Like mother, Like Daughter

Kali hasn't been sleeping very well for the last couple of weeks.
Let me rephrase.
She sleeps GREAT during the day,
mostly while she's in her car seat or being held.
But at night,
she doesn't sleep.
at first,
she would just be awake and make noises.
She wanted to play.
But as the nights have gone on,
she's become more and more fussy.
and the last couple of weeks,
She's been super gassy and spits up a good amount when she eats.
The last few days,
I haven't even been able to put her down for more than 5 minutes without her
not only CRYING, but SCREAMING.
like screaming bloody murder.
I couldn't even DO tummy time because it made me pretty much cry.
She was obviously in pain.
I went to the hospital to visit one of my friends.
I was telling them about her issues and realized it'd been almost 6 days since she's pooped.
After asking the nursery nurse about it,
having her feel her belly
and taking a rectel temperature with no results,
I decided to call the Doctor.
It was three o'clock and they had us come in at four.
We got there and while we were in the room waiting for her Doctor to come in,
I decided to feed her since she was crying and it was time.
She ate really well,
but was moaning and acting uncomfortable the whole time.
When the Doctor came in,
he checked her and decided pretty quickly that she [most likely] has Acid reflux.
I have acid reflux too.
she gets it from me and I couldn't feel worse for her!
Acid reflux SUCKKSS!!!
He said her belly feels fine and the reason she mostly likely hasn't pooped,
is because her body needs every single calorie she is eating.
He said it can take ten days sometimes.
He said that if I cut out dairy and gave her the medicine he prescribed,
I would start noticing a difference in 48 hours.
okay cutting out dairy is like...
impossible for me! Seriously it's SO HARD!
haha all I eat is cheese.
But when you think about it,
it's a win-win situation.
I'll lose weight doing this!
Kali seems like she's feeling better today.
she isn't a fan of her medicine and I laugh everytime I give it to her because she makes the funniest faces you'll ever see.
I'll record it and put it on here next time.
She is still really spitty though.
I hope that gets better soon.
but she just woke up...
so, gotta go!

Boost my ego

one month old!!
Kali's doctor has been really pushing tummy time on me.
Everytime I see him,
he tells me that it's important we get her to do as much tummy time as we can.

Although she hates it,
it will build her neck muscles and keep the back of her head from going flat!

And let me tell you,
she HATES it!!

She cries and moves and fusses the WHOLE time.
I'm not kidding.
I hate it.

Last week I put her down for tummy time while I was folding laundry.
I had my music on.

She started fussing like normal.
a song I like came on and I started singing.

Immediately she calmed down.
When the song was over, she started crying.

So I changed it to another song I liked and started singing again.
...she stopped again.

I was quite proud of myself.
My baby likes my voice.

currently she is doing tummy time again.
She was fussing and getting upset.
So I decided to try the music thing again.

She stopped.
only when I sing though.
She starts crying again when I'm not.

she is asleep.

today has been kind of an emotional day.
I literally just finished having a pity party and was crying to Tyson.

Then when I did tummy time and started singing to her...
she made me feel better.
at least my baby loves me :)

and my husband for that matter.
who is currently making me some dinner since once of the things I was crying about was how there is nothing to eat here when I can't have cheese.

[I'm cutting out dairy to see if it helps poor Kali's tummy aches :(]

He found something. <3
Yes, I know I'm a baby.
But sometimes I get emotional.

Home sweet Home

So we've FINALLY figured out our housing situation.

After going back and forth multiple times between buying or renting a house...
making multiple offers...
and being outbid EVERYTIME,
we decided to stop and not worry about it anymore until after Kali was born because I was getting way too stressed out about it!

my sister and brother-in-law are moving because of his job...
and they offered to rent their house out to us.

We have decided that would be best and to wait until Tyson finishes school to buy a house!

So we're moving on July 1st!
I'm excited to finally get to have our own space!'s been nice having help/not paying rent at my parents house ;)
