Cailyn is now six months...it's fun to watch her grow, but I sometime feels sad at how quickly she is growing and how much sooner I need to return to work :(
We are still seeing the Network Analyst for Cailyn and have noticed a considerable change in her spitting up! She responded very well to her first treatment but started to regress so we are continuing with it for 6 sessions to see if this resolves the spitting up. As of yesterday, her spit up volume is about a mouth full so a marked improvement from the previous multiple ounces at one time. The other improvement from the treatments is that Cailyn goes down for a nap now with ease. Before, there was a bit of a fight and struggle, but now, head turns to the side, eyes close and tadaa...sleep!
Cailyn is now fully aware of the presence of the cat and squeals with delight when she sees her. We have a daily pet the kitty time and Cailyn is learning what the word "gentle" means. Our cat is an old girl and very tolerant and patient with Cailyn. She likes to lay near Cailyn and be part of the family action, especially in the evening.
Since the spitting up is minimal now, I do not know what to do with all my free time (insert sarcasm). Laundry is now down to a minimum, floors are clean, baby and mommy are dry!
We have almost finished with that damned cradle cap! What a mission this has been! Oils, combs, brushes, creams...it's all crap! The best and most nauseating approach is to gently pick it off...I have episodes of vomiting into my mouth when I do it, but, it is the only thing that has worked so I have to suck it up and do it! It is funny that a poopy diaper does not bother me, but that foreign waxy residue on Cailyn's head sends me into a totally grossed out, slightly nauseous state! Ah motherhood!
