I was hoping to have something to post every weekday. I want my blog to be enjoyable to read and I (vainly) want to grow my readership. That plan has already been derailed. I know I won't post on most weekends, as I rarely even turn the computer on. I'm having a hard time thinking of things to post about daily though. I have nothing today that is worthy of a whole post, so I'm going to write some snapshots of our life lately.
Butterfly has a cold. It is so sad to listen to her stuffed-up breathing and baby cough. Even her cries are raspy. And although I have five children, I still have a hard time determining when to go to the doctor. With a baby, I always err on the side of paranoid mom. So we went to the doctor and she just has a cold. Thank goodness.
Many friends/readers have suggested eliminating or reducing dairy in Monster's diet to try to stem the asthma symptoms. It will be tough, as he gets a lot of his calories from milk and yogurt. However, one friend said switching to raw milk worked for her family, so hopefully he will like it. We'll see.
I have lost 9.2 pounds! Yippee! I'm enjoying my workouts again. The knee pain disappeared. I think it was due to not working out for too many days and then doing too much. I could have lost more weight, but I'm still having a hard time eliminating the bad things in what I eat. I've reduced soda intake, but not as much as I should. I'm not stressing about it though. I'm in a routine that is managable and likely to be sustained and that is all that matters.
We're going to a wedding this weekend where I'm likely to see people I haven't seen since high school! I got a new dress that I love, but nursing in it will be a challenge. Butterfly will take at least one bottle. I'll probably have to go out to the car and have my mom go with me to help get the dress unzipped and me covered so I can feed Butterfly when needed. I was just going to wear a skirt and shirt, but couldn't find anything I loved and so I got a dress anyway. The girls said it was their favorite too.
That's all I've got today. What do you want me to write about?
