We are well-rested today! My sweet mom volunteered to come over last night to help me with Knox. I’ve managed to get yet another sinus infection, I think this is my fourth in six months?? I used to only get sick twice a year, at the change of seasons (yes, we only have two seasons in SC… hot and hotter), but I guess that’s what lack of sleep does to your immune system! Anyway, the plan was for me to get a full night of sleep so I can try to shake this illness, and she would wake up with Knox. Well. The kid only woke up twice! Can you believe that?! I couldn’t! He is doing so much better (knock on wood)- I guess it’s a combo of the Advil and the weaning, which is amazing. He went down for a nap so easily today, too, so something is going right.
Unfortunately, his seemingly easy transition to milk was merely a tease- he now wants nothing to do with it. Oh well, back to the drawing board on that one! He still wants water, though, and is guzzling cups of it like he’s dying of dehydration. He’s very dramatic. Wonder where he gets that from? I tried to just give him milk in hopes he’d give up and drink it, but I knew he was thirsty and once he got a hold of that water, he drank and drank. Our doctor said we could try soy milk, so maybe I’ll try that straight or mix it with whole milk. Or I’ll try mixing milk with his favorite thing ever, yogurt, like blog reader Kate recommended. One way or another, this child will be getting some milk in his system, like it or not!
