The weekend and other things

Friday- My sister came and took G to beggars night. He only stayed out for about an hour and it was all inside. He had a good time. Then came home and after a struggle (more on that later) We finally got him to sleep. Well my husband did because I was having a panic attack (OK I'm being dramatic)

Saturday- Started out like any normal day G slept in until 7:45!!! And so did this momma. We played, he refused his cereal but still went down for his nap and then it his me. I started to sweat and fell sick to my stomach my head filled up and the head was a pounding. I took a shower ate some soup and crawled into bed at 4:00 in the afternoon. I stayed in bed all night and my husband is a saint who got G to bed and got up with him throughout the night. He even called my mom and had her come get G in the morning.

Sunday- I woke up at 6 to my Mom being at my house. I helped her get G's food around and she took him for the day. I crawled back into bed at 7:15 and slept until 1:30. I finally got up and took some migraine medicine and started to fell better. We headed to my parents house to carve pumpkins. I was mostly on the couch but we did get some cute pictures of G in the pumpkin.






So since our weekend was a bust because Momma was bed ridden there is not too much to report.

I'm so thankful that I have the amazing husband that I do and that my parents are awesome and can help me out. I was so scared to be with G alone because I kept getting dizzy.

Anyway Grayson has been weening himself off of formula? I say that with a question mark because he has started to refuse the bottle and cereal.
This is his old eating schedule
7:00 6oz. bottle
10:00 6 oz. bottle and 2tbps. of cereal mixed with half a container of fruit
1:00 6oz. bottle
4:00 1 container of stage 2 foods (Turkey and rice or a veggie)
7:00 8oz. bottle and 2tbps. of cereal mixed with half a container of fruit

Now he is eating like this
7:00 6 oz. bottle
10:00 half fruit and 6 oz bottle
3:00-4:00 1 container of stage 2 foods and half a container of fruit
7:00 8 oz bottle (sometimes only drinking 6oz. of it)

This really freaked me out on Friday. I could not figure out why he was refusing food. My chunky thigh ed little boy had NEVER refused food. I called my mom and she said to just watch it and that if he didn't eat in the morning to call the doctor. Well he sucked down is morning bottle and ate his fruit without cereal but was still refusing the 1:00 bottle.

Have any other Mommy's ever had this happen? I just worry that he is not getting enough formula. But I guess he knows what he needs?? Why are babies so hard sometimes? I meant that in the best way.

He has also started to fight sleep at night and I think that is because he has been taking a cat nap around between 3:00 and 4:00. I feel like sometimes that as soon as we get into a grove with him and have his routine down pat he decided to change it up on us.

Hope everyone has a happy Monday!
