Pictures of My Room

Mommy and Daddy made a very nice room for me. Mommy put stickers up on the wall to make it look comfy, and its my favorite because all of my toys are there!
This is the book corner and two of my little people toys.
Random Toys, and my new Blues Clues Tunnel and Ball Pit!
I'm just doing some clean up - vaccuming. See my bed?
All my balls go in Blue.
Of course, I don't really sleep here...

I LOVE this ball pit and tunnel!
The afternoon sun is pretty bright in here, Wish I had my shades.
You know, Mommy does put me in clothes, sometimes! But I LOVE to take them off!@
These are my jungle animals from next to the window. I point at them and growl. They ALL growl!
And here are my ocean animals.

Anyway, I hope you enjoyed your mini-tour of my room. I'm off to eat some dinner.

Future's so bright...

How will they look if I adjust them a little?
How do I look?
These are my shades. Not as fun as Mom's!
Maybe I'll try them both together!

Sad sad day at the dentist

Mommy can't stop crying.

She took me to a fun place this afternoon with me-sized chairs and a rocking horse in the waiting room. She filled out tons of forms, and then we went back to a room with a funny chair and a TV in the ceiling!

She held me on her lap, and laid be back so a nice woman with a mask on could look in my mouth.

Then she told mommy "Severe Decay - he will need immediate treatment." I'm going to let her explain it.

:( :( So, Brady has ECC or early childhood carries. His four top front teeth are all showing significant signs of decay- the top right corner incisor is down to the pulp and we need to take super care and get it treated very soon or they may have to extract it.

I can't stop crying.

My poor little bubbah. They told me I have two options:

1. General Anesthesia at a hospital, 4 crowns. One of the teeth may not have enough to crown, and may need extraction anyway. This option is ~$4000.

2. No Anesthesia at the dentist's office. This would involve nitrous, me holding him down while he screams and squirms, them extracting a tooth, and "patching" the 3 others. This would be around $1000.

I don't know about anyone else, but I only see one option here.

I can't stop crying. :( Brady on the other hand, is just fine. :)

I got to play with new people and toys today!

Mommy got me all dressed up this morning and seemed very nervous. She said we were going to my early intervention interview, and when we dropped daddy off at work today he told me "Say lots of words!"

When we got to the new building, I was very happy because the waiting room was full of kid sized tables and chairs and things to play with! Mommy wouldn't let me have her pen and scribbled all over a bunch of paperwork.

Then a nice lady came out and called my name and we went into a room in the back. I met Miss Amy, who was a speech pathologist, and Ms. Heidi, who was an occupational therapist.

They played lots of silly games with me and wrote notes. I showed them how I scribble on paper with crayons, and really wowed them with how well I can point to all the parts of my body, even my shoulder and knee!

The told mommy that I am spectacular and right on track in every area except speech. They said my speech is at a 12 month level. This is delayed, but not delayed enough that someone will come out and play with me!

They told mommy I need to work on the following things:
speaking 20-30 words
getting more interested in singing along with music and nursery rhymes
following 2 part commands like "get the shoe and bring it to mommy"

They told mommy about a bunch of tricks to get me to talk more. She has to sing to me and do nursery rhymes with me more. She also has to put my toys up in clear plastic buckets so I can see them, but have to ASK for them! They told her she's probably just too good at anticipating my needs!

I think she's relieved that I'm not that far behind and is very thankful for all the tips they gave her.

I'm going to go take a nap now... mommy says I have a dentist appointment on Friday! I wonder what that is!?
