David Update

Boy have I gotten behind on blogging! This David is becoming quite the little chunk at 11 lbs now! We took him to church for the first time last week and eveyone kept commenting on how tiny he his, but compared to two months ago he is huge! I guess I forget that he is still pretty small.

David has decided to get an early start in making life difficult for his mama. About a month ago, he was having problems with his pooping. In that he pooped WAAAAY too much. He was literally filling his diaper every thirty minutes and there was no way for me to keep up with it. One night after a feeding I changed his diaper 4 times before I finally just gave up and let him sleep in it. So after doing some research on the internets, I stopped eating all dairy and a little part of me died at that moment. It is so hard to know what to eat when you can't eat dairy. Especially since cereal is the MAIN food group in our house.

One day I actually started crying because I was so hungry and nothing sounded good except dairy. when David came early, one of my first thoughts was how unfair that I was missing out on two months of all you can eat ice cream every night. So as you can see, i'm a little upset about it.

But I'm getting used to it now. I like rice milk on my cereal and now that popsicle season is here it doesn't seem quite as bad. I've had some milk twice since I went off and both times David screamed in pain all day, so that also makes it totally worth it. little stinker.

There really aren't any David updates. He still can't do anything exciting, but he is definitely becoming more aware of us. Oh! and this is exciting! He finally grew into a sleep sack we have and since then he has been sleeping 6-7 hours straight at night. LOVE IT!
