peek a boo

Calder’s new favorite game is Peek-a-Boo, and he likes it best when he controls the pace, choosing when to pull the blanket over his eyes and when to pull it off. Occasionally, over-his-eyes-time doesn't even make it a full second before he wants to see me react to him pulling it off. Sometimes Mom can’t keep up. He likes playing rougher with Dad, who always seems to get laughs with a little tummy action.

nothing to see here.
Calder cannot get enough of standing. Can’t get enough. He breaks into a huge, happy-man smile and starts slapping his feet all over the place while you keep him balanced. As soon as he picks up some coordination, he is going to be cruising our couch like nobody’s business.
don't make me eat CARROTS!!
He is still averaging about two tube-feeds a day (sometimes one, sometimes three.) He never wants to eat right before bedtime at night, so we are always tubing him them. When the tube goes away someday, his propensity to skip second dinner could get interesting, and means we’ll probably need to change our regimen. Based on experience, I doubt our boy would sleep well on an empty stomach. The tube has been a boon and a burden, and I’m sure I’ll feel the same way when it’s gone.

Thankfully, we are finally almost officially out of isolation. Being out doesn’t mean it’s okay for him to get sick, that his lungs and immune system are magically better. What it means is that because of the warmer weather, the risk of getting sick has gone down. We’ll see what the docs say and hope Calder gets to do a little more hanging out.

    1. I know, it makes me laugh too. :) The movie is a nice little mid-day pick-me-up!
