It all started last Thursday when Mommy got a call from daycare. That morning I fell and hit the edge of a chair because I didn’t listen when Miss Kelly (daycare provider) told me to sit on my behind! The fall resulted in a cut above my right eye and a trip to Urgent Care! When Miss Kelly talked to Mommy, she recommended that a doctor take a look at my cut as she thought it may need some sutures or glue to help with the bleeding. After waiting at Urgent Care (for at least 20-30 minutes to see a doctor – ugh!), the verdict was that the cut was shallow enough to heal on its own and that a little Vaseline and band-aid would go a long ways! Mommy was prepared though, as she had milk, snacks, and movies to entertain me while we waited… of course, Emma got hungry during that time and also filled her pants! Thanks, Mommy – we love you!
Last weekend Grandma & Grandpa Heppner, Uncle Chad, Aunt Ang, and my cousins also came to visit! Even though their stay was short (Uncle Chad, Aunt Ang, and my cousins could only stay for less than 24 hours!), we still managed to visit the zoo (which was having a special Halloween party) and have a little birthday celebration for Mommy and I, as well as some gifts for Emma. Thank you for all the wonderful presents, that was so thoughtful!
It’s hard to believe that I’m five weeks old already! At my last check-up, I was in the 90th percentile for head circumference and length, and in the 70th percentile for weight! When I go back to see my doctor, right before Thanksgiving for my 2 month appointment, I bet I’ll be topping the charts because Mommy says I’m growing like a weed!
I’m also seeing a UW Pediatrics Dermatologist for the hemangioma that has developed on my forehead. Please continue to pray that my “angel kiss” responds to treatment and recedes quickly. In the meantime, I guess I’ll just wear headwraps and hats! P.S. Thank you Aunt Dawn and Roe for my new owl hat… I love how soft it is and am ready for winter (not that I want winter to be here)!
