~ Try not to judge us, but Emily has been sleeping in her swing since....well, pretty much since week 3 when the colic and reflux started. I know, I am a terrible parent. But seriously, we needed sleep and it was the only place she would sleep. Yesterday I was looking at the Baby Sleep Site (they have some really great tips) and realized that I should probably start breaking her of this habit. So I tried to put her down for her afternoon nap in her bassinet. Crying (hysterical crying) ensued and I caved and got her out and put her in her swing. Fail. I kept reading and decided to try again when Steve got home. She cried for maybe 5 minutes and then just passed right out! Success! Then we got really brave and decided to put her down for the night at 7:00 in her bassinet- she totally slept- until 3:00am and then ate and went back to sleep until 7:55 this morning!! Fingers crossed, we may have broken her habit of the swing!
~ So remember my post from Monday? Well, that hasn't been going so well. Food and water wise, I am kicking ass. Exercise wise I am sucking big time. I haven't done one lick of physical activity besides playing on the floor with Em and running back and forth around the house. Oh well. There is always the rest of the week.....(who am I kidding?) I have been using myfitnesspal.com to track my calories and such. I can do it online and on my phone so that has helped a lot.
~ Pumping is still happening, I got about 3.5 oz yesterday. I'm not sure if it will ever get back to where it was or how long I should give it, but I'll keep pumping away.
~ I freaked myself out by googling "my baby will only turn her head to the left". Turns out something called torticollis is pretty common in babies and looks and sounds just like Emily. We are taking her to a chiropractor tonight and hopefully with that and PT she will be good as new in no time.
~ Tomorrow night we are having dinner with a couple that Steve has been friends with for a long time (I've met them once or twice) and I'm excited to get out of the house!
~ It has been hard for me to get used to Eastern time/ PA television programming/ the local news people. Let me explain. It's dark at 7am when I'm watching the Today Show, in IL the sun is up at this time. Prime time TV starts at 8pm here, in IL it starts at 7pm. Wheel of Fortune is on at 7:30pm here, in IL I think it's on at 5:30 or 6:00. Also, the Ellen show is on in the morning and Hoda and Kathy Lee are on in the afternoon- it's the complete opposite in IL (not that I watch any of that garbage....). The local TV news anchor is so spray tanned he looks orange, this is just weird.
Happy Thursday everyone!
