Micah started army crawling today! I thought I was looking forward to the day that he became more mobile but now I am dreading it! It's hard enough to keep up with Noah running around all over the place but now I am to chase after Micah as well! On the other hand it is pretty darn cute and he's so excited to have finally figured it out, he pulls himself forward and then squeals in delight! Hopefully i'll be able to get a video of it soon and then i'll post it on here for all to see!
Micah had his 9 month well baby appointment on Friday. I truly enjoy well baby appointments, I go in there not worrying that they will tell me something else or that we need to run some other test. This appointment did not disappointment me! I found out that Micah is weighing in at 23lbs and 4oz and he is 28 inches long...he is in the 75% for everything! He is developmentally on track! He only had to get one shot! We have been referred to a pediatric optomologist though due to his "horners syndrome" in his left eye. If you remember (or don't that's okay) after Micah got through surgery his eye became droopy and the pupil doesn't react the way it is supposed to. The surgeon said that due to the location of the tumor it is possible that he nicked a nerve while removing it, this nerve controls part of the eye. We were told it should correct itself within three weeks of surgery, well...it hasn't fixed it self so we are off to the oncologist on Friday to check and see if it has affected his eye sight in this eye at all. Otherwise we don't need to return to the pediatrician until November when Micah turns a year!
This coming Friday we have an appointment with the pulmonologist in the morning and then the optomologist in the afternoon. Should be a busy day but we are hoping to find out if Micah is going to do another sleep study any time soon and what else (if any) test this pulmonologist thinks need to be done on Micah (we are praying none and that he says he's gonna grow out of it...that's what we hope at least!). Then the following Wednesday Micah has a follow up with his oncologist where we should find out the results of his next urine test...we pray that the numbers go down into "normal" range instead of "up" as if they begin to climb we may have more testing needed in order to find out what is going on.
Noah is great...busy as always. Nothing really new with him other than he's starting to say a few more words! *FINALLY!
Seth and I are doing great. Seth is super busy of course with vicarage. I am enjoying the weather here in MN and loving the town!!! The boys and I will start some parent/toddler classes twice a week starting in Sept!
