I swear my kid is already taking after me in the personality department. He is super goofy, which anyone who knows me that when I am in the mood i will do anything for a laugh and some fun. Yesterday, he was still pretty sick and didn't want to eat or drink very much. I basically sat and force fed him with some of his favorite foods but he would not drink out of a bottle or a sippy. I was frustrated so I looked around the kitchen for any ideas. Through my teary eyes I spotted one of the spare syringe from Target pharmacy. I just imagined how much he loved his medicine and figured I could trick him into some fluid intake. Ha...it totally worked. The boy sucked down juice and water for the rest of the day, as long as I gave it to him through the syringe.
Also, to continue his streak of being momma's mini-me goofball. As I was distracting him from his force-feeding with singing and dancing, I realized a pattern. I was singing "heads, shoulders, knees and toes" and every time I said "toes" he would wiggle his tiny footie-pjed toes. He knows what toes are! I have noticed that he is starting to recognize some words but to me this has been the most amazing. I can't believe my little 4 lb. newborn knows what toes are!. I know he is growing up but I am just having a hard time comprehending it.
