I think we are finally starting to feel a little more normal. Kaiser is happy as can be, smiling all the time. He is sleeping pretty well, like 12 hours a night. He wakes up 1-3 times a night crying, but I can calm him in 5 seconds with a pacifier and talking to him. We went to our well baby check up yesterday. He is on the mend, but still has 2 nasty ear infections. We are on a stronger antibiotic for 10 days. His lungs are still cruddy, but on the mend. We are going to do breathing treatments throughout the rest of the winter just to keep him from getting super sick. He got 2 immunizations and was pretty crabby last night. Today we have to go to the lab to get some blood drawn and stool samples just to make sure he is all clear.
Developementally the doctor was impressed. He thought he was doing well, given where he came from. He is sitting up on his own now and only falling over occasionally. He can sit and play by himself for a while. He is still pretty clingy to me, especially if he is tired, sick, or just plain mad. It is okay with me that he wants me to hold him.
The 4 of us are going for our first overnight tonight at a hotel. We are just going to stay downtown and go swimming in the pool, then out to dinner. It is only a half hour away, but it is a well needed rest from daily life. Having 2 kids is a bit difficult, but I have a helpful 5 year old!
