After lying around on various surfaces of my apartment since Sunday, I finally rocked out an awesome night as a housewife. Last night, I vacuumed; did a load of laundry; gave C a bath by myself (it’s difficult, guys!); washed dishes; cleaned all our CSA veggies; and baked flour-free, egg-free, peanut butter oatmeal banana breakfast cookies. (Found them on Pinterest; C had it for breakfast and loved it.)
It is after 10:30pm and I just got done taking my shower for the day. Today was kind of crazy.
Between 8:10am and 8:25am, I woke up, made a pediatrician appointment for C, got myself ready and left for the doctor’s office for an 8:40 check-in time. (Thank you to my wonderful Hubster for getting C dressed, or I never would have made it out the door on time!) Naturally, after all that rushing we had to wait until 9:02 to get called in for the appointment. The good news is that C does not have an ear infection! His symptoms are just from his cold and other than that, he’s perfectly healthy. He’s also a svelt 12 pounds, 2 ounces now!
C and I both seem to have come down with a cold after returning from our vacation. C has some slight congestion and I think he has a sore throat. Poor baby doesn’t like taking his bottles every time and doesn’t want to nap without being held. Fortunately for C, I think the cold has hit me much harder. Yesterday, I barely had a voice. My sore throat and splitting headache are killing me, and I’m constantly in a cold sweat.
I totally felt like Superwoman yesterday. Today…not so much. Now I understand what people mean about the highs and lows of caring for a newborn. Early this morning, I came down with either the flu or some kind of food poisoning, so I’m not at my best today to begin with. I have to admit, heaving less than two weeks after a c-section is quite painful. :-/
