Is it terrible that my 14 month old has never worn shoes? Seriously. She has several pairs and I have let her "play" in them or taken pictures of her in them, but I have never made her wear them out anywhere. I mean she came home in the winter and was teeny tiny and I didn't think she needed shoes. Then it was summer and I thought it was too hot for shoes. Now, it's November and I know she needs shoes, but she won't keep them on her feet. I know, totally my fault.
During PT for the past few weeks we have been working on walking. Last week as we were practicing our PT said, "Could you go get MK's shoes? I think they would help." I looked at her and then looked down in embarrassment. I mumbled, "Ummm, she doesn't have shoes." Anyway, after that particular meeting I decided it was a good time to get MK some shoes. Only one slight problem. MK wears a size one and finding actual shoes with good soles in a size 1 has been almost impossible. I have looked practically everywhere and even searched online. I was beginning to give up hope, but then it happened. I found a pair today! They are size one, have firm, good soles and are also kind of cute. What more could you ask for?
Changes will be coming soon. Changes to the blog that is. My goal is to have everything in order by this Sunday, which happens to be the beginning of November. The March of Dimes has named November as Prematurity Awareness Month and I want to help increase awareness. The blog will be purple and each day of November I will give one fact about prematurity. The fact may pertain to prematurity in general or it may be centered around Morgan Kate. Either way, I hope you will check in!
We have been giving Morgan Kate rice milk since last Thursday. So far, so good. She still has occasional hiccups, but they aren't nearly as bad as before. The wet burps have continued as well, but she is not throwing up at all. Yahoo!
Oh, and sorry if I disappointed, but there was no sound for last night's video. Kaky, nor MK, were saying anything. I guess I didn't do a good job of explaining. Matter of fact, I must have done a terrible job because only one person commented. Kaky had a straw in her mouth and was blowing air into MK's face. MK would grab and pull for the straw and Kaky would pull it away. I thought it was hilarious, but maybe it was one of those "you had to be there" moments. Also, I guess the funny part wasn't really what Kaky was doing. I just thought it was funny that my mom, the one who had taught me such good table manners and table behavior, would be doing that with her grandchild. :)
