Ain't no rest for the wicked

Since my last post, Rylee has gotten sick a couple of times. Last week I stayed home a couple of days to take care of her because she had Bronchiolitis. It was making it hard for her to breathe, and we had to use a nebulizer every 4 hours for the first 2 days, then 3 times a day for the next 3 days. When we went back to the Pediatrician on Friday, her doctor said she didn't need it anymore and sounded much better.

When do I get to put her in a bubble? I would like that very much.

But it has to be self cleaning, wash her cloth diapers and carry itself when I'm not able...

Speaking of carrying- a friend sent me an Ellevill Zara woven wrap to borrow and try out. Babywearing just became SO MUCH MORE COMFORTABLE! We had been using the Moby and Baby K'tan, but since they are stretchy wraps, they don't provide enough support. My neck and shoulders would burn like the fiery gates of hell after about 30 minutes of wearing Rylee. I think I found a new obsession.


At doctor's office waiting on the nurse to come in.

Everything else is going well I suppose. I still hate leaving the house every morning, barely getting to even kiss her good bye, let alone hold her, knowing someone else is getting all the Rylee snuggles and I'm not.
:( It makes me sad. Hopefully we can figure something out in the near future that will allow me to work from home! I miss my baby.

We don't know her exact weight anymore (I'm guessing somewhere between 11.5-13 lbs), but she will be going back to the Pediatrician on Friday to get her next Synagis shot so they will weigh her then! Hopefully we don't have to do those for much longer. I can't remember how many doses she has to get.

I ordered a bunch of Baltic Amber online to make teething necklaces and bracelets for babies and mamas too. Hopefully I can find a bunch of ladies to buy them!!!

Rylee is wearing a hazelwood necklavce in this picture. We got it for her reflux. It seemed to help! Now I can't tell if he reflux is gone completely, or it just doesn't bother her anymore. Either way, we leave the necklace on her all the time and only take it off when she gets a bath.

I need a nap. Or 10. And a vacation from cleaning the house. At the end of the vacation I want to come home to a spotless house and no chores or groceries to buy for at least a week. That would be nice.

Keep dreaming.
