After two days of no vomiting we had a little incident today. Mid-afternoon before my appointment with Terry, my special ed teacher, Mommy came out to check on me. I had just finished a feeding (today I was back to my 20 minute feeds) and when I saw Mommy I got excited. Mommy thinks that is what got me coughing and eventually vomiting. Later in the day, though, I took two more feedings without a problem. Mommy thinks there must be a bullseye on her that says, "Throw up here please!"
I had lots of fun playing with Terry today. She brought a book with pictures of toys velocroed to it. Whenever I would pull off the picture and hand it to Terry she would pull the toy out of her bag and I would get to play with it. Mommy gave Terry some pictures of things that I like (water bottle, my lovie, Elmo, Baby Signing Time DVD) and she is going to laminate them and put velcro on them so we can create a poster board that I can use the same way. Then I can show my parents what I want in addition to signing it.
My hand surgery got rescheduled today - but not until May 21st. Such a long way off but I think my parents are happy not to have to worry about it for awhile.
I discovered in the last few days that I have two lovies. Usually, my parents hide one in a drawer while I use the other one and then when I am asleep they switch them and throw one in the wash. I am pretty observant, though, and I noticed when Mommy was putting away the laundry that there was another lovie in the drawer. Whenever I see the second lovie I whine to get it and then I hold both of them as I make my way around the house. What can be better than two lovies!
