Jonah is eating his lunch by mouth most days, but is still taking breakfast and dinner by tube. We will soon be mixing in some textures and mashable foods (beans, bananas), along with his purees. He can now take steps when being held by only one wrist and can walk by himself behind a push toy. He can now say: bye-bye, night-night, Daddy, ten, uh-oh, yay, go (for Diego), up, down, rock-rock, hey, walk, kitty, Deac, Granny (Matt's mom), ball, Pop (my dad), shoe, toes, bubbles, choo-choo, and car. He can do animal sounds for the cow, bear, lion, monkey, kitty, and dog. He also does the cutest version of cockadoodledoo there ever was. There may be others but I tend not to remember things past 9 pm (or ever, really).
He woke up sounding really croupy again this morning. He was sounding better as the day went on though so I haven't given him any steroids. I did, however, take him to the doctor so they could listen to him, where he proceeded to get really upset and vomit all over himself and me. He had a change of clothes. I didn't. So I rewarded my vomit-covered self with a Sonic chocolate milkshake.
These photos are from Halloween weekend. We went down to Matt's parents for a get together they hosted for their Sunday School class. They have encouraged and helped us so much. It was so great to see them all and let them hang out with (a slightly fussy) Jonah.
Well, that's it for me tonight. I'm going to try to catch up on Grey's, and then I'm off to bed. Hope everyone is having a nice week.
