So much for thinking Jessica is a healthy little baby… She got a tummy bug from somewhere and was not a happy camper (along with mummy that is). I was in tears after the creche phoned yesterday to tell me there’s something wrong with Jessica. It was the fastest I packed up my stuff, phoned the boss and told her Im leaving for the day – sorry, Ill try and work from home (ya right that is, didnt get much done).
Got madam from the creche, got an appointment at the GP and off we went. Got meds and straight home… She was a bit niggly and moany, just wanted to be picked up (just to bounce around and not sit still on your lap mind you). But yesterday afternoon ‘those’ nappies ‘ (all I can say is BLIKSEM!) cleared up. She ate dinner, drank some milk (not her usual amount, but still).Other than that she’s herself. Only had a slight fever, but Calpol took care of that quick!
Today she is back at school, and I feel like a horrible mom for taking her back so soon… This morning she was in tears when I left the school and that made me feel even worse. Checked in, and she’s doing fine. They havent had any of ‘those’ nappies, she still hasnt drank any milk, but was having a nap…Hope its all over and she will feel better soon!!!
On better days, enjoying feeding time!!
Jessica is starting to ‘ta’ for things, if she wants something she goes ta ta ta. And she will pass you things, and then waits for you to give it back – like a little game! The cat seems to have her own word: kkgggg. Mamma still doesnt exist in her vocab (insert unhappy mummy face here…)
Cant believe she is almost 8months old! Which reminds me – what age did you start with finger foods and what worked? She doesnt want to know nothing about more textured foods, makes herself naar (sick). Was hoping maybe by starting finger foods, the ‘growwe kossies’ will go down easier…
In other news: We have booked a holiday for March *jiggy dance*. Just going down to Ramsgate for a week, but boy oh boy I cannot wait!! Got a nice plekkie right on the beach (if it was any closer I wouldnt sleep comfy when its hightide! check it out here) Still have to book the kennel for Piper-Kitty and she’s got to go for injections…. (well hubby takes her, I dont do needles, the vet thinks its very funny when I go wait outside for the ‘formalities’ to be done) Looking forward to Jessica’s first sighting and playing of the beach! Hope she’ll love it as much as I do!
It would seem we’ve got a itch… lol. And no – we dont have goggas biting (well besides from the ‘lesser spotted ‘ killer vampire mozzies we got – got a bite in my neck, looks like a bloody hickey!!). We are thinking of this year, to put our housey in the market and get a bigger place. We want to have another child – not right now, but in a year or 2. And then we will need another bedroom. Our house is already getting cluttered with all the stuff (baby and parent goodies alike). Now probably as good a time as ever. So after the holiday, we will be going house hunting! Already looking around. You’d think when someone decides to sell their house, they’ll at least put some effort in to make it neat for the website photies!? Already have plans to make our house ‘look’ more clutter free when its time for piccies!!
Whoops look at the time, thought I’ll just post a quick update and read some blogs, almost 2 hrs later!
Have a great day!!
