after a really rough weekend of almost nonstop fussiness, Caleb seems to be doing much better again. it seemed as if the “lactofree” formula made things worse instead of better. he would eat about half as much as usual, then struggle and fight and scream over the rest. of course that meant he wouldnt sleep as much, so the whole routine was quite exhausting for everyone. the poor kid just wasnt doing well.
so we gave the soy based formula a shot, and he’s doing much better with it. he doesnt eat it as well as the original (which gave him gas), but he’ll take a whole bottle eventually. he even slept for 6 hours straight last night (and then 4 more), which is a huge blessing. so hopefully he’ll continue to eat well and sleep well.
I feel like I’m behind on pretty much all of life, except maybe for keeping the kitchen clean. I’m usually in a daze at work, I’m behind on my side-jobs, the house is a wreck, and forget about yard work. devotions? what devotions? and I really wish we had time for friends. hopefully we will be making some time soon. but he’s totally worth it — we just love him so much. hopefully soon we’ll settle into a routine again and be able to function better.
