So maybe our family room is a little overrun! There seems to have been an all out siege!
“Good morning, sunshine!”
Today was the “Day of the Perfect Baff” that Nora had with the windows open. The fragrant Spring breeze laced with sunlight and bird songs danced with our senses.
The wind was a little chilly at times, but fortunately Nora had her 3 Owls to keep her warmed afterward!
The dietician paid a visit after baff time. Someone in this family has officially made it onto the growth chart!!!! 16 pounds, 6 ounces!
Then after that we buzzed over to Nora’s appointment with her pediatrician. She was soooo well behaved in the car!!
Nora’s heart rate was down in the 150s this morning. She’s eating very well and but for a couple of gassy troubles she was in great spirits and squealy. Of course this is the condition she shows up to the doctor’s office after we’ve spent the past 3 days freaking out and bombarding her team of doctors with emails and phone calls!!
“Oh! Is something the matters?”
In all likelihood Nora was a little dehydrated from losing so much fluids during her disagreement with Nutramigen. There weren’t any outwardly obvious signs–she was still wetting lots of diapers, still had tears, etc. but I did notice that her mouth seemed a little dry the other day. Now that we have her back on the soy she’s been keeping 95% of everything down. She’s regained her hydration, thereby lowering her heart rate!
On last check this evening I got some readings in the 120s! Her baseline is usually around 135.
This baby really likes to make sure we’re all on our toes! Thank you for praying us through her hijinks!!!
I was so in love with the weather and actual Springtime today! This tree in our front yard is in its peak of beauty right now. It is an explosion of fragrant blossoms, alive with the hum of thousands of bees and bird symphonies! I stood next to it this afternoon admiring the contrast of the pink against the cerulean blue sky, indulging my lungs to the perfumed air. Sheer perfection. If you look closely you can see a bee in the foreground blossoms.
Let the trees of the forest sing, let them sing for joy before The Lord.
(1 Chronicles 16:33 NIV)
“The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God endures forever.”
(Isaiah 40:8 NIV)
Something sparkly caught my eye and I found myself wandering down to the creek.
I saw a quote somewhere that said, “Time spent in nature is never wasted time.” There were a thousand other things I “should/could” have been doing, but none of those things would have untangled the knots in my mind heart and soul the way that nature can. I need to do this more. Hopefully Nornor will be able to come with me AND enjoy it someday soon!
“Dat might be kinda fun!!!”
Soooo happy to see Brudder and receive loves and cuddles from him!
We spent the rest of the evening blowing bubbles, taking a walk and laying around outside on the deck.
Tomorrow is jogging stroller try-out! Wish us some lucks!!!
I will praise the Lord, who counsels me; even at night my heart instructs me. I keep my eyes always on the Lord. With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken.
(Psalm 16:7, 8 NIV)
