Thank you all for your kind words, love, and support after I shared
the rest of Liam's birth story yesterday! He is a beautiful soul and I
am so proud to call him my son! I really wish I could express just how
much I love him, Dylan, Lexie, and Lily. I'm going to start turning my
blog into books so they can someday read these stories over and over
Today was a day filled with fantastic news! First, Grant received a
much anticipated phone call this morning and will start his new job on
Tuesday! He is really looking forward to working with this company.
Liam's nutritionist was here today. After weighing him and reviewing
his eating habits, we both decided that he could "graduate" from
services! He was 13 lbs 13 oz, which still puts him under the 5th
percentile on the typical chart, but he is on a consistent growth curve
on the DS chart. He is obviously small, but with the nutritionist's
advice over the past 3 months, he has grown so much!
The kids do know that Liam has Down Syndrome. Obviously, Lily does not understand, but she loves him dearly and is so gentle with him. Dylan and Lexie adore their brother. They are very protective of him and tell him all the time that he is just perfect. They are so loving, empathetic, and compassionate. I know Liam is only going to emphasize those qualities in them.
I try so hard to reply to every comment, but sometimes the emails build up in my inbox and I can't catch up or there isn't an email address attached to the comment. I switched methods, and I now reply to the comments within the comment section of the post. If you would like to see my reply, just click the notify me box on the lower right corner of the comment box. I don't get much time to myself, so this is a huge time saver for me!
Today I was spit up on and pooped on. All I could do was laugh! Welcome to the life of a mom.
I'm on a smoothie kick. Today's version was delicious: Milk, Ice, Bananas, Peanut Butter, and Chocolate Drink Mix. It was a nice change from my favorite Strawberry-Banana Smoothie!
Only 12 more days of school left! It would have been 6, but they have to make up snow days. We all are really looking forward to the (lazier) days of Summer!
Mondays are rough, but this one was good. Very good!
