We went to a nice dinner place where there were lots of people from Pop's work. I got to meet a whole big bunch of new nice friends. I even got to cuddle with a few nice ladies like Miss Cathy, Miss Donna (I remember her from when I went to work with Pop once!), Miss DeeDee, Miss Linda, and Miss Cindy. If I forgot anyone, I'm sorry! I didn't get to sit with Miss Julia , but she said next time I would get to. They were all really nice, though. Everyone was eating yummy pizza, but I didn't get any. Pop had root beer! I didn't know he ever drank anything but Dr Pepper! Everyone said that I was pretty and sweet and must look like Mommy. Pop just made a face when they said that and said Ha Ha, but he wasn't smiling. I think they were being funny.
I cried a little bit because it was kind of loud in there with everyone talking and stuff. Some people tried to help me be happy again, but they didn't know the trick like Pop does. I like when people pat me on my back real good. Some of them were just afraid they would hurt me because I'm little, I guess, but Pop showed them how. He's good at making me feel better when I'm crying. He just bangs on my back and I know he's got me and it's gonna be ok. My Pop is strong and takes care of me good. People always look funny when he helps me be happy, but I like it.
Mommy had gone to dinner with some other friends, so when we got home Pop told her how good I was. Then he went to play cards with the boys. Thanks for taking me out, Pop! Nice to meet all of you, work friends!!
At lunchtime, Pop came home and took a little nap with me. He's very good at napping, and it was pretty cozy.
Maybe by my birthday in a few weeks I'll be able to sit for a bunch more seconds.

She has also been extremely interested in her tubing while it's hooked up for her bolus feeds to the G-tube. She spends the entire feeding--granted, it only takes about 3 minutes (perk of the situation)-- reaching and following the tubing around when I move it to add more formula or to try to evade her grasp. She's been showing great attention and focus for extended periods compared to just a couple weeks ago.
Tonight, she really went crazy though. Pop was relaxing on the couch with some Sudoku and Braska came for a visit. She took an instant liking to that little paperback book and spent the next 25 MINUTES grabbing, shaking, giggling, kicking, and generally getting a crazy good workout while loving every second. This is a record by far for activity, focus on one object, strength in her grip on something not very easy to hold, and plain old fun. Here's a couple snippets that were about 15 minutes into the fun time... she'd slowed down just a tad and was relying more on her feet.
Every time we'd take it away, thinking she was done, she'd reach out and grab it again. This was right as she was heading to bed, and she was pretty tired, but it didn't stop her from being super jazzed about this book. When she finally did finish, I filled her little belly and off to bed she went. She was out like a light...even more than her normal instantly-to-sleep pattern. Both of us watched her playing with big looks of amazement. It was great to see. I wish I'd have caught more at the beginning. Even though she looked like she was finished at the end of the second video, she went on for another 6 or 7 minutes. She almost seemed obsessed! We're going to test it out again tomorrow to see if the same item is as interesting.

I showed off how strong I'm getting, and I held myself up on my hands and knees for longer today than I have before. Mommy and Miss Robin were pretty happy with me.
Miss Robin had a new toy today that had lights and played music...my favorite! So I sat for a little while and played with it. But I only like doing that for little bits of time. I'm starting to stay up for longer though, if I have someone to help me just a little.

Then after church we came home and changed into our Bears wear. It was time for football!
Mommy's been teaching me how to cheer and get all excited at the right times. She says maybe someday I can be a cheerleader like she was a long time ago.
There was lots of times to cheer, but there were also some times to be sad. In the end, the Bears didn't win. Bummer.
Tonight we had some nice friends come over and help us a WHOLE BUNCH! Mommy told the story here. Here's me and Kaylee watching everyone else work.

(14 lbs 2.5 oz)
Since it's been kind of cold here the last couple days, I got to wear a new outfit that Auntie Rachel got me. It has a jacket and everything. I must have been looking super cute because Mommy took a whole bunch of pictures while she was trying to get me to smile.
Today is my Uncle Jody's birthday. This is a picture of us when I was just a tiny baby, not quite one month old. He's a veder-in-ary-in or something like that. He takes care of big animals and sometimes little ones too. Some people call him Dr. Joel, but I already have plenty of doctors, so he's just Uncle to me! Happy birthday, Uncle Jody!!!

Mr. Nathan also came along later to eat quick with us girls. He's married to Miss Janet, so that's why we let him come with us. Mommy used to work with Miss Pat, and she was really happy to see her. It's been a long time since she got to see her before. And I hadn't ever met Miss Pat, so it was fun. She talked to me and played with me. And she took a picture of me and Mommy showing off our Patty Cake funtime.
Hope we can have lunch with them again soon!

Look what Pop did last time I got all messy with food. Mommy told him no more of that!
Thanks for coming so often to see how we are and what's up in Braska's little head.
Also, I forgot to mention on this side that there was a Braska post on Just RK with some video...in case you're interested.
Make it a great day!!
