Alex is crawling on hands and knee's!!!!
I everyone, I am so excited to share with you that my little Alex who is 17month old is now starting to crawl on hands and knee's for the first time. He has only army crawled. Today Sunday March 22, 2009 he crawled all day on his hands and knee's. I am so proud of him! With all that is going on right now in my life this is Amazing News! He has come so far! I truly believe removing the cataracts really helped him with his confidence in seeing! He wants to move around more and now this!
Doctors still don't know what is wrong with him. They found some things to do with his mitochondria but are not diagnosing it just yet. Tomorrow he is going to have an ultra sound of his heart. Tuesday he will go in and get his stitches removed from his Right eye. Then I think that will be it for him. I don't think this little boy will have to be sedated anymore! He has already been sedated 7 times. This will be his 8th time.
Eli is doing well, really testing me these days! I feel like I don't get enough time with him. As things settle down I think the more attention will be spend less on doctors visits and more with my kids! I would like to start going out side more. We have to go outside more around 4:00pm so that there is shade for Alex's eyes! Since it stays sunning longer this is going to be a good thing! It's still difficult taking him out during the mid day. I do get to take both kids on walks because of the shaded stroller!
I've got to tell you a funny story about Eli. I was driving to Jason's cousins house and on the way we saw Firemen. They had boots in their hands and they were collecting money for a cause. Eli started asking me all these questions. In the end, I said it was a very kind thing for these firemen to do this. I think it is a very good thing! His reply was " If you think so mommy!"
I don't know where that came from! Sometimes I can't tell if he is 3 or 13.
Enjoy the pictures and video!!
