2/14/2011 Valentine’s Day 69 Days Old

February 14th, 2011

On the 69th day in the life of the most beautiful girl in the history of the world the morning did not begin peacefully. Maya woke up for her 5:30 feeding. She was upset and crying. This often happens just before her feedings, but this morning it did not stop when she got a full belly. She kept crying and squirming long after she was done eating. We gave her some tylenol and I held her to try and comfort her but nothing worked. She would crane her head as far back as it would go and whip it back and forth. It was one of the scariest things I have ever seen. I had given her some tylenol at the start of her feeding, and eventual the combination of the tylenol kicking in and her wearing down she fell asleep. Because of her struggle this morning I stayed home from work. I wanted to make sure that if we needed to call her nurse that I would be there. She has been asleep ever since.

Erin made breakfast this morning before I woke up. She made banana pancakes in the shape of a heart.

At noon Krissie came by to help us with Maya. By this time Maya was sleeping soundly, and other than a few impressive diaper disasters it was an uneventful afternoon. I was able to get out and pick up some tulips for Erin and Maya. It was the first time I bought flowers for someone other than Erin, but I don’t think she minded.
