Early riser

I was up extra early this morning. I went to bed about 9:30 last night and got up at 4:00 this morning and wanted to stay up. Mom gave me a bottle and after that I was wide awake. I think she was hoping I would go back to sleep for a couple more hours. But she was wrong. I was smiling and talking the whole time. I finally thought I should go back to sleep around 6:30 when dad got up, so I didn't get to see him before he went to work. Hopefully I will see him tonight, since I didn't see him much yesterday. Supposedly I was sleeping when he was home yesterday for a few hours and then he had to work last night. But will play tonight.

I also had to get back into the routine of therapy. I got a rude awakening yesterday. I'm going to have to remember another name and face. Mom signed me up for speech therapy. So now I have physical, occupational and speech therapy that each come once a week for a whole hour. Man am I going to be busy. I was really good for the speech therapist. I talked almost the whole time she was here. She is going to work on getting more sounds that come out of my mouth like "mamama" or "bababa". Because right now I'm just saying vowel sounds like "aaaaa" or "ooooo". She's also going to work with me on looking to the left side more because I like to favor the right. And also follow voices.

I'm still working on the same things in PT and OT. They are making me sit up and getting my neck muscles stronger by laying me on my belly. I used to not like laying on my belly but I don't mind it anymore. They are also doing some weight bearing on my elbows and shoulders to make me stronger. They say I am improving every week.

Week off

Well, back to reality. Mom and dad are back from Mexico and I'm done getting spoiled by everyone. Man was that a lot of fun. I didn't have to do therapy all week, I got to spend time with both of my grandmas and grandpa and I got to eat stuff that I probably shouldn't of ate. They held me and talked to me the whole time. But when mom called I never said anything because I was mad at her for not letting me go along. But I had just as much fun as they did. I was really good for everyone that took care of me. I got up once during the night a couple times. But I was just scared because I didn't know where I was at. But then I saw some familiar faces and I was just fine. I mainly just wanted to talk when I got up and tell them my dreams.
But I was sure glad to see mom and dad when they got home. I was sleeping but they just had to wake me up and see my big blue eyes. I even gave them a quick smile. I even let them sleep in. I didn't get up until 8:30 the next morning. I was exhausted too. But the next morning, I had to tell mom and dad how much fun I had and what I all did. I wouldn't stop talking. I was so glad to see them.

Hear me roar

Well I still have this cold but I guess its not too bad. It's not bad enough for mom and dad to stay home from their cruise. My plan didn't work. I sure am going to miss them. But I have a feeling I'm going to get a lot of attention and spoiled while they are gone. I get to stay with my cousins one night, my grandma Vickie's another night and my grandma and grandpa's the rest. So I'm looking forward to that.Even though I haven't felt so good. I have still been in a very good mood. I have been smiling and laughing all the time. I discovered I have a voice and I want to be heard. My dad had to work over night last night and he was wanting to sleep all day. But I wasn't going to let that happen. Mom finally had to take me to the basement and we hung out down there all day.

I haven't felt so hot the past two days. I've had this cough and blocked up nose for the past several days. But it seems like it got worse over the weekend. I couldn't sleep very well because I couldn't breathe out of my nose and that wasn't very comfortable. So I kept mom up as she held me and rocked me and that felt much better. It only seems bad when I go to bed and lay down for a nap.

But today I feel much better. I still can't breathe out of my nose the best but I think I'm getting over it. Mom says I better not get too sick, because she says she is leaving me next week. I'm not sure what that means but she says I get to stay with my grandmas. So that sounds like fun!

Rub A Dub Dub

I love taking baths. Mom gives me a bath every night and I love it. She cleans me all up and then I get to kick and splash water everywhere. Its a blast! Until I kick so much and get water in my eyes. Thats not much fun.

I've been sleeping very well at night. I usually go to bed pretty late (10:00), but then I don't get up till about 7:00. I slept in really late this morning. I didn't get up until 8:00. I thought mom could get some beauty sleep. Ain't I nice. I am a pretty nice guy.

One, Two, Three

One tooth, two teeth, three teeth

I got another tooth this morning. It poked through sometime last night. So that makes it two teeth on the bottom and one tooth on top. I'm getting so big and growing up so fast. Now I can really grind them together. They haven't bothered me too bad. I just chew on my hand a lot and have wet shirts all the time from me drooling.

I finally got another tooth. The one on top has finally came in. Now I have one on the bottom and on the top. So where is that hamburger. My favorite thing to do now is grind the two teeth together. It drives my mom crazy. Now mom thinks I have to brush my teeth. But I just like chewing on the toothbrush. I have also graduated from my infant carseat. Now I have this big new convertible carseat. It even has a cupholder. So I'll be cruisin' now.
