The Bean got a great night sleep, starting around 8 p.m, however, I did not. We got up at 2:15, 3:20, 4:15, 5:05 and she'd declared herself done at 5:20, which means - time to get up and start eyeing herself in the mirror with her pacie. So simple, and yet she finds it so rewarding. She went back to sleep around 8:30, but then *insert mini violin* the phone rings, text msg's & emails ding... no rest for me. Dragging indeed.
I'm thinking that teething discomfort has started. The Bean has been unpredictably fussy. She sucking on her fist. She drooling a bit. But mainly, I've found that when I give her a cold pacie, she calms right down.
The regional hearing specialists called today and they're pulling us back to them (instead of OHSU/Doernbecher's) for our hearing aid fitting, as they do all the follow-up hearing related therapy. So, we now have an appt. in two weeks to see them. They will take a sort-of playdough mold of her ear, and send that off to some place back east that will create the ear-piece portion of Andi's hearing aid. This is the piece that will have to get a new mold every other month or so, as her ears grow. They said they have loaner hearing aids too, so, I will only have to pay about $38. for this, at this juncture anyway. Yippie!
I think this will be the weekend we're finally getting out of town and heading to the beach. I'm sure the weather will be less than ideal, but, at least it will be a change of scenery. It's will be a great first road trip for the Bean, and exposing her to our beach trip tradition we started many, many years ago. Should be interesting, exhausting, and freeing. I think we're all drooling.
