News at Home: I think we’re teething!
So Dante has been a lot more fussy this week than normal… although still not nearly as fussy as a lot of babies, so I really can’t complain. But we think it’s teething. He’s chewing on everything, is a total drool factory, has had an on/off low-grade fever, and is just fussier than usual. Despite all that, he had a really good week at daycare and I HOPE we won’t be coming home with poop fevers anymore! lol! I sign Tylenol in every morning so that they can give him some if he starts to get a fever, that way HOPEFULLY we’ll catch it before it goes into sending him home ranges. They are willing to give it to him, since it’s teething and not illness. Thankfully they only had to give it to him on Monday, as I really don’t want him on a ton of Tylenol – I know that wouldn’t be good for him. They seem to agree, so we’re good! Yay!
The rest of the week was such a blur. I was super busy at work and the weather was so shitty that I had horrible traffic all week. I was either barely on time or even late every day – thank goodness they don’t care about that! I’m still waiting to hear about the promotion, but I’ve taken on even more of the responsibilities that fall under that position, so I feel like they are just strengthening my case for my salary when I do finally get the offer.
Dante started on green beans this week and it was hilarious watching his facial expressions. He accepts them, but he definitely prefers his orange veggies. I’ve started mixing them with with apples to help him get used to the flavor. I want him to like his veggies!]
My brother was finally able to come over yesterday to help me with Illustrator and I’m feeling super confident about it. It’s a clunky, dumb program, but I can use it. I understand the mechanisms and the processes and what I need to do in it is on the basic end. So yay!
And Franky also came over yesterday, he and Kiko and Dante played a bit 🙂 Today, Dante and I are visiting my friend Melissa for a couple hours – she has a 6 year old and 13/14 month old (who has passed down all his things to Dante pretty much). And then it’s the mad dash to get ready for another week!
This week was another busy one as far as lunches go – I blogged during Monday’s lunch, but then worked through lunch Tuesday and Wednesday. Then Thursday I only had about 10 minutes of lunch to blog, because I had a zoom session with my nutritionist. And then Friday we had a work lunch because it was someone’s last day. So yeah… not a lot of blogging got done. I’m prioritizing writing posts and visiting, which means I’m not really getting around to replying to comments, but I am reading them and appreciating them. All the poop fever comments last week had my LMAO!
I feel like COYER is going super well for me and, while I was sad to cancel the Twitter Party yesterday, I’m so excited for what Michelle and I have coming instead. I think y’all are going to love the changes and it will be worth a canceled Twitter party 🙂
