Posted by Mom to Will & Cate on Thursday, January 31, 2008
Cate went to the doctor today. It was good news and bad news. Good news first - she gained a pound!!! I couldn't believe it. I mean, she only gained 3 ounces over the last 3 months, and then she gains a pound in 3 weeks. Hooray!!! Bad news - she has her third ear infection in 3 months. It looks like she may be on her way to getting tubes. I hope not; I hope she won't have any more infections. But, if she has to get them, she has to. I just hate the thought of my baby being put under anesthesia. Pray that her ear will heal and that she won't get any more ear infections.
Will is doing great! Ever since his surgery, he has hardly spit up at all. He hasn't spit up in probably 2 or 3 weeks now. The only time he spit up after the surgery is when he still had some swelling and tried to eat something too big. He's pretty much back to his old self, which I love. He is really trying to learn some words. His most recent advance in his speech is the word "ouce." In our language, this means ice cream. The reason he says "ouce" is because I call it ouce cream (like Michelle Tanner on Full House!). I ask him, "do you want pudding or ouce cream?" and he says, "ouce!" He is running, and jumping, and in constant motion. Continue to lift him up as well.
As always, more updates to come.
