This past week has taken a toll on us. Owen had a cough for a while, but it didn’t seem to bother him until it started to wake him up at night. He woke up a few times last weekend and started to get extra cuddly. So on Monday he went to the doctors, and it turns out that he had a double ear infection. Poor guy :(. He has been on antibiotics for a few days, and he seems to be feeling a little better as well as sleeping through the night.
As parents already know it can be hard to get out of the house in the morning. It was extra hard on Tuesday when Owen had a coughing fit that led to throwing up his breakfast. Oh the things you never thought you’d catch in your hand until you became a parent. We still made it to work and daycare fine, (though in different outfits), and Owen seems to be doing better.
He is growing up so quickly. We got him a training potty the other day. Since he has been so good at pooping in the tub we thought that maybe we should sit him on the potty before each bath. We didn’t have high hopes, but surprisingly just before his bath on Tuesday he squeezed out a little turd in the potty. We’ll keep practicing and perhaps it will become habit. I dream of no more diapers :).
