Days 4-7 - More Illness, But It's a Brand New Week!

Monday, March 25, 2013

Yes, no updates for the last few days. But it's a brand new week and I feel recharged again.

Here's what happened:
emoticonKeira wrapped up at her old daycare on Thursday.
emoticonThen we went for her doctor's appointment on Friday. I was surprised that the pediatrician expressed concern about her not standing or walking unassisted yet because I've heard of kids who didn't walk til 18 months.
emoticonThen she threw up and had a nasty virus all weekend which made me miss my grandmother's 90th birthday party.

So it hasn't been the most fun lately. But I did learn a lot from tracking last week. I'm starting my DietBet and feel motivated to do better and look better and most importantly, FEEL BETTER.

And it's finally starting to feel a little like spring. I also got my offer letter, at long last! So it looks like I'll be starting a new job in a couple of weeks!

    I didn't walk until close to 18 months and I'm doing just fine. She will get there when she's ready!

Congrats on the offer! Enjoy the spring time until work starts.

Oh and if you could send some spring this way please!

    So sorry about your little one! Poo! Maybe this new daycare will alleviate her fears a little and maybe she'll feel a bit more confident and step out of her shell. emoticon

    Whoooo-hooo all around! New job, tracking calories, you are on a roll! Sorry to hear about the illness over the past few days but glad you have a positive attitude! Saw you have a fitbit - I like it but like anything else it works best on days I am looking for positive reinforcement. My husband loves his. Just bought one for my dad as well. Fit all around!

    You're absolutely right, it's a new week (and it sounds like it will definitely be better than last week!)

    Yeah for the offer letter- that is really exciting!
Sorry you had to miss your grandma's birthday :( I am still not sure what DietBet is- some bet you are doing online to loose X number of lbs?
Whatever it is, you sound ready for it!!!!

  Awesome news on the new job--congrats!

And my friend's baby didn't start walking until the week after his 18 mo check up. She was getting pressure from her pediatrician, too. However, I admit to knowing NOTHING about kids and when things "should" be happening. But if Baby K is happy and thriving, I say keep doing what you're doing, Mama Karvy. You're doing a great job!

    Congratulations on the offer!!! May you have a long, rewarding career with the company/firm. I hope Keira feels better soon and not to worry- when she decides its important enough for her to get up and go she will... and then you'll be able to track all the time you spend chasing her!
Enjoy spring - its about time it got here!
