So this was my first week with my two kiddos without my mom or mother in law helping me out. It went pretty well. We managed to go to the Dr. for Nixon's two week check up and then we pretty much stayed in the rest of the week. On tuesday Parker decided that he didn't need a nap. However he wasn't too distraught in his bed. He would be quiet and then talk a little cry a little and run that cycle over and over. He was the one who told me he was ready for a nap so I let him stay in there for a while. Finally I decided that he wasn't going to cooperate I went in to get him and found this:
If only this was my only surprise. The room unfortunately also smelled of a poopy diaper which was no where to be seen. I had to search for the buried treasure under all of his blankets that he had thrown on the floor. Somehow the diaper managed to be underneath the blankets and his shirt and pants even though the diaper had to come off last. Lucky for me it was all still in the diaper and no where else.
Also we got a call on last Friday saying that the blood results were in and that Nixon has a serious metabolic disease called Galactosemia. This means he can't have any milk or milk products. If you know my family then you know that we live off of milk, cheese and ice cream all of which are very big no no's for children with this disease because it could cause handicaps, blindness, seizures and many awful side effects. After calling Nathan and sobbing on the phone and crying most of the morning we received another call saying that it was a mistake and he has a less severe form of the disease-Which means we still do soy formula every other feeding and after a year we are free to have him eat a normal diet. It was a huge relief especially since it is exactly what happened to my sister Stephanie and she is normal and healthy-and loves her cheese! Our prayers were answered once again on behalf of Nixon. He has been such a good baby. We love him so much. And Parker still can't get enough of him.
