1 Year Ago

1 year ago this month we went from being parents of a 12 year to a teenager and found out we would be have a new addition to our family. Who knew so much could change in just a year.

Brandon turned 14 on the 20th. He is such a awesome kid. I am so blessed to have him and Roby in my life. I meet Roby 10 years ago when Brandon was 4 I wish I had pictures of him back then on the computer for you guys. He was so adorable you just wanted to put him on a shelf like a little doll. It seems so crazy to me that he is 14 now and only has 5 more years of school. 5 years may seem like a lot if the past 10 years had not gone by so fast. I was so scared wondering if I could be a step-mom for the next 14 years and now we are almost done with one and starting all over again with another. He is such a good kid and a great big brother to Bella. She abores him when he walks in the room she cant take her eyes off of him. And don't tell his friends he looks at her the same way.

For his birthday we took him to eat Sushi. Yummy.

Bella is doing great. We had another doctor visit on Friday and they seemed very pleased with her weight gain. So much we get to wait 4 weeks till the next aptointment. She is still on the oxygen they are just taken that slow and letting her go at her own speed. She had her other half of her flu shot on friday. Will get her RSV shot at her next apt but no other shots for a while other than the RSV each month. I am so excited. She has a swallow test the first week of November and if all goes well with that she gets to start on cerel. She is already watch everything we eat. And I have tried cereal on her a few times and last week when I tired it she finished the bowl I made her. So I think she is more than ready. They just want to make sure no problem with the swallowing. She weight 11 lbs 2.2 oz. She is rolling over from her tummy to her back. Has not got the hang of rolling from her back to her tummy but tries really hard. She is playing so much more with her toys and loves to sit up in her boombo chair and watch everything. She will meet also at the first of November with ECI (Early Child Development program) to make sure she is develope at a good pace and not showing any signs of developmentaly problems. They evaulate at her corrected age not her birth age. Right now she seems to be running on track with her corrected age but they will be able to see if she is doing anything that could cause a delay.

Her only problem is she won't be still! Don't blink or Brandon will be walking across that high school stage!
