My no good very bad afternoon
LM had a great day today in that he had a great OT session where he put his own spoon in his mouth, is starting to get the hang of the sippy cup, and sat at the snack table with two other friends and babbled and ate puffs together. I am so proud.
However, it kind of went downhill after that. What happened?
- I started my birth control pills after aunt flo on sunday. I really need to change the pill I’m on as it gives me stomach issues and makes me feel crappy once I come back on them after a week off. Anyways, I had something for lunch that sometimes bothers my stomach a tiny bit. But since my stomach was already irritated with the pills it bothered me a lot. I was alone with LM and had to scoop him up and bring him in the bathroom with me. No fun, but he was really good. My stomach is still not quite right.
- I went to the grocery store today so that LM didn’t get a nap this afternoon. I should start going home and letting him have an hour nap and then waking him up to go to the grocery store. However, if I had done that I would have had my stomach issues in the grocery store. Glad that didn’t happen.
- I decided that since LM was doing so well I wanted to try making him some sweet potato. I peeled and cubed the sweet potato into small pieces and then microwaved it according to the net’s directions – 5minutes and they burned. I tried microwaving for two minutes and they sorta burned. I tried doing it for one minute and they didn’t cook right. I tried putting them in one of LM’s tupperwear thingies with water and I burned a hole through the bottom of it and left a mark on the microwave plate. Gah. I said s this and I will try steaming it some other time.
- Since LM was doing so well with puffs I tried giving him a yogurt melt. I should have tried giving it to him in smaller pieces. He ended up gagging and threw up all over his high chair tray. At least it wasn’t all over the seat, that thing is a pain to clean. Sometimes I wonder if I should just feed him in his bumbo chair since I can just wipe it down and there are no layers. I cleaned him up and put him in his third outfit of the afternoon (first change he had a little pee on him) and tried to wrangle him all by myself.
After that it went ok. I fed him his solids – 4oz of pinneaple pear puree and 7oz of formula. After that he fell asleep and I got to breathe a sigh of relief. Hubs came home soon after and took over. Thank goodness.
