The last week has been a flurry of heat (temps near 95-100), failure, grumpiness, sadness, elation, and so many more events and emotions. I failed with the AC installment but I now have 5 fans rotating the air around the apartment. So far so good the average temp in the apt has maintained a high of 85 degrees Fahrenheit on the hot days.
Robert seemed to have seemingly endless days of poop explosions. Poor kid, I was beside myself trying to get him to even eat something. It was rough. He wanted to be held, then he would want to be free to run around then he wanted to snuggle… it was a long week of separation anxiety to the MAX. Finally he is eating normal and his poop is getting back on track with no explosions. Before we left for the zoo Monday I made sure to pack 2 changes of clothes and extra wipes. He had 2 explosive poops before we left, but to be on the safe side I left the change of clothes in his bag. It was a nice outing with the other mom’s in our group and I am pleased that he didn’t have a major poop overflow until we got home and started playing.
I was at my wit’s end for a few days. Absolutely nothing seemed to be going our way. But the clouds have seemed to start breaking up. I now have office space and have started working on new packaging ideas for my baby products. I got a job working as a mystery shopper, which I will show the “How To” later in another post. But I will say this. It has helped me feel like I am helping out with the house even if it isn’t a lot of money it is something.
Robert is now walking like a champ but this also requires a lot more of my attention as he can now move around a lot faster and can get into more things. Going to the park is a lot more fun now that he is walking. I have started letting him climb up and go over to the slide and slide down all by himself like a big boy. Of course I am right next to him as he climbs the steps, tots over to the slide and catch him at the bottom. He has a blast.
This next week will be an exciting one as we start getting settled in the new office and really start to work with the 3D printing machine.
