Thank you Linda! I know we have had her only a short time, but I
couldn't imagine being without little Kimmy. She has added so
much to our lives already, and has been wonderful therapy for
teen sibling rivalries. LOL (they now whisper their arguments;
I'm knocking on wood). Hope you are feeling better Linda,
sending healthy thoughts your way! How's Lilo doing?
Call me crazy, but I can see lift off in Kimmy's eyes. She
stretches tall, extends those beautiful wings to the fullest and
just flaps away. Hmmm, wonder if this will be the day...On her
second trial of a bath, she atleast waded this time while I did
all the splashing. LOL We're getting closer, maybe??? Still
just plays with the broccoli, but she is eating beans and peas!
And she has already learned to step up and down on command. 5
weeks old tomorrow.
She did regurgitate(?) a little bit of her cereal for the 2nd
time on me. Once at Mary's and then last night, I was the one
feeding her both times. Her stools, eyes and energy level are
normal. But this time, I truely felt as if she was really giving
it to me (am I nuts?), as she walked up my thigh and on up to my
chest, bobbed, chattered and then did it right down the inside
of my shirt. LOL, warm dribble. Not sure if this is an insight,
my imagination (Oh no, I am nuts!) or something I might be doing
wrong and/or should be concerned about. Ate breakfast just fine
and still coming out the other end very well!!!
Now that she is eating some of her veggies and millet, how can I
tell she's getting enough? I'm still giving her cereal after the
veggies and I quit when she shows no interest, but it can very a
lot (the cereal). No sign that she is eating from her dish in
her home, but does the millet.
Sorry my post are so long. You'll have to excuse me, I am just
so excited about this adorable cutie and know I still have so
much to learn.
