I just realized that I’m probably coming off as a little bipolar after my last post, but you know,we have our bad days and we have our good days. Yesterday just happened to be a great day!
We had Jacon’s 2 month appointment on Wednesday morning. He weighed in at a whopping 11 pounds 6 ounces (a whole pound smaller than his brother!) I told the doctor about how grumpy he’s been and questioned him about reflux. He was really hesitant to give me anything but I quickly convinced him… I told him that if things didn’t change I would stop giving it to him. So he prescribed Zantac, which I practically lived off of when I was pregnant with Caden… heartburn city! Anyway, we started giving it to him twice a day and he’s a whole new baby. Sure, he cries occassionally, but NOTHING like before! Thank the Lord for drugs! 🙂
So, I wanted to take Jacob’s pictures yesterday too, but I had no one to go with me. Was I really going to attempt going to JCPenny alone with a toddler and a baby??? That’s way out of my comfort zone, but I did it anyway. Even though they took forever to get us in and then even longer once our pictures were done, Caden held it together and so did I. There was no yelling and no mental breakdowns… I wasn’t even sweaty! There was only minimal crying on Caden and Jacob’s part, but we walked out with a ton of portraits for a little over $8 and even stopped at Hot Dog on a Stick on our way out! Yay me!
Finally, just when I thought my day couldn’t get any better, Jacob went and slept all night long!!! I put him down at 8:00 pm and he didn’t wake up until 5:00am!!! Wowie! I feel rested and ready to conquer the day! Maybe that’s why I’ve been having a hard time, I was just tired! Haha!
Since my camera got stolen, here’s some random pictures of my Sis and my boys at the beach. If you mom’s out there need a good beach to take your toddlers to, try Mother’s Beach in Long Beach. See the waves behind Caden? That’s right, there are no waves!! Caden had such a good time. There’s a playground too!
