ugh and blah

:(  While I don't have textbook morning sickness... ugh. I am nauseous all day long, ALL DAY! And tired? blah blah blah blah. Exhausted is closer to the term needed, but still can't quite capture the need to take 3 naps a day.

With that being said, I do come out of my misery fog for most of the day. While trying to ignore the constant churning in my stomach, I get to enjoy my wonderfully funny baby boy :) He shakes his head and smiles and laughs and it just lights up my day! He's so cute, I just can't get over it. I've been saying that for the whole 9 months of his life, and will probably never stop, lol. He'll be my 30 year old cutie pie :)

He gets an immunization every month for the next 3 months... poor baby! BUT that means he will be pretty much DONE with them for a while. He won't get any this Winter when Flu season is at it's peak, which makes me VERY very happy. Especially when I think back to when Ky was 2 months old and got super super sick :( It was such a scary time for me. It was just after he got his first set of vaccines (well, only one shot (Pentacel) but it was 5 actual vaccinations, which I wasn't thrilled about, but when ahead with it any way). He was so incredibly congested and snotty, and had a horrific cough... my main goal this winter is for that NOT to happen again.

SO, sleeping arrangements might have to change sometime in the next couple of months to accommodate my growing belly, but for now, I'm loving it. Kyson sleeps in the the bed with Josh and I and only nurses about twice a night. Which is heavenly compared to the 6-8 times a night before when we were trying to get him to sleep in his own bed! Plus I don't have to wake up completely, walk through a dark house, pick up an awake, crying baby, try to find a comfy nursing position in the glider in his room (which is very hard to do), nurse, and then rock him back to sleep. Even though I was usually only about 15 minutes, it was quite miserable compared to our routine now :) I'm so glad I listen to my instincts sooner or later, or we might still be having miserable nights, and for months to come!!
