It's a sad day around the Callahan household.
Our Diaper Genie bit the dust.
I'm not sure if I broke it, or Travis broke it, or maybe it just broke itself. I don't know. But it stinks. Literally. Our diaper genie has been a lifesaver and I loved it. It's super, super easy to use and keeps the smell away. Completely. But gone are those days. We are now resorting to the trash can and it is just not the same. Smells, smells, everywhere. Ugh!
Today has been a great day. Much, much different from yesterday. I know you guys aren't going to believe this, but Morgan Kate gave me a run for my money yesterday. She was fussy all day long. She fussed while playing on the floor, while in the crib, in the highchair, in the stroller. Everywhere, all day. I got absolutely nothing done and when Travis got home from work I HAD to take a thirty minute break. I was spent. I'm not sure if it was related to teething or reflux or what. But today she has been an absolute angel.
Speaking of reflux. As I have said before, we have been slowly making the transition to whole milk (cow's milk). I thought things were going pretty good. MK was drinking her bottles, keeping them down and seemed to like the milk. However, just in the last two weeks - once we started adding five ounces of milk and only two ounces of formula - she has started with these really wet, nasty burps and awful, awful hiccups. She has also thrown up three times this week right after having a bottle. So, I called the pediatrician today because I thought maybe the milk was causing her reflux to flare up. Before adjusting her meds, the pediatrician wants to try a different type of milk. Either rice milk or almond milk. It could be that the cow's milk is upsetting her stomach. When I was younger I couldn't drink cow's milk or eat ice cream. It made me feel awful. I sure hope I haven't passed this on to MK. Anyway, I will keep you all posted on our progress. I picked up the rice milk tonight. Just our luck, less milk for more money.
