Polina has been going to daycare for about 2 weeks now. She goes 3 times a week and loves it. It's too hard with my heart condition to be lifting her and chasing her around the house and plus with the pregnancy I am totally beat. I am on heart meds and doing lovenox injections 2x a day in the belly just as a prevention since I'm pregnant it complicates things. After the baby is born I will be having heart ablation done. I have to wait a couple of months to heal from the c-section and to prevent blood clots I have to wait till my hormones level goes down so another thing no breast feeding I wanna take care of this soon as possible.Randy does all the grocery shopping and errands.I play with Polina on the floor or on the couch since its too much for me to be running around. I am looking forward for this baby to be out so I can feel better and lighter.Polina has been doing really well. She says mama,dada,no of course,bye bye,up,down and all her body parts names elbows,knees,neck etc....She even does animal sounds especially the elephant .She even throws her arm in the air like the elephant trunk.She is a good sleeper. she goes to bed around 730 and sleeps till 7 in the morning and when its daycare time she wakes up at 6. she always wakes up with a smile on her face and is never grumpy. She also takes naps 2-3 hours. The teacher at the daycare said that right after she eats her lunch she heads straight to her cot and sleep 2 2/1 hours. She is very chatty returning from daycare since other children talk a lot more than her. She has gained 2 and a half pounds since we brought her home on November 16 so now she weights in at a whopping 24 and a half pounds. She loves to eat and is not picky at all. She eats watermelon,peas,green beans,broccoli,carrots,cottage cheese i mean everything. one thing she doesn't like is juices so she only drinks water or milk. we are glad that she doesn't care for the juices less sugar for her. My mom makes her every two days soups from scratch.My mom will make her barley soup,beat soup,cauliflower soup and she loves them all. I have to say we are pretty lucky to have such a great girl. On the other hand she does throw some terrible fits when she doesn't get her way. She does bang her head and hits herself in the face. We are working on that and I have to say she did get better but we still have a long way to go. Besides the tantrums she is a great girl and we are so very lucky to have her in our lives.
