I wanted to participate in the Read-a-thon but couldn’t really ask Jason to do 24 + 6 (recovery sleep time) hours of dad duty so I suggested to my mom that she and my dad might like to come and help out for the weekend and being the awesome grandparents they are, they came. Gage was having so much fun that he did not even notice that I was taking the day off.
Jason was never that comfortable with me doing Sundays with Gage and I told him that I would only do it til Gage turned one. But I’ve heard from so many of you via blog, Facebook, and email that you would like it to continue. So, I’ve been thinking about it and decided that I’ll continue to feature Gage on the weekends in someway. Maybe Weekends with Gage? I’ll try to be little more focused. Once a month I can do a weekend with books, one with a special baby or mommy issue, one with a special trip we’ve taken, and the last one is open right now. So, Gage will continue to show his cute face for a while longer, maybe til his next birthday? I don’t know. I like having the weekly update. I’ve been better about documenting firsts here than anywhere else.
Also, I haven’t really addressed his health scare from February (post here). We weren’t convinced that it wasn’t formula related in some way and have had him on soy formula since and we have been extremely (too) careful in introducing foods. In July he spent another night in the hospital after I fed him a cracker with cheese and milk. So, that’s where we are. We are not feeding him dairy even though his allergy test was negative. He has been the picture of health otherwise and I’m hoping that week in February will be the scariest week of his childhood!
