It seems that despite the intense truffle cravings I had during my pregnancy, consuming more than a single brownie, or candy bar makes my milk not only difficult for Simon to digest, but he refuses to eat it all together. At least, I think that's what the issue is lately. I noticed when we had chocolate ice cream, and I had a healthy helping...that Simon would fuss a LOT while nursing later that day and have gas issues. Then, Angie made me these fabulous brownies upon my request (i am shameless) and I had 3 of them in a 24 hour period. Simon went on a hunger strike and screamed from 10pm-2am. As much as I love chocolate--and have a severe addiction, the pain that Simon goes through, and the sleep that I lose are not worth it. I am going to go a week free--and if he nurses better, and the freak outs end, the I know I'm onto something. Tonight...it's 11:30, and he's sleeping, not crying so far, my theory is right. Even though it means a year of little to no chocolate, I really hope that I'm right, because that 3 hour cry is so sad, and if I'm wrong, then it means I have no clue what could be causing his pain.
Karlie and her kids (Jay 3 and Karah 18 months) came over Saturday for a play date. Um, it was the best play date ever, no offense to others that Aves and I have play dates with. There were no fights-no melt downs-no power struggles-a day of miracles if I do say so. They came up from 1-5 and then we followed them back to Salt Lake so that Dan and Chris could meet. Karlie made this fabulous black bean soup---mmmmm so delicious! We hung out until 9:30 when Karlie and I were pretty much pinching eacother to stay awake, and yet the kids were still going strong. 8 hours of playing together without a single screech. Sure there were a half dozen "NO!" to eachother, but nothing like what we experience on a daily basis with our kids alone, let alone when we have play dates. I guess the only way to see if it was a fluke is to get together again ... and soon. haha. yes! Pictures to be uploaded at a later time, because I'm too tired to do so now.
Ok must pump and then attempt to get some sleep before Simon wakes.
