Just thought I’d do a quick follow-up post to let you know that Book Boy and Book Baby are both A-OK.
The pencil erasers that BB stuck in his ears? The doctor managed to get one out on Friday, and the other one fell out at the playground on Sunday. He ran up to us with a little eraser piece in his hand, laughing, and said that he bumped his head (never did get more details about that) and caught the eraser as it fell out of his ear. He has definitely learned a good lesson, though, as it was most unpleasant to have the doctor remove the eraser on Friday. (And I have no idea what she would have done to remove the second piece if it hadn’t fallen out – might have had to refer him to an ear, nose and throat specalist.)
Book Baby has gained some weight – about 5 oz. from Friday to Monday, and her color (i.e. jaundice) is much improved. We’re still keeping an eye on her weight, and trying to make sure I nurse her as much as possible, but I’m not nearly as worried as I was last week.
Poor Two, on the other hand, didn’t have such a good day today – Book Girl woke me up this morning and said “Mom, you need to put Two back together!”
(Fortunately, it was a simple fix, and Two is good as new now.)
