Merry Christmas

Part II

I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas. I sure did! I got a lot of toys. One of my favorite toys is a new drum. Of course, I already have like ten but I needed a new one. A much better one. I also got a swing, a glow magnadoodle, an art easel with some cool paintbrushes, some books and also some boring clothes. I got another item that mom was more excited about than I was, it was a HUGE box of diapers. It has been a hectic week already. I got to see my cousins, Luke and Drew, who are all over the place. It's hard to keep up with them. I am ready to get back to normal though. But that doesn't start again until Thursday when I go back to Ms Becky's. Anyways I'm calling it a night. Merry Christmas everyone!

Party all night long

Mom, dad and I went to St Louis for a checkup. We left yesterday and spent the night at a hotel (thanks to moms free night certificate that she won at work). We went out to eat at Texas Roadhouse with some friends of mom and dads (Jay and his girlfriend) when we got up there. They have really good rolls. I ate a whole roll so when it was time to eat my other food, I was full. It was a fun time. Afterwards, we headed back to the hotel. I got ready for bed. But I was too excited. I got to sleep in a bed all by myself. Mom and dad turned out the lights about 10:00. And I just laid in bed babbling away. I talked all night long. Mom and dad was in their own bed trying to sleep but I was too busy talking. I also thought what I had to say was funny, because in the middle of my conversation with myself, I would start laughing. Mom and dad thought I was funny too because I heard them laughing. They kept asking me what was so funny I tried to tell them the story again but they didn't understand. It was about midnight before I passed out.
About my doctor's appointment, they took another picture of my head. And then I got to see the doctor. He poked at my head and measured it and asked how I was doing. I said great. Not really, because I was exhausted from talking all night long. Instead, mom spoke up for me. He said everything looked great. My shunt is draining like it is supposed too. The only thing is my brain really hasn't expanded any from last year. That's okay because I am still learning things with the brain that I have.

Choices

In therapy today, I was the ruler of the roost. Everything we did, I got to decide if I wanted more or if I wanted to stop what we were doing. We started with the swing and after two times, I was done with it. So I pressed the stop button on the switch. The therapists wasn't too sure if they believed me, because I LOVE to swing. But I pushed that stop button with authority so they knew I meant business.
The next task was a matching game. Mom was a little worried because she didn't think I could do it. I wasn't sure myself. But it was a piece of cake. Ms Terri, showed me a circle, and then she showed me two more objects (a circle and a square), and I was supposed to choose which one matched the circle. After looking them both over, I grabbed for the circle. Mom was shocked. I think the therapists were too. So we did it again. But with different shapes. This time she showed me a star, and then two more - of a star and a triangle. I had to think about this one a little longer. But I grabbed for the right one again. I grabbed the star. Everyone clapped and was so proud of me.
The next thing on the list was giving me this strobe light - which I love. Ms Brandy, turned it on and I moved the light around and played with it for awhile. Then she turned it off. If I wanted it back, I had to press the more button on the switch. I did it instantly - 10 times in a row. But my time was running out and I had to put it away even though I kept pressing the more button. Mom told me NO MORE.

10 Times

I broke a record in therapy today. I always start off swinging, my favorite thing to do in therapy, and the therapist wants me to use the switch. The switch says 'more swinging' on one side, the other side says 'all done'. So they let me swing for awhile and then they stop me. Once they stop me I have to decide if I want to swing more or if I am all done. If I want to swing more, I have to push the 'more swinging' side of the switch; and if I am done I have to push the 'all done' side of the switch. I have been working with this switch for weeks. And the therapist usually has to show me, and take my hand and press the button a few times before I get the hang of it. But the last couple of weeks I have really started to understand the concept and she hasn't had to do hand-over-hand with me. Now I know to do it by myself. It still takes me awhile, once they stop swinging me to actually push the button. My thought process is still a little slow. But I really just take my time to annoy the therapist and mom. I didn't know, but the therapist have been counting each week on how many times I push the switch. Last week, I did it 5 times in a row all by myself. Today, I did it 10 times, yes 10 times, and then on the 11th time I finally pushed the 'all done' button. I was pooped!

video

Like I said before, mom has been trying to get a video of me talking. But I refuse to amuse her. Except the other night, I let one slip. Just a little one. As you can see from the video, I do not like the camera and I freeze up. If you be patient and listen carefully, I said dad in the video. Hopefully that will satisfy mom for awhile.

