Man, how do all the blogging moms out there do it? Everyday I think of something that I just MUST blog about, but it never reaches my blog! I have started a notebook where I jot down quotes, web addresses, articles, and ideas that I want to someday blog about....someday.
Quick update on Sylas: Had a speech eval last week. His therapist is passionate/informative/bright and I think she will be a great fit for Sylas (and me :)). She will be working on Sylas with feeding issues as well as early speech development. I asked about ideas to decrease the amount of cereal Sylas pushes out of his mouth during feeding. She suggested using the spoon to push down gently on his tongue, and then tip the spoon to the side and let the cereal fall off into the side of his mouth. This does seem to be working better, however, yesterday he started "sucking" on the cereal once it was in his mouth. It was like he was nursing but without the breast! I am guessing that this probably is not an effective way to eat cereal, so I am ready with yet another question for the therapist.
Cardiologist: We trekked over to the other side of the island for a visit with the cardiologist who comes to our island only once every 4 months. I was lucky enough to secure a spot for Sylas, and I guess I was expecting Sylas would have an echocardiogram or something time consuming. The doctor came in and asked how Sylas was doing, then proceeded to listen to his heart and lungs, said that everything sounded good, and that was that in less than 10 minutes! We need to follow up in 6 months.
