Not too much going on here at the Kagan household. We've decided to hold off on putting the kids in daycare / school until Mila is a year old. She's just too little right now. I might do some evenings later on, but have Alex watch the kiddos after he comes home from work.
The problem with this is that Robby really needs the interaction of lots of kids. What does this mean? Playdates, playgroups, Galaxyland, library meets, and hopefully a gym daycare. But that also means that I have to be very careful in trying to get / keep Ms. Mila on a schedule. For example, twice a month we have playgroup that is at 1pm. Right now, on her new schedule that we are working on, thats playtime, bottle, and then playdate / playgroup time. But we have to be home by 4:30 for Robby's snack and workbook time. Its really important for her to get on a schedule as she's been waking up three, four times a night and we aren't quite sure why.
The schedule needs some obvious tweaks right now. 11:45-12:45 is her nap time, followed by a solids lunch. I'm not sure she's going to MAKE it 11:45! ** especially ** if we go out for our walk at 10:30 like I have planned. And on Sundays when we are out or have company, I'm not sure I can stick to any schedule at all. But she reaaaaaally needs a schedule right now! And Robby needs the playtime! In fact, in about 15 minutes I need to round up the kiddos for a walk. And then I need to give mila a bottle and a bath since she won't get one tonight. And while she's napping, Robby needs a bath too.
And I need a vacation!
In the medical side of things ( having now dressed the kids and walked them around the block ), Mila is having a terrible eating week and has lost 2 oz. She's also vomited several times, and spent hours and hours crying. We had her at the Ped Friday, and he thinks that she probably has a UTI. Getting a urine sample from an infant girl.... lemme tell you... NOT FUN! Those little sticky bags just don't cut it. .. Especially if said girl pees all over them! And then poops on them requiring that you go and get more. And then they leak.... But irregardless, the urine test showed some white blood cells, so we started her on an antibiotic and she seems to be feeling MUCH better today.
Cute pictures coming!
