I definitely spoke waaaaaay too soon when I said it was easier to handle Peter being away this year. I take it all back. It was much worse this year. The hardest thing I had to deal with last year was trying to decide which movie to watch.
Ezri chose this week to be at her fussiest. Now we don’t exactly know why she’s been so fussy, but I kind of want to blame it on her immunizations. She was perfectly happy before we got the shots last Thursday. Ever since then she’s been “a little off” – Her sleep has been erratic, she’s refused the nipple a few times, been extra cranky, screams during car rides when she never used to and has gone a couple days at a time without pooping. If the behaviour keeps up for the next week, Peter and I thought we might make an appointment with the doctor. It’s very frustrating not knowing what’s wrong or how to help the screaming baby in your arms.
So I willingly admit I had a couple ugly cries while Peter was away. It usually happened while Ezri was screaming as well. One time it happened after I slipped on the bottom few stairs while carrying the baby. Scary thing to happen, but we are both totally fine. I have a couple bruises but Ezri was 100% unhurt. I’m petrified to go on the stairs now and it sucks because our house is full of stairs 🙁
I am definitely not looking forward to Peter’s next business trip away. I cannot be more thankful for him and that I don’t have to do this parenting thing alone. I can’t imagine what being a single mom would be like. I had 3 days of that and please never again!!
I posted this picture on social media earlier today but I thought I’d add it here as well. In between all her fussiness, she still managed to be super cute!
