Update..

Dare I say that everyone is well....don't want to jinx us!  The stomach flu has been in our house 3 times since October and Ethan has caught it every single time.  Luckily he is doing well with not getting a colds this winter, probably due to his monthly RSV shots and daily neb treatments.  I don't even want to think about next year when he won't get the RSV shot....He was hospitalized the 1st two years of his life with RSV in late Spring even though he had the RSV shot so I'm hoping that doesn't repeat itself this year.  We are planning a trip to visit my Grandparents during spring break and am just hoping that we can keep him well!

We are going to meet with a doctor in Chapel Hill on Wednesday.  A genetic doctor at UVA referred us to his doc...she specializes in Storage Diseases and metabolic conditions.

Ethan has done really well this week.  His signing is increasing, he now signs ball, more, car, open, eat and more.  He also says go, mama (not usually in context but I still love to hear it), no, apple (yes he says apple and in context, seems like a hard word to me) and inky (which means binky).  He is also getting stronger and using his walker more and more.  He is also getting into lots of trouble (which is pretty "typical" and OK with me)  This is what happened when I went to switch the laundry out ...2 minutes that is all it took...




This boy loves him some Oreos...

Loved getting caught up with your boy :) So good to see him suing his walker now, he is getting stronger! YAY! For some crazy reason no one suggested a walker for Jack at age 2, when he wasnt walking. He didnt walk for another 6months, that would of been nice for him to have gotten off the ground! LOVE the girls outfits, priceless! Theyre getting so much older now. Sending you all hugs and always prayers for Ethan-
Heidi & Jack.

Awesome! I love it when boys are boys and make messes and eat cookies and have a blast just like everyone else!
