We'll Get There...

All the TV shows are coming back on (well, except Bones)... School has started for all the kids... All the college students are back into a routine... and it's still too dang hot outside!!

I walked out Tuesday afternoon and it looked like it should have been 20-30 degrees cooler out... but no, it was at least 95. I couldn't tell you the exact temperature but it was way too hot for September 20! I'm so ready for coats and scarves... and an excuse to buy clothes (and shoes!) for Auggie! :)

Auggie has started a few different things this past week. We've been working on waving bye-bye, high fives and finding his nose. He kind of waves bye.. not necessarily to the person leaving but he rotates his hand a bit. Basically, since Wednesday morning, he's been doing HIGH FIVES! Yay! It's so cute. But then the nose thing hasn't worked out... Tim has mostly been working on it but we know he'll get there.... just like everything else.

Tuesday night, I gave Auggie a little bit of ice cream. Of course, it was like every other bit of food we've given him- he didn't like it. I got him to open his mouth to it a couple times but it ended with him screaming. He'll get there, too.

Auggie and food is the most frustrating thing lately. He doesn't really like the 'nilla wafers too much any more. He'll suck on them for a little bit but he ends up just tossing them on the floor. Baby food is still a fight. We'll get a bit here and there but that's with lots of head turning. And then regular food is the same way. Auggie will basically beg us to see our plate and play in our food but won't put anything in his mouth. You should see him try to climb in our laps when we're in the living room with some food (Bad habit, we know- eating in the living room, that is).

But I know he'll get there... he has to, right? We met with the dietician Tuesday morning and Auggie had gained a whole pound since she saw him 42 days before. One pound! I'm just glad he gained and didn't lose anything. He weighed 17.11 pounds and was 27.75 inches long. It's looking like we'll gradually start him on Pediasure when he turns 11 months in October. Apparently, he needs to get 50% of his calories from food and the other half from formula in order to start on cow's milk. Pediasure has 30 calories per ounce (compared to the 20ish in soy formula). I'm hoping the Pediasure works well with him.

But anyway... We had a play date at our friend's house this morning (hence the late post). I am so glad we all have kids around the same ages!
