Lots of Changes

Last night at around 10:30 I heard Robert kind of crying in his crib.  I knew he had been asleep for a while so I went to check on him.  I don’t know what was wrong but I picked him up, changed his diaper, and then rocked him for a few minutes.  I started to stand up to put him back in the crib and Robert sat up and whispered, “Ready to go back in da crib.”  I said okay and walked him over to the crib.  He was mumbling something that I couldn’t understand until the very end.  “Worship God.  Dat be exciting!”  I hugged him close and told him I loved him.  He hugged me back and said, “love you too momma.”  He holds my heart in his hands.  I have written before about Robert telling me that God has healed his heart.  Lately he has added something to that.  “Momma, God heal heart.  Thank you, God.”  Robert is still doing very well after the surgery.  His next cardiologist appointment is at the end of July and we look forward to hearing about Robert’s progress.  Provided everything looks good, we should be able to start weaning Robert off of his medication which will be great.

Alex is growing and learning so much.  We pray at mealtimes and before putting him to bed and he sits quietly until the Amen.  Then he says amen with us.  He says thank you is his own way.  He loves to throw away his diapers and blow on his brother’s belly.  He tickles Robert and the two boys generally play very well together.  He is learning how to feed himself with a fork and he insists on “helping” me when I try to feed him with a spoon.  Alex is a very happy, loving baby.  He loves being held and giving kisses.  He loves being read to, and some of his favorite books are “Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?”, “Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What Do You Hear?”, “Green Eggs and Ham”, and “Curious George and the Rocket”.

With baby number 3 on the way, we are looking forward to making some changes around here!  We need to get Robert in a big boy bed and get  him fully potty trained, and we need to get Robert and Alex sharing a room.  We don’t know when we will be able to purchase a house so I am trying to make plans with what we have right now.  If those plans have to change because we find a house, great!  Tomorrow I will officially be in the 2nd trimester.  This pregnancy is moving fast and Christopher and I look forward to meeting our new little blessing in time for Christmas.
