Thur Nov 26, Thanksgiving

Thank you for you, my beautiful baby boy. We love you like nothing else in this world.

Wow, there are so many things to be thankful for in this situation. I wanted to say thanks to all my friends, family and every one out there who reads this blog. There were some days I could barely keep myself together and somehow writing this helped; you have no idea how much. My heart aches to look at early pictures of him. I don’t think we realized how fragile he really was in the beginning. I also wanted to express my gratitude for the nurses at the hospital, they are bordering on sainthood! We love you guys!! And of course the Powers that be for blessing us with this beautiful boy!

Can you believe how much he’s changed!?!?

My little man came into this world demanding attention and now he holds it with his charm. We are so grateful to have him in our lives…Your Momma and Daddy love you so much, Kye!

Sunday Nov 15

Daddy got to take Kye out on Saturday(for the first time by himself!) was for an RSV shot (upper respatory infection...dangerous for babies with lung issues) but, he made the best of it. They stopped by to see me at work and then went by the resturant. I told him to be sure to get a few pictures because it's their first trip out together...this is what we got.
I adore my husband! He cracks me up!! He admits he's not that great at the self photo thing!!! He did ok in the end.
Kye is 10.4 pounds. I wish the little booger would gain faster! He's gaining ok, about 10 oz in 2 1/2-3 weeks, I just worry about him getting enough. He's a happy little guy though. I mean he has his fits, as most of you know (he can throw an impressive fit!) but, as a whole he's a good baby. We have no problem putting him to bed (knock on wood) he'll lay there and play till he falls asleep. When he wakes up he'll usually play some before fussing to eat. He still has his stomach issues, you can actually hear his belly gurgling...poor kid. Hopefully he'll grow out of that soon enough.

Tue Nov 11

Here are a couple of pictures of our walk in Forest park. We decided late Sunday (A friend and I...and Kye's future best friend)to meet up and stroll around on a beautiful Monday afternoon. We planned to meet around 12-12:30ish. I'm fortunate that, said friend and I have planned many things together, including getting pregnant, because unlike getting pregnant together this plan didn't work out as smoothly as...well planned. It didn't seem like an adventure when we decided to go, didn't think we needed a schedule to follow in order to achieve the goal of a stroll. Well my friends let me tell you it took us about 4 hours to take a 20 minutes walk! Who knew! We both needed to eat, then the boy's needed to eat and poop and...I can't even tell you why it took us so long to actually get to the walk! For about half the time we were crammed in my little car tending to the kids! It's crazy how much time floats away when your trying to do something that used to be a very simple task. I'm so glad I had her to experience this with! If I try to explain to anyone (except a mom) how long it took and how tired I was after they'd think I was insane and very out of shape! I'm lucky to have a friend to share all of this with, it's truly priceless.
Oh and I thought this was adorable so I added it...

Sunday November 8 09

sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet boy!!!!!

Kye's doing great! He's gonna be a musician like his Uncle Mike and Uncle David! These tiny rattles are perfect for him...maybe we'll move him on to something a little bit cooler later! He loves to shake rattle and roll! He's laughing a lot now and holding onto things, as you can see here! I tried to get a video up but had trouble so, here's a pic.

Our new thing is tummy time. He's not a big fan so far! We're working on it though. I've talked to lots of mom's who are having the same issue. Since 'back to sleep' became the thing to do, kids don't get much time on their bellies. It's good for upper body development and neck strength...really pisses him off though!

When we went to the physical theripist, she said his little head has a slight flat spot on the left side. For so long we weren't able to lay him on his right (Doc said we can now but we're still leary). We've always rotated him, something we learned in the NICU to help head shape but not as much on his right; we're working on that too. We have another appointment with the pt in a few weeks to check progress. Babies heads are pretty pliable so it should even out by then.

It was so nice out that we went on our first stroller walk today! He loved it! I think the fresh air did him good.
