We Miss Nana!

My mom, a.k.a Nana, has been here for a few days this week. She flew out today and we miss her already. We have loved the extra help and hate that my parents live so far away.

It has been a beautiful week in NC. We've had such pretty spring days. Too bad it is going to get a little cooler this weekend.

We had a good week. Lindy had occupational therapy on Monday and she did well. The therapist definitely had her tracking a toy from side to side, so that was exciting to see.

Lindy had her follow-up eye exam on Wednesday. Her eyes seem to have gotten worse. She definitely followed a little toy for the ophthalmologist, which he seemed very pleased with. We have gone ahead and ordered her glasses. It will take 3-6 weeks for them to come in. They will look like this:
We ordered her the light pink version though. Can you imagine my little girl in those glasses? I can't!! Should be interesting trying to keep them on her face! I can't wait to see how she acts with the glasses on. Although her prescription seems to have gotten worse, we feel she is seeing so much better. She seems to look around so much more and can focus on toys and our faces now.

Will had his last Synagis (for RSV) shot on Thursday. He cried less this time than last month. We saw another doctor and he checked out his breathing issues again. I put him on his stomach and let him get a good listen to the wheezing noise we hear. He definitely heard it as well. He couldn't find anything wrong though. He said to watch it and if it gets worse they can refer us to an ear, nose, and throat doctor who can check out his airway. He does not make the noise when he is at rest which is comforting to me; just when he gets worked up and is exerting energy.

Not too much other exciting news this week. We have raised our March for Babies goal again as we have received more donations!! We are so thankful that our friends and family have supported us in our cause. Unfortunately we had to deal with extreme prematurity and infant death. We want to do our small part to help prevent others from having to deal with the same issues. We need to thank:

Ken and Carolyn
Myra and Brian
Harold and Wilma
Greg and Sloan
Yun Lan and Steve
Bob and Lib
Larry and Linda

And finally, some recent pictures for your viewing pleasure.

This has become one of my favorite pictures of Lindy. She just looks so cute in her dress and shoes and the smile is one of the most precious things in the world to me!

The "Stud Muffin" Get it????

The shirt says it all.

Is this not a darn fine looking boy? He's gorgeous!

A few more fun shots with Nana. Lindy sure is checking her out!
Nana and Will spent a good bit of time talking about the important things in life. Milk, poopy diapers, and the 2008 presidential election. Nana was saying, "Will, you are crazy if you think Hillary will get the nomination."

Have a great weekend!
