finally, relief!

The weather has been horrible here, and finally today it has cooled down!  It just started pouring outside, and I could hear the thunder in the distance a little while ago.

This week has been a bit busy.  Monday my boy had his four month check-up with the paed.  All went very well, and in terms of growth he has now caught up with his age group :)  He is also on the tall side, and apparently has a big head... On Tuesday I had to take him for some more vaccinations.  The poor boy screamed, and was not happy with mom at all!  So now the measles at around 6 months is the next stop.

Just a week before our big trip!  I need to head to the shops for a few small items still, and early next week will do all the packing.  Although I am very excited about the trip, it has come a bit sooner than I would have liked.  I know that my two weeks away is going to go by so fast, and when I return home I only have about 4 weeks left at home before returning to work.  I could never have imagined how this feels!  Even though I am looking forward to working again, having some other stimulation it is going to be so hard leaving my boy behind.  After spending 6 months with him 24/7, it is going to be a bit odd not having him with me.  But, let me now dwell on those thoughts too much now....

The rain has put a bit of a damper on my plans for today.  Was considering a quick walk to a shopping centre just down the road, but that is out of the question now.  But if it lets down a little I may rush down to the car and take a drive...

On the diabetes front things are going as always.  I am still having a few more highs than I would like.  I will only be seeing my Endo after my holiday.  Hope that with these highs (and a holiday which will probably add to it!) my A1c has not gone up by too much!

More on my boy:  We will be starting solids just after he turns 5 months.  I have no clue how it all works!  Have a book I will take a read through - will probably have some time during my flights.  Yet another milestone - it is going way way too fast...

You have some exciting times coming up!! :)

Solids is a lot of fun. Far more fun than milk. Our little poppet just had her first cupcake yesterday (at the grand old age of 5.5/7 months - corrected/uncorrected). LOVED it. Also loves beef casserole. It really is the transition between baby and little 'person' if that makes sense - seeing what their preferences are.

Diabetes schiabetes - argh. Do you find hot weather sends your sugars up? I do. Thought that might impact on you too esp with your destination?

Have a lovely w/end.
