all of which refer to bela.
she just got her first tooth, well it officially broke through about a week and a half ago, but it is still working its way out. today at the doctors office, the nurse commented that her second bottom tooth of about to come in also. i guess in her medical minded way she could see this before me, the first time mom. so i guess that means that i will be in for more fun very soon. poor little teething baby, poor mommy.
so on the sick part, bela has some kind of "goopy eye infection", i believe that is the official name. the doctor didnt actually tell me what it was, just that i had to put drops in 4 times a day. haha, yeah, 4 times. she said it so casually too, as if she has never tried to wipe goop out of a babys eye, let alone put something in. we left the doctors office to get the prescription filled and the whole time i was quietly laughing to myself. bela is a little girl, 14lbs 9ozs to be exact, but she is strong. small, but mighty. so when we got home i put her on the changing table and stripped her down. seemed necessary, i dont know why. i know i dont need to explain the following events, i am sure you can all imagine. i will just say that about 10 drops later i got 1 drop in each eye. only 3 more doses to go, for today, and then only 4 more days! ugh.
i think the not napping part of this post is because of the 96 degree heat. of course our non air conditioned house seems way hotter than that. not that i am complaining, i am getting quality baby time today since she wasn't able to go to daycare.
i shouldnt complain though. through all of this my little bela has still be her usual self. all smiles and giggles. well atleast most of the time.
its hot though, h-o-t hot. although i do think i am taking it pretty well. both of my parents will tell you that i was the biggest whiner in the heat. i guess when you have no ac and no way out of the heat, what the use in complaining, nothing you can do about it. i think when bela gets up from not napping we might make our way to the air conditioned starbucks..mmm.. air conditioning...
