Ellie got a chance to go visit her boyfriend Christian, and pick up a new one, when we had our first ever play date yesterday. We went into Jamaica Plain and visited Christian and another little boy named Max. Christian is doing great post transplant and Max is here from Denver to get on Omegaven.
It was great to see both Christian and Colleen and Christian looks like a new little boy. First thing he did was push all the toys away from Ellie and then started hitting him self in the head with a couple of other toys. Such a boy!
Ellie got even though she later tried to use Christian as a stepping stool. He didn't really like that. He didn't like that, but they did have a good time exploring the great range of toys that Christian has.
Ellie does have one major problem though. She scares all the boys away.
When she gets really excited she lets out an incredibly loud squeal. It was this squeal that made all the boys cry. I don't think Christian or Max minded having Ellie come to visit, they just wished she would have been a bit more quiet.
Max is 8 months old and has been on Omegaven for 3 weeks now. It usually takes around 30 days for Omegaven to do it's thing, so they have a bit longer to wait. He is very cute hopefully we will get to see more of them before they go home.
I hope the boys had as much fun as Ellie did, she fell asleep almost as soon as she got in the car and took a nice long nap when we got home. It was great to see Ellie interact with other kids, we may need to work on her manners for next time. She just has to remember that you play with the boys not climb on them. Maybe next time Christian can teach Ellie how to say "ball" or how to do his great monkey impression.
