Long overdue pics and an update!
The issue I have with blogger is that you have to import all your pics from the last to the first so these pics are all out of order. Most people it wouldn't bug, but for me, it drives me a bit crazy to think that they aren't in order of when they were taken. Call me silly, but it still gets to me a bit!
So I took the time to upload all the pics and I will just blog in between. The other "issue" is that you can't tell which pic is what when you are typing so you have to go back and forth to try to match up comments with pics.
Anyway...it really doesn't matter.
Lochlan saw Dr. Arthur this past Tuesday. He was impressed with our guy. He said his eyes were hugely improved!!! woo-hoo!!! So happy. He didn't really say how good they are but improved is good enough for me. I was trying to sneak a peek at his notes but I couldn't really understand "doctor scribble." I'm pretty sure that if there was any issues to be immediately concerned about that he would have said. Loch will go back two days before his birthday to get a closer look at his eyes. He won't need to have the clamp put over his eye but if he doesn't get a good look, than Lochlan will have to go under. Praying that isn't necessary.
Julie, from the infant development clinic came on Thursday. She thinks Lochlan is doing fabulous. (I agree) She will be following up once every few months to make sure things are on target. But she was impressed with our lil miracle.
New sounds have begun to emerge. It's so neat to hear all the little noises he makes. Although I do feel that he is behind in that regard. I know he'll get there but it is definitely one thing we are monitoring. He doesn't babble nearly as much as Abby did at his corrected age. But Abby has always been way ahead of the curve.
He has also been getting stronger physically. Able to lean forward and balance a bit on his hands while sitting up. (with mommy's support of course) It's just a matter of a few weeks I think before he's able to sit up on his own.
On Family Day (Feb 21st) we took Abby skating for the first time. What a hoot! So cute! I wish I could figure out how to post video because it's really something special to see.
And last but not least I must leave you with another Abbyism. Although it came from mommy first! Sometimes when I feel slightly overwhelmed with everyone needing me at once, I'll say, "Just hold the phone!" I don't know why, I just do. I'm sure I heard it somewhere before. But anyway, the cutest moment came the other day when Abby, Lochlan, and I were at my best friends and Lochlan and I left to go to the store to pick up a prescription and Abby stayed behind to play. Well when I got back, she raced down the stairs and said, "Mommy, JUST HOLD THE PHONE! Give me two more minutes. I'm just watching a show!" Or something like that. So funny and totally random.
Love that girl!
