Along with new independence that Carson has gained since turning 2 has also come massive amounts of energy! I have hardly been able to be online and I feel guilty because the only reason I am on right now is because Carson is being entertained by Thomas the train. TV time seems to be the only time Mom gets peace and quiet. I have limited it and I'm pretty strict about how much TV he watches, but I feel bad pushing him off to the electronic babysitter.
I'm trying to adjust and find our healthy balance. Mom can't work 24/7 despite what little boys think! Although I'm feeling pretty good because Carson didn't wake up once last night...not even once. Now, I went to bed late but even still I was able to get 7 straight hours of sleep which I haven't gotten since Carson was 4 months old. Not sure if it will happen again anytime soon and I have no expectations. I'm just grateful for a night to recuperation!
We have really been working on Carson's digestion. He is still suffering from severe acid reflux and his doctor suggested an X-Ray of his internals to see if there is a kink causing problems. I really don't want Carson to be exposed to more radiation since tiny bodies are more susceptible to it but I will if we have exhausted all other avenues. We have been using Colic Calm, which is slightly different than regular gripe water and has claims of "curing" reflux. I figured we would give it a shot along with a stricter diet. It has seemed to help a bit so I am happy with that and . I would like Carson's pain to end and for us all to be able to sleep at night!
