April 4th, 2009 Kinnick is clapping!
Ok, some good news and some bad news.
First the good news... Kinnick finally learned how to clap her hands. We've been trying to get her to clap her hands FOREVER. Today, we were reviewing, Where are your ears?, Where is you nose? (She just learned these over the past couple of weeks), and I threw in, Can you clap? She just clapped. I'm so excited, I keep asking her to clap and pat-a-cake. I'm so proud of her.
Now for the bad news.... One of Kinnick's contacts came out today. I can't get it back in her eye for the life of me. I have nobody here to help, so she's roaming the house with 1 contact. These contacts aren't like your normal contacts. They are really thick - especially in the middle. They don't stay on your finger. They roll around like a ball - I'm not kidding. So, you have to hold all of her limbs down, hold her head still, pry her eye open with one hand and put this forever moving object in her 1/2 opened eye. Oh, and it can't take more then 30 seconds or you have to stop and wet the lens. If you drop it (which I did many, many, times), you have to wash it. I kept dropping it in her hair. It takes more then 2 hands to do all of this. I'm hoping this gets better real soon. She can leave the contacts in for several days or a week, but they strongly discourage it because it can cause cornea issues that would prevent her from being able to wear contacts in the future. So, since it is a daily thing, maybe Kinnick will get used to it and just let us put them in without restraining her.
