I didn’t talk about it on Friday because I was a nervous wreck but at our pediatricians appointment we found out Brooke had lost 11 ounces. I felt absolutely awful. She was having a really hard time waking up and staying awake to eat and so after we found out she lost weight we did everything possible to make her gain weight. We were feeding her non-stop.
I set my alarm during the night to wake her up every 3 hours to feed her and do you want to know something weird? I actually really looked forward to my next alarm clock wake up. This is coming from the girl that spent her summer sleeping in every morning until 11. It doesn’t hurt to have this be your view when you wake up. Palm trees right outside your window makes you feel like you are always on vacation.
The doctor wanted to see her again the next day (Saturday) and I was so worried that she might have continued to lose weight. SHE GAINED 4 OUNCES!!! The doctor was hoping for 1-2 ounces but she is already an overachiever and went up 4.
If she could eat ice cream I would take her out for an ice cream cone at Baskin Robins to celebrate how proud we are of her but instead I will just eat one. (Reenactment of our happy weighing once she had all of her clothes on again).
Subway. I learned something new about Subways in California… they don’t do the point cards to earn free food?!?! Maybe the guy at the register was kidding but he said all of California doesn’t participate in that? With how many times a week that I go to Subway this is going to have a huge impact on me.
My mom enables my candy addiction more than anyone. I have to find a new person to supply me now that we are separated.
My mom left yesterday and Billy, Brooke and I are all mourning her departure. Thanks for everything mom and we will pick you up again in the airport next weekend (I am trying to brainwash her into coming again next week).
Dinner didn’t happen until 10 and Billy made us egg and turkey sandwiches.
Finished off with a cup of frosted mini wheats. For the first time in forever we have the real version of frosted mini wheats and not the off brand version. I am afraid I will never be able to go back to the cheaper stuff, some things should not be messed around with and cereal is one of those things.
Dessert and dinner eaten while staring at Brooke with a million things around us to unpack. Who is going to come over this morning for an unpacking party? I will make everyone pancakes and fresh orange juice.
I am trying my hardest to not post every Brooke picture of the 500 a day that I take on the main blog but if you want to see more I just posted some HERE!!!!
What was the last kind of cereal that you had?
What is the view outside of your bedroom window?
Is your Sunday going to be busy, relaxing or a little bit of both?
Do you wake up during the night or do you sleep through the whole night?
