Having managed to avoid J’s stomach virus, I came down with some kind of relatively mild flu-style virus. I had some wicked fever and chills last night, but I’m feeling much better today, other than a painful sore throat. My only regret is that I think I’m going to have to pass on my planned 5K tomorrow. I’d even prepaid for it! My sister-in-law ran a fabulous 10K this weekend, and I’m inspired to go out and run, but at this point, it is just not going to happen. Fortunately, I do think the illness was mild enough that I’m not too worried about B getting it.
I’ve been knitting diligently (until the last couple days), and I’m on track to finish B’s baptism robe. I have to attend a class Tuesday evening. Hopefully she will not be sick at that point. Even minor outings are a logistical challenge when you’re EBFing. However, she’s now on solids twice a day, so that is helpful at least. It is amazing how B has taken to food. L was much more reluctant. I have given B oatmeal, sweet potatoes, peas, and pears, and she gobbled all of them down with enthusiasm. I’ve been introducing food slowly in part because of laziness and in part because she has some eczema, which is often associated with food allergies, so I am inclined to be a bit more cautious. Our bargain Ikea high chair turned out to be not so much of a bargain when it started rubbing paint off on everything, and we replaced it with the Keekaroo. So far, I love. Photos of B’s high chair cuteness will be coming shortly.
Ah, my two munchkins. They are just so lovable.
