In the petting zoo there was a boy with pain on his face and Maryam walked up to him and pointed at his face and said, "oh no, boo boo face." His mother and I explained that it was paint and then she kept walking up to him and pointing and saying "paint face."
After the zoo we headed up to San Marcos for what we hoped would be Maryam's last Synagis shot of her life.....we're not so lucky. Southern California has decided to extend the RSV season through May. So, as a precaution, Maryam will have two more shots. Her next shot will be March 30 and her last (hopefully) will be April 27th. Her nurse Clavel said that she thinks that Maryam should be allowed to play with children, just to be careful that she isn't around sick children.
She was weighed as usual. Last month she had gained weight which was awesome news. However this month, she lost weight. She's back down to 25 pounds. We were very disappointed by that. We've been giving her the full 4 cans of Pediasure per day and she's been eating a bunch more food than she ever has. We can't figure out why she's still losing. Our ONLY theory is that she just burns off all of her extra calories. Maryam runs everywhere, she's constantly running or dancing. We're guessing that the constant movement is what is causing her weight loss.
At this rate, Maryam will be able to wear the same summer clothes this year as she did last year! The good news is we'll save money on clothes this year! AND maybe we'll even get her potty trained before we have to move up a diaper size. Who wants to spend the same amount of money and get fewer diapers? Not me! Just to be sure, I put her in the dress I bought for her to wear to Charlie's birthday party last year and it fit her just fine.
