Stumped by Solids

V has been eating solids for the last week or so. I tried giving baby cereal but she doesn’t enjoy the blandness. So I made rice and veggies with meatball porridge and blended it up. She loves it! I also started making her homemade puréed fruits as well. I noticed lately that she has been having difficulty passing stool. Lots of grunting and screaming, almost out of frustration.
This morning, she made a ton of noises while playing and only passed a little bit of stool. The rest of the day was a lot more grunting and screaming, especially when she was sitting and playing. She’s also been highly distracted during nursing; if there is anyone around or any other stimuli, he nurses for a short period, like 2 min, often going on and off. So after dinner I took her up to her room and she nursed much better. Then we spent about 10 minutes waiting for her to poo, and she finally did. Hallelujah!
But now, she is gassy and has woken up screaming at least 4 times and we’ve now gone to her a3 times, myself 2x to feed her. Seems she wants to pass some gas. So I put her on her tummy after nursing her. At first, she lifted her head but I patted her bum and she lowered her head down and fell back asleep. I had to go and turn her onto her back bec M was worried it might not be. Good idea. I thought she might sleep better. But I’m going to have to give her more tummy time during the day to let her learn to roll over back and forth on her own. She woke up minutes father I put her on her back so M is with her now.


M loves to play rough with the kids. He had Z on the exercise ball first but V was soon eyeing them and wanting to go on as well. They had so much fun giggling while bouncing on the ball with daddy.

V’s first taste of watermelon. She lived it so much she took a bite out of the next piece M gave her and she choked. Luckily she spat it out.

Separation Anxiety

Tonight I was able to go to the gym earlier – 7pm. V went to sleep for the night at 6:30pm and Z has been wanting M for bedtime recently. What a breakthrough from before.
So I drove off to the gym, not feeling upto working out while I’m driving. It’s Monday and it’s back to the cold weather. We all know too well what happens during the wintertime, we hibernate.
I finished my strength training circuit and start my cardio. In the meantime I keep in touch with M on BBM just in case. I find out V cried shortly after I left Nd M had to go back and forth between the kids. But all is well. As I’m driving home, M tells me he doesn’t know what to do with V
She’s up screaming and crying I rush home, change and go to her room where M is holding her in the rocker. As soon as she hears my voice her eyes opens and shes glad I’m home I lie her down in my arms to nurse her and she looks up at me, reaching out to touch me as if to say, “hi mommy. I’m happy you’re here. ”
All is well and she is fast asleep in my arms. She missed me.