Ignoring

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. I sure did. I ate a lot of turkey and stuffing. A matter of fact, I am still eating it as leftovers. It's starting to get a little old. But I think mom and dad are too.
I am really starting to babble a lot more. I am working on perfecting the 'da' down. Every now and then, I get some other sound out like 'ga'. But I seem to not remember how to say them over and over.

Now the story behind the pictures. Mom is always trying to get a good picture of me. And well I give her a run for her money. She usually ends up getting one but I make her work for it. I have to amuse her sometimes. Well if you don't know my dad he doesn't like the camera either. So we decided to protest the other night and not look at the camera. She keeps trying to get a video of me talking so everyone can hear me. But I definitely do not cooperate then.

Weekend


I got to spend all weekend at my Grandma's house. My mom and dad went deer hunting and left me with grandma. It was just grandma and me all weekend, grandpa wasn't even there (he went with mom and dad). We did a lot of bonding. We had a lot of fun! But I was sure glad for mom and dad to come home. I was really excited to see them.
I am really getting the 'da' sound down. I say it all the time now. I am working on saying two in a row - like dada. I have said it a couple times, but I haven't mastered it yet. I'll get it eventually.

Mistaken

Apparently, according to dad, I really haven't said my first word. Before, I would make sounds like 'aaah', 'uh' and blowing raspberries. Finally I made the 'da' sound, which to dad that is also a sound and not really a word. He says I would have to put two 'da's' together and then I would have said a word. But I haven't quite done that yet. I'll be working on that. Mom still thinks it is close enough to a word.

Happy Halloween

Trick or treat
Smell my feet
Give me something
good to eat!

I dressed up as Batman this year. I was kind of excited about getting all dressed up, but I didn't know there was a mask involved. But I humored mom and kept it on, but I was glad to see it go after awhile. I got to go door to door with my cousins this year. All in all, it was fun!

da

Guess what? You won't believe what I did yesterday, I was even surprised. I SAID MY FIRST WORD!!!!! You probably can figure out what it is by the title, but it was da. And it wasn't just a freak occurance. I said it like five times in a row for mom and dad yesterday morning before they went to work and I haven't stopped saying it. Mom was so proud and dad was too. I even said it for Ms Brandy, my speech therapist and Ms Terri, my developmental therapist, today during therapy. They were very excited. I knew eventually I would get something out. But now mom of course wants me to say 'mama'. I'll try my best but I can't guarantee anything.
Of course, today is Halloween, and I am going to be Batman. I already started early trick-or-treating, I had to go by my grandma's work and to my friend Jenny's work and show off and then to therapy. Everyone thought I was adorable. I wasn't too fascinated getting all dressed up. Maybe I will be more in to it tonight when I go over to my other grandma house and my nephews house.

Excited

I love listening to music, especially piano music. So when the show Everybody Loves Raymond comes on I get really excited. At the end of every show there is a little song they play. I stop whatever I am doing and I listen and get all excited because I like the music. Watch the video and you will see.

Stuck

As you can see from the picture, I had a rough night the other night. I got a little stuck. It happened last weekend. My Aunt Jen came down from St Louis and I was busy entertaining her, that I didn't want to go to bed. Finally, around 11:00, mom said I had too go to bed. So I tossed and turned until I finally passed out. I wasn't fussy or anything, so mom never came in to check on me until she went to bed. And to her surprise she found me hanging half way out. Once she finds me like I am, you would think most moms would just get me unstuck and comfortable again. But not my mom, she turns the light on and grabs the camera. Which wakes me up, but lucky for her I was really tired and went back to sleep and slept the rest of the night. But I was ready to get up in the morning and play with my Aunt Jen again.

Pumpkin carving

Since Halloween is coming, mom, dad and I decided to carve pumpkins. Dad says it's a tradition that we carve pumpkins every year. I really didn't know what I was getting myself into, but I thought what the heck. I'll see what it is all about. Apparently, you take a pumpkin and cut the top off. Then there is all this stuff in the inside that you have to get out. And that was my job. I didn't care for it too much. It felt pretty gross. I didn't do the best getting anything out, so dad helped me. But then when you get all the stuff out, you can carve a face into the pumpkin. Which is the cool part.
I had a small pumpkin that was mine. Mom and dad also had one of their own that they carved also. Mine was a little small to actually carve a face out of, so I just made a face with markers on mine.
After we carved all the pumpkins, we set them on the front porch for everybody to see.

