We had our 18 month Well Child Check (yes a month late, but they wanted to wait until after surgery) today. Holy Cow this little boy, who I can't say is all that little anymore, has gained 6 lbs and 3 1/2 inches in the 6 months and 6 days he has been with us. That is after 2 major oral/facial surgeries that had him on soft diets for 7 weeks! He is now officially in double digits on the growth chart: ht/wt 11%/16%. Not to shabby considering at the end of May he was ht/wt 2%/1%. He is just getting so big. It makes me sad that he is growing so fast, but oh so proud at the same time. In respects to everything else he is doing really well developmentally. He is starting speech therapy in 2 weeks, but you can tell that he is already starting to try to say words. Can't wait till we hear Mama and Papa for the first time!
The last 2 weekends have been wonderful. Just Mark, Konnor and I having quiet family time. We went to the local zoo one day. It is a really small zoo, but Konnor loved the monkeys. We now have a piano for Mr. Konnor man. I know he is only 19 months, but the deal was to good to pass up so for now we just sit at it and he gently touches the keys. We plan on starting piano lessons when he is about 3, but until then I am going to get a beginner piano book and try to teach myself a few simple songs. Now that surgeries are done for awhile we are trying to settle back into a normal daily life routine. We are very excited about getting to celebrate the upcoming holidays with our little monkey man. We are so thankful everyday for the blessing of being his parents.
Happy early Thanksgiving everyone!!!!
