Why I'm Tired This Week... and other random ramblings

  • Zoey has had a rough, rough week. It started with her getting fleas which lead to a flea bath (this dog HATES baths) and flea meds and horrific itching. Although the fleas are officially gone, and have been gone since that first night where we stayed up really late killing them all, she still itches like crazy from all their bites. I feel awful. Her skin is red and itchy and she can't sleep at night because it's so bad. Along with that she's had vomiting, poop issues. some of her hair is falling out and she is miserable. I feel so bad for her because there is nothing else we can do. We went to the vet the other day who said the fleas are gone but we got two different meds to help her out and we have to feed her boiled chicken and rice for the next couple of days to help her get better. I feel awful, we should have left her home that night, but I'm also tired because between her and the baby, someone is constantly up and making noise during the night

Fighting sleep
  • Bitty Baby is a mess this week. Most days she's been eating every 20-40 minutes... She's also fighting going to sleep now, even her naps. She always napped great, but this week she only catnaps and then wakes up still tired and fussy. I'm hoping this is just a phase or a growth spurt. On the bright side? She's sleeping longer at night, as in Thursday night she slept for 4 1/2 hours straight! The downside to longer night sleeps? Having to get up in the middle of the night to pump because I hurt so bad... so I didn't really get to sleep much more, but it's hopefully a sign of things to come. 
  • Speaking of Bitty Baby, she's now up to a chunky 8 pounds! I know it doesn't sound like much, but it's almost 2 pounds above birth weight... though I do find it hilarious that my almost 6-week old baby weighs less then many newborns. Whatevs, she's cute and healthy, so that's all that matters. 
  • I discovered rhythmic gymnastics and synchronized swimming on the Olympics the other day. Addicted. Completely addicted, and I'm not entirely sure why.
  • I'm stressing about next week because we have so many appointments and meetings; Monday: chiropractor. Tuesday: Breastfeeding group and Zoey's grooming appointment. Wednesday: 6 week postpartum check up (which I'm praying ends with a doctor's note to be on maternity leave the first 4 weeks of school). Thursday: meeting with my new assistant principal (at 9:20 in the morning... the earliest Fynn and I have tried to be anywhere so far). It's just a lot of things to organize, make sure I have everything for the baby and trying to be on time with it all... eeek
  • My little sister is turning 23 next Friday, which freaks me out... because that means that I'm turning 26 in less than 3 weeks... wow, we're getting old.

  1. Oh Cruze went through the same sleep thing at around 5 weeks. I thought it was going to last forever but thankfully it didn't (although with us it took some sleep training).

    I love that picture. She's a cutie!!!
