We've had a fairly uneventful day. Jonah let us sleep in until a little after 8:00, and then we fed him, did dressing change, let him take a nap, and then did another feeding. I tried to get him to like eating again by putting him on a strict diet of Chocolate Ice Cream, but as you can see, more ended up on his face than in his mouth.
Then we headed out because Deac is STILL cold, and we wanted to get him a shirt so he wouldn't have to keep wearing his bulky jacket. We did get him a little shirt on clearance for like $3.00, and we also found this -
That's right. My dog has a Snuggie. You wish you were so cool.
While we were out, we bought Jonah a few new toys. I wanted to get him a few new things specifically to reserve for feeding times - partly to make eating something special, that he WANTS to do and partly because I'm trying to entertain him without so much TV. I hate it. I don't mind some TV or even a moderate amount, but between general play time, dressing change, the fact that we can't play outside and feedings, he's on TV overload. Yuck. I would so much rather him be actively DOING something than just observing something. I do love the educational shows and the most recent DVD purchases (ESPECIALLY Curious Buddies), but I want TV to be a last resort.
So that's about it. No big plans for tomorrow. We'll celebrate with The World's Best Daddy around the house and hope to make it to Church. It's always hit or miss for us. Jonah threw up his entire last feeding tonight. I have no idea why. BUT right before bed, he did willingly take two ounces of yogurt and two ounces of oatmeal. I guess he'll eat when he's starving. It makes me want to NOT feed him by the tube to see if he gets hungry enough to eat by mouth. I know it would mean one missed meal, maybe two. I'm not brave enough to risk the calories yet, but I really think it would make a difference. He's never known how to read and satisfy hunger cues. Even if it did make him eat, I know he wouldn't eat enough to get the calories he needs. Even when he's eating "well," he maxes out at about four ounces.
Okay, my eyes are droopy as I type, so I guess that's it for me. Happy Father's Day Eve.
(Please forgive the poor quality of these photos. They're cell phone shots. I ordered a new battery for my camera and am hoping it will get here by Monday or Tuesday. I'm not even sure that's the problem, but I sure hope it is.)
