- Our ward Christmas party was on Saturday. I decided to go just to get out of the house and Kimball also needed some socializing.
- The past four nights Cora has been up about every hour. I wonder if it's acid reflux or something but I'm trying everything I can to get her back on schedule and figure out if anything is wrong. Last night I put her back to bed in the car seat and she slept great! I don't know if it's because she's more propped up or because she's snuggled tighter.....I prefer her sleeping in the crib but I also prefer my sleep so I'm not sure what I'm going to do now.
- Sunday night I caught Kimball's stomach flu. I was up all night writhing in pain and throwing up. Combine that with very little sleep and two children.....not fun! Luckily we have a great ward and I called a favor in to a friend who took Kimball all day while Lance stayed home from work to take care of Cora. Luckily it was short lived, just a 24 hour flu and I feel great right now.
- Kimball is still adjusting to Cora. He doesn't like that I have to give my attention to feeding her or to taking care of the house, so he's been more whiny. Feeding times have become story and singing time for him. I wish I knew how to better balance my attention to his needs without neglecting Cora or what needs done around the house.
There are pros and cons to every job, he's really going to miss the flex staff. Vicki actually cried when she found out he was starting a new position, that was sweet. There are new challenges at Ball & Dodd that didn't exist at the care center so he'll have to face all those head on. He'll have new responsibilities that are different, be working directly with different coworkers, and much more involved in the crematory (about 40% of his time). But overall, this is a great opportunity. We moved to Spokane because of opportunity and we can't very well turn down a promotion, so he accepted the position. What a blessing! He has a great boss, great coworkers, and most importantly he loves doing what he does for a living. We are surely blessed!
