|Dominic and Kaylee on New Year's day.|
|Headed to the park with my loves, 01/02/2013.|
|Kids in our bed on Tim's birthday morning.|
Kaylee continues to do well.. I weighed her the other day and she is now 12 pounds... a chunker! She has the cutest rolls of skin and fat on her thighs! She is still nursing well... too well as she still won't take a bottle. :( I love nursing her, please don't get me wrong, but I'm terrified that when it's time for me to go back to work she'll still be refusing the bottle. I'm also getting nervous... she has her second consultation tomorrow morning with the Children's Hospital Pediatric Ear, Nose, and Throat specialist... this time it's the head of the ENT Department so that's comforting. When I talked with the office staff on the phone they mentioned that if they can do the ear tag surgery in the Walnut Creek office they will do it likely on 1/24/2013. I know I want to get it done but ITS . JUST . SO . NERVE . WRACKING. I know I will be a mess that day. What's funny is I think I've been on a journey with Kaylee's skin tag... At first I was shocked and worried, then embarrassed about the ear tag, then embarrassed about being embarrassed about my daughter. When she was just born and probably up until last month I purposely tried to take pictures of only the right side of her face showing... and when we would go out I worried what friends and people would say/think. Now I don't care. She is beautiful to me. Kaylee, on the other hand has started tugging, pulling, and straight out yanking the ear tag.
Dominic is also doing well.. he has stopped (for the most part) having potty accidents at school. We started a reward system where every day he is dry at school he gets a $1 to put in his treasure box.. then as his treasure box fund grows he can buy stuff.. so he bought a game for his LeapPad recently. He told me what game he wanted to get, I told him how much it cost ($10), he counted out $10, gave me the money, and I bought the game. I like this because he feels an ownership in the ability to buy stuff because he worked to get the $. Dominic is still not the greatest listener but we are working on that. He loves school, doing homework, and is able to read quite a few words.
