Really Mom? Is this totally necessary? You know how I hate change!!
Well this is what I think of your idea! To my amusement though, after emptying the bowl of chips onto the floor and mushing them around on the carpet a bit...he actually tried to pick them up and put them back into the bowl again (something I've been trying to get him to do with his shapes bucket for ages).
Sam is still keen to tolerate some time in the crawl-position, although usually collapses after trying to move more than one or two hands forward. But he'll stay in this position for ages, with a little rocking thrown in every now and again.
This (to our posture's dismay) is still his favourite thing to do at the moment. And of course it makes so many activities more accessible, like unpacking cupboards, chasing the cat, kicking the ball (which he's remarkably good at).
The two-headed "monster" which came by on Wednesday evening to terrorise our family! No, I do not know what inspired this idea, nor do I want to know :-)
For the news that we (thankfully) did not catch on camera...you'll understand why soon. On Sunday morning we decided to go out for an early breakfast and took Sam's bottle along to at least keep him occupied for the first five minutes of the meal. Sam promptly finished his bottle and immediately started with his insistent jumping. Ordinarily we dissuade from jumping straight after a bottle, but what Sam wants to do...Sam does. So the jumping continued and eventually our food came. I gave Sam a tiny bit of my flapjack to try and distract him from the jumping...but alas full bottle + reflux + jumping + gag reflex = EPIC ERUPTION! Sam's entire bottle came spewing out all of myself, Sam and Mugg & Bean's floor. And we couldn't just get up and leave because our order had only just just arrived. So they politely brought me a bucket of water with a rag to try and clean what I could of the partially-digested nestargel formula off my dress and moved us to another table. It just had to happen though - I am surprised it took this long.
Sam saw a urologist on Wednesday who is debating with the neurosurgeon whether to do a something-something urethrogram prior to Sam's surgery (tentatively scheduled for the first week of December). We are seeing Prof F on the 22 November again to finalise everything.
