Another Trip To Sick Kid's

Parker had his regular Tuesday trip to Sick Kid's today for his blood work and ADAGEN injection. We were hoping that his blood work would come back today with his IgG level up but that was unfortunately not the case. Parker's IgG level was 1.9, the same as last week. As a result, the little monkey will be getting an IV to top up his IgG on Monday at 9:30am. We really hope that it goes better than the last time they tried. They poked and prodded but they could not find a vein that would cooperate.

Parker has been very good sleeping through the night. The last few nights he has sleot until 5:30am when he would wake up for his morning feed. Today, I got up for the feed and forgot to put him back to bed afterwards. We decided to watch TV and play until he eventually fell asleep watching the backyardigans as he finished off his bottle from earlier in the morning. It was back to bed for him at 7:15 and that is where he stayed until nine.

Yesterday was the end of the two weeks that I had set aside for Parker to learn how to sit unassisted. It took an extra day but I am confident that Parker is capable of sitting all by himself. This afternoon he sat for over ten minutes. I have decided that babies will lose their balance once in a while, but he seems to be good at catching himself. We will definitely reinforce his sitting as we do with his tummy time by practicing with him each day.

The votes for the newest poll are starting to trickle in. Make sure to have your say by voting in the most recent "Parker's Weekly Poll".
