Kayla has a cardiology appointment every 6 months. She had one today and did great even though we were there for 3 hours. That's a long time trying to entertain a toddler at a doctor's office, so I took lots of pictures.
They actually have quite a bit of stuff to keep the kids entertained in the waiting room.
Look at that awesome drawing that Kayla did!! Haha. Just kidding. That drawing was there from someone else. All Kayla can do now is dots and random scribbling.
Having lunch. Snack food... I was hoping we wouldn't be there long and we wouldn't have to eat there. I don't know why I think such things... We're almost always there for hours.
Picture of her getting her pulse ox. It was in the low 80s. She was 78.2cm long...which is almost 31 inches. I wasn't able to remember what she weighed or what her blood pressure was.
Getting an EKG. I've never seen her get one at this clinic before. The last time she got one was when she had surgery.
Staring out the window. We got some rain today. Kayla pronounces it 'bain'
Dancing to some music that I played on my iPhone. :)
Playing with some finger puppets.
She was only amused with the iPhone for a little bit. I think her brother not being there asking to play makes it less interesting.
She got a gown for her echo...I put it on backwards. She did really well. The last time she had one, she was tired and cried a lot. I had to have help holding her down. This time she was happy and watched some Dora on the TV.
Tired because she missed out on her usual nap time. Unfortunately, I had to wake her up and she didn't want to take nap again.
It's been a while since I did an update on how Kayla is doing. She tires easier than a normal kid, but other that that she is doing great. Her skin color is normal and she hasn't gotten sick or any ear infections this summer. She is growing and has been bumped to half a baby aspirin instead of a 1/4th. I give it to her every morning. She thinks it's a vitamin because we give it to her the same time as David gets a vitamin. Otherwise, David would want to have some aspirin or Kayla would want to have David's vitamin.
Her language skills aren't as great as David's were at the same age. She isn't able to pronounce things well, but she definitely understands a lot. She knows her body parts and animal sounds. She's can eat with a fork and spoon. She can drink from a glass, but still spills sometimes. She eats well and will try just about anything.
She is wearing 12-18 month clothes, size 5 shoes, size 4 diapers. I think we might start trying to potty train soon. Lately, she keeps sticking her hand in her diaper when she poops. When she is home, she always poops at nap time. I think it's her way of getting out of having to take a longer nap.
Here's Kayla's attempt at singing her ABC's.
Everyone who sees Kayla says she is so sweet. She is always smiling and in a good mood. She loves to hug on people and loves attention.
