Hubby came home from work on Friday with a stuffy nose, figured it was allergies.
By Saturday night, it was worse.
On Sunday, I was at a specialty baby boutique, and mommy-gut told me to buy the special suction aspirators for baby's nose that you use mouth suction to get the gunk out - much more practical and productive than the bulb suction aspirators.
Glad I did, because Elliott has his first cold... and I was up at 2am sucking snot out of his nose, because he was having a hard time breathing while nursing.
My poor little man. He's having a crash-nap now, and since I need to be quiet, I can tell he would easily be roused, hey - a blog!
Nutrition is still bad. I don't know why I can't wrap my head around it. I'm bringing less crap in the house, but I still don't have the gumption to chop some dang veggies to eat.
Now that Elliott is bigger I really have no excuse. I think I need to do some inner exploring to figure it out.
Fitness is amazeballs. I'm in week 7 of C25K - which means 25 minutes straight running. My gym membership resumed last week, and I was there on Sunday - had a pretty big eye-opening moment, let me tell you a story...
Most of you would remember that I kept going to the gym for Zumba, agility, etc. all the way to the end of my pregnancy. When I was at the gym on Sunday, doing my agility drills for the first time in months, a man came up to me that I didn't recognize and motioned for me to take out my earbuds.
I thought he was going to ask what I was doing (I'm the only person I think that does them, and in my absence, the staff removed the tape markings, but there is permanent marking on the carpet haha), but instead he told me it was great to see me back, thought it was awesome how I kept up my fitness during pregnancy, and asked about Elliott. That was COOL.
Then, a lady from the Zumba class I frequented came up to me and started discussing the same things. I had left an impact. On strangers. Nice!!
Today we were going to go to the gym and Elliott would have had his first time at the child care, but he's sick. I'm due for a rest day (it was going to be tomorrow) and aching all over, so it's best we just stay home and focus on him being comfortable.
He's awake! I'll toss ya some pics, then I'm out!
Here's a professional newborn shots - I wish I could show more, but Spark isn't letting me upload them due to file size:
And his most recent age picture:
And 500 interwebz to the person who understands this pop-culture reference:
He's getting big and strong!
Alrighty - little man is looking at me like - "feed me, and maybe suck my nose out again, Mommy!"
He's still giving me some smiles at least... my sweet little boy!
