April 12, 2008

Liam had his eye exam this past week. The Dr said he was very pleased with the results of the surgery. But- because Liam still doesn't track and because his eyes don't really dilate we are headed to see the specialist in Raleigh on the 29th. Liam finally hit 6 lbs this past week! YEA! He is filling out his preemie clothes! He has little chubby cheeks and a belly! He is 18 1/4 inches long now too. It's a long way from his 1 lb birth and 12 inches! Liam will get his MRI on the 28th and that will tell us a bit more about his brain development. We are still in prayer over his eyes and his development. At the moment- you'd never know he was a micro-preemie. He looks really good! One of our nurses got to see him last week and she couldn't believe how much he had changed in a month. She said she never would have been able to pick him out in a lineup!
To everything there is a season- and with spring comes all the yard work. And it's especially bad since I wasn't here all winter to work on it. I love the spring blossoms and the promises of renewed growth. Our family has grown and been renewed this past year with the changes and promises we receive through the Lord. Although the pruning has been difficult to bear.
Ian and Aidan are playing ball again. Ian's team is very good this year. I made it to a game last night after leaving Liam with my mom. People want to see the little miracle in our family but we still keep him isolated due to the cold and flu season. I do look forward to getting out with him!
Rylie got a camera yesterday so I will be posting her artwork shortly!

Wonderful he's doing well! My 1 month old doesn't track either, and our pediatrician isn't concerned. She said the tracking ability develops between 1-3 months. Isn't Liam only about 1 month age when you adjusted? Don't worry about it. He's a perfect little boy!
