I have to apologize, the wishlist will be a week late this month but it's going to include a whole list of fun and cute Easter activities! There will be some adorable crafts for all ages of little ones to do and some special desserts to serve at your family's Easter gathering. So I'm sorry I didn't get it together this week, but I promise it'll be up first thing next Wednesday!
Well, I suppose the most important thing that happened this week is that Bailey had a CT scan and x-rays at the hospital on Saturday and now we're absolutely positive that her shunt is working properly. She woke up at 4:00 in the morning sick as a dog, again. This time I couldn't ignore it or brush it off as some stomach bug so I had to drag her to the hospital to get it checked out. Luckily it turned out to be a minor infection (unrelated to the shunt) and all she needed was some antibiotics, but they had to do the scans to be sure.
She refused to sit still for the scans so they had to sedate her which was about the funniest thing I've ever seen! They gave her some Versed and told us to wait about half an hour for it to kick in. Ten minutes later she had slumped over on Aaron's lap and was giggling like a maniac. We got some cute video of her acting all loopy so we can show her when she grows up. She was laughing at everything and when they got her back in her bed she would knock on her wall and then say, "Who is it?" Aaron and I laughed until we couldn't breathe!
Bailey finally decided yesterday that she's willing to begin potty training. I seriously thought it would never happen. I know every kid does things in his or her own time, but she's 3 years and 3 months old and was rapidly approaching outgrowing the largest size diapers at Target. I didn't want to pressure her so I just made the potty available whenever she decided she wanted to go and she had tried a few times but wasn't willing to try it exclusively until now.
She seems to be doing well, just one accident yesterday. She likes her little underpants. They have Tinkerbell on them. I think we're getting the most success from the promise of treats if she goes. I have no idea how she'll do when we wean her off the treats, but for now she keeps trying to go every hour or so in hopes that she'll get a mini Oreo or a handful of jellybeans. The same thing seems to be working for her medicine. She'll take it no problem as long as I have a Hershey Kiss waiting for her when she swallows.
And now, I know it sounds crazy, but I'm really exhausted so I'm gonna cut to the menu and get some rest.
