Liiiitle behind on this one. It's been a crazy month. My sweet boy has adjusted so well to his new glasses. Other than the first day (on which I told Jordan Hutch would just have to be blind because I could not force him to wear them ... I believe I put them back on 2,345 times) he has done great. He even asks for them when he wakes up or after his bath. And he says "gasses" all the time and notices all other people who wear them, too. I keep getting the question of whether they are helping him ... and my answer is I guess. I haven't noticed a major change in his actual vision ... he looks at books constantly, which he was doing before the glasses, but he does seem more confident in his walking/climbing. He's less fussy and cranky, particularly in the evenings. And he is sleeping like a baby who loves sleep. So all that to say, yes, I think we've seen huge strides in temperament and behavior ... I think he was working so hard to see that it was making my guy cranky about all other things.
So, yes, sleeping. Most nights all night. In his own bed. I don't even know who this kid is y'all.
He also had new tubes put in and adenoids removed after an insane stint with lots of infections when the old ones were no longer working. Surgery was pretty easy, as was recovery. About 10 days afterward, he had fever of 103-104 for a few days and the word "pneumonia" came back to haunt us ... but thankfully it turned out to be a viral throat infection ... which then led to another ear infection. Praise Jesus for ear tubes. Maybe (maybe?) we can hit a well streak.
And the talking. People. He talks. All. The. Time. About everything. Every day there are new words. And words strung together. And song singing. Brilliant, I tell you. His laugh is the sweetest sound in all the world. We all love to get him giggling so hard he can barely stop.
We wrapped up music school, which was his favorite thing he's ever done in his whole life. He also loved sister's soccer season because sometimes he got to kick the ball at practice.
