It’s Been Forever!

I’m always saying that since I’m never near a computer to post anything! LOL! Let’s see, new stuff since I last posted: Alex had his 2nd birthday (Mickey Mouse Clubhouse theme), I’ve been working at the hospital, we moved to the north side of town (about 10min commute), and I’ve been able to make sense of weird stuff going on with me.
Second Birthday: Awesome! Close friends and family and the best thing that I could’ve purchased…A BALL PIT.


Work: I love it! I got the hours I wanted and work in the section I wanted. People are great and it’s like a mini family (most days)
Move: We had to do it. Our health and family time was suffering. The hubby and I work about 5 minutes apart and driving an hour and a half to work in two different cars was not the business. Now we have less than a 10minute commute and it’s a better neighborhood. We even got little man into a new daycare (same company, new location).


Me: Well, I had been having weird numbness/weakness in my legs and bouts of vertigo as well as other things. After numerous tests with a neurologist, I was diagnosed with MS (multiple sclerosis). Start on Rebif this week. Both husband and baby (and my friends too) have been awesome through this! That’s all I’m gonna say about it, because this will NOT change me.
Baby Alex: He has always been a talker but now he just won’t STOP! He still has some tantrums, but what 2yr old doesn’t? I say he is awesome and annoying all at the same time! We are pretty much potty trained (minus overnight but I don’t want to push that) and the new daycare is to thank for that. I was working with PullUps potty timer/watch and they said, “put him in underwear“. Two weeks of accidents every few days and now NO MORE. The daycare is more diverse, so seeing him interact with different cultures and nationalities is kind of funny. He has taken over my Kindle that daddy bought me for my birthday, but he is learning on it. The other day I caught him spelling and I was in shock! Anyhow, I could talk about him for days…

Before…

…and AFTER!!!

What’s New in La La Land

Quick update, but this post will be loaded with pictures.  I haven’t posted since our trip to Oklahoma, but not much has happened. Well, actually that’s a lie.  We had Christmas, grandmommie visited, mommy turned 30, daddy had surgery, mommy had surgery, and Alex grows each day as a toddler.  His vocabulary is amazing!  I worry about music on the radio because he picks up EVERYTHING (but he doesn’t know what those words mean).  We’re getting out of the temper tantrum phase, so my nerves are a little better. I passed my MLT certification and start working at the hospital on Monday (yay! excitement!).  Daddy and I are even looking at houses, seeing that our commute is over an hour long for the BOTH of us.  Anyhow, here is the past few months in pictures:

My Son is my Alarm Clock

Ever since I started working at the hospital (630am-3pm), my son switched his schedule along with me and wakes up at 5am for a morning feed. It’s almost like he is making sure that mommy is awake. Unfortunately though, before I started at the hospital, daddy threw his back out. Like super bad. The doctor doesn’t even want him to lift our 13lb son! Thank goodness for family who has been a big help. I love being able to take care of my husband, but its starting to be a pain, and it’s only been ONE WEEK! Sometimes, I wanna nap but I can’t leave him alone with the baby. God forbid if he falls or even drops the baby when he has a muscle spasm.
In other news, I’m still hating the daycare. For one, they fed my lil man rice cereal because he hit 4 months old. I asked them not to and they want a doctor’s note (since she said closer to 5-6mths). What is THAT craziness?!? Then, when his teachers speak of him getting solids, they tell me “he won’t want your milk anymore” or “how will you keep up??”. My response has been, “we’ll do just fine thank you”. Luckily for me, the hospital has been very accomadating with my pumping situation (it IS a hospital). Other than that mess at the daycare, everyone loves my son. I hope they don’t spoil the mess out of him!
Working at the hospital has been awesome. I felt weird asking for breaktime (which I can work with the ones already provided) and a place to pump. My director (a man) went straight to a nursing mom and asked her for the info and showed me the way! There are a lot of mothers that work there and its cool to hear stories about the different stages. Plus, I’m geting to do something I love, and that is working in the lab!

Ack! I Sprung a Leak!

I've Sprung A Leak!

“You need the BP engineers over there to help cap it off?” ~my husband

I’m all for emptying the boob during a pumping session.  However, I don’t like to take up too much time during my “scheduled breaks” since I am supposed to be working.  So you can imagine my surprise when my super producer (the Left side) decided to fill up 2 bottles!  I can get anywhere between 4-6oz on the left side, today was 7.5oz.  At 20min in, I wrote my husband (yes, we have text convos while I pump to pass the time) saying that I didn’t think I was able to stop anytime soon.  To which he responded with the above quote.  When one bottle was full, I stop and restarted the pump on a new bottle.  45min later….well, you get the picture.  Maybe my LO is going through a growth spurt…or I just need to lay off the fenugreek.

My Run In With the Janitor

Those that know me, know that I don’t like to cause conflict.  I’m actually more of a mediator than anything else.  Well here at work, our cleaning crew (really just ONE person) constantly buffs the floor and it seems like the bathrooms are never clean.  It got to the point where people wanted to cut the cord to his buffing machine!  Thankfully, a friend of mine who is also a friend of our janitor set it up so I could talk to him.  I hated voicing the complaints of others, but something needed to be done.  I told him the female issues and he explained what his day is like (which included cleaning the bathroom twice).  Turns out, we just have nasty females that utilize our bathrooms.  The janitor was really nice and let us know that we could come to him with our issues and we worked out a new schedule so that the women who were complaining could walk into a clean restroom during their break.  I was pretty proud of myself for being able to work that out. 

Ladies, clean up after yourself and men, check your chic’s bathroom in her residence….I never realized there are so many nasty females out there.  I won’t go into the details that I saw here at my job, but PEOPLE shouldn’t be doing certain stuff in public restrooms in THIS COUNTRY (and to think, it was offered as a place for me to pump).
