We made it to church today, and I took Jonah to the nursery again. I stayed with him, but he did great. I take him to the six to twelve month nursery thinking the pace is probably better for him. :) I loved letting him spend time with other kids close to his age. He loved it!
AND he wore shoes for the first time. Well, I did put shoes on him that day it snowed, but they weren't anywhere near his size, and they kept falling off. These were actually a size too big and stayed on his feet. They were Pedipeds, which had been recommended to me by several EB moms. His toes don't look any worse. We'll have to check his ankles and heels tomorrow. I'm thinking they'll be okay though. He has a lot of padding there. We'll see.
Jonah crawled today! (Or so Matt says.) Of course he waited until I wasn't here to show his skills. Matt said he did a sequence of hand, hand, knee, knee a couple different times. I'm hoping to get it on video tomorrow. He's going to be mobile before long. Katie said, "I got to be honest, Patrice. Mobility is the devil." I believe her. Jonah, not even crawling, somehow gets to the DVD player and satellite thingy. I can't even imagine what's it's going to be like when he is actually on the move.
I gave Jonah some real food through his tube today. It was some crazy concoction of chicken and gravy baby food, avocado, Yo Baby yogurt, Coconut Milk, Apple juice, and Duocal. Sounds tasty, huh? He handled it fine, and it gave him about 200 calories in just four ounces. High calorie, Low volume. Good stuff. He only threw up a couple ounces today, and that was with the night time bottle, not using the tube. And even without counting those two ounces, he got 960 calories today. I was pretty pumped about that.
Anyway, sorry this isn't very exciting. Life's just kind of cruising along these days. They're all about the same, give or take a little vomit. He's amazing, as always. Today was a good day.
