Yes, he has FINALLY hit 13 pounds!!! We have hit a few bumps in the road along the way getting to 13 though. We seem to take 2 steps forward and one step back. Even now, he doesn't have his feeding tube in because he pulled it out a couple of mornings ago. Jerry didn't have time to help me put it in before he left for work. He said he would do it when he got home. No biggy i thought as that only meant two feedings without it. However i noticed he was doing this 'little' cough. I figured it was due to him pulling out his tube, and maybe he didn't get it up all the way at first and had irritated his throat. No, that wasn't it, he was getting sick! By the time Jerry got home it was a congested cough and he had a fever. UGH!!! But even with his sickness he went up in weight! Thank the Lord! I am only concerned now because when we put the tube back in he may get the runs again. And that puts his weight at a stand still. Over all he is doing well. His solid food eating skills have been improving immensely. He is almost sitting up all by himself now! He claps and is waving bye-bye too. Sooooo cute.
The girls have only two games left in their soccer season. We will have to come up with a game plan for the rest of the spring and summer. They need to keep active. Flannery was just born active :-) She is always on the go! Saoirse's activity level would be more of a normal active. But he older two....well they are below normal in activity level. Moira has always been that way. She has always walked slow, moves slowly, is quiet... Isabella used to be a whirlwind, but sometime around 4 years old she stopped. Hmmm, not sure why. But we are working on that now.
I had been concerned about being two weeks behind in their schooling (due to being in the hospital), but when i was working in their lesson plans for the month, we still come out ahead. We may have to still continue schooling the first two weeks of our summer break just to get in the 180 days required of us, but they will be ahead in lessons. As a matter of fact Moira starts the next level math book next week. And Isabella starts her next math book in about 3 weeks. So they will be a few months ahead in math by the end of the school year.
Not much else to write about for now. Saoirse, Jedidiah and I will be heading to the park in a bit. Our midwife started a homebirth meetup in this area. That should be fun! Have a great weekend.
Oh, yeah...Tracy.... we'll have to take you up in your offer to help us stock up in camo :-) I bought some camo material to make a tierd skirt for Isa out of it. But it is the desert camo. Although I don't think she cares what kind it is! We will be getting a toy bow and arrow for them soon. How and when did my life not become my life anymore? I always imagined pink, princesses, dress up as in "dresses" dress up, makeup.....now I have cowgirls, horsies, hunters, camo......very strange indeed :-)
