Zeke had a check up today. He got four shots and he’s
been fussy from them. His little legs are red and swollen too. The
doc was a little concerned about his spitting up, something all of mine have
done. She suggested pumping and adding a little cereal to weigh down the milk
in his stomach. I don’t want to give him cereal yet. I’ll try
propping his mattress. She said she could prescribe Zantac or
Zantax–something else I don’t want to do. He’s gaining weight just
great, he was 14 lbs, 15 oz. She also wants me to give him polyvisol
drops—-didn’t do that with the other two. Any of you use them? I
do like her even though I don’t agree with her all the time. Please tell me I’m not crazy for not wanting to listen to my doctor’s advice!
On the way this morning I was eating a granola bar and the bonding popped off
my front tooth. Ugh! It looks terrible! We had several stops
this morning and I was so self conscious to talk or smile to the many people I
saw. I made an appt with a dentist tomorrow. I’ve been wanting a
permanent fix for awhile, I guess now is the time. I’m really hoping it can be fixed tomorrow because we are going to Richmond GBC this weekend. I look terribly silly trying to cover my tooth with my lip while I talk.
We also got Zeke’s third birth certificate this morning. We just sent one off to get his passport and we have one each for the specials seals we need to get a visa for Argentina and Costa Rica. Brian and I need to travel to five cities to get birth certificates and authenticated seals for each of us. Those cities would be Annapolis(for Zeke), Washington DC(for me), Philly and Harrisburg(for Chi and Lijah) and Cleveland and Columbus for Brian. We are hoping to accomplish those all sometime during are travels this summer. The moral of the story, if you plan to move to another country marry someone from your state and have all your kids in that same state. =)
