Nayeli's 1st Valentine's Day
Thank you Dan and Georgina for this cute Valentines outfit for Nayeli. Nayeli is not even 4 months old yet and she already has two boyfriends, Carter and John Michael. Nayeli has great taste because Carter and John Michael are adorable. They are both her Valentines.
We spoke to UCSF on Friday regarding her vomiting. The surgeon said that based on the description of what is happening to Nayeli she doesn't need any further testing at this time. They had us increase her Rinitidine from .5ml to .8ml. They told us that should help her with her vomiting. They also told us that her vomiting is common with CDH babies and not to be alarmed. For those of you who have babies taking medicines, make sure your Doctor increases their dosage with the weight of your child because Kaiser didn't tell us to and this should've been done months ago. The surgeon suggested we slightly elevate Nayeli's head when she sleeps at night. She said her head should be slightly above her feet and nothing more. She felt doing this would decrease episodes of vomiting. I was going to do this because Kellie, Carters mommy suggested it.
On Friday morning when Nayeli woke up for her 5am feed she scared the beejeebeez out of me. I saw her two legs out of her swaddle and the top part still velcroed around her arms. The bottom part of the swaddle somehow came over her face. I freaked! I was asking everyone about when to stop swaddling and I guess Nayeli answered my question. She has been sleeping very well without her swaddle and had minor spit up the last couple of nights.
For Valentine's day Shane surprised me with flowers, chocolates and cooked a tasty tri tip dinner. He is so sweet and romantic he cut the napkins and the tomatoes on the salad as heart shape. Nayeli was great by taking a nap and letting us have a nice dinner before her bath. Shane and I always celebrate Valentine's day as our beginning to date day. Five years ago today we started dating. Nayeli and I are so lucky to have Shane as a husband and father.
I love mommy's spa treatment
Daddy already has me brainwashed to be a Buffalo Sabres fan I was pointing at the logo in my sleep. I think I like the Kings better they have a cool uniform.
Thank you Carter for my onesie, I can't wait til I am big enough to wear it.
