Follow-up Doctor Visit

Colin had a follow-up visit with the doctor today to "remove" the special dressing that he put on during surgery. He was supposed to use dressing that was basically guaze, but he was concerned that with Colin's age and size, the dressing wouldn't stay on long enough. Last minute, he decided to use this special stuff that resembles "second skin". When the doctor took a look today, he said the dressing had already fallen off and we didn't even notice. He was happy with Colin's progress because he said there was no swelling or bleeding and it looked as good as it could look two days post-surgery.


I think Colin is just about back to his normal self again, despite the fact that his eye teeth on the bottom are starting to get ready to poke through. This poor guy can't catch a break! I'm guessing that's why we are essentially hitting a plateau with Colin's achievement of skills. I can't say I don't blame the kid, but I liken the feeling of the plateau to coming off of a really great vacation. On these vacations, you have an unbelievable time and you don't want to see it end. When you get home, you feel kind of blah, like you are missing out on something. It's like this for a short period of time until things start to pick up again like a great day here, great day there, etc. I think we are in that blah period, but I'm sure things will start to pick up again soon. Our summer vacation is right around the corner. I'm not going to lie though, I can't wait to see Colin walk into my arms all by himself...

Since the doctor gave the ok to take a bath today, Colin did not waste any time. Do you think he felt like he was missing out on something? When I put him in the tub I thought I could almost here him sighing "ahhhh".






















My favorite part of bath time tonight you ask? When Colin stuck the "O" on the thing for the bath tub drain and cheered and cheered himself on. I had turned around to get his towel and quickly looked to see why he was cheering. HYSTERICAL.




Doesn't he just look so proud of himself?
