Only 2 weeks until casting!

Wyatt's appointment with Dr. B went well this morning. No more ear infections! Although, he does still have some major congestion going on. And just in case you are curious Wyatt now weighs in at a whopping 19 lbs 12 oz! His PT session was pretty much the same as the past weeks. Wyatt's feet are stretching really well and he has lots of mobility. The problem is he won't stretch and move them himself. He always keeps them in the dorsiflex positioning. That is what he has always known so it must be comfortable for him. The casts will help reset his muscle memory so he can relax his feet in a more normal position.

Wyatt is about *this* close to crawling too! He gets up on all fours, rocks, and then he crosses his legs at the last moment so he can't move forward. Silly boy! I don't know if he will get it figured out before his casts go on or not. No matter, he can get to wherever he wants to be with his rolling and pivoting. He is one determined baby. We almost have two teeth as well! I can see the bottom ones just under the gums. It is like he just needs to bite really hard on something and they will pop right through. Although, I am a bit nervous how his getting teeth will change our nursing relationship. We have all day tomorrow off as a family with no appointments! I am so excited. Fingers crossed for good weather.

Happy Easter

Wyatt found an egg!
Wyatt and Bella going for a ride.

Yah....I know, it is a little late. Better that than never, right!? Wyatt is sick again with a cough and ear infections. That boy is sick more than he is healthy :( We still had a fun Easter. Wyatt enjoyed watching his big sister hunt for eggs and he even grabbed a few for himself. Of course he didn't care about the treats inside, he just wanted to suck on the plastic egg! Bella better get ready for some competition next year!

On the CVT front, I get more and more nervous the closer we get to the 25th. I am sure everything will go just fine and Wyatt will get used to having casts, but I am a Mom so I will worry. We have been looking in to having his surgery done at the Shriner's hospital in Salt Lake City. I would rather have it done here, I am just not sure we can afford it. Luckily friends have put us in contact with someone who can assist us with the application process. I will have to talk more about it with Dr. S at our next appointment.

Sorry this is so short and sweet. We have a big day tomorrow with doctor's appointments. Wyatt has a follow up with his pediatrician in the morning for his ears and we have physical therapy in the
Enjoying his 1st Easter!
afternoon. Goodnight all!
