Well, things just got harder around here.
Up until 4 days ago, Tristan was the perfect baby. He has been fussy ever since. It's obvious he's having issues with gas. He's also really fussy while nursing and has screamed more in the last few days than he has in his whole life. He won't nap in his crib, either. Yesterday I took him to the Dr and the Dr thinks he might have a little reflux (he just started spitting up, too). Some of his fussiness may have to do with a few things I've eaten recently (I pray that's what it is). Honestly, I can't have a fussy baby AND newly adopted nearly 3 year old twins. If you could, please say a pray that this passes. It has been miserable.
In other news, the boys are now eating string cheese. This is great since they are barely touching their milk. And just today they began eating Goldfish crackers. They are chowing on some right now as I type. Tristan is sleeping in his bouncy seat.
I promised Chuck I would share this funny story. So, on Monday night there was this awful smell as I was sitting on the couch. I assumed it was Chuck. Showers have been few and far between lately and we had both gone 2 days by then without showering. Chuck actually sprayed himself down with Febreeze because whatever the smell was, it was making me sick. The next day I finally got to shower and when I pulled off my socks I learned that the wretched smell was my OWN feet. How sick is that??
Tomorrow we will probably buy a slightly used Dodge Caravan. We were trying to do life with no car payment, but that has equated to breaking down a lot and lots of repair bills. We've prayed about it and have decided to buy a good minivan. We wish we could buy a Toyota Sienna, but we just can't afford one. So, it's the Dodge Caravan. Chuck will probably pick it up tomorrow. This means we are getting rid of our beloved Al the Altima. We've had him since 2001 and we will miss him. He's been a good car and we've replaced so many parts on him that we know he will last a while. Unfortunately he can't transport our entire family from place to place.
Okay, baby is up and hungry. Time for me to go.
