Kyson has been so excited to start school and ride the bus with his buddy Makana. We'll really miss this fun boy at home. He's the best at playing with his sister and being my helper. I know he'll have a great time and learn a lot!
I had a great birthday yesterday. I was spoiled with breakfast in bed, my favorite Costa Vida for lunch at the park and then in the evening we went to my favorite place, Thanksgiving Point Gardens and did my favorite things, spent time with my family taking pictures! Then we came home and enjoyed my favorite chocolate cake (from Cosco) and Rocky Road ice cream! I was spoiled!
Almost everyday Gavin and Kyson get some time to sit with Liam and help him with his therapy. I love that they love it. Everyone keeps telling me how great it is for the siblings to have a brother with special needs and I have already started to see their special bond with Liam.
Here is Kyson with Liam. He usually always picks the corner chair to work with him, but today he chose this toy to work with Liam sitting up.
Here is Gavin helping him learn cause and effect..."If I push something, it makes a sound!"
Addy can be helpful trying out Liam's new toys! She loves to come and help when the therapists are here and it's sweet how much the therapists love her. Liam's vision therapists always brings something for Addy to play with or something she can do with Liam.
This sweet boy has been 8 months for a while now, but it has been quite a busy month! Liam had surgery for his un-descended testicle and circumcision. He did great at his surgery even the anesthesiologist was amazed! He has recovered well. While he was in surgery they also did an echo on his heart and his pulmonary hypertension was looking better, so we got to finally take him off of oxygen!!
We have been working on sitting up, and he seems to be getting stronger and stronger. Gavin and Kyson love to help me with his therapy every day. His brother and sister are so in love with him and always are wanting to touch, hold, squeeze, talk and play with him. Lucky boy!
