OK now that you have THAT song stuck in your head! LOL!
Alyssa had physical therapy today. She was beyond not in the mood. She would do things exactly once and then act like she had magically forgotten how to do them. Oh, you want me to stand up? Nah, I’d rather sit. Oh, you want me to sit on your leg? Nah, I’d rather sit on mom’s. It was, to say the least, a highly frustrating hour for all involved. She is gaining strength and control each month though and that is exceedingly obvious even on a hard day. She is about one muscle movement from getting herself into a sitting position. I know if she just does it that one time, she’ll be golden. Instead she lays in a super model pose and looks like she is ready for her bikini pics to be taken. LOL!
We go to se her GI doctor this week. I am actually pretty excited. I am hoping he will be able to help us to help her to injest more healthy calories on a day to day basis. I have been putting a tablespoon of olive oil in her night time bottle. (side note: when you begin doing something like this, please take the time to FULLY explain to your spouse. Neil thought I had replaced ALL the water in her bottle with olive oil. EWW! I could not figure out why he was so so very grossed out by a tablespoon of oil and he couldn’t figure out how I thought 4 ounces of oil in a bottle was OK! HAHA!) I figure if nothing else it may help her lessen her need for Miralax each day. She doesn’t seem to mind it and a little oil is good for you!
So, little by little! She is loving her new power wheel and getting really really good at self correcting her sitting in it 🙂 Overall, it has been pretty uneventful on our end!
