Well, I guess it was inevitable, but with Kaitlyn's immense laundry production, our washing machine broke. Brian took 3 loads of Kaitlyn's clothes to work with him, (as if we don't keep up on it every day, we would have a naked baby with no burp rags).
Now of course, because Brian is a fireman, taking baby clothes to "work" is a funny sight. Right after he put a load in when he got to the firehouse, he was called out on about 3 calls, so when he returned, there were a lot of questions as to who owned the large load of pink onsies and footsie pj's in the laundry.
I can just picture it - it makes me giggle, all those big fireman giving Brian a hard time for his pink load of laundry!!!
We have just located a new washing machine and are back in vomit clean up business.
And, yes, her vomits have continued even though I haven't made many comments on that fact. Today/tonight I've changed her PJ's 4 times! The last time was when the dreaded medicine port opened (for all those fellow g-tube mom who know what I'm talking about) and fed her bed for over 2 ounces of milk before she woke up, soaking and having her stomach completely emptied. now, 2 hours later, she's still awake (it's almost 11pm) , and I just changed her pjs' again after a huge vomit. Ugh.
But on the good news front, she has continued to pleasure us with an occasional smile now and then (still not directed at us), but it is so amazing to see her face light up . It makes my heart sing.
I think that one of the alternative practicioners that I've been taking her to (an Osteopath who specializes in Chranio Sacral Therapy) has a lot to do with her recent positive development. I can honestly say that in the last 3 weeks, we have seen a noticeable difference in her behavior, her ability to interact with the world, and now her smiling. She's rolling all over the place, in all directions. 3 weeks ago she was only rolling from stomach to back, and rarely ever back to stomach. Now she's a champ at rolling both ways. Even if I put her head facing one direction, she'll rapidly move (via rolling) and end up facing another direction.
She's so much better at handling objects, she can even finger-pinch small things (like a cheerio) but forget eating it. It's so wonderful to see her thriving all of a sudden.
