We had a busy day today...therapy this morning then storytime at 3:30, which went much better than morning storytime, even the instructor commented ;)I planned to go to the gym with J after storytime, but I started to feel not so great towards the end of storytime, so we came home instead. Every day J grabs his Nemo DVD case and runs through the house screaming "Bubbooooooz Bubbooooooz!!" I guess that's imitating the crazy fish in the dentist office who is addicted to the bubbles in the tank..you know "Bubbles Bubbles Bubbles...MY BUBBLES!!!" LOL! Well he demands to watch that DVD everyday (Sorry ABCs!!). So when we got home he asked to watch his movie so I put it on in his room and he sat down waiting for it to begin. I grabbed his pillow and sprawled out on his floor to watch with him. He looked at me and scooted back to get closer and put his arm on me and smiled as his movie started. He kept looking at me and smiling and then eventually climbed on my chest and sat on me to watch his movie. Then he gave me a big hug and a kiss. I lay there and thought about how surreal this mommy thing still is to me. 2 yrs ago I was still asking God if this would ever happen. Will I be a mom before I leave this Earth? I had no idea and was so very anxious to know. Now I've been a mommy for almost 2 yrs now and still find times when I can't believe that he is mine. I can't believe that I have someone to care for, spoil, bathe, tell bedtime stories, tuck in at night, and watch cartoons with. Someone who calls me Mommy...WOW. I am so blessed :)
His SLP came over this morning for his weekly speech therapy and I told her about his terrible behavior during mealtimes. He is now only eating bread and fries and anything sweet. I tried feeding him mashed potatoes last night and it was an awful experience that included screaming, kicking, crying, and then ended with vomit :( I don't want him to have to go through that anymore so I need the therapists to help us. She is going to see about getting some tips and exercises from the feeding clinic b/c she believes it may be full and the sessions take place in the clinic which is about 30 minutes away from our house. I told her if there is a slot I will drive no matter the distance b/c we need the help. She will be back on Wednesday for another therapy session and hopefully some good news for us on the eating front. Well I'm going to fix me some baked potatoe soup and hop in bed.
