We had another good day today.
Matt's mom listened out for Jonah while he napped, so that Dr. Heather and I could have a nice lunch at The Olive Garden. (I should really not be allowed to watch food commercials... I'm very impressionable.) It was so great to see her and spend some real time with her. I love that lady.
Jonah got around 930 calories today (still happy with that) - three bottles (part by mouth, part by tube) and one meal by tube. He did eat an ounce of Yo Baby Peach Yogurt by mouth, and his protein supplement gets him an extra 36 calories a day. I feel REALLY good about giving him real food but certainly don't want him to become tube dependent. He's definitely eating less formula by mouth than he was before surgery, but hopefully that will just help us on our way to solids??? I don't know. I'm trying to make myself feel better. The frustration with Jonah is that he definitely has the ability to eat orally, and I don't think it hurts him most of the time. He just won't. I don't know. We have our rescheduled visit with Kid's Eat on June 7th. I'm very interested to see what they have to say.
No real crawling today. Mostly just rocking and teasing and whining in disgust. Sorry, no video.
Jonah earned himself a SECOND bumper pad today to go above his other one. I hated to have to add it, because now he's kind of in a little crib prison, but apparently, his new favorite pastime is shoving his feet (with unbandaged toes, mind you) through his crib bars... over and over and over again. I'm obviously worried about him blistering his toes and feet, and it's also waking him up. So little prison crib baby he shall be.
Tomorrow I get therapized (HOORAY!), and we have our appointment with the nutritionist. I'm excited to tell her about our blended diet endeavors (and my new three tab Excel spreadsheet... you know you like it), and get her input. I think she'll be able to help me out with the proportions of things - fats, proteins, carbs etc.
And here's a cute one from last week of Jonah playing in the floor in my room.
This is one of my favorite outfits. But he looks so grown up! His legs are looking so long these days. But he's still BABY Jonut. I guess it'll always be that way... even when he's thirty with kids of his own.
