Peanut's Rough Day
This morning started early. I mean really the early. Peanut was off schedule from some travel over the weekend and decided to get up and play in his crib from 4:30-5:30 and then throw everything out of his crib in protest of being ignored. After an early start he was woken up from his nap to go to the doctor. He had his follow up appointment at the doctor this morning to see how his ears are faring. The infections are all cleared, but there was still some fluid. The poor baby has had fluid in his ear for over a month now so I was disappointed to hear this. He took his shot like a man and turned his lip down and glared at the nurse but didn't even cry. The day just kind of got worse for my little Peanut. He is pulling up on everything these days, the refrigerator, the dishwasher, the coffee tables but he hasn't quite figured out how to get his legs into a good position or how to move his feet to help himself out. And the result is a lot of falls and some tears. We figured out that taking his socks off helped a little but that is sort of outweighed by the Little Man factor. This is what we call it when Little Man decides to "help" Peanut stand up, hold on or play with something that inevitable ends in a tangle of arms, legs and a diaper with Peanut on the bottom. He spent a lot of the day in tears or "yelling" his Peanut yell as he does the splits in the kitchen. He choked on turkey soup (we pureed it up, but there was a bone that slipped through) and had a very scary moment. Oh the mess, oh the drama, oh the tears. Tomorrow will be a better day, we get to go see a Big Rig and let Little Man explore the massively big truck with his friends at school and hopefully Peanut will have recovered from his doctor visiting, shot getting, turkey bone choking, split doing day.
