I think of you all almost every single day.
Without you, I would not have made it through. But life has been so crazy and things are so hectic!!!! I miss you all soooo much though! And so excited to see all the posts from new mommies.... hope all is well.
Samar turned one on April 10th. We had a traditional Indian party for him, nothing major. He's doing wellish- it's a bit hard because the dr is worrying about his constant delay in hitting milestones- no words, no attempts to pull up or walk, and falling off the growth chart is apparents some markers for some concern. He said we would schedule an eval at 15 months, if nothing has changed. I think there are delays but he's mostly ok- he's happy, responsive, and interactive. It's always just taken him a while to hit milestones but he does hit them.... I can live with that. He's also been plagued with a series of sicknesses this first year- constant wheezing/airway issues, ear infections, colds, eye infections.... it's been hard on him. Hes battling illness more than doing baby things. He ALSO has a total of 14 teeth- with two more coming in this week.... all one year old molars are in!!!!! THat has been hard on him too.
I'm doing wellish too. Happy to be back at work- over the post partum for the most part because I've learned to live one day at a time. And just enjoy it. I've been sick with bad bouts of vertigo- REALLY bad bouts- where I've laid on hte floor and waited for my mom to come watch Samar. The good news? My mom and I are doing a lot better since Samar entered our lives. He adores his grandmother and it does create a sort of bond between my mom and me.
We are trying to figure out if I have Menieres or something else- and if it IS Menieres, then no more babies for me!!!! This vertigo and deafness thing is really hard.... yes, I need hearing aids, but it's ok. I am making peace with that.
Hope you are all doing well!!! AND THE BABIES TOO!
