And yes, baking powder is the gift that keeps on giving because I've cleaned the same areas three times now, and I continue to find powder. Buuut yes, I'm happy to be driven insane by their toddler boy antics as long as everyone is healthy!
Jax is still drinking his milk. He hasn't taken more than 2oz in one sitting again, but he's still consuming it and today I gave him a breakfast cup of milk for the first time ever. He only took a few sips, but it was neat to offer him a "breakfast" instead of just his backpack. His pump rate is going up nice and slow, so he's "eating" a bit faster now.
I pulled down some paper-paged books yesterday (yes, I'm grasping at straws to keep them entertained during this rainy week), and Jax is in LOVE with a Dr Seuss book about Elmo finding Sesame Street. I must have read it 20 times in the last 48 hrs. The boys are destructive, so they're only allowed access to board books and they can only touch paper-paged books if I'm next to them. I hate to see books destroyed and unappreciated! So we've been looking through a lot of paper-paged books this week!
The boys had a good speech therapy session yesterday. Jax is having a nice tiny explosion of at least attempting many words. He uses ALL DONE consistently now and will yell, "ALL DONE DADA" when he wakes up in the morning and when he's ready to get out of his chair when eating. That's the closest to a sentence we get out of either of them, so it's neat to start seeing some communication. Brady is still struggling, but has shown definite improvement with attempting some words as well. Not that Jax is very clear when he says words, but Brady seems to have an even more difficult time with the actual pronunciation of most words. Although he surprised us and said CAKE rather well, that's my boy!
