Update on Kian
Kian gained 13 ounces from last week! Last week I didn't get a chance to feed him lunch before we had to weigh him and he was down 2 ounces...I wasn't worried as the amount of food he would have had in his tummy would have been a 6 ounce gain. Dr. Bravo thinks he's doing well but we are going to go ahead with testing on March 9th. I'm not exactly sure what they will do - I am guessing a blood draw and I think they said they will do it in the office. Hopefully Kian's favorite nurse, Stacy, can do it (she’s a Packers fan too :)
Our Third Wedding Anniversary (February 23rd)
Unfortunately I have felt kind of sick since Monday (the day we decided to celebrate since our anniversary was on Wednesday). We had dinner brought in from Tahoe Joe’s – a great steak house here in SLO. It wasn’t much of an anniversary but I did have Jamie home with me since he was off for President’s Day on Monday which made that nice :)
Kian started to sit from crawling (which he still mainly does backwards) and pull up to standing all on Monday! Needless to say he didn’t sleep well on Monday night (from all the new stuff he was doing). But he’s back on track with sleeping through the night. He’s also sleeping in his crib! We are so excited to have our room back to ourselves! Now we just need to work on naps once he gets this all down over the next few weeks.
Kian also is starting to crawl forwards but he does a strange little scoot where he puts one leg out to help him get across the room! hehe
Thank God for TiVo! I am able to watch shows that I want to watch when I can watch them. One of those shows is Dr. Phil. I am not sure if anyone has watched it over the last few days or not but it was about a family who thinks their 19-year-old son is a sexual predator. Here is a link to the show: http://www.drphil.com/show/show.jhtml?contentId=3210_polygraph.xml
The family thought that he might be abusing their 4-year-old daughter. He denied doing any such thing at all to her or to anyone else. After taking a polygraph test it was revealed that he did sexually molest his sister and other girls he came into contact – girls not women. He finally admitted he did it (he actually said that he thought he passed the poly - unbelievable) but I question if he really is sorry he did it or sorry he got caught. He has molested several young girls that his family knows of, he’s a pathological liar, looks at porn and calls the 1-900 numbers. I have seen these same signs in some other cases I know of with sexual predators…scary how they have a pattern.
There has been some discussion on one of my May Mommy boards about this show. Some ladies feel bad for the kid. Others were victims of abuse and applaud Dr. Phil’s work. For me, I am glad that this subject was brought out into the open. At least it’s now known what this man did to his sister and now she can be protected. I guess it goes to show that these people can do hurtful and sick things to someone they love and are close to. I am thankful that I have never been in contact with any such person and I pray that Kian will never encounter anyone of this nature either.