Waving

I have perfected the wave. Everytime someone is leaving and says bye-bye, I give them a wave back. I don't have the wrist action down yet, but I'll get there. All I do is lift my arm in the air and then smile and laugh because I know I did something I was supposed too. Mom and dad always tell me good job.
Today, in therapy, I got to swing for a long time. I kept telling them more by pressing the 'more swinging' button on my switch. So I got to keep going. But then I was starting to get tired, so I pressed the 'stop' button. Ms Brandi thought I hit it by accident. But she could tell by looking at my facial expression that I was done. I kept looking down and uninterested unlike before when I would smile and laugh after each time we stopped and took a break. So we stopped and did something else.
So we moved on to painting. I got to watercolor. You better watch out Picasso, I'm pretty good. But I got bored of that and was starting to get really sleepy. Ms Brandi was trying to get a another color for me and as I was waiting I fell asleep right in my chair with my paintbrush still in hand. But then when Ms Brandi and Ms Terri caught me, they thought I was faking, because 2 seconds before that I was wide awake and painting away. As soon as they said my name, I gave them a suspicious smile with my eyes still closed. So they weren't going to let me go that easy. Because they knew I was up to something. But I just didn't want to paint anymore. So we moved onto reading a book that I stayed awake for and paid attention too. After that my time was up and mom and I went home. I was so exhausted I didn't even eat lunch, I took a nap as soon as I got home.

Swinging

I went to the center today for therapy again. I really like going there instead of them coming to the house because of all their cool toys. I especially like the swing they have. We go back and forth, side to side, and round in circles. Sometimes they even twist me and shake me. I don't care what they do, I like it all! I definitely have to get me one of these. I sure hope I get to go back and swing some more.


video

From the video, I am just smiling. But I knew mom had the camera out. So I wasn't acting like I usually do. You should see me when she put the camera away.

New therapy spot

Not much has been going on lately. I still go to the same babsitter - Ms Becky's. I really like it there. I have made several new friends. I especially like Shelby. She is younger than me, but she always crawls up to me and lays by me. We have a special communication between the two of us, that I'm sure no one but us two would understand.
I, of course, still have therapy. For the past two weeks, I have been going to Cape to do some of my therapy. My speech therapist and developmental therapist opened up a center. So I have been going there instead of them coming to my house. It is a lot of fun there. They have a lot of cool toys that I don't have at home. Like, a ball pit, a platform swing, and they also have a sensory room. That room is pretty cool. I think I am going to keep going there just so I can swing.

Switches

One of my new things in therapy is learning how to use switches. My speech therapist thought this would be a great communication tool for me. There are two sides to the switch - a red side and a yellow side. You can hook it up to certain toys and when you touch the side you have the toy hooked up to it turns the toy on. But it only works with toys that are switch-adaptive. I have an Elmo and a Elmo and Ernie bumper car toy that are switch activated. And since it is hard for me to turn these type of toys on like you would normally, the switch helps me out by me just pressing the button. It's pretty cool. You can also record a saying on the switch. So when you press the button, it will also say whatever you want it to say. You can use it in so many other ways too. Ms Brandy, my speech therapist, also wants me to have two choices and be able to have preferences. So with the switch, you can have one side be a certain thing and the other side another thing. And whenever I push one side or the other that is the thing that I get. And she wants to see if I prefer one over the other by choosing one more than the other. For example, she may have one side of the switch say "drum" and the other say "Elmo". And then when I push 'drum' she lets me play with my drum for a few minutes. And then she takes it away and won't bring it back until I push the switch again. And then if I push the 'Elmo' side, then Elmo will do his thing. He has a song that he sings. It's kind of funny. I like it a little but I like my drum more, because you can hit it and I like to hit things. So of course, I push the 'drum' button more. And I have learned pretty quick that once you take the drum or Elmo away, I have to press the switch again to get it back. Ms Brandy is really proud that I can do it and that I am making a preference between two toys. I can use it for so many other things than just playing. I haven't tried it too much yet besides that though. But mom has tried using it during lunch time the other day. One side said 'drink' and the other 'food'. After she gave gave me a few bites she wanted me to pick if I wanted more food or a drink. I wasn't patient enough and neither was mom. So we forgot that idea. I just wanted to eat.

Great Fall

Humpty dumpty sat on a wall
Humpty dumpty had a great fall!
Well I wasn't sitting on a wall and it wasn't the greatest fall. But if you look at the pictures real close, my face says it all in the second one. And as you can see dad wasn't much help and thought it was awefully funny. But there was no harm done. After the fact, I usually think its kind of funny and think it's a game.

