Half a year?!
It's hard to believe that our little man is six months old today! (Well, technically 4 months adjusted, but he's been 'out and about' for 6) He is *definitely* not the same boy who entered the world so horribly ill six months ago and we are thankful for every day. His latest milestones include realizing he has a tongue, a voice and the drooly beginnings of teething! The other night he spent a good half hour shrieking just for the sake of shrieking. He wasn't upset or anything, he just felt like squealing! Needless to say, for parents who witnessed their preemie screaming at the top of his lungs in the NICU, but weren't able to hear a sound because of the tubes down his throat... well, the screams now are like music to our ears. (Ask us again about this a few months down the road- haha!) The other biggie is that yesterday during physical therapy he rolled over by himself 5x on his own! His therapist says he is right on schedule for his adjusted age, so we're thrilled. Every day is a new adventure with him and we're so blessed for his improved health!
