He has such a happy and wonderful personality. He is oficially saying "mama" and making all kinds of faces and noises, playing with new toys, and sitting up for a little while on his own. He isn't crawling or getting on all fours yet, but we work on that daily. His physical therapist is just awesome.
A couple days ago we had a feeding specialist come out to our house and she watched Gunner eat the first stages of baby food and his formula in all different ways (through a bottle, a spoon, a syringe) and she said that something is definitely going on in her opinion with the swallowing of his baby food. His tongue is fused to the bottom of his mouth so he chokes and gags food down. Gunner doesn't have a problem eating with a bottle and I mentioned that, but she said that the nipple on a bottle is so long that it puts it in the back of his throat and all he has to do is swallow, he doesnt have to lift his tongue to push it back then swallow. So, she said that there would definitely be a need for a swallow study to be done to see what exactly is happening when he swallows and HOW he swallows, which brings me to the next thing...
Cody is working right now in Minnesota, this job is about 6 weeks, he said yesterday that they are confident that they will get done sooner. I'm ready for him to be home. Gunner misses him badly as do I. We need a family vacationg bad. Just to get away from everything. We will probably go somewhere close when he gets back. Just us three. Gunner and I are even considering going with Cody on the next job if it is short and in a cooler state. :) That would make us all three happy.
He is looking more and more like Cody everyday. I love him and Gunner to the moon and back. They are my life. Cody and I are thinking about finally getting married soon. I am so ready, and BLESSED. (In caps because I am screaming at the top of the hills that I am BLESSED) BLESSED to be marrying my best friend, the father of my son, someone who loves me at my worst and my best.
Recently there have been many wildfires across Oklahoma. Many have lost their homes and everything along with it. My grandma and grandpa thankfully have a home still, but they are without electric as powerlines and poles have fallen down and burned. While the electric companies are fixing this problem, they are staying with me and Gunner. Gunner and I enjoy it as do they.
Thank you everyone for reading! Until next time! :)
