Well, after 2 wonderful weeks with Michael home, he had to go back to work today. I was NOT looking forward to him being gone, and to be honest, I was kinda scared. Anyone who has been around us sometime during the last 2 weeks knows how hands on and wonderful Michael has been with Caleb. I kidded Michael all weekend about how many times he was going to call, but as the day went on, I called Michael more. :) Here is a brief overview of our day without daddy....
4:45AM (Michael was still in the bed) - Caleb decided this would be a good time to wake up hungry, wet and ready to play. We (mommy and Caleb) got up and ate. Caleb finally fell back asleep around 5:30 fed and dry.
7:30AM - Caleb was awake, hungry and ready for the day. We ate breakfast (the 2nd one of the day) and got dressed for the day.
8:45AM - Caleb fell back asleep and so mommy decided it would be a good time to shower. Mommy also called the doctor because Caleb has some serious "eye gunk" that wouldn't go away. They tell us to be there at 10:20 (mommy now has to hussle to get ready and out the door).
9:45AM - Mommy is showered and ready to go. She decides she should change Caleb's diaper before our appointment. Caleb decides this would be a good idea to pee all over his outfit. Lovely.
10:00AM - We are out the door and on our way to the doctor.
10:20AM - We are at the doctor and we sit there for 15 minutes, then they tell us I am in the wrong waiting room. Lovely.
...have I mentioned how heavy his car seat is????....
10:45AM - we are still waiting...in the right waiting room...for the doctor...
11:00AM - still waiting...
11:15AM - They call our name and it is time to weigh Caleb. He screams when I take his clothes off. Lovely...he has gained 5 oz in 7 days...yea!!!
11:20AM - Caleb decides it is time to eat. I break out the bottle and feed him. He then proceeds to spit-up all over mommy and himself. Lovely.
11:30AM - The doctor comes in. He tells us that Caleb has 2 clogged tear ducts and needs an antibiotic. He then tells me he wants to do a culture on his eye to make sure there isn't anything more. He the proceeds to stick a q-tip into Caleb's eyelid. I have to hold his head still while he screams. Mommy then proceeds to start crying. It was not a pretty scene. The doctor then checks Caleb from head to toe and says he looks good, except his "gunky" eyes. The doctor then tells me that I have to take the culture to the lab...on the OTHER SIDE OF THE HOSPITAL!!!!!!!
...have I mentioned how heavy his car seat is?????????...
12:30PM - We meet Grandmommy at Sam's to buy wipes. Caleb sleeps through this experience.
1:00PM - Caleb and mommy venture to Kroger to have his prescription filled. They decide they will take FOREVER to fill our medicine.
1:45PM - We leave Kroger. Caleb is hungry. Mommy is hungry.
2:00PM - We are home (finally) and Caleb eats and falls asleep.
2:45PM - Mommy goes to check on Caleb. Mommy obviously didn't put on his diaper right because he has wet the pac-n-play. We are now on outfit 2 for the day.
3:00 - 4:00PM - This is kinda a blur for mommy. :)
4:08PM - DADDY COMES HOME!!!!!!
5:00PM - Mommy takes a nap! :)
Whew! What a day!!! Who knew it would be such an exhausting day. We are looking forward to a quiet, calm day tomorrow. Ha ha -- we'll see....
I will post pictures of our little man soon!
