Kid Updates

Update on Gavin: he continues to have good and bad behavior days. I’m really hoping in a more structured school environment he will do better. He’s also barely eating anything, we end up having to offer to feed him, which is so annoying, but at least he eats that way. I’m not sure what the deal is. It will be interesting to see how much he weighs at his 5 yr check up compared to his 4 yr check up. Right now I am typing this and watching him at Little Ninjas. He’s pretty uncoordinated! Hopefully it will get better, this is only his second time. I think it’s hard for him to mimic the movements, he doesn’t have enough awareness of his body to just do that. He’s also just so squirrelly! It’s kind of annoying that no one is taking the time to show him how to do these. Last week he didn’t want me to stay and watch, and now I think it’s a good thing because he keeps trying to talk to me. I’m trying to pay attention to what they are doing so that I can help him at home. This might be really good for his self discipline and control. He just got in trouble for swinging his arms around when they were supposed to be at his side. Like I said, squirrelly. And these teachers are kind of mean. = (

Update on Sam: He can definitely roll on to his tummy! He likes to lay on the floor and roll around, but he gets pretty frustrated after a while when he can’t go anywhere. He’s doing a good job trying to get his knees under him but right now he just shoots his legs in under him and shoots them out really quickly and gets mad that it gets him no where. He’s up to eating sweet potatoes, pears, apples, and bananas. I keep pulling out the jar of peas and just can’t bring myself to make him eat it! He's been pretty cranky for him lately, and sometimes isn't eating well at school. I just read that babies can build up a tolerance to Zantac, so considering asking the doc for a different prescription at his 6 month visit. The reflux is definitely still bothering him. He's also scheduled for a head ultrasound mid-August that I try to keep forgetting about.

I hate mean people! I have always wished I had the personality to say something to those you tick me off. Hopefully it get's better for Gavin, it would be great if it turned into something he really enjoyed and helped him out : )

Max loved/loves peas! Strike that, he loves all green vegetables! Give 'em a chance Mom! I can't believe Sam is so close to being mobile. Man, time flies; how can he be almost 6 months old already!?!

Okay, so I really need to read my comments before I post them! That should be "to those that tick me off." Not you!