PB & J

I found another food I love - that would be peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. I really like it a lot. I have some trouble chewing it up though, because it gets stuck to the top of my mouth but I get it eventually. If not I savor it for another time.

Checkup

I had my 2 year checkup today. I have gained some weight in the past 6 months but not much. I weigh a whole 18 lbs 3.5 oz. I swear if anybody is on a diet they should take my advice and eat whatever they want. Because apparently eating a lot of fatty foods doesn't really pack on the pounds.
Here's my diet menu free of charge:
Bottle of whole milk when I wake up
Breakfast: honeybun or pancakes with extra butter & syrup
Lunch: mac-n-cheese, potatoes, or peanut butter and jelly
Snack: Little Debbie snack and chocolate milk
Supper: whatever mom and dad are eating with extra butter
Bedtime snack: bottle of whole milk
Mom thinks my diet only works for me. But if anyone is interested let me know how it goes. Other than that my checkup went well. The doctor wasn't too concerned about my weight this time. As long as I am not losing any weight.
This week I started going to my new babysitter - Ms Becky. I think I am really going to like it there. I've already made some new friends. But I think I scared Ms Becky on my first day. I had to break her in and throw up everywhere. She was a little concerned so she called mom at work. But mom assured her that that just happens sometimes. Other than that we got a long just great.

Happy Birthday

Yesterday was my big birthday party. The weather cooperated and it was a very nice day. It was kind of warm but that was good because everyone wanted to be in the pool. I think everyone had a good time, but I especially had a great time. I got to go swimming. And it was nothing like before, like at the hotel swimming pool. The water was much warmer and I enjoyed it a lot. I swam around in my little floaty and kicked my feet. Then I got to eat and everyone sang happy birthday to me and I got to eat my favorite kind of cake - Ice Cream Cake! It was delicious!! And finally I got to open all my presents. I was kind of exhausted by this point, so my cousins and my friends helped me open them. But I tolerated it enough to make everyone happy. I got a lot of cool stuff. I got another drum, a maraca, some books and some other toys. But I was too exhausted to play with them. I am sure I will play with them later. By the time everybody left I was pooped and passed out in bed. I slept really good and even all night long.

Vacation

Mom has been on vacation since last Wednesday. And man have we been busy. It doesn't seem like much of a vacation, except that I got to see her everyday for the whole day. We have had a lot of fun and have also gotten a lot done around the house. We are trying to get ready for my big birthday bash. I'm going to have a pool party. So we have finally gotten our pool up and running. But man is it a lot of work. But I think it is going to be worth it. I even got in the pool when we were filling to up. I didn't like it too much because the water was very cold!Then on Saturday, the whole family - mom, dad and me, grandma and grandpa, Aunt Jen and Uncle Jason, Uncle Dave, Aunt Tori and my cousins Luke and Drew - all went to St Louis for the day and spent the night up there. We went to Grants Farm. It was a lot of fun!! We got to see a lot of animals and even got to feed the baby goats, if they didn't eat you first. They were very aggressive and wanted to be fed even if you didn't have a bottle of milk to feed them. They would chew on your shoes, on your shorts, and on anything they could get there mouths on. But I wasn't scared of the goats like most kids were. There were some kids there that were screaming at the top of their lungs, because they were scared of them. But I was also being protected from mom and dad or whoever was holding me. The goats were the best thing out of the whole trip.



Then we went back to the hotel and took a nap. After that we decided to go swimming. But I was not to fond of the pool. I thought the water was very cold. I stiffened my whole body up as soon as I touched the water. But now the hot tub was much better. I floated around in there for a long time.
We came home on Sunday, to finish up putting more water in our pool and completely finishing it. So we are all set for my party now.

Busy

Sorry it has been so long since I have updated everyone. I have been extremely busy lately. We have been working so hard trying to get our pool up and running again. My Uncle Jason and Aunt Jen even came down the other weekend to help. And it seems we have been working on it everyday since then. I haven't done to much except supervise but I have been extra good and patient while mom and dad do all the work. I just sit outside in my chair and supervise. We are hoping to have it open by my birthday, because I am going to have a huge birthday bash! So cross your fingers.

