Another ear infection...

I took Sophie to the pediatrician this morning. She has another ear infection. She just cannot catch a break! This will be her fourth round of antibiotics within the last two months.

She still has a pink spot on her head from her band. I spoke with Cranial Tech and I have been putting hydrocortisone cream on the spot to reduce the redness. I also had to buy moleskin to put in the inside of her band to try to reduce the friction so that she could start wearing her band again. Hopefully, this will work.

Erin, Colin, Haley and I went to Time For Dinner tonight. I love that place. It really feels like I am making a home cooked meal without bringing the mess and time into my own kitchen. It is also so much healthier than eating out all of the time. Not to mention, Haley has so much fun and really gets involved with meal planning. Thank you Uncle Jason and Aunt Colette for watching Sophie. It sounds like she had a great time.

Sophie also did really well in her developmental therapy session this morning. She started using her pointer finger to push buttons. That is a great foundation for her future communication skills. Sophie also did a lot of pulling to a stand today. I think she has that skill mastered now. I have been doing a lot of research on her low tone lately. It seems that certain supplements can improve her tone. Actually, I have been doing a lot of research lately on supplements in general. I am in the process of setting up an appointment with a nutritionist that knows a lot about using supplements for children that have developmental delays.

You better make sure mashed potatoes are part of that special diet. If not I am going to give her some contraband from time to time.
