8 months corrected/12 months actual
“Are you busy this afternoon?” I asked her.
If only she would have known. I warned her. I told her it was going to be work. Like any good mother though, she readily agreed to come over and help me take Ty’s first year photos. By the end of the day we were worn out! That little monkey is at the IMPOSSIBLE stage for pictures. I had to give up on the glasses entirely. I managed to get one cute one with glasses but that was it. Mom was standing next to him trying to keep his hands off them but to no avail.
As my studio was set up in the garage, mom had to stand right by the table to keep Ty from crawling off. NOT an easy endeavor. Finally, in frustration I suggested we take him to the park and let him crawl on a large blanket. Containing him was not working. (Tanner had him in a choke hold in a few pictures just trying to keep him in one spot:). The park had it’s problems too. My little flipper bug would not keep still for one second. I’d set up a shot and he’d move. Over and over until I was about to loose my mind. At the end of the day, I was pretty happy with several pictures though. I posted some of these pictures in the January Album. See if mom volunteers to help me with this again. I doubt it.
Everwhere All the Time
Now he has discovered my bookshelf too! Can’t leave this little man alone for a second before he finds something new and interesting. The TV continues to be a problem too. I called Daniel this week and described the constant battle over the tv screen. (I knew he would appreciate this conversation). Daniel’s suggestion? His closing words were “Doni, go look up www.DrPhil.com”. LOL!
Ty is very very busy and keeps Tanner and I on our toes but I love his curious nature. Wonderful thing.
I know it is early for Ty to talk at 8 months corrected but he is such a little mima bird that he is seeming to say at least “Hi”, “Mamma”, “Dada”, and “Tata” (Tanner). It could all be coincidence but he uses them directed often enough that I think he may really be getting it. He also shakes his head no when he doesn’t want something (or doesn’t want to do something). I feel pretty certain that he is going to be ahead with his communicative abilities. This is one thing that I did ask the Lord for. I prayed and prayed that my baby would be able to communciate with me. God answered my prayer and gave me a super social baby. I LOVE it!!
I fear we are already about to give up. We have tried this week but our tries never get far because he WON’T wear them. The ONLY chance we have is to hold his arms down which only makes him furious. Distraction doesn’t work. There is no toy more interesting than the new found toy on his face. Straps won’t work. He would get them right off and than I would only add a choking hazard to my list of concerns. I truly don’t know what to do about this. He even scratched them the second day after we bought them. I think he scraped his two teeth across them the second he took them off.
Ty has had at least 4 episodes this week of waking up gasping for air. Is he refluxing? Having apnea? Apnea because of reflux? It hasn’t happened at night. Only during naptime while sitting in the swing. Is it possible he is having a nightmare and wakes up startled and gasping for air? My best guess would be reflux induced apnea but why only during the day?
He is fast fast fast and can get around the house! Nothing is safe:)!
Ty’s RSV shot did arrive hassle free and on time today! Yeah!!!! Ty and Tanner seem to be over their colds now and doing good! A couple more months to go!
