Teething and a day after shots.This was my weekend.
On Friday I took the babe to the doctors for his two month checkup and of course ,the dreaded shots. i really felt horrible doing this to him because he was so happy when i got home from work to pick him up, and was smiling at the doctor and the nurses, poor little man didn't know what was coming, he got 4 shots! 2 in each thigh! the first one he kind of had this look on his face like (hmm ok what was that?) but by the second one......it was more like (hey what was that?.......wait a minute..... OOOOOOMMMMMMMMGGG GOOOODDDDDDDD!!!!! WAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHH) I felt so bad for him, so what did I do? did I cry? Nope...I laughed at him....how sick is that, my kid is sitting there screaming his lungs out, and i laugh at him. He was just getting so upset, it was almost funny.....god I am a terrible mother lol.
We had a bit of a surprise at the doctors office, he noticed that Hudson was drooling alot, so he asked me how often that happens I said " all the time the kid is like a faucet!" he has also been inconsolably fussy at times when i KNOW it is not his colic, the colic period starts about 4pm and runs until 8pm,but lately he has been getting fussy earlier and earlier and it doesn't really stop.
The doctor looked inside his little mouth and sure enough, he is TEETHING!!!! have you ever heard of a two and a half month old child teething? I mean seriously people, only MY child lol.
He has two bumps right under the skin on top. LOL he chews on everything, including me, and isn't even old enough to hold a teething ring!
The doc seems to think he will have at least one tooth by 4 months!
So this weekend was rather rough, with the reactions he had to the shots (fever, general crankiness) AND the teething, this kid was drugged up and cranked out. hence the picture above, he was so tired yesterday would not take a nap to save his LIFE!!! And when I took that picture he looked just like that, one eye shut , one eye open, staring into space like college kid that's been up all night smoking pot.....except without the munchies, as a matter of fact he wouldn't eat at all, he just wanted to chew on his bottle.
I did mange to make a pumpkin pie and put up fall decorations,but that was about it.
Lets just say as much as I miss my little man today.....I am REALLY glad to be at work :)

Then last night, he slept from 9:45 pm to 6am!! I woke up , realized that my husband never got up to feed him, and quickly rushed into his room to make sure he was still breathing!( of course he was)
I picked him up in my arms and he smiled at me, he was so good all morning, watched me do my makeup with all the interest in the world. Watched me make breakfast, then we played for a bit before I had to leave for work.
I have no idea what my mother in law is doing to him to tire him out so much during the day, but WOW!!! She can keep doing it as far as I am concerned!
Granted, we are still a bit cautious every night when we go to bed, we would be stuid to think he will do this every night….or WILL he?
He gets his two month shots tomorrow afternoon; I am not planning on doing much this weekend lol. Hopefully they won’t make him too too cranky. He will be getting a steady does of Tylenol for sure!
Well back to work! Tonight I am going out for Thai food with my friend Julia, yay!!!! Girl time and pad thai!!!!

Pregnancy kind of sucks for the guy, especially if you had a bad pregnancy like I did near the end, lets just say not a whole lot was going on for the last two months if you know what I mean! So I thought for sure that when I finally DID have my son, that my sex drive would return full force. But it's like riding a bike, you never really forget HOW to do it, but if you don't do it often you kind of suck at it.
Now granted as I had said previously, it's a not my self image that is putting on the damper, I still have about 13 pounds to lose, but honestly I am almost happier with my body now than I was BEFORE i was pregnant, and I am a size larger!
But sex often now seems more like a chore, and it just shouldn't be that way. Regaining your own sexuality after birth is rough! You must define in your head the difference between not only a lover, but a mother! And honestly some times it's very hard to shift gears in that respect. But the point is that you still have to WORK at it, especially if your in a marriage, because all us married ladies know, marriage is not always a cake walk, it's at times very hard work, and this is the one time specifically that you REALLY need to take care of your relationship.
Gone are my free wheeling single days, of feeling like a temptress out on the prowl, when I would get dressed up and go out with my friends, and flirt up a storm, stuff like that made me feel sexy. But With marriage it's different, your past the flirting phase, you have to find new ways to keep it fresh and to excite each other, new ways to feel sexy. Unfortunately the sexiest thing in the world to me right now is a warm fluffy bed, and me laying in it..........sleeping.
i do miss my libido, that has now seemed to fly out the window, but I am working hard on getting it back. it is just going to take a little time. Good luck to all you new mommies out there!

As much as my particular leave sucked (getting half of your salary when you already make next to nothing really hurts the ol pocket book,) i feel really lucky because they could have just as well not given me anything, so I am grateful for what I did get, I am not however getting paid for this week that I am taking here because I went over my allotment of what the company would pay for. But In the end it's very worth it to have a little more time with my cutie pie.
So I'm interested now, what is your maternity leave like in your country?
