A few updates...

We have had the fever and coughs filtering through our household. I think we are finally through with that!
This week, Love turned 5! I can't believe how time has flown by! I look at Blessing, who is almost 8 months, and remember that Love was his size at 19 months when we brought her home! She is so darn smart, and sometimes has these conversations that sound like you are talking to a fourteen year old, along with the attitude too!

Josiah was seen at Gillette hospital last week for his hand. He doesn't have any finger bones, but they are hopeful that his wrist bones will start growing in the next 6 months. He has such good movement in his little palm, that they seem to think this will only get better. He uses his little hand a lot now, using it for punching, scooping, pushing, balancing, etc. He is really not limited.
He will be having surgery tomorrow for his umbilical hernia, and circ. Unfortunately, he has so much skin that has been stretched from his hernia being so big, they are having to remove a lot of that skin. He will not be able to have a belly button at this time because of this. Believe it or not, his hernia expands to the size of a small baseball when he is crying.

Next week we go in for consult on his two lazy eyes, and next month it's in to the nose dr. for consult on his "snorting." The snorts are too cute!!

I promise some more pics within the next day or two! Just really busy!

We'll be praying tomorrow for Josiah's surgery. .is it weird that I can hardly write Josiah b/c I just think of him as blessing?!

Kiss the little man for me!
