I am enjoying my last week off with Nayeli before I go back to work. I haven't cried alot yet but I am sure I will. I am trying to hold back. I don't want Nayeli to see me upset. Shane is taking next week off so it will make the transition easier. I requested for my hours to be reduced at work one more time. It was denied. I know God always has a plan. Whatever his plan is we praise him each day and thank him for our precious little girl. Thank you to everyone for your support and prayers.
I took my troubles to the Lord;
I cried out to him, and he answered my prayer.
My mom will start coming to help with Nayeli in two weeks from L.A. I spoke with UCSF and they told me of a special mask my mom can wear during the cold/flu season on the plane when commuting back and forth. It's not your average mask. It's one that nurses wear when there is virus outbreak or TB patient they have to treat. I am ordering one for my parents and one for ourselves to keep handy.
Nayeli went one week without waking up after she went to sleep for the night. For the past few weeks she wakes up one hour after she goes to sleep and wants to breastfeed. She does it a couple of times a week. I breastfeed her and bottle feed her before she goes to bed. I guess she is thirsty. I change her diaper twice before I go to bed and she sleeps the rest of the night.
One new habit that Nayeli has picked up is that she will flap her arms up and down if she wants something or if she is upset. We think it's cute but we try not to laugh in front of her. Something else she is mastering is she pulls herself up to a standing position and then she lets herself go and she lands on her tush. She loves it! Thank goodness she has some padding with her diaper. When she does it on the hardwood floor she tends to let go a little lower. Smart Girl!
Nayeli trying to figure out how to turn on the TV Nayeli trying to call John and Carter! Here is Nayeli flapping her arms. If you listen closely at the end she says Boo.
Shane's grandfather passed away suddenly last week. We are very saddened over his passing. We are extremely sad that he never got to meet Nayeli. Shane is not going to go to Colorado for his granfather's funeral. Shane doesn't want to take any chances going on a plane and getting sick. We are sad we can't be there to support our family.
