My mind is in seventy-five different places right now. I literally can’t focus because my to-do list is so large that I don’t even know where to begin. (I wrote it out on Sunday and it’s so huge that I have to break it down by days and then by hours.)
Tomorrow morning, at 5:15, we’ll be packing Eli up and heading to Indianapolis for Eli’s appointments at Rileys. Eli will be seeing two specialists, one, the gastrointeroligist and another, which is one you don’t know about.
This is where having a blog, you have to make a decision about the privacy of your children. You may know their names and their faces and how funny I think they are but the personal details about them, sometimes I really want to share, but I don’t.
Eli will be having surgery. Not tomorrow but probably before Christmas. It’s nothing serious but it’s something we have never heard of – we’ve known about this since the day he was born. But it’s just too personal – so I haven’t mentioned it.
But I will talk about teeeeeething and cryyyyying and this poor baby boy who is so uncomfortable he doesn’t want to nurse or sleep or do anything. Except, maybe, MAYBE watch Baby Einstein videos. Right now, I am so thankful that Julie Aigner-Clark is KAJILLIONAIRE for creating the Baby Einstein videos because without her? I don’t even know what we’d be doing?
And also, Eli is being baptized this weekend. I know what you’re thinking…aren’t baptisms held when babies are newborns? Well, not in our case. Because we have such a large family, we try to pick a time that works for everyone. My brother, Dave and his wife are Eli’s Godparents, they live in Washington, D.C. and they are a very, very busy family. Literally, sometimes, Dave will fly to Saudi Arabia just for a meeting. THAT type of busy. So this weekend was the first weekend that worked for everyone.
This week is so full of big life things, so if you don’t see me around, this is why. But I read your comments and I love them. I know you are here and I love that. Next week, I have some super fun giveaways lined up, I can’t wait for next week.
(for many, many reasons.)
