I also got a really cool car to drive around outside while the big kids ride their bikes. Mommy said something about it making me work on my core but I'm not quite sure what she's babbling about. I just think I look good driving it :-)
My big brothers picked out clothes for me. They thought I needed Minnie shirts for our trip to Disney this summer. I liked them because they are sparkly. My favorite gift was the wrapping paper. I could have played with that all day but big brother Ian kept taking it away from me. He said he was afraid I was going to eat it. I just liked the sound it makes.
My birthday abruptly came to an end when my mommy woke me up at 5 a.m. I like to get up early but my earliest is about 7! Then she said I had to eat breakfast. Really, mom! I wanted to go back to sleep. I ate all of my cereal and prunes and then snuggled with mommy on the couch. At 7 she woke me up again and told me I had to drink my milk. I never did understand why she made me get up and tell me I HAD to eat until later.... I think I saw mommy eating lunch but she wouldn't share. No matter how long and hard I screamed and yelled at her. She wouldn't get me more food. She gave me some strange orange stuff. It was okay. I drank it because she wouldn't give me anything else.
Later we drove to Children's. The nurses made me strip down to my diaper. I really wanted to leave my birthday shirt on but they said I couldn't. The nurse then squirted some yucky stuff in my mouth and I started to get really sleepy. I don't remember anything after that until mommy woke me up. I kept trying to go back to sleep but no one would let me. Mommy said while I was sleeping they checked my heart. The cardiologist said it looks great. The patch is doing its job. She also said we need to watch the pressure on my left side of the heart but the cardiologist isn't concerned just yet. The audiologist also ran tests while I was sleeping. She told mommy that I can hear perfectly. I could have told her that. I just choose to ignore everyone once in awhile. I like to be by myself sometimes. Those brothers of mine are quite loud! I was so very sleepy the rest of the day but Tuesday I was my old self again.
Well....that was until Mom told me I had to go to the pediatrician and I needed shots. I thought this was my birthday week....yucky medicine that makes me sleep and shots...then they took blood from my big toe....not the best birthday presents if you ask me! The nurse didn't think I could do a bunch of stuff but mommy corrected her. Mommy seemed a little miffed at the nurse but quite pleased with herself when she corrected her. I even added to it by 4 point crawling on the exam table in front of the nurse. I guess that will show her not to under estimate what I can do. My mommy was really proud of me then! Her and my big brother started cheering. Wonder what the big deal was? The doctor said I'm growing well (I weigh 18 lbs 4 oz, but the hospital said 18 lbs 8 oz the day before) and everything else checked out. Mommy seemed very happy when we left.
I have more family coming this weekend. I bet that means more presents and lots of attention! I'm not sure what the big deal is about turning 1 but everybody seemed excited. I saw mommy cry a few times and looked at me kind of funny but she always followed it by a big hug and kiss so I guess everything is okay!
It's time for my nap so I will talk to everyone soon!
