Oh baby, baby.

So I’m sitting here in the dark. One arm cradling Gabriela. Trying not to make any sudden movements because she’s got a bad case of the ‘babies’ today! I brag and brag about how wonderful she is: sleeping through our 12 hr flight from Jacksonville to Puerto Rico; our multiple trips between housing and our house; and dealing with these warm ass Puerto Rican days.

Well today, she just wanted to remind us that indeed she is a baby and we’ve had it easy. And it really began three days ago when she hadn’t pooped all day. Did you know that exclusively breast fed babies, aka EBF (there’s even a Facebook group) can go up to 14 days without pooping!?!? Now that just doesn’t seem right. But gabi didn’t go until today: 3 days!

So maybe she was just ticked off that she didn’t have her normal 4+ poops a day and she just wanted to make it known. Or maybe she’s just being a baby.

All I know is: my father is working on arranging furniture, my husband is out fetching dinner (no easy feat just yet), and I’m sitting in the dark with my darling little one. Inconvenient. Sure. Frustrating. Perhaps. But I figure there could be worse things. As long as she’s happy and comfy, I’m happy and comfy.

Let’s hope for a better day tomorrow!!

Let’s just hope my left arm works tomorrow.

    Welcome to he nicest part of Puerto Rico, Isabela. Yes… culture shock is right. Dothan, AL to Isabela? Wow. My wife and daughter and I moved here about 6 years ago from Miami. Her parents live here. And this is pretty wild…my daughters name is Gabriela. She just turned 13. Where do you guys live? We are about 1/2 mile from the town plaza headed West on #459. Glad you found my blog…
