So after Peyton's shots yesterday she wasnt in the best mood. Well she went to bed fine at 7 and Brian came home about 7:30 and we just hungout, went to bed at about 10:30. So 12:30 rolls around and Peyton starts screaming! i run into her room and i just know that her thighs are hurting from the shots. So i yelled for Brian to make a bottle because i couldnt just leave her there screaming while i made one. I changed her diaper and it made her cry harder. I noticed she felt warm so i decided to take her temp. It was 101.3, so i tell Brian to ge her some Motrin and i gave that to her (which she hates) and then finished her bottle. Well by then she was all excited that mom and dad were both in her room and didnt want to go back to sleep =/ so Brian offered to stay up and get her back to sleep.. i was so happy for that. Although i didnt go to sleep till Peyton did, it was still nice to be in my own bed... she is still sore this morning and has a fever of 100.6, but she seems to be feeling ok and laughing and trying to play. My poor baby. =(
So we went for Peytons 6 month well baby and shots and we used to go to the army hospital on post... but since its so busy there they outsourced us to a local family practice... so this place is kind of country... the didnt even have a digital baby scale... (and the wallpaper made me wanna run away) so it comes time for her shots and they didnt have Pediarix which is the 3 in one SO THEY SHOT MY BABY WITH 5 NEEDLES!!!!!! and they made ME hold her arms down while she freaked out!!! and some other nurse held her legs while 2 other nurses shot my poor child!!! Then the didnt even carry the rotovirus so i STILL have to go on post to the army hospital to get it, when i could have just went there in the first place!!! i feel traumatized!!!!!!!!!!! i called Brian afterwards and he is soooo pissed, he said when we call to make her next appointment with Tricare he is demanding that we stay on post!
Ugh i CANNOT stand getting out of bed before it is even light outside!!!
On a good note, Peyton slept from 7-4 last night... But my stupid ass didnt go to bed till 11pm so instead of the good 6-7 hours i could have gotten i only got 5 hours of sleep. Then only another 2 hours because Brian got up to get ready for work, which is fine only he sucks at being quiet and ended up waking Peyton up and then she didnt want to go back to sleep. SO we layed in bed for an hour watching cartoons so mommy could wake up a bit. I think the harder Brian tries to be quiet the more noise he actually makes!!!
So now Peyton is playing happily in her jumper and im debating on being lazy and going back to sleep during her nap. I have one load of laundry to do, but the rest of the house is clean so i think i can be lazy for a couple hours. Besides who's gonna stop me!!! Im so tired of doing laundry. Before Peyton, Brian, and I moved in together i was washing my clothes and the very tiny clothes of Peyton. Well now im washing my clothes (which get spit up on so i have to change alot) Brians civilian clothes plus his uniforms, and Peytons extensive wardrobe plus all her bibs and rags, and the giant mountain of bath towels that always seem to accumulate in between laundry days!!! i used to not mind laundry but now its up at the top of my most hated list right next to dishes!!!
yay time for my, oh i mean Peytons nap! gotta go! lol
So this morning Peyton wakes up at 7... Ok no big deal its what time she usually wakes up anyways.. well for some reason im exhausted and Brian is complaining of a headache. Well crabby butt Peyton must have still been tired so she went back to sleep at about 8 and Brian and i go back to sleep. Well i wake up at 9:45 and its 15 mins before church starts. i never set an alarm because Peyton always wakes me. So 15 mins is NOT enough time to get me ready, Peyton ready, Brians lazy a$$ out of bed and feed and let out the dogs and make it to church. So i missed church and im kind of upset because i missed last week too because of a fussy baby.
So now its 10:22 and i have to feed Peyton, feed and let the dogs out, get Peyton dressed for the day (which is all fine and dandy) but Brian is STILL IN BED!!!! i went and asked if he was gonna lay in bed all day and he says, "I still have a headache." well maybe if you didnt drink that giant Rum and Coke last night yo would feel like shit! so now here i am stuck with a crabby baby (her teeth are bugging her) and i just wanna go roll Brian out of bed and make him get up because im sorry but laying in bed doesnt make a headache go away. ok im done venting...
So hopefully this blog will go better then my last. I made a blog on wordpress and after about i week i just stopped posting.. oops. so anyways, today is my baby Peyton's 1/2 birthday. i CANNOT believe that she is 6 months already. I was going through stuff today for our yard sale that we are having soon and i pulled out some newborn socks and sleepers and whatnot and i swear i shed a few tears. Although i am glad we are out of the NEW newborn stage i dont miss the teeny tiny clothes. Im hoping with the money that i make with the yard sale we can get Peyton some new clothes since her chunky butt is already growing out of 6 month clothes and she just turned 6 months TODAY!!!
I cant believe that Halloween is only a week away. Peyton is going to be a little Ladybug. I cant wait to see her in her costume. My girlfriend Tia and her baby Eve are coming over and we are going to pass out candy since both of our men have to work that night... Boo to that one!
Last Sunday we went to the SC State Fair and i was very disappointed. No one here knows what a freaking cheesecurd is! its cheese dipped in batter and deepfried!! its the most delicious fair food EVER! These are the things that make me miss Minnesota where i was born and raised!!! i guess thats what happens when youre with a military man, you make sacrafices... like NO CHEESECURDS!! lol
