Chug-chug-chugging along! Amid flyers getting mailed (having to run to Wal-Mart for envelopes, a local grocery store to have them weighed and stamped), phone issues still being ironed out, forms needing tweeking, cover letter needing to be done, business cards needing to be created (notice how I'm saying needing to be.. meaning, not done yet)...I've taken back my earlier statement that I don't feel like this business will necessarily show up in the condition of my home. It has, not as much as I thought before I began but more than I thought last week. But more so, I notice that as fast as my brain is churning up all these ideas and making mental checklists for "when I get a chance to sit down" or "when the kids go to bed" it's been very difficult this week to sit down and put my ideas to computer. I had a lot of the forms done already before we hit this busy streak but some of them need tweeking and it just ain't gettin' done!!! I finally sit down at the end of the day, sit there trying for a bit, and end up falling asleep sitting up....or with my head down on the table, to wake up in a pool of drool and wondering, truly and sincerely wondering, where am I??? Once this start up stuff is done, I really think that it may be pretty busy but more in physical doing, not so much creating.
On an Isabella note: had her 4 month well-child (or "wild child" as we typically call it) check today. I've been very concerned with her "spitting up" or more accurately "gushing". She, however, has put some of my concerns to rest. She has grown in height from 50%-ile (non-corrected to her due date age) to the 90th%-ile. In weight, she went from 50th%-ile down to 30th%-ile but so much of her calories went into height and she still has her rolls and padding so the Nurse Practitioner wasn't too concerned. Then we briefly talked Zantac but from what I understand and she confirmed, Zantac more controls acid but not vomiting. I told her that despite the fact that she can be pretty crabby still, although much better moods than before, the crabbiness doesn't seem to correlate at all with her spitting up. As we spoke, Isabella gave a fountain of spit up, smiling lovingly through it all. We both laughed and concluded that it wasn't bugging her that she's spitting up!!! So, all in all, she received a clean bill of health!!!! We like that!
Could continue on with updates on the others, the funnies that come up during the day, etc. but am at work and my client isn't feeling good so is needing a little more than normal tonight. Maybe later!
