(Maggey is under water with work right now so… Â um… “Hi!” Â This is the result of someone trying to win hubby/daddy points!)
Tess had her first development checkup yesterday and she did AWESOME! Â It was so great to watch a new doctor, new PT, and two new nurses have their world view changed. Â First, the fact that Tess was ok was something that took them a good 5 minites of asking the same questions over and over until they just gave in to the fact that things are not always tragic.
N: “So when has she been sick since being released?” …
D: “She hasn’t.”
N: “No no really.”
D: (silence and smiles).
N: “So she is adopted; are you going to tell her about her birth mother?”
D: “Birth parents. Â Plural. They are amazing and she will know everything as soon as English/French makes any sense”
N: “That is a noble thing to do”
D: “Thank you but, it is actually the right thing for everyone.”
Yeah, we had a great time. Â Tess is doing fabulously, but we didn’t realize that she needs to be doing tummy time for half the time that she is awake. Â HALF!?! That is a lot of screaming, but on the up side, they gave us a bunch of homework on different ways to do tummy time that will trick her into thinking that she isn’t actually doing it. Â So, let the games begin I suppose!
My parents are coming to visit, so the Moplinger and Poplinger will finally get some Tess time. Â It is going to be AWESOME!
(Can you capitalize ‘awesome’ twice in one post)Â And now for some cute pictures!
