So we had a full day today. Emily had to be at softball early today for practice, and then her game. Emily was incredible again, and has really had a fire lit under her tail this year. She has always been great at softball, but now she has just really shown she loves the game. She brought two runners home, caught a pop fly, and pitched great. I was very proud of her! Jude came a long, and spent the better part of her game smiling at everyone that walked by.
After the softball game we packed in the car to go get Emily fitted for my sisters wedding. She is going to be a junior bridesmaid, and really believes she is hot stuff due to her title! She is getting a "grown up" dress ,and it's very cute on her. Jude went with us on that trip as well, and all the women at the bridal store cooed over Jude.
Jude is doing fairly well on his eating, but he is still not up to par. We have to force the nipple into his mouth before he will start sucking on it. Although, he is also acting a bit more....... "normal". I hate that word, but it's true. He smiles, cries, sleeps, and just seems to enjoy life. I am holding on and treasuring this time with him. You can see Jude's CP, but honestly all I see is a happy baby.
I did have my first episode of having to hold my tongue amongst those who are ignorant. I heard two mothers talking about how overindulgence in children creates problems with their behavior. I agree that spoiling your children without teaching them responsibility can be detrimental. Although, she then said "Yeah my sister has a son that's totally disabled, like he is in a wheelchair, yet she still buys him NEW brand names shoes and his feet cannot even touch the ground in his chair. It seems like such a waist". Stop........hammer time.............I almost SLAPPED A HO! I understand that in all practical purposes this may be true, but is the kid a waist too? Does he not deserve the same things other children have?
So we are now barricaded in our house because they just turned the highway into a one way. A person cannot even get a pizza in my area due to the race traffic. Although, I am so happy to be inside with my family. I am cooking stuffed bell peppers, and listening to the dog next door yell bark bark bark.
Have a great weekend.
