Today my windows are open. It's about 71 degrees outside and the breeze is just wonderful. I absolutely love the days that it's not to hot nor to cold to enjoy my windows open. I think I may just sit out on the deck and read - that is IF my son will take a nap for longer than 15 minutes. :)
Our family is getting back into the swing of things. Routine is pretty important with a house full of so many people. School has been in session for a week and soccer is in full swing. Back to getting up early, helping with homework, making after-school snacks, getting kids back and forth from soccer practice, attending school meetings, packing lunches and getting kids to bed early. Ahhh....the beginnings of fall...lol
And of course, it has begun. Three (Nick, Jim and I) and possibly by the end of today - five (Nicholas woke up with a sore throat and Andrew is starting to cough) of us are now sick. Bronchitis, sinusitis, sore throats, coughs. Yep, "school" season has officially started.
Yesterday morning I received an email from a mom who's son was diagnosed with sagittal cranio. Her son will be having surgery sometime this month. She had a few questions about the surgery, what to expect and etc. She wondered what Andrew's scar looked like now so I snapped a couple of quick photos for her. I thought I'd post one here for those of you who haven't seen him lately. Next week it will be 2 months since he had his surgery. He is doing just wonderfully. He had his 6 month check-up on Tuesday and weighs in at 18.33 pounds (60th percentile) and is 27 1/4 inches long (73rd percentile). What a big guy he is. He is sitting up by himself now and just learning to catch himself when he starts to wobble. He is sooooo close to crawling (or at least scooting). Unbelievable.
