apparently it’s been a very long day here on the homefront. aunt Liz is taking good care of us, but Caleb had something of a meltdown while they were all out, and he never really got over it. current theories include finally realizing that he hasnt seen much of his mama in 2 weeks, or perhaps some sickness coming on, or both.
meanwhile, mama and baby Alice have thrush. please pray that this will be cleared up quickly, as this was the same infection that mama and Caleb had when he was a newborn, and (amung other things) led to us putting him on the bottle. this was a very hard thing for us, and facing that prospect again is even harder, so please pray that God will heal. one good thing is that we’ve caught it sooner this time, so hopefully we can get it cleared up.
but baby girl is still a good eater and a good sleeper. some nights she’ll go 3 to 4 hours between feedings, and often I’m able to sleep through them. we almost feel normal at times. and so far she isnt complaining about her diaper rash due to the thrush, and hopefully we’ll get it cleared up before it starts hurting her. it’s hard to believe she’s been here 2 weeks, as it seems like she’s been around a long time. she’s still a tiny little girl, but it’s nice to see her cheeks filling out and her little muscles getting stronger.
