Thursday, June 26, 2008 - Update

I was proud of Olivia today as she started banging on her Bumbo tray. Rainbows wanted me to try to get her to do that, but it was one of those things. . .you can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink. (Why do all of my analogies have horses in them? It must be my niece, Katie, rubbing off on me.) She learned that when she banged on the tray, it activated the music on her Sing-A-Long stage. So, she'd listen to a song and when it was over, she'd bang on it to hear another. I was so proud.

She surprised me at her 2 pm bottle by throwing up most of her 6 oz bottle. It caught me by complete surprise as she normally does not vomit in the afternoon. I bet it took me 45 minutes to get her cleaned up, get myself cleaned up, change clothes, clean the chair, clean the carpet, throw the clothes in the washer and make her a new bottle. She has now started smacking her lips when she's hungry and bless her heart. . .she just waited patiently in her crib while smacking her lips. Neither of us are having a very good day, though.

My rat did have surgery today. They spayed her and removed 3 lumps. She is out of surgery, awake and waiting for me to pick her up. The bad news is that I have to keep her separated from Lucy for 2 weeks. Lucy hasn't known what to do today without her best friend. She is not even sleeping in their special spot.

Way to go Olivia!

However, I'm sorry that the two of you haven't had a really great day.
