What a Week of Milestones :)

Monday was Micah's first day of preschool! He had a very good day!!
First Day Success Smiles :)
And Mason rolled over for the first time (back to tummy)!

Today Mason ATE this much food by mouth!! (well, this is what is left!)
He decided he doesn't like thin foods like stage 1 and 2 baby food. He skipped to chicken and stars (chunky stage 3) and didn't protest or retch AT ALL even with the spoon in his mouth (he usually won't tolerate ANYTHING in his mouth)!! :D What a BIG BOY!! :D I cannot even begin to explain how excited I am about this!!

Tomorrow we are meeting with OT to go back to once a week, and add speech therapy. His PT is going well too...look at how he can hold up his head now!
 And he is pushing up so much better during tummy time! Next stop, crawling :)

Friday is his FIRST BIRTHDAY!! Has it really been a year?? Oh my. Anyway, anyone who would like to stop by about 7 pm Friday night (19th), we will sing to him and see if he wants some cake :)

All we can say is GLORY TO GOD!! :D

HOSPITAL UPDATE: Mason still has his rash from Fifth Disease/parvob19 virus (he was in the hospital from the 5th to the 7th after a trip by ambulance due to respiratory distress from uncontrollable secretions). But his wheezing and congestion are immensely better!! He seems to be having some new types of seizure-like episodes though, that don't affect his oxygen saturations/heart rate ... the neuro has upped his seizure med to see if this improves the situation. Pray it works like a charm so he can continue his good progress (hard to eat if you're staring off into space unresponsive, in an absence seizure). Pray for Micah too; doc says he also has hypotonia to a lesser degree and could use PT/OT for some of his issues, especially low muscle tone/weakness around his joints/ankles/shoulders and for sensory issues/fine motor help (his hands get tired easily and affects the length of time he wants to do crafts/writing/coloring/drawing, etc). So we will be getting him evaluated for that in next couple weeks. They are both also getting bloodwork Thursday to check to see if their re-vaccination helped them build more antibodies to pneumococcal strains.

“I am the LORD, the God of all mankind. Is anything too hard for me? Jeremiah 32:27
