Baby

Well, child…

05.03.09 | 3 Comments

Now that Zoe appears to be free from the shackles of the Coxsackie A virus (which was hell on Earth, I’m telling you, and no, the name is not a joke), things are getting back to normal around here. By normal I mean that I am drastically less patient with her tantrums. And she’s much more spry, necessitating activities other than lounging on the Cozy Sac watching WALL-E for the ninetieth time. So, life with a healthy child is hard, but in a different way than life with a sick child, and all things considered, I’m glad she’s feeling better.

We’re nursing less these days. During the illness her mouth was so blistered and raw that putting anything in there was out of the question. She barely drank room temperature water. She would try to nurse, jerk back in pain, and cry. In desperation she would ask for and guzzle a small cup of cold cow milk two to three times a day. It was heart wrenching. Anyway my supply is down but not completely out, and I think she’s transitioning well. I’m relieved that we have the opportunity to end what has been a very sweet and wonderful thing on a more pleasant note. Especially since it looks like she’ll be our only one, I’m so grateful to have had this experience with her.
