Yesterday Tater started army crawling and Squdge figured out how to crawl forward. He's been crawling backward for about a week. Now we don't need to look for one of those reverse beeping things to stick to him.
None of the older four children crawled at 8 months. They were 10-13 months old when they learned.
Today Squdge figured out how to sit. finally. The older four learned to sit around 7-8 months as well. Tater doesn't sit yet. It's hard not to compare them to each other.
I'm dizzy often. I gag when brushing my teeth. I haven't thrown up yet. Danny did have to pull the van over on the way home from the beach Saturday so I could dry-heave and drool all over the side of the road. I don't generally throw up when I'm expecting. I just feel like it. This time though, I'm pretty dizzy.
Something in my house smells baaaad. Danny has changed bums and outfits of the three in diapers and we finally figured Hammy has evil gas. You know what, we are down to about 510 diapers a month. Pretty good eh? We've had a handful of good toileting experiences with the Hammy this week. If I wasn't so fatigued and nauseas I think things would be going faster.
My stomach makes a squish sound when I poke it in the place where my abdomen is still separated. I think it's rather entertaining. But Danny doesn't.
I had my first OB appointment today in a beautiful town over an hour away. I was 2 minutes late.
After realizing my insurance company did not mail them the referral letter and actually mailed it to my previous OB, trying to convince them that I truly am covered, getting the referral worked out with the proper OB's name, requesting the insurance company to mail me and the doc a new one, offering to pay cash for the visit so they'd just tell me if there was ONE heartbeat, they still sent me on my way.
So my first OB appointment will not be until May 6. Hopefully then, someone can tell me how far along I really am. My guess is 8 weeks right now.
We got a house. No, we did not buy a house. We got a new house assigned to us on base. A new house! On May 12, we will get the keys to move in. I am through the roof with excitement. One thing on my list for the new house is a dehumidifier. I'd like to say good-bye to all the mold problems and mold-related illness we've endured this past year.
That's it for me.
