March 6, 2011

It's been a while since our last post, but we've been busy fighting germs. Charlotte was hit hard in mid February and had to stay home from daycare for two days due to a fever and vomiting. It was pretty stressful, not only because Charlotte was sick, but because Pat and I are both new to our jobs and hated missing days already. On the plus side, I got to stay home and snuggle with Charlotte for two days and Pat for an afternoon after daycare sent her home.

Charlotte shared her germs with me and Patrick, but as of this weekend we all feel pretty good! I'm just happy to be able to swallow and stay awake past 8 p.m. Woo hoo! :)

Charlotte loves to climb! Here she is scaling the nordic track.

Here's Charlotte on the day daycare sent her home. When I walked up the stairs she was sitting in the chair reading her books. So sweet, but strange to see her happy just sitting.

We've been doing lots of this. At all hours of the day.

Go Gophers!
Patrick has been letting Charlotte play with his keys. They've ended up in the toilet once, and I'm just waiting for them to disappear altogether. :)

Charlotte's eating is back to water only. We've slowed her pump rate significantly hoping that she'll stop throwing up again, but so far no luck. She did much better today, though, so maybe we're getting back on track. Time will tell.

As per GI instructions, we've been tracking her weight. It's going in the wrong direction, but with the sickness hopefully behind us she should start gaining weight.
2/12: 20 lbs 0 oz
2/20: 19 lbs 12 0z
2/28: 19 lbs 12 oz
3/6: 19 lbs 8.5 oz

We use a service called At Home Child Care when our son is sick and we really can't miss work. We've used them for the past 3 years and can't recommend them highly enough. We've always had wonderful sitters sent to our home. They do background checks on all the sitters before hand. It can be a little pricey, especially when you're paying for daycare costs on top the cost of At Home, but it's so nice to know you have a back up plan if you absolutley can't miss work. It's taken a lot of the stress out of being a working mom and it's been a life-saver for us on several occasions. I hope this brings you a little help and some support with your recent move to the Twin Cities! Here is their website:
