When talking to another mother at church this morning about Parker she said -
"The days are long, but the seasons are short."
My goal is to hold onto that.
Even when the days are long and difficult - I still want to enjoy every moment with Parker - because I know that these days will go by quickly.
With everything in me, I am going to try not to wish them away.
I want to worry less and love him more.
That's the goal.
One day at a time.
As for a little update:
This weekend his definitely been better than last weekend. We were on the go a lot with graduation parties and spending time with friends, and he was way more content. I think my little man is like his mom and dad, and likes to be on the move!
He sleeps a lot better in his infant seat and with a lot of background noise.
So whatever works right?
When we're at home I still try to put him in his crib for his naps.
AND - today he actually slept in his crib for 1 1/2 hrs!
We put in a wedge thing and put a blanket over the window to make it darker. I am not sure if either of those two things made any difference, or if it was just a fluke! haha I am hoping for more long naps in our little man's future.
As for the reflux - I am not sure if I have noticed much difference with the Zantac.
I called on Friday and told them that he was still squirming and arching his back while he ate, and they upped his dose. We're supposed to call back tomorrow and let the Dr. know if we see any difference - and really I haven't seen much.
So there's the update on our little man.
It's crazy how I can be equally frustrated, exhausted, and in love with him all at the same time.
Some other things going on -
on Thursday night I am joining Eric and some of the graduating seniors for a really fun night. I would say what we're doing, but we're leaving it as a surprise for the seniors. Some wonderful friends are going to watch Parker and we're going out! I am really excited.
Then, on Saturday my parents are coming up to spend some time with Parker while Eric and I attend a wedding. I am excited for Parker to get to spend more time with grandparents ... and I feel like going to a wedding with Eric will almost be like a little date!
It's crazy how much I used to take spending time with Eric for granted - and now I will cherish the quiet and alone time we have.
That's about it! Baby P is sleeping in his swing and I'm off to watch a movie with Eric :)
