We had 2 great friends, Joanna and Ramona, watch Auggie on Thursday while I got Tim situated at home. Joanna and Ramona along with Jen P and Jen A made some food for us. It has all been so good! Thank you, ladies! We really appreciate it. I don't think our fridge has been that full in a while.
Joanna said Auggie was perfect on Thursday. I'm so glad he was good for them... Now, I just wish that good mood had extended throughout the weekend! I think he knows something different is going on but he has been very needy and will hardly let me do something without him right at my ankles. Sunday, after all our company left (thank goodness), he screamed until bedtime. Monday he was in just about the same mood. I feel bad because we don't know what he needs or what is bothering him but man, can he scream? Most of the time I wanted to scream right there with him. He spent most of Monday morning in his crib because he wouldn't stop crying when I held him or played with him. When he was in his crib, though, he played by himself and calmed down. I know most babies enjoyed their alone time but sometimes I feel like it is too much but he is so much happier alone.
Auggie began to do a few new things over the past week or so:
- "Ma Ma Ma Ma" started last week
- Smacking his lips together
- The sign "milk" more consistently
- Waving "bye bye"
- The sign "all done" a few times
- The sign "more" once or twice
- Using his fist to nod "yes" (the muscles in the neck that control nodding yes are harder to control than the ones used to make the "no" head shaking)
As I sit here and try to figure out what to type, I'm thinking of so many other things I should be doing (dishes, laundry, vacuuming, etc) so I'll leave you with pictures. I'm sure there are things I wanted to type but I've forgotten about them. I haven't had the time or the attention span to edit any more pumpkin patch pictures so these are just from my phone. Sorry if this is another jumbled post... I am so ready for another nap.
