Good Appointment

Our appointment went well - Isaac weighed 18lbs 9oz, and was close to 29 inches tall. They told us we could get the g-tube out now - which is kind of bittersweet. We are soooo excited, but honestly we are scared too. We still use it, its our crutch. We sleep soundly at night knowing he gets enough nutrition. Now what will we do when he won't eat? I'd say with PWS we aren't going to have to wait too long before we have to be limiting his food, so we just need to shut up and be thankful. :)
But no, we are so excited to see how well he'll do without it. It seriously gets in the way of his crawling because his sticks out so darn much, so its exciting to see how he'll act without it in the way! Oh and Johnson & Johnson Gauze watch out, you are going to see a severe decrease in sales in the next quarter. :)

EI Annual Review

Wow - its hard to believe my Isaac has been getting a year of EI services. We had the annual review and it was so great to hear how well everyone thought he was doing. I told Eric I figured they tell all moms these things to keep everyone happy - but it is really amazing how far Isaac has come. They think he'll be able to walk much sooner than originally thought. It was first said 2 years, but now they are hoping for in the next 6 months or more. That is GREAT NEWS!!

He is babbling all the time now. He is more quiet when he is around a bunch of people, but when it is just us at home he is a little silly chatterbox of noises. I love it. I secretly videotaped him last week a little bit (normally if he sees that I am recording he starts to grab for the camera).

We have an appointment next Friday at the Children's Hospital with Dr. Hardin - so we'll have to see how he's doing growth wise. We hope they are as impressed as we are. :)

Our little swimmer

Swimming makes a boy very very sleepy

Now I can't stop with the pictures

More of Isaac enjoying the beach

The little man decided to get his first tooth at the beach - little goofball.

He was not a fan of sandals.

A few shots of my little guy . . .
