The Baby’s Off Button

Why didn’t anyone tell me about the off button until now? You learn something new every day, but not every day is what you learn worth getting out of bed for. Today it was.

We had to skip library storytime because Eliana had an appointment at feeding clinic. Turns out it was worth it because I learned about stopping her gag reflex by tapping on the spot above her upper lip. Now let’s see if we can get some baby food into this kid!

Two weeks ago when Shira and I took Eliana to her first storytime, she loved it. She was mesmerized. She waved when the librarian sang the bye-bye song.

It was Eliana’s first non-medical outing, and one of the things that made it so cool was that—nervous as I was about taking her out to what I knew would be an activity with other infants her age who would be developmentally light years ahead—as I walked in the room I saw a little boy in a wheelchair and breathed a sigh of relief that she wasn’t the only “special” one there.

I was bummed that we missed another storytime because of the appointment, but it was worth it. Also, as we were sitting on the floor of the waiting room playing with one of those cool wooden boxes with the abacus thingees on the sides and top, who should come in but our new friends from storytime? We commiserated over missing it today and chatted for a few minutes before the appointment. Yep, definitely a day worth getting out of bed for.
