For it to be April 3, there should be birds chirping, sun blazing and bits of green poking out of the ground. The air should be warm and smell like rain. WELL.... here in New England it is cold, drizzly and gray... not light gray but more like gray-to-black. We had a small peek of spring last week but we're back to a wintery mode. All we need is another April Fool's Day snowstorm like we had 10 years ago to top off the week.
It's like we're in a standstill -- not quite spring weather yet, but too warm for the sweaters. We are in a plane inbetween winter and spring. Coincidentally, that is where Brady is too. He was having a gusto end-of-winter, eating food pretty well, sleeping on a schedule, learning new tricks, sitting for a good amount of time. Then we went to the nutritionist who was happy in general with him, but we're still trying to add in more calories. Since then, he has been not eating a lot of food and not drinking a lot of bottles. I will probably find out in another week or so that he has an ear infection or strep throat or something... there are no symptoms but ironically this kid never complains, just doesn't eat! Of course if I used not eating as a symptom of an illness we'd be at the doctor for fruitless appointments every day.
If you looked at Brady, though, he's not a skinny little peanut. He seems very proportionate, just small. He is growing length-wise, and his cheeks and belly jiggle when he bounces around. He is more active, which also accounts for not gaining weight really fast. Argh - seems like a nevernending cycle.
PT-wise he's doing pretty good, still making strides. I am hoping he will be able to do more when the warmer weather hits and we're outside more.
