So this past week I have been babysitting. As mentioned in the previous post, my sister-in-law Bridget came to visit with her son, Eli. She left to go spend some time with her mom in Houston, and then this past week from Sunday to Saturday she and my brother Whitney went to Peru to do some sightseeing, and her mom and I split up the time watching Eli. I had him from Tuesday to Friday.
My mom flew into town late Tuesday night to help too. It's been really fun, but busy and tiring. I've had no time for my naps, much less time to blog. Sorry to all those who faithfully check my blog.
Eli was a good baby, but between him and Carter, well man... it was busy. Eli was a little sick Wednesday, and then Carter wasn't feeling well Thursday. By Friday Carter was getting really sick of Eli. He was super emotional from being sick the day before and hence very territorial. He would even get upset if I tried feeding Eli a bottle. If there is one thing I cannot handle, it's whiney kids, and Carter was B A D !!!
Eli left Friday afternoon, and my mom is still in town hanging out. She'll be here till Wednesday. She might extend her ticket, but we haven't decided for sure on that yet. My mom has been a little sick with a headache, so we haven't been able to do much yet, but we have high hopes. Last night we went out to eat at this seafood place in town. It was really good.
For some reason I have been craving crab legs and lobster lately. WHY?? Now I know I can't have much pregnant, but seeing as this will be a one time thing, last night I spoiled myself and got snow crab. Mmmm mmm. I have tons leftover because it takes awhile to open those suckers up, so I get to have more today.
So that is what I've been up to. Carter hasn't been sleeping good the past few days either, which means I'm past exhaustion with no naps and not good night sleep. On the bright side, Carter went to the Dr.'s on Wednesday and they said his hand was good enough to take the brace off. YAY! They said it's not completely healed, but that it was healing and past the point of permanent damage, so the lucky kid can take off the brace. It was great news, especially since Carter had just learned how to take his brace off and WOULD NOT keep it on those last two days.
Oh yeah, and apparently his blood work came back from having it taken a couple of weeks ago, and he's anemic, and mine came back from an appoinment earlier this week and my thyroid is acting up some more (I have Hypothyroidism). Go team.
So that's it!
