Everything goes out the window! Our routines have been completely a mess this past week due to Lynley teething her molars, and after three days of fever, I took her in to see the doctor- ear infection.
She was prescribed some antibiotics, and we thought finally, we’ll see some improvement. In her, yes we did. She started eating more than just two bites of fruit and tiny sips of milk. But the very next day, Corbin woke up with a high fever. This had me thinking, “What in the world is going on!?!” Ugh… It was Saturday, so we couldn’t bring him in to see the doctor. We called, and since twins mostly do the same thing, we assumed he probably has an ear infection as well. Sure enough, I noticed him touching his right ear. Antibiotics for him too. This is the pits. Derrick and I are exhausted. Our backs hurt from carrying around two 20+ pounders for a week and constantly putting food in front of them, only to have it spit back out or thrown on the floor.
So this is how we ate. In front of the TV. This method was effective maybe 50 percent of the time, but it was better than holding them and trying to feed them with their heads on our shoulders. I can’t tell you how much food ended up in my hair. Eww!
And this is how we napped. Not the most comfortable position for me, but it helped with their ear pain to be more upright and close to me. I kind of enjoyed it. I haven’t been able to sleep with them like this since they were 9 or 10 months old. They really like their cribs! Lucky us, but I miss the snuggles.
We are happy that Lynley is finally feeling better, and we really pray that Corbin gets his appetite back soon too. He’s actually happy, playing and seems fine overall. But he won’t eat a thing! We’ve got a busy few weekends coming up, so we need them to feel better. Please God!!!!
There was a little bit of icing to the weekend despite the sick babies. I took a little trip to the salon! New hair color and a trim. It took a year for my hair to return to it’s “former grandeur” post nursing. Remember where I started? Go read all about my battle with telogen effluvium here.
