Blogging through 2010...

the 5th anniversary of blogging through....
i went to the first post of every month and wrote the first sentence or line of that post (not the title, unless there is no text.
i love looking back and reading what the beginning of each month held.
here goes.....

February: for this movie

March: hope things warm up soon

April: trying to decide on a camera strap and not sure which one

May: my little levi's man

July: my one month old girl

August: my girl is two months old

September: 3 month old girl

October: 4 month old girl

when you daughter is born on the first of the month and you get pictures and post them every month....that becomes the first post of the month. i love it though

Tigger Ears Day 1

today little guy got his tigger ears a.k.a. hearing aids. it went pretty well too. a lot of it was going over the process of using them with us and how to put them in and change batteries and store them but then we were able to put them in his ears.

little guy has been somewhat traumatized over the past couple of months. he got stitches in august and then had them removed and just last week he got his flu shot along with a finger prick for a diabetes test, which came back borderline so they had to draw blood. to sum that up he isn't diabetic, good news.

so when it was time to get the hearing aids in he was not to thrilled with it. even when we held them up to baby girl he was still apprehensive. he kept saying no owie, no owie. reassurance wasn't enough that he wasn't getting an owie. once we got them in all was fine and he let us put them in and take them out a couple of times.

we got some of it on video and i will try and post it later. the audiologist told us that since he has some hearing function that the wow factor when we put them in wouldn't be as great as if it was a child with little to no hearing function. he was very quiet though. he just sat there and listened. the audiologist had some noise makers and was using them to test to see if there were any noises that were to loud that hurt his ears. all noises were fine. in fact the most annoying ones were his favorite (go figure).

he is doing pretty well with them in though. there are times when he reaches for them and wants to pull them out and says all done but we just let him know that it is okay and he forgets about them again.

while it is something that i would have never wished for my child i am super glad that for now there is something that we can do to help him to hear better. they are very cute on him. Christmas came early for us. we are thrilled.

i'll keep posting as new things happen in our every growing adventures with this little person that God has entrusted us with. but for now that is all i have. hopefully pictures to come soon.

Big Boy Bed

last night was little guy's first night in a big boy bed. it was probably long overdue but he didn't have any issues with the crib so we just left him in it. he did great. i'm thinking it was because he was really tired, he didn't take a nap yesterday. however at 550 this morning i heard a click and i jumped out of bed and got my phone (for light) and headed toward his room. when i got to the hall he was standing right outside of his door with his hands behind his back. i'm not sure what he was waiting for or if he just couldn't see once he got in the dark hallway. it was super cute though. now to teach him to stay in his bed. :)
