A very busy day for Claire... she went to her weigh in this morning and was 7lbs and 11oz. Then she had her early intervention appt, followed by a music therapy appt in her home set up by Hospice. Mom was able to get plenty of work done and Claire ate like a champ. She, as usual, was up most of the night and spent much of that time eating, tho very slowly, as Claire likes to take her time.
1am, Claire was up again and very hungry. Dad was just going
to bed, so mom gave her 2oz of cereal/formula and then pedialyte
and kept her in her carseat -- she seemed a little congested
so mom wanted her head up high. After about an hour or two,
Claire was finally exhausted and her congestion was gone,
so mom put her back in her bassinet and Claire immediately
fell asleep... around 3:30. She wasn't her typical snoring
self, so mom went in to check on her a few times until 4am.
1am, Claire was up and very fussy. She was just realllly hungry.
Mom got up with her and sent dad to bed. She drank for about
30 minutes and drifted off to sleep. She had a 1/2 jar of
applesauce at daycare and another 1/2 of bananas in the evening
at home. In between her spoon feedings, she had pedialyte
and formula. After her bath, mom made her some cereal/formula
and she drank a little less than an oz before going to sleep...
or so mom thought, she was up again in about 15 minutes and
dad fed her for about 5 minutes before she went to sleep again.
Can you say, 'using bottle for pacifier'?
Claire had her bath, bottle and a little advil and slept through the night.
woke up at 2am to help mom out. Dad went to bed around 10pm
so had a little rest. Both trying to catch a few minutes here
and there of sleep. Neither got more than about an hour after
2am - Claire was just too unhappy, and her parents tried everything
they could think of to comfort her.
3am, Claire was up again, just wanted an ounce of formula
and back to bed, but mom was WAY too tired, so Dad took care
of her. He went to bed fairly early in the evening.
had another restful night. They seem to come every third night
or so. She has been eating lots of food, including bananas
and pears and doing really well. Her congestion is cleared
up, but her runny nose comes back each evening... again, must
be those elusive teeth.
|No rest for the weary! Claire was up all night... mom got a few 15 and 30 minute naps in during the night, only to go to work in the morning. Claire went to daycare and ate 7 1/2 oz of bananas by spoon and drank probably 4-5 oz of cereal/formula mix from her confused haberman bottle. Tonight she is very fussy, so sh will get some Advil before bedtime and hopefully everyone can get some rest! She went to bed early, but was up soon after. Dad had her until 11pm when she drifted off to dreamland.|
|November 30|| Claire was awake all night. Not good as her dad had to drive
back from grandma's house, 4+ hours that turned into 7 hours
due to Thanksgiving Weekend traffic. She was well behaved the
whole way! Slept most of it and drank the rest of the way.
Thanksgiving weekend was great. The whole family was together on Saturday for football and was very excited watching the FSU vs UF game. Claire had a great time during the game being passed around, about 22 people in grandma (and grandpa)'s livingroom, passing around the popcorn, the chips... and oh yeah, Baby Claire!
|Claire had a wonderful night (so did mom and dad) as she slept through the night! After going to bed at 10pm, mom woke her up at 6am to get ready for daycare, and she took her meds and drank about 2 1/2oz of formula/cereal and off she went. Maybe those yummy bananas were a sleeping potion, or maybe just her fussiness wore her out.|
was up at 9am and drank about 3oz of formula/cereal. Rested
and chatted for about 30 minutes and drank another 1 1/2oz.
She fell asleep in her carseat and left for daycare. It is
a very rainy day, so mom decided to answer email and work
from home for a bit until the weather cleared, she didn't
want to take Claire out in that nasty weather. It is beautiful
out now, overcast and turning colder (low around 37 tonight)
and the rain stopped. Well, beautiful when you are used to
high 80's and humidity. Claire has her pink blanket and a
nice warm outfit on for the day.
had a nice day. She got up and went to church with her family.
Afterwards, mom decided Claire's hair was getting unruly...
there were so many different lengths, and it pretty much all
stood on end.
Claire and family celebrated mom's birthday with fun. They decorated the house with streamers, and took mom out to dinner. Claire's sister spilled the beans about the birthday cake that Dad and the kids picked up for mom earlier that day. Mom mentioned to dad that everything couldn't be a surprise (esp with a 4 year old :o).
was up until 2am. Mom put her in her bassinet then, and she
fussed for about a minute before drifting off to sleep. The
bed was nicely warmed for her with the heating pad (taken
out before she layed down), so she was quite content after
she gave in. Mom got another 4 1/2 hours of sleep.
was pretty content to sleep next to mom the whole night, with
bottle in mouth, until she would run out, and mom would make
her s'more, then she was fine with that. Around 2:30am, mom
put her back in her bassinet and she slept peacefully until
5:30am, when dad got up with her.
are always a bit difficult around the household. Claire slept
from 2am to 5:30am, a real record for her. Mom put a heating
pad (set on low) in her bed a while before she went to bed,
and when dad put her to bed, he took out the heating pad and
turned it off, then put her down. She was nice and snuggly.
fun day. Woke up early and went to mass. Claire was well behaved,
spending the whole time in Grandma's arms, sleeping most of
had a pretty typical day. Her grandparents and aunts were
coming to visit for the weekend... so she was very excited
about that... she loves when they come to visit... new faces
was up at 2:30am, and she drank about 4oz of cereal/formula
with mom, and then back to sleep in her bassinet, only to
wake up about 10 minutes later with a loud cry. Mom checked
her and she was fine... must have been a bad dream, her oxygen
was right next to her, so she was getting some good O2. She
was back to sleep again in minutes.
and dad were up until 2:30am. She fussed the whole time. Dad
said she was trying to get those hands in her mouth. When
she got up in the morning, she drank 5oz, and later mom gave
her a couple spoons of applesauce and barley cereal mixed...
she was just too unhappy to eat it. She had her bath afterwards
and her Physical Therapist(PT) appointment. Her PT announced
that she would be dissolving her practice for personal reasons,
Claire was very sad, but she will have a few more appointments
before she says goodbye. :o\ After the appointment, Claire
calmed down and took her nap, where her PT left her... she
was exhausted after the busy morning. Mom got back to work.
