Today this household waves a not so sad farewell to a broken washing machine. Its replacement is a washer/dryer combo machine. It is smaller, but since we don’t have a cat to barf on our comforter every other week (anymore) we shouldn’t need to use a larger one more than a few times a year.
Don’t get me wrong, I appreciate cats and their wonderful talent (and at times eagerness) to seek out and eliminate vermin. I do not appreciate their need to find the most difficult to clean thing in the room to urp up their excess fur. Hopefully the kid doesn’t feel the need to fill that blessed void. It’s been very nice to have a baby who belches instead of burping up. She will have the occasional burp with friends, but not more than once or twice a day. It was actually a bit entertaining in church yesterday when I sat her up after a mid morning snack and she automatically let out a big burp that was heard by the rows around us. There were more than one pair of shoulders shaking in silent laughter.
Baby Kathleen is growing like a weed and seems to come up with a new consonant or combination of letters every other day. And we can’t tell if she’s going to be an early teether or if she just likes chewing on everything she can get her little hands on.
I’m not sure if I reported this in a previous post, but she was seen by her cardiologist a few weeks ago and he says she won’t need another heart surgery. It’s possible she may choose to have one for her personal comfort, but it shouldn’t be medically necessary. I am still over the moon about that. :)
It feels good to be successful NICU Graduates, but there are times when I wonder how all those families I met are doing. I am Facebook friends with a few of them, and things are going well for them. I just hope it’s the same with all the rest.
OK, enough chatter and idle speculation.
It’s time for Mirth and Music Monday!
