It's been a long time since I last wrote an entry,,, well lots of things have happened.
Acacia is doing much better these past few days.. she is a much happier baby for some reason. And since I put some Cortizone creme (0.5%) on her, her face has almost all cleared up . Last night was the 1st time I put cortizone creme on her, and in the morning when I woke up I almost couldn't believe my eyes. Her face is no longer red, my baby is actully a very pretty 白嫩嫩. 水噹噹 !! Wow, what a big difference! I am glad a sister told me to use this creme. I actually thought about buying it but wasn't sure if I could use it but since her baby used it (per her pediatritian's instruction), I knew it's ok. I think now all the redness and bumps are gone, Acacia actually feels better. I am sure these baby acne itchs!
Acacia has been sleeping through the night, she doesn't really need to nurse at night(last night she went from about 10pm to 5am this morning, and if I didn't try to make her nurse she could probably sleep longer). But my breasts were so full I had to nurse her and also got up to pump. By the way my beloved manual Avent pump broke(daddy broke it when I asked him to screw it tight for me) so now I have to use the Medela electric one.. it's not as convenient, but for the mean time it will work. I bought a new Avent pump on ebay for $25 including shipping but it will take a few days to arrive.
The labor day long weekend didn't start out well, on Thursday after I picked up Jacob, he started crying and complained he had a headache. I took his temp and he had a low grade fever, so on Friday he stayed home to rest. Every 5 hours his temp would go up (taking Motrin), and he would feel bad, but everytime after he took the medicine he acted like he was perfectly fine. This is a strange virus, only fever, nothing else, which I am glad!
Starting around Friday I started to have a upset stomache... not sure what it is because I still have it today. It sometime goes away, but then it comes back. This afternoon it was quite bad I almost couldn't function. So grandma picked up Jacob.
And it rained the whole day yesterday.. what a relif to finally have some rain! But that meant we couldn't go out to the zoo or Aboretum. We went to the Firewheel mall and bought a wok stainless steel pot and some long sleeved onesies for Acacia. We also went to Cherie's house for the kids to play there for a while. The kids had fun but they were so tired out by the time we got home at 7pm.
so that was our boring weekend. Hopefully everyone(especially ME) will return to healthy state asap!!