Mosquito magnet

Apparently, I am a mosquito magnet. Mom, dad and I have been taking a walk everynight this week. And I feel like I have been getting eatin alive. Mosquitos are attracted to me. And man do they itch. If you think my leg looks bad in the picture I got some more the next night on my other leg and arms. Mom put some anti-itch cream on them which helps a little bit. She also tried putting some clear fingernail polish to dry them out and that seemed to help pretty quick. So the next time we go out for a walk I'll be sure to wear some bug spray because mosquito bites suck :(

My Aunt Jen and me!

New babysitter

Just chillin'
Not much has been going on lately. Same ol' same ol'. I did get to see my Aunt Jen and Uncle Jason this past weekend. It was nice to see them. I also tried to go to church again. I told mom I didn't want to go because I hate the sound of the orghan. But did she listen to me....NO!! She did try and put cotton balls in my ears to try and mute the sound but that didn't phase me a bit. So she told me I don't have to go anymore. Today, I got to meet my new babysitter. Her name is Ms. Becky. She is very nice and I think I am going to like it there. But I don't get to go there until August. Starting in July my 2 grandmas are going to take turns watching me while mom and dad are at work. I will really like that and get some extra attention.

DareDevil


Well I got another haircut. I was due for another one. But of course I threw a fit the whole time dad was cutting my hair. But I look so much better and I don't have to take the extra time to comb it anymore it's so short.
I also became a daredevil. I was at home with dad the other day. And I was laying on the couch and dad ran upstairs to get me lunch. While he was gone I inched my way to the edge of the couch. And guess what I landed right on my head. I didn't even cry, I thought it was funny. When dad came back downstairs I was on the floor just smiling. No harm done, but I don't get to lay on the couch anymore by myself.

Favorites

I got to spend the whole weekend with mom AND dad. Mom got the whole weekend off and of course dad has that cushy office job so he was home also. We did so much stuff and I figured out that I like a few new things too. We went shopping and bought a new swing for the porch and we put that together this weekend. I really enjoyed it once we got it all together. We will be spending a lot of time outside now. I also was introduced to some new foods this weekend and found a liking for them too. The first was chocolate milk. I had a bottle for a snack and I ended up drinking the whole bottle and wanting some more. The other was White Castle cheeseburgers. We were on our way home from Lowes and stopped to get something to eat. The chose was McDonalds or White Castle. Mom and dad were arguing between the two. And dad ended up winning. So White Castle it was. They got a cheeseburger for me, and I ate the whole thing. It was delicious. Mom couldn't believe I liked it especially with all the onions on it. Those are my two favorite foods nowadays. I am sure it will change next week. Who knows.

Temper Tantrum

The other day I finally decided to test mom. She was trying to feed me supper in my chair in the living room. I took 2 bites and then I noticed the tv was on and decided I wanted to watch tv instead of eating supper. Well mom didn't think that was a good idea. So she told me if I don't start eating she is going to turn the tv off. Well I didn't want to listen. So guess what? She turned the tv off. Can you believe she would do that, I didn't. So I gave her my evil eye and then started crying. But then I got really mad, mad enough I decided to hold my breath until my face turned red. Well a minute went by and mom finally gave in and turned the tv back on. I knew I would break her....and it only took a minute. After that I was happy and I started eating. Now I know what I can get away with and I got her wrapped around my little finger.

aaahh

I got to see my cousins, Ollie and Tori this past weekend. They are really silly. But so am I. We went to the park but I was so exhausted that I really didn't care to much about it. We hung out some more at my Grandma Vickie's.

I am really starting to try and make more sounds. I try so hard to get something other than "AAAHH" to come out but for some reason that is all that make for now.

Outside

We finally got our front porch finished this week. If any of you don't know what I am talking about, we have been doing some remodeling on the house. We extended our roof out in the front of the house, so now we have a brand new front porch. I like it a lot! Mom and I sat out on it today. I watched mom sweep the driveway and plant some flowers. I love being outside as long as I am in the shade. I don't like the sun too much.

My New Seat

Here is another one of my new contraptions. I got another device from my therapists. It is a seat that helps support me while I sit up. And I can sit up almost all day in it and not get worn out. It is also adjustable, I can put it to where I am sitting straight up or recline it just a little or a lot. But I like it almost all the way up. Because now I can see what's going on. I even got one to take to the babysitters. I like it a lot there because I can watch the other kids run around. It's especially nice on saturday mornings when I watch cartoons.

