8 months old today!

Well of course I have to wish our big man a happy 8-mos birthday! Hard to believe, but I just stand in awe today of how great our God is, and what amazing things He has done for Brandt to be where he is...I am happy to report that all the bloodwork came back within completely normal limits, and the infection is just a bad memory!

He also had a good pediatrician appt (despite 4 shots) and is back to his 5th percentile for weight--yippee. We are able to start weaning him off the reflux meds, and Dr. Stoeber also gave me some help to continue supplementing his calories. He has really taken off with his solid foods--doesn't care for just the cereal but gobbles it down when mixed with a little bit of fruit or sweet potatoes.

And--we all survived my return to work last week. I miss him terribly but he's doing really well with Glenn's parents and sister all doting on him and eating up his back-to-normal bubbly ways. He continues to wake up at least once through the night, so the schedule has been pretty rough to date. I'm hopeful as he continues to heal completely he can return to stomach sleeping and at least be able to get through seven to eight hours...although after everything he's been through I have no complaints about an extra feeding through the night. Just much thankfulness for the continuing miracle of his life...


  1. Glad to hear Brandt is doing well! I miss you! I would love to hear some ideas for adding calories. Evie is growing well now but we're always trying to fatten her up :)
