Just us, at home!
If you make it till the end of the first video you get to hear EJ talking and saying the sounds the animals make! He is getting so big!
Things have been so busy lately! I love it so much. I never once thought I would actually have this life. I look at my two boys and I am so grateful.
EJ had a great appointment at the hematologist last week. His ANC was so good that they said we could try the nursery at church! He went this last sunday and I was a wreck. He has NEVER been left with anyone since he was born. Adam has only watched him 2-3 times! So I was so nervous! EJ did great though! He cried when they put him down but he was fine when I went to get him. I was so proud! I just can't believe he is growing up so quickly. As long as he tolerates the nursery (illness wise) we can continue. This means I get to join bible study in the fall! YAY!
The other thing we learned at the dr appointment was that he hasn't gained weight again. It has been two months now and no gain. They told me to give him ice cream with carnation instant breakfast in it twice a day to boost calorie intake. So if you could just say a little prayer that he gains, I would really appreciate it. We have always struggled with his feeding and weight gain. But, over all he is doing great and I can't ask for anything more than that!
Last week I received all of Austin's homeschooling materials. We are using sing spell read and write to teach him to read. I am so excited to start next month! I am a little nervous because a huge part of me is a perfectionist and I want to be the best teacher I can be for him. I know it will go great though!
We are about to head out to our first playdate with a new playgroup! I have wanted to join one for so long but have such anxiety over meeting new people. We are all going to Mooyah though and I know we will have a blast!
This video is of EJ saying our dog's name "bella". I feel like he learns a new word every day! Don't mind my messy house in the videos ;) The cleaning fairy had yet to come that day! HA!
