Up And Running
No Isaac is not up and running, my computer is! It's been down for over a week and now and anyone who knows me well knows how much I enjoy my beloved computer. So what's a girl to do with her time? Did I really think that by taking a little break from cyberland I would instantly have more time?.....yeah right!! Shortly before our weekend trip Isaac started cutting 2 teeth and has had more secretions, which usually means more oxygen and also more suctioning. He's doing better today than last week as he decided to scare the nurse on the Saturday while we were gone by dropping his sats (oxygen) levels. I think he was just to making sure she was paying attention or maybe he just missed us or both. That's ok, I have been actually enjoying spending extra time with him as we are making up for the nursing hours we used up for our trip. In my spare ME time I have been reading a book called "Captivating" that was inspired the women's ministry at my church. I attend a Thursday morning group called "Becoming Women Of Grace" with some really amazing women who have become like a 2nd family to me, especially since Isaac has been born. Anyway Isaac's speech therapist suggested taking photos of items, people, toys around the house and using them as flashcards to form communicating in addition to the sign language. It's so cute to see how excited he gets when he looks at these pictures. In the photo Autumn is being a good sister lately and wants to have cozy time with her brother in the rocking chair. They snuggle up together and watch movies, (well Isaac usually falls asleep) it's so cute. The other photo is of him with his most favorite snuggle up toy, his glow worm. He loves to hug it. Such a loveable little guy!
