Yay! So the doctor confirmed yesterday on the check-up visit that the antibiotics seems to have done the trick. The ear, nose and throat infections have all receded, the various swellings are down, her chest is open again – in other words Jessie is back to full health again!
Okay, so little Jessica is still no where near being able to crawl on her own – but that doesn’t mean that Daddy can’t have fun for her during her daily pillow tummy time! :)
One of the best things about living in Gordon’s Bay and so close to the beach is arriving home after a long day’s work, grabbing the wife and baby, packing the pram into the boot (it’s quite a squash in the little Getz just in case you were wondering) and darting off to catch the last rays of light along the beautiful and usually tranquil Gordon’s Bay main beach.
What a bonus, Jessica slept just about all the way through on Monday evening! She’s been quite niggly for the last week or so, particularly during the evening, something that can either be attributed to a side-effect from her shots (states so on the packaging) or perhaps just because of the unbearable heat and humidity we have endured over the last little while. Anyway, we put her to bed after a good feed late evening and come morning when the tell-tale hunger cries began emanating from the nursery, we were quite surprised to see that it was already past 05:00 in the morning! Score! :)
So little Jessica is doing well, thanks for asking. No, I haven’t been posting all that much about her up on these pages, but rest assured that is simply because the little floppy dribble monster is happily keeping her parents quite busy with her sleep, cry, change nappy, feed, burp, sometimes bath, rinse and repeat routine.
