update on the little guy...

My how time flies...our little man is already 3 1/2 months old and growing so fast! He gets smarter every day and I love watching him learn new things. He keeps me so busy, I have little time to post, but I just wanted to make a quick update. His impending surgery is was too quickly approaching, and I am scared to death. The recovery is rather quick and they say that most kids do so well with it, but it is just such a scary surgery. Thanks to the internet, and some wonderful sites, I've been given some wonderful resources to learn more about it. I didn't know there were so many children with this condition. If you would like to learn more, check out Cranio Kids, CAPPS kids, or Cranio Care Bears. They are wonderful sites with merchandise and advice for parents with children who have craniosynostosis. So glad I happened upon these sites, because they are just wonderful.

Steven is so beautiful and he amazes me every day. He sleeps completely through the night now. Which, is a miracle because when we first brought him home he didn't seem to sleep at night at all. But now he eats his last bottle at 9:30pm and doesn't eat again until 7:30am. He is learning new sounds, and just started grabbing his toys and trying to eat them. I think soon he will be sitting up, and I can't wait to start feeding him real food...just a few short months away.

As for now we are trying to make it past June 20th. Hopefully I can find time to update every now and again, but until then, wish us luck. And we could use lots of prayers as well.
