So I have been thinking and thinking about what I want to write about for my next post, and I have total writes block! This can't be happening! I am sure it is nothing more than the haze of meds and other things flying around in my head. The past few weeks have been hard ones for me with a cold that just would not go away. I was on 1 round of antibiotics and it didn't seem to clear it up. Then on Valentine's Day night I spiked a fever of 103.8 and could NOT get it to come down. After a call to the doctor in the morning and a trip to the hospital for a flu test and a chest x-ray I got a call that I had pneumonia. I got another antibiotic and steroid to help with the breathing. So I spent the next 4 days in bed and not even able to take care of Noah. Finally by Tuesday I was able to go back to work, which took everything out of me to make it through the day. That Friday I had a follow up at the doctor and ended up on another round of steroids and 2 different inhalers; she said things didn't seem to be clearing up. I am finally starting to feel a little bit better. I am still having breathing issues at time but it is much better and less often.
So with all that going on I have really not had alot of time to think about the blog; so I am just going to post a Noah update.
He is getting so big and had a major temper. I think right now we may be going through some separation anxiety, especially with me. He is fine as long as I am in the room,but as soon as I leave he has a total melt down. I am sure alot of that is because Joe drops him off at daycare and I pick him up so he isn't used to me leaving him. In the past 7 days he has gotten 4 teeth that have come through completely and looks like 2 more are ready to break the skin. So I am sure that is not helping. He is a climber, and will climb on anything he can. Even his toys with wheels so I see some hospital trips in our future! He is starting to get a little braver and will leave go to turn and step like a 1/2 step to a step to get you or grap something else but no full blown walking. At times I feel like I am doing something wrong as a parent because he was so late in getting teeth and isn't walking. And won't even hold his own bottle, all of which he can do but won't. Finally I realized it is nothing I am doing wrong and he will do it when he wants to. We work with him on it and that is all we can do. He is a happy healthy baby who is well adjusted so I have to be doing something correct.
So on a side note, my blog was featured on a website called Mom at Last, I have a button for it on the side so stop by and check it out.
Also this is a great site, they have so many article on it and many resources for adoption. Like the Webinar they are having in March. It is a Webinar to help with resources for adoption, the one in March will have a guest speaker from Gifts of Adoptions. I know having received a grant for some of the cost of our adopton was a big thing and any information you can get is always good to have.
Here is a link to it as well.
Have a great day
