Stupid Cat.....Cute Baby

I realized late last night that the collar the vet had placed on Maggie wasn't preventing her from messing with her stitches. I realized that she has been licking them and they now looked infected at the bottom section. Great. So this morning Jason had to take her back to the vet. They put a larger, rigid collar on her and now she is quite comical as she does not realize that she needs more clearance around her head. The collar is clear plastic so she doesn't seem to see that the collar is causing her not to be able to squeeze through her normal spaces. We now have to wash her sutures daily, give her oral antibiotics, and apply antibiotic ointment. Arrgh. Will however is doing well. He received a baby shower in a box today from our best friends in Florida, Dave and Laura. They will always be considered his surrogate aunt and uncle, and if we could live next to anyone the rest of our lives, it would be them. Although we would all get nothing done except play round after round of scrabble and rummikub. Laura sent me an adorable memory book, and many other goodies. So now I have no excuse not to make Will a great album. Molly and I walked to Whole Foods and got milk today and went to lunch at the diner. We also stopped at Starbucks and I tried to nurse in public with a non nursing bra. Not easy. So when we got home I did laundry. Jason spent this evening exercising the baby, I think he wants him to be sitting by the end of the month. It is quite funny to see him making the baby practice all kinds of motions. Tonight he did various swim strokes,raking leaves, and drying dishes. Preparing him for his future chores I guess. Molly and I went to Nordstrom Rack tonight and found a few more sleepers for Will since he still doesn't fit in most clothes. I am going to weigh him this week though so we hope he won't be in newborn much longer.
