Lil Stinker!

Who needs a potty?

It's been way too long since my last entry and I apologize. Life has just taken me down a different path these last months.

Noah has been doing great. I few setbacks but nothing we couldn't handle. I just can't believe how quickly he is growing up. He will be 2.5 in two weeks and he fits the "terrible two" definition perfectly. I do remember how quiet our "sweet pea" was in his first 12 months of life. I would hold him in my arms wondering if I would ever know what his voice would sound like...... well fast forward and now I can't even catch him most times and don't even think about holding him for fear of him bursting my ear drum! Yes, my sweet pea is now at times my "lil monster" who loves to scream at the top of his voice for attention. Granted his list of words extend to 6.... daddy, hat, ball, up & down and when he is desperate for me not to leave him I will hear an occassional Mama. I love Noah to death and most days forget he is suppose to have a disability as he mirrors most typical children on a daily basis.

We are still working on his feeding issues and hope to move him to chewables in the near future. He has shown progress and now eats about 5 different foods that are pureed. ( sweet potatoes, yogurt, applesauce, pancake & banana). He started to self feed with a spoon about two months ago and is doing great. He is still on thickened only and drinks soy based milk and pedisure from a straw cup. His little tummy just can't digest any type of juice, at least not yet. When he is not sick,he is able to put on weight. Unfortunately he loses most of the "new" weight when he is sick so it's a vicious cycle. He certainly didn't get his weight issue from his Mommy.

Thanks Nan, I love my new wheels! Vroom Vroom!

I would like to send out lots and lots of hugs to all of Noah's friends (mine too)... and want to let each and everyone of you know that we are thinking about you and do check your blogs to see how everyone is doing. So our thoughts and prayers are on going even if you haven't heard from us in a while.

Hugs & Kisses - Terry
