He's gotten so "big" lately and so grown up. I can't even really explain it. He's just doing more grown up things. He's been going to Gymboree this spring and is doing well there. He's been eating better now that he's not on his appetite stimulant anymore. He's also off his diuretics so maybe that's what it is. Who knows? At this point we are down to one medicine a day...well two I guess...Prevacid and Flovent (a puffer med so I don't really count it). If things continue to go well we will start pushing for 4 hours off oxygen this weekend. The 3 and 3 he's off now has also made such a huge difference. Not having to haul around an oxygen tank anytime we leave the house is so nice. I can't wait for it to be like that full time.
Tomorrow Gaines get's assessed to see if he qualifies for Early Intervention speech therapy. I feel pretty certain that he will. He's making improvements but he is still behind in his speech. I kind of think he'll end up getting it on his own...but if he qualifies for the therapy, I'll take any help he can get.
Oh...you know how I've said before that I love seeing Gaines do things that Reed does or has done? Well tonight Gaines was playing in the bathtub laying on his tummy...like Reed does all the time. It just looked so "little boy playing in the tub".
Anyway, we celebrated his birthday two weekends ago in Birmingham with Beau's side of the family and last weekend in Andalusia with mine...which was also Easter. The pictures below are from the past weekend.
Loving life outside Saturday afternoon while Reed played in the sprinkler.
Sweet brothers playing together.
Happy again. These pictures don't even do him justice...he is such a beautiful child.
Cooling off with a Capri-Sun.
Sans cannula with Grandaddy (well my grandaddy, his great-grandaddy) at his birthday party. I am loving seeing that whole face more and more.
Hunting eggs with cousin Sarah Anne.
My family with my grandmama. I wish I'd gotten pictures with my other grandparents!
Cute little family of four.
Ok...this took a million years to put together. I'm out for tonight.
Love to all,
