The medicine has been stopped. So has the nig.ht te.rrors and restless nights. I placed this child who resembled my MT to bed tonight when I got home from work and he went in the crib and went to sleep. No fussy no muss ...
MT seems to be back to normal .. Teething like a banshee. (our norm) Runny nose and drool ..It's hard to tell the difference really. I am just so thankful that we are sleeping again. However long it lasts
Sippy Cup - *making sure his lil ears cannot hear me type this 3 rooms away sleeping so I do not jinx this. He purposely drank water out of his sippy cup 4 times today. (4 sips 2 different times) 2 times on our way home after the park playgroup and 2 times while eating lunch. I almost fell OVER. I consider this progress. Hoping this repeats tomorrow and here after so I can stop self inducing fear of dehydration since we live in a warm (read sometimes hot and muggy) climate.
- I walked in the door after work tonight and I swear to you that my child said "Hi" and waved to me.. My husband witnessed this it to. I was floored. I wonder if he will do it again ..
- He has been waving "bye bye" for weeks now. Just not when prompted .. on his terms (as most everything is lately)
- He can clap if he wants to. But only if HE wants to.
My parents have a wooden swing on their porch. MT adores being outside on their porch and swinging. He has always had to sit in someones lap until we discovered a new use for this. We strapped the back/bottom straps to the swing and buckled him in .. oh My Word .. The squeals! He loves it.
