Things have been going very well here. Jaden has been working very hard each day on trying to spend more time on his tummy and we have been trying to get him to want to crawl. He is rolling over very little and will not stay on his hands and knees without crying and then dropping to his tummy. He has come a long way in the last 2 weeks though. We are very proud of him and what he has to go through in order to accomplish these goals of tummy time, rolling over and crawling.
He still is not wanting to eat any solids. Speech will start next week and come to help figure out how to get him to want to eat. He has issues with the textures and always starts gagging. Every few days he will eat about half a jar of baby food. This will be a hard step for him to take as well.
We were supposed to have a cardiology appointment this week but of course Chip is out of town (as always) and cancelled it. Chip had said he definitly does not want to wait until Jaden turns one to have his appointment due to his bad heart function, but it looks like that is what will happen.
Less then 2 weeks and Jaden turns one. We can't believe how fast and slow this has gone by. It is amazing when looking back at all we have been through and where we are now. Jaden is a big boy now and has 5 teeth working on his 6th. He weighs 16lbs. 3oz. He is doing well overall.
We took our very first family trip out of the state since Jaden has been born. It was a very needed and overdue trip. We drove to Florida for a little over a week. We stopped in Louisiana on our way to see the hurricane damage. We then went beach hopping and stayed at Panama City Beach, St. Pete's Beach, Cocoa Beach, Savannah Georgia and Myrtle Beach S. Carolina. We had such a good time. Jaden was very amazed at how the sand felt and was shocked when feeling the ocean. Ash and Ethan did not want to come home. I will post pictures soon. It has been crazy as ever since we have been back.
Much love to you all, Steph
