Workouts and report of Micah's appointment

Today is day three of what I previously referred to as boot camp. The only thing is, it doesn't feel like boot camp just yet. We did the first workout on Sunday, and it was good. I am definitely sore, though not as bad as I thought I would be. However, yesterday was a scheduled rest day, so I don't feel like I have gotten into it yet. Today will be a workout day again, so it will be interesting to see what Chalene has in store for me today.

Okay, I don't remember when I started this post. I have no recollection of typing it whatsoever. It is now 3:35 p.m. and I completed my second workout a couple of hours ago. Wow. It was hard. I was worried about it because last time I made it through without too much trouble. I think I was not using heavy enough weights. I am still shaking from today's workout. Hopefully that means it will be effective.

Other than that we are having a fairly quiet day. I must mention that on Friday when I took Micah for his appointment on Friday he was too sick to get his needles. I was both annoyed and relieved by this. Nobody likes getting needles for their baby, but I did not want to drive all that way for nothing. So, I requested that we at least measure and weigh him. The doctor agreed and I went to see the nurse. When she found out he was six months old she said he had to be stripped to nothing to weigh him, which I was glad of because I thought his cloth diaper might add more weight than a disposable. (Unless it was wet...then it would be the other way around!) Anyway, he was wet, so I took the diaper off and all the rest of his clothes. So there he was, buck naked, and enjoying it. I stood him on the table facing me and got ready to transfer him to the scale. He broke into a big, irresistible, gummy grin, so I grinned back and told him just how cute he was. That's when I looked down and saw that he was peeing all over me. Yes, he soaked my shirt. Really. Soaked. I was somewhat horrified. I had no change of clothes along. I was 45 minutes away from home, but that didn't even matter because I needed to pick up my other boys from my sister-in-laws before going home. In fact, I was planning to stay there for a visit. Lucky for me, I was in and out of there so fast I left town at 11:12 a.m. and my appointment had been at 11 a.m. So, I called my sister-in-law and told her I would be heading home first to change my clothes and feed Micah, and then I would be over there. She did not mind, so it worked out well. Well, other than the fact that my shirt was soaked in pee, and my pants got some transferred to them too. Funny how the thought of that is awful and yet I was not even angry at my little sweetheart. I wasn't even that grossed out. Just uncomfortable.

It turns out that my huge baby has shrunk, which came as a bit of a surprise. Okay, that sounds a little crazy. He didn't shrink exactly. He just shrunk as far as percentiles go. He is now in the 68th percentile for height instead of the 90th, where he was a mere two months ago. His weight, rather than being somewhere around average (I think?) is now in the 38th percentile. I don't remember his head size either time. It was close to average too. So, I was surprised, but I guess Cody will remain my largest child.

Anyway, I have homework to do, and not much time til Micah wakes up to eat again. In fact, he is already overdue. I better sign off now. I can't believe it is already 3:45 p.m.! Where did the day go??? I am home alone tonight so very likely will not have a chance to do homework because Micah will need me, but I will do what I can. I better go. Bye for now!
