Will on Wheels

Today I stopped by a garage sale with Will. As we walked up the driveway, sitting at the end was a Cozy Coupe Fisher Price car. Will practically leaped from my arms to the pavement. He climbed immediately into the car and then refused to get out, even after I pushed him around in it a little bit. I had to roll him over to the rest of the garage sale so that I could check out the other items. When I was finished looking, I tried to get him out again, failing to do anything except elicit screeching. After some negotiating, the lady took my offer of $20, and I pushed Will (still in the car, of course) down the driveway and to the street where we were parked. When I pulled him out to put him in his carseat, he was flailing and screeching and throwing the nearest thing to a tantrum I've yet seen from him. We got the coupe loaded up in the front seat and brought it home. Will was past due for a nap when we got home, but he spent an hour opening and closing the door and going in and out of the car over and over (and over) again. He loves his first set of wheels!

Words, Words, Words

Words Will said in the 14 months before tubes:
  • Mama
  • Dada
  • bye (ba-ba)
  • al-lo (hello)
Words Will has said in the week and a half since he got his tubes in:
  • up
  • hot
  • no
  • all done
  • sissssa
  • Ella
  • bath
  • yuck (accompanied by scrunched up nose)
  • hey
  • cat (supposedly, I haven't heard it yet)
Think his hearing might have improved??

And the ENT Recommends . . . .

Tubes. Not a big surprise given that Will has spent about half of the last 6 months with an ear infection and on antibiotics. We didn't get a for-sure date due to insurance questions, but the surgery will probably be either the June 14 or 20, both are Mondays. The doctor said the procedure will only take 3 or 4 minutes, though he will probably be out for longer. He will have to be put under complete anesthesia, which is kind of scary. But we also feel that we are putting him at risk with having to keep him on antibiotics constantly as well, so . . . I'll update when we get a date for certain.
