"All your children shall be taught by the Lord,and great shall be the peace of your children." Isaiah 54:13
Kyle turned 11 months old yesterday! It is hard to imagine that our little guy will be one next month. We have debated on what to do for his birthday, as we obviously want to celebrate the occasion, but a big first birthday party just doesn't seem right for him at this point. Plus, parties in Ohio are not as fun in February...too cold! So, we have decided that we are going to have a big bash for Kyle in June when it has been one year since he was released from the hospital and was able to come home to Ohio. As for his actual birthday next month, we are going to celebrate the occasion in Orlando, Florida. I miss Florida so much, especially all the amazing people we met. We already have plans to visit the hospital with Breanne and Rylee, and while we are in Florida, Kyle even gets to go to Rylee's 1st birthday party! I am so excited!!!
Kyle is growing up and developing very well. He can now sit unassisted and play with his toys. While sitting, he can lean all the way forward and twist to either side to pick up toys without falling over. While he is not crawling yet, he pivots around in circles to get to different toys. It'll be only a matter of time before he's on the move. Kyle is very vocal, though not yet talking. (Although Daddy swears he heard Kyle say Da-Da yesterday!) Kyle babbles and grunts to us to get our attention. Sometimes during these "conversations" he gets a real serious look on his face like he's telling a very important story.
Last week Kyle had his monthly shot for RSV. At the appointment, he weighed in at 14 lbs. 14 oz, which means he is probably 15 pounds now. He's roughly in the 5th percentile for weight, even for his adjusted age of 7 months. The doctor isn't worried because he is growing proportionately and consistently. He's just a little peanut still.
Thanks for checking in on us...
Jennifer, Joe, Madison and Kyle
