+ 0 - 0 | § Lofty Goals

Alex had an appointment with his pediatrician today.  First off, he's now a whopping 17 lbs, 6 oz, and is closing in on the growth curve for kids his age.  He's still below the 5th percentile, but if you take his prematurity into account, he's right at the 5th percentile and growing at a rate that is higher than normal.  Go Alex!  With that in mind, his doc wants to try to push Alex's oral feeding.  He thinks that Alex is being lazy somewhat...since he's being fed through the tube, he doesn't feel it necessary to eat solids.  So, the doc is going to talk to Alex's OT to come up with a feeding plan, with the (lofty) goal of getting rid of Alex's feeding tube by 15 months!  I personally don't think it's possible, but I'm certainly willing to give it a shot.

+ 0 - 0 | § Even the wallpaper!

I don't know what it is about Alex and his cats.  Dan found out the other day that it doesn't even have to be a live cat...he took Alex into our guest room, which has a wallpaper border with cats and butterflies.  A few minutes later, Alex started turning to look at the wall and laughing, so Dan started making cat sounds and saying "Here kitty, kitty!"  Well, that sent Alex into a five-minute laughing fit.  Who would have thought that a kid who isn't even supposed to be able to recognize images yet would be so attached to his kitties that he would laugh at wallpaper.  We tried to videotape it on Sunday to put it up on here, but he's a really big ham and wouldn't stop looking at the camera.

In other news, Alex still is on an eating downturn, though his OT doesn't seem particularly concerned.  She said that it could be one of a million reasons, that it happens to most kids like him, and that it will probably go in waves.  We're still trying though, and the Cheetos are definitely boosting morale somewhat.  He ate a whole Cheeto yesterday, from start to finish.  Dan was helping to hold it because Alex has a habit of throwing things on the floor just to see Mom or Dad bend down to get it, but it's definitely an accomplishment. 

Our family is going to Maine in just under two weeks, to see Grandma and Grandpa Norton, and some other family of mine that will be visiting.  Alex and I will be there for two weeks, and Dan will be there for one.  Other than that, we're just hanging out.  The weather has been oppressive up here, so we stay inside most of the time.  We did have a picnic with a neighbor and her family last week, which was fun.  Oh, well, it's time to rot my brain with some TV.  Have a good night!
