Today was my one year blogiversary. How time flies! When I first started this blog, Ben was only 5 months old and 9 lbs, and had just had his Nissen fundoplication/g-tube surgery. We were still reeling from the shock of having a new baby who had so many medical and developmental issues. I started this blog mainly to keep in touch with friends and extended family. I also hoped it would help me remember to be thankful for all the happy, funny and silly times that we have, even though life is difficult sometimes. I think blogging has definitely helped, and it has been therapeutic for me. Best of all, I have met so many other awesome people who are also sharing their stories online, and that has helped me alot on my journey.
We’ve been busy lately. My Mom is paying us a visit all the way from Trinidad, and the boys have ALL been very excited to have her here. Isaac is thrilled that she enjoys hearing him play his Legend of Zelda piano solos, and Jonny has someone else to bother since Auntie Rhoda isn’t here anymore. And Ben enjoys having someone else to spoil him.
Last weekend we went to the pumpkin patch. The weather was actually not too cold, so Ben didn’t mind at all this year, and actually enjoyed being in the stroller. The older two had a great time (Isaac is still wearing his soccer uniform from the morning’s game).
We did carve the pumpkins, but perhaps we did this a little too early. We had 70 degree weather and rain all week, so I fear the pumpkins will be nothing but mush by the time Halloween rolls around!
