8 Months and 7 lbs!!



Who would have thought a year ago that we'd be at this place today! Noah is 8 months old and he has made it over the 7lb mark! He is 7lbs 1oz and 21 inches. He has a cold...again. He is just so susceptible to respiratory viruses and it is difficult to keep him healthy. But at least he is able to fight them off before they turn into anything more serious. When he is sick, the nights are rough but when he is healthy, thankfully he sleeps 12 hrs without waking.

Therapies are going well and we are seeing progress now that he's been out of hospital for a good long stretch. His head control has greatly improved and he is still working on trying to roll over. He's also working on his computer skills with daddy! Occupational therapy has started in our home as well. Speech therapy won't begin until after Noah's palate repair. Next week we will see Dr Mcpherson at the orthopedic clinic to fit Noah for a cozy seat (a special chair to help Noah practice sitting).

Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; His love endures forever. Psalm 118:1

I just love checking out this site and seeing God at work! Seeing Noah sit there makes him look so grown up- and to hear he's over 7 lbs is an answer to prayer! I'm still praying for you guys and that you'll have the energy needed for appointments and life...
love Ramona
