My husband has been fantastic, he really has. But he agreed to work overtime this weekend and I'm not too thrilled about it.
So tonight I handed over the baby and told him to do ALL the things that I do when he gets home from work. Why? Because.
1. He needs to learn
2. He's his child too.
Typically, when R gets home he has it pretty easy. I hand over the baby for about 30 minutes so I can do some things like make TPN and Omegaven and get everything started, cook dinner, wash bottles, make bottles for the next day, pick up Walker's and my mess from the day, and start Walker's laundry. It's a lot.
R always has an opinion about how to do TPN, when he hasn't even been trained. Now, I'm fine with criticism. But when you don't know what the hell you are talking about and you're trying to tell ME how to do it, then there's going to be a problem.
So I handed Walker over tonight and told R, "It's your turn". I'll update how that went.
Update: I made the bottle, gave Walker his medicines and did his laundry. I couldn't help it.
Yesterday, we went to Kemah to celebrate big cousin Adam's 1st birthday. We can't wait for his birthday party this weekend. Here are some pictures of the cousins.
|Nana and the boys. Adam is 6 months older than Walker. He doesn't look that little next to his giant cousin, does he?|
UPDATE: Walker was NOT having the breast milk. It's either Lipase or lactose intolerant, I'm convinced. I'm thinking Lipase. Poor guy. Cried and cried while trying to feed him and then threw up. Never again!
I forgot to mention that the dietician decided to lower his TPN/Omegaven to 16 hours! Woo hoo! We see her next Friday and I'm anxious to see what she says. And also to see if he's gained weight. He feels heavy and is filling out his clothes more.
