Of course there is never a good time to have your child's face rearranged, but this is really lousy timing. We are flying Sunday night to Puerto Rico, and I'm concerned that SS will be in so much discomfort. It doesn't help that this will be my first trip alone with SS, no P to help pick up the slack. The Motrin is helping, as is all the TLC we are showering upon our brave warrior. SS won't be able to eat solids for a few more days, nor use a straw. Last Sunday Nana was suggesting milkshakes with ice cream and instant breakfast mix to put more meat on SS's bones. Little did we know we would be doing it as forced sustenance. We will also get her Pediasure to get as much nutrition into her soft, cold diet.
The Tooth Fairy increased her rate since SS lost her tooth in such a violent manner.
SS drank her milkshake quickly and appreciated the soft brownie chunks.
Now on to our usually bare walls. A few weeks ago I told P that I would look for one or two posters in Puerto Rico to have something on the walls. Then I thought about all the pictures we have taken over the years, and while looking for something else Online, I found that Costco makes collages for a very reasonable price. It took just minutes to put them together and they were ready in a few hours. Four frames later we had some adornment on our walls, to go along with our dragon fan. It was a witch to get a decent picture of the collages, but you get the idea.
A little something we picked up in Chinatown.
I was surprised to see how much SS remembers from our Chicago trip. Technically it should have been our Iowa for her first wedding trip. But even though we only spent two days in Chicago, those are the memories SS still talks about. The Bean, the interactive fountains, and even the Chinese sculptures exhibition. Probably the most significant trip from SS's point of view.
I might have to redo this one and the Maui collage, but it will do for now. SS was such a baby back then.
