Life Starts Now.

Living each day to the fullest, because we know first-hand just how fragile life can be.

Thought I'd add some new pics of the little dude. Joel's doing lots of new cute things...(of course, he's a baby :) We picked him up a little teddybear attached to a blanket, and I think he made a friend for life. Everytime we give it to him he gets so excited!

And this is how we find him. He hasn't exactly rolled over in one fluid motion yet, but he's trying SO hard! I had just laid him on his back, walked to the kitchen, came back, and this is where he was. He does this over and over and over. And quickly! This kid LOVES laying on his tummy. Sleeping pictures are so precious anyway. He hasn't had much of a chance to rollover, so we're doing tummy time....which is super awkward by the way...but he seems to like it ok. This is Suzi, Joel's Occupational Therapist. She's very sweet, and Joel's still getting to know her. I love this picture....his poor butt had the worst rash!

As of yesterday, sprints are up to 30 minutes, three times a day. After being sick for a few days, he wanted to be distracted from sprints, because he wanted to depend on the vent to breathe for him. (Much like Connor did after being sick...trying to get him back to his own bed after healing from the flu was a nightmare!) Last night, we went for walks around the house, sat on the front porch and watched the neighbors make their loops around the block. I love moments like those. Just snuggling with my baby in a blankie....for a second, I forget all that we've been through and it feels normal. It was a peaceful I couldn't create if I wanted to. I am so thankful.