New Splints

I got some new splints for my hands that I am not to happy about. I have 2 different ones. One that I wear at night and sometimes when I take a nap and then another one that I normally wear during the day all the time now. The one that I wear at night (the one in the picture), stretches my hand out really good. It pulls my thumb and all of my fingers straight. I really don't like this one. It hurts a little but I am usually asleep when mom puts them on me so it doesn't bother me. The other one is a lot smaller, it is very similar to the one I had before. All it does is pull my thumb out, but I can still grab and pick up my toys. Which is very important. I don't know what I would do if I couldn't hold my favorite drum stick and my rings. Hopefully these splints will help open my hands up and be able to use them better.
I thought I only had to wear these when I am sleeping. I am awake so get theses things off me.

Happy Easter

I had a pretty good Easter. I got to go over to Grandma and Grandpa's on Saturday. Everybody was there, my Aunt Jen and Uncle Jason, Uncle Dave and Aunt Tori and my cousins Luke and Drew. I was so exhausted I didn't even hunt easter eggs, I let Luke and Drew do all the work. But I still got to take home some of the goodies.

I guess one of my favorite parts was hanging out with Drew though. He really is extra nice to me and always giving my kisses and always wanting to be right next to me. I can't wait until I get bigger so we can play together.

Better

I am feeling much better this week. My fever finally broke completely on Saturday. And I am back to my normal self. I am also back on schedule - back to the babysitters, back to eating better and back to sleeping better.

Fever

Well, after 12 hours of being at the hospital and 2 different hospitals. I still am not sure why I have a fever. They think I may just have a flu. Wednesday afternoon, I broke out with a high fever, mom gave me some medicine and cooled me down a little bit. But after my nap, mom took my temperature again and it was back up again. So mom called the doctor and he told us to go to the ER since his office was already closed. He wanted us to go and get a scan done to make sure my shunt was still working okay. Well we get to the hospital about 5:00pm and finally got to see the doctor after 3 hours of waiting. Good thing it wasn't too much of an emergency. First they wanted to do some blood work and take a chest x-ray to rule out anything else. After several hours of waiting on that, everything came back okay. So now they said the only way to find out if the shunt had an infection was to tap the shunt. What they do with that is stick a needle in my head and pull out fluid from my shunt. The only problem is that the doctors down here in Cape don't do that. So they sent us up to Children's hospital to get that done. So now the time is 10:30pm. So that was pretty much a waste of 5 1/2 hours. At about 1:00 we got up to the hospital. And of course the waiting game continues. They did all the tests and scans they needed and all came back fine. The doctors said that I would just have to tough it out and there wasn't much they could do. So at 5:00am we headed back home. What a long day. But I was a tropper and was very good. I stayed awake most of the time and slept part of the way there and part of the way back. So today I took several naps to catch up on my beauty sleep.

No More Cars


Mom and dad finally bought me the movie Cars. After I had been begging for it since Christmas. But thats not the point. I have heard so many good things about it and how good it is. Well I think it is the worst movie ever. Mom you can just take it back to the store. I don't know what everybody was talking about, it was very scary to me. All of the racing and loud noise was not appealing. I thought I would like it because I like when you make car sounds and crashing noises. But on tv it is a different story. It's much scarier. So no more of that at least for awhile.

Pinkeye


Guess what happens when you go to the babysitters? Apparently, everything that everybody else has, from colds to pinkeye. I came home on Monday and my eye was all matted shut, swollen and red everywhere. So I spent the next two days at my Grandma Vickie's, when mom and dad were at work. Wednesday, I even got to see my Aunt Tresa and Uncle Huts. They were down for the day, and I was glad to see them because its been awhile. I have been on an antibiotic to clear up my eye and it looks much better and I went back to the babysitters on Thursday. So I guess we will just have to wait and see what I come down with next.

Drool machine


Well I am fully over my sinus infection. I was starting to feel much better a couple days ago but I still felt sluggishly and not very active. But I am ready to go now. To add to the sickness, I also had another tooth come in. It's been so long that I forgot how it felt. I haven't had one come in for several months. So now I only have 3 more to go. And then I guess it will be time for my 2-year molars. It's a never ending process. This one didn't to seem to bother me to much except all of the wet collars and sheets after I got done laying on them. I think the other ones are coming in right behind one another, because I am still drooling an awful lot.

Pass it on


Well I'm feeling much better. Even good enough to stick my tongue out for a picture. But the bad news is that I passed it on, mom and dad both are feeling bad now. Life is much better!! And back to the babysitters in the morning.
