lansinoh two nights ago, so I'm not in agony anymore. At least, not when I remember it. :LOL
Three nights ago, Eli woke up screaming and obviously in pain from something. Mike gave him some tylenol and some rescue remedy and he went back to sleep. The next evening when he got tired, he went to Mike and asked for "A milk-milk [what we call his bottles of soy] and medicine, please".
Something's definately bothering him. I really really hope it's not migraines, and I also hope that there's something we can do about it! I don't really want him to have tylenol every night before he goes to sleep, kwim?
Yesterday, my mom and I went to a bunch of garage sales. I had a great time looking around, and bought a few nifty toys for cheap (we finally have some duplo blocks!
) but apparently nobody has baby girls in the summer. I could find loads of boy clothing in every size from preemie to 10, but the girl's stuff was seriously limitied. I think the smallest size I could find anything in was a 6-9 month, and that definately won't work (unless NewBean is a butterball, which I'm inclined to doubt). I'm still really bummed, because after going through Eli's clothing I've determined that most of it can't possibly be misconstrued for feminine or even gender-neutral. Because Eli was so 'pretty' (still is!
) all of his clothing has always been distinctly masculine. I saw something really adorable in the mall which I may break down and buy for NewBean to come home in... assuming there's anything *to* break down after we buy some bookshelves with our tax refund.
I was told several times that I look too small to be due this summer... it's so strange, because I was pregnant with Eli over the summer and people couldn't believe that I was only in the second trimester. From about 18 weeks on, people were saying things like "I hope you don't have that baby here!!", whereas this time, I get "Really? You're due in 2 months? You must be having a small baby!" It's strange how you can carry so differently each time, but still measure the same way. With Eli, as with NewBean, I measured right on target for dates at every appoinment. However, I've been wearing some shortalls from last pregnancy which fit like skins at 25 weeks with him but are very comfortable even when buttoned this time.
Oh, and being out in the sun all day, I naturally got a sunburn.
: This morning, I have lovely brown spots on my cheeks. *sigh* I suppose that sunscreen isn't a luxury item after all.
Eli did not burn at all, he just got darker and darker. :LOL
