We had such an INSANELY busy week! We were so busy, that half the time I didn't even know what day of the week it was! As you all know, Monday we had Lincoln's Early Intervention evaluation, and we got great results from that. Hopefully next week we'll be setting up some sort of schedule for his speech therapy. Here's what else happened this week...
Tuesday we wanted to have a special day with our boy. Jared and I headed out with him for the day to a nearby children's museum. It was our first time there, and we were SO impressed! It was huge. Lincoln seriously could have spent the entire day in just one room. He was amazed at absolutely everything. We didn't even have time to do the entire museum. Next time we go, I think we'll pack a lunch, because although we were there for THREE HOURS, we absolutely could have used more time! I think we're also going to look into getting a family membership. Supposedly you can visit all of the children's museums with the membership, so we plan on checking that out!
Here's our sweet boy enjoying a few of the exhibits at the museum.
I called Lincoln's pediatrician first of all to get a referral for a hearing test, and secondly to talk about his poop issue. I explained what was going on, and everything I was doing to attempt to help him out. He gave me the go ahead to give him one full cap full of miralax each morning. He said to do this to basically "clean him out." He said then I could reduce it to half a cap full like I was previously doing. He also suggested starting him on children's fiber gummy vitamins, as well as maintaining a high fiber diet. Well, I've been doing as he suggested, and so far, so good!
We live in New England. We're used to snowy, cold, miserable winters. However, this winter? This winter has been paradise! We have had not one snow storm. We had one very early in the season around Halloween, but nothing during the winter months. However, this past Wednesday we got our snow. Where we live we probably got around 6 inches or so. And yes, we were out in this wintry mess. I had an appointment, and then we had some errands to run.
Now, I have a question for you all. Who runs into their OBGYN at Target? Oh wait. That would be ME! Yeah. Awkward. Did I tell you that my OB is freaking hot? Yeah. That, too. Anyways, it was very random. I saw him in the checkout line. He immediately recognized me. It took me a second to realize exactly who he was...he was without his white coat, so it took me a minute. He took one look at Lincoln and said, "looks like it's time for #2!" So I told him our plans. He told me to start taking my prenatals...in the middle of Target. Did I mention he's hot?!
Tonight we're going to Jared's cousins house for some yummy Chinese food, and so Lincoln can play with his cousins. I cannot wait! The place we order from has this amazing stuff called "Firecracker Chicken." I'm drooling just thinking about it!
Hope you all had a great week, and that your weekend is stupendous!! Oh, and my OB is freaking hot. Yeah.
