What we do......

I haven't posted in a bit, so I thought I would do a fast update on our crazy household.

Scott is doing great, working and doing cub scout stuff. He is hoping to have a promotion at work here soon and maybe, just maybe, can get a day shift. I hope so anyway!

I am doing great too. Just keeping up with the homework, dr appts, therapy and everything in between. Scott working at night has taken a bit of a toll on me since I am left to do most of the time consuming stuff with the kids, but it'll be OK. I am looking forward to the last two weeks of December when we have a break from Dr. appts and therapy.

Trevor is doing pretty good. He his having some behavior challenges at school, but academically he is doing well. He has been having a bit of a rough time lately and been more angry than usual. I am still not sure what has triggered it, but I hope whatever it is will work through soon. He is already on medication for this, and I DO NOT want to add any more. He is looking forward to Christmas.

Jordan is doing great! He is still his energetic, talkative, and curious self. He is doing amazing at school and learning to blend sounds together to make words. He amazes me with all he knows. He has several 'girlfriends' still, but does have a couple boys he talks about now too. He is also looking forward to Christmas.

Here is a couple pictures from our photo shoot last month. I love these pictures because you can see their personalities as they were having fun.

And finally.... Josh. What to say about him?? He is doing pretty good right now. I took him in for a recheck on his ears yesterday and he has one ear still infected. So he is going on a much stronger round of antibiotics now. He has gained one of the two pounds he lost while he was sick with the H1N1 and RSV. He is doing amazing with the fact that he is hooked up to his feeding pump 24/7. He is such a trooper... I can't say that enough! He does have some sensory issues going on right now and I am working with his Occupational Therapist to hopefully help get things under control. He is feeling better all around with his daily calories in him, so he has so much more energy. He has started saying 'cool' and says it all the time. It is sooo cute! He has so many signs it's hard to keep track of how many. I would guess he knows about 25 or so.
Here are pictures of him playing peek-a-boo during our photo shoot. It was so cute!

So that is how we are doing. I am still waiting for Josh's EEG results from his sleep study. He is also being schedules for an MRI. I am hoping to wait until after Christmas, but we'll see. I hope everyone is doing well and enjoying this holiday season!

I seriously love those pictures. All that I have seen. They truely capture your kids' personalities. I'm glad all is going well, and hopefully Trevor can work through things okay. I hope Scott gets a promotion as well.

The boys are so cute! I can't wait to see you guys in a couple of weeks. I hope Trevors issues are only temperary and that Josh will continue with his progressing. Love you guys!

They're so adorable! They have so much personality! I hope things work out so you don't have to keep doing the night stuff alone. It sounds like that takes up a TON of time!
