Waiting to hear “I love you Mama”

Love comes in moments

covering me up when I am not feeling well

putting your hand on my chin and looking in my eyes

crawling on my lap and snuggling in when you are tired

you show me you love me

I wait to hear it, but for now I can treasure the small momments.

 At Zane’s ped appointment yesterday he weighed in at 42 lbs (75th percentile) and 43 1/4 inches (90th percentile).  We also weighed Zora with clothes on.  She was 11lbs 2oz fully dressed, so probably about 10 1/2 lbs normally.  The dr. and several nurses said they couldn’t believe how much she had grown. hee hee.  _heartbeat

Zane had his regular peds appointment yesterday. It went pretty well.  Zane was reasonably cooperative, although he started getting grumpy as the appointment went on because he started getting hungry.  (he wouldn’t eat before we left)

She is referring us on to an pediatric allergist to see if he has food intolerances that are contributing to the softer stools.  Until we get that controlled better, we can’t really ask him to learn how to use the potty.  The allergy history in my family certainly warrants investigation of this angle. 

She is also trying to get us into a developmental pediatrician, but right now the soonest we can get in is a year away.  She is going to look around to see if there is somebody else.  I am going to call Prairieview and confirm that they won’t accept my insurance because I am the resident of a different county.  That is what they told me when I called the first time, but I want to make sure the person knew what they were talking about and see what they would charge out of pocket before abandoning that route entirely. 

They weren’t able to test his eyes from a distance because we couldn’t get him to focus on the chart, but when we were nearer he impressed the test-givers and the other Ped by calling the moon shape a “crescent” instead of “moon”.  lol.  (he also calls it moon sometimes, but I think it doesn’t make sense to him that the moon isn’t always that shape yet people call it ‘moon’ when they refer to shapes, which is pretty observant if you ask me!)  He passed a rudimentary screening at WSU, and we aren’t really worried about his vision since he can draw and interact on the computer the way he does.  The nurse mentioned going to the optomologist, but the doctor didn’t.  (guess I need to call back and check, but I don’t really think there is a serious problem there.  it is worth checking though if we can since I am the only person in my family not legally blind without glasses)

The nurse had a rough time checking his ears, but since we were cleared in the hearing test earlier this week they didn’t worry about it too much.  I did have to hold him again for the doctor to check his ears, but he wasn’t fighting quite as bad as he has through most of the week.  Hey, if we can try to have somebody check his ears every day for the next month, he might let somebody do it without fighting as hard.  He has had it happen almost every day this week already.

i am sorry i haven’t been posting many comments to people.  i am reading, i just have to type one handed and even that is limited sometimes because the keyboard is at an angle where i can’t see the letters very well or it isn’t getting a good connection (wireless).  therefore, i do a lot more reading than commenting these days.  be assured that i am still visiting, just more of a lurker these days.

that is also the reason for so many picture only posts…i can do that with one hand.  lol.

hearing test went well today!  the lady was really gentle and good with him.  he passed just fine.  if he gets more able to do a more precice test, they will retest him to see exactly where his hearing is, but he can clearly hear just fine. 

thrush is better for her, but mine is a touch worse (probably because i was out of the house and had to wear a bra)
