January 3 - Leftover Monday & Update on Luke

Little man has decided to go on a nursing, that means the primary form of nutrition for this little guy he no longer wants. Luckily he'll take a bottle, but pumping and bottle feeding is a lot of work! I much prefer popping a boob in his mouth and going from there. We are about 36 hours in, so we'll see how long this lasts.

Luke did go in for a follow-up regarding his issues with solid food and they decided to draw blood for allergy testing after hearing of his continued symptoms and seeing the dozen or dozen and a half patches of eczema all over his body. Drawing blood from a baby is probably the most awful thing I've had to witness, but with any hope, it will provide some answers. On a separate note, Lindsay had her 3 year check-up, too, and passed with flying colors at 37 inches tall and 31 lbs (50th percentile for both height and weight).

With Luke's nursing strike, we slept just shy of four hours last night, so needless to say, I'm barely functioning right now. We're going to eat the leftover pork and sauerkraut tonight (at least I am). I also desperately need to grocery shop, so I'm going to try to get there Wednesday or Thursday. Far more interesting meals are to come next week!
