Well I have to say Braden is really doing well. We started him on Singuliar which seems to be helping him with his drainage. I was worried at first but so far so good. He has been eating really well. He has even learned to use a fork. I have to help him with getting the food on the fork but he takes it and will put in his mouth. That is huge for him. So exciting and even though he prefers to be fed by me it's still a big step. He has also moved into a variety of flavors instead of only eating one food at a time. He is enjoying choices at meal time and that is also a huge step forward. I really think watching the little girls at preschool has had an impact on him. :-) At this last ped visit Braden weighed in at 30 lbs. Wow!!! I am so thrilled and he has also grown in height to 37". He can reach things I don't want him too. lol But that's ok. He is also using his signs and we have gone away from trying to use pictures. We are so thankful he is open to communicating now and making more of an effort. Now we will have to learn additional signs so that we can keep up with him. :-)
Grayson is now 21 lbs and 31 ". He is into everything and loves to climb into, onto, over and under everything. lol He is very curious and such an explorer. He loves the outdoors and is over all so much fun. He is a big breakfast eater and the Pediatrician said not to worry about his lack of variety but make sure he doesn't drink too much milk. So he is doing well. I'm just glad he is eating and feeding himself. I was really getting worried. We are also working on teaching Grayson sign language. It will help his IQ according to research and it will also let him communicate with Braden. :-)
I am posting a video of Braden eating with a fork and pics of the boys playing with their new pirate ship water table. They love it.
