Ally is 10 weeks old, it’s been a LONG week. She had her first cold, which didn’t really look like a typical cold. She was just stuffy and it took us awhile to figure that out. Once we did though and we started feeding her in what Nick refers to as the Sauna, she was able to eat and breathe. Really we just fed her in the bathroom, which grossed Christina out a little bit. It was a good incentive to scrub that whole bathroom. Because Ally slept a lot more, we got a lot of home projects done. We have so much stuff it’s incredible. Christina managed to sell quite a few things online, which is always fun.
Just as Ally’s cold was reaching its peak, she got her 2 month shots. This was not fun. She vomited up the oral vaccine which was supposed to be the easy part. So we’re not really sure she got that one. Her actual shots went pretty smoothly. No one passed out and the only one that screamed and cried was Ally, although Mom, covered in baby vomit, was tempted to join her. Ah the joys of parenthood.
Today, Ally is finally eating somewhat normally, although we’ve been through a bottle battle. The cold has made her picky and fussy. Our normally very happy eater was fussing through every bottle. So after some bottle and nipple changes and probably $60 later, she’s back to normal. Thank goodness. We’re not sure how parents of colicky babies do it. But God is good and Ally is on the mend.
We go on our first road trip with Ally tomorrow. She’s been up North, which is about 2.5 hours each way, but this is 5 hours each way and we might not survive. Seriously, this baby doesn’t cry unless she needs something- food, nap, her mobile turned off. She’s an incredibly good baby. You put her in the car, she screams. She hates the car. So pray for us and wish us luck. Christina is IN the wedding so it’s up to Nick to watch little Ally. We’ll let you know how it all goes.
Ally is a whopping 13 pounds, 1 ounce and 23 inches tall!
