So, I planned and planned and planned for Cabrey’s 2nd birthday party and Danny’s christening only to end up in bed sick, all day. I’M SO MAD. But I’m sure they had such an amazing time with my husband, family and friends. I literally laid in bed while they were downstairs celebrating, ugh. Continue reading “6 months, 2 years & helmet game strong.”
Things to know about the helmet: 1. It’s expensive and 9 times out of 10 your insurance doesn’t cover the whole thing and 2. getting fitted for it is a nightmare. If you can get past those two things, you’re set.
Over the past few months since Danny broke out of the NICU, he clearly has favored the right side. Anytime he sleeps he’s always positioned his head looking to the right and it seems as though no matter what I do to try and get him to keep his head to the left, it always goes back to the right. I’ve tried everything, from placing something under his crib sheet to physically (which didn’t hurt him and was recommended by the dr.) slowing pushing his head to the left and keeping it there for about a minute. We have actually even gotten used to feeding him with our left hand so that he’ll be on our right side, looking up at us to the left. Nothing has worked and it seems that his head has just continued to get worse. To me it even seems to be pushed out on the opposite side of the front of his head.
The past four months have been the craziest, most rewarding four months of my life.
Four months ago Danny was born, a month early. The first two weeks in the NICU were, at times, unbearable and terrifying. But we made it and he’s more perfect than we ever could’ve imagined.
I sware every age I say this is my favorite. He’s sleeping through the night, in the bassinet still –not for any particular reason other than I just don’t feel like getting up and putting him in his crib after he falls asleep on me in bed. The NICU doctor recommended to have the baby sleep in the bassinet next to me for the first year ..uhhh, no thank you. He won’t even fit in the bassinet in another month. He eats great, poops great and is just the most mellow babes.
Cabrey is as crazy as ever. Everyone asks, “how is she with Danny?” Aggressive and obsessed. She wants to hold him, take pictures and run away with him all at the same time. She’s constantly yelling, “DANNY!” when he’s sound asleep and thinks it’s hilarious to wake him up.
Tony is overloving, per usual. I think he’s pretty much used to having a baby around since Cabrey, so he’s kindof unchanged. He loves talking to him and making him laugh, (heartmelted) but he’s also 9 and always doing his own thing.
Two under two is insane. Everyone keeps telling me it’s worth it and gets easier, soooo I’m holding onto that.
Our weekends are spent at the football field, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. I love watching my husband coach and the way Tony looks up to him just makes all of the time I have to spend apart from him all worth it.
