All Eyes On You

Today was a rather eventful day. IC had his two year check-up for his eyes today. He passed with flying colors. The Doctor doesn’t need to see him again until he turns 4. We have been so blessed with IC. His health has been just remarkable considering what he started from. He could have needed any number of surgeries, transfusions and there are numerous other health problems that could have very likely been stumbling blocks on his road to growing up. However, God has seen fit to bless him with smooth sailing along the way thus far. And we are greatful!

IC weighed in at 20 lb 4oz back in June. It is amazing how much he struggled to reach that mark. Now he can offically ride forward facing in the van. He continues to eat well and his vocabulary is increasing daily. He is now speaking in several three and four word sentences but he is a long way from holding much of a conversation. IC would much rather do his special dance than talk. (He dances when he gets excited or hears music). It is very funny!

OD is very anxiously awaiting the beginning of the next school year. This will be his seconod year in preschool, however, he will be attending all day this year. The timing is wonderful on this as Mommy is still cruising along on bed rest and there is only so much a Mommy can do to entertain a 4 year old, energetic boy. IC however, did not get so lucky. He is still stuck with Mommy everyday until the time for the new baby arrives.

Mommy is indeed still laying in bed, trying to buy as much time as possible for this next little one. Baby is now 28 weeks along which is the same week IC was born. The good news is that Everything appears to be holding strong at this point. Still, some days Mommy’s body still struggles with too many contractions. Making it to the third trimester was a huge milestone and the possibility of continuing farther is wonderful news for all of us.

Baby # 3 appears to be another boy! OD was praying for a sister but it was not to be. Baby also already weighs more than 2 lbs which is normal and very relieving. He is growing right on schedule with no sign of IUGR which was why his big brother was so small when he was born two years ago.

We will continue to post new updates periodically as things progress or whenever we get bored.;}
