Once again I am late with Owen’s monthly post. Maybe one of these days I’ll actually get it posted on time
It’s been a wild month around here, and it’s probably going to stay that way for a bit (especially because we are going into busy portrait season!). I think our little chunk grows every stinkin’ day. He is getting so big so very fast! He’s getting to that precious stage where he loves to play, and it’s so precious to watch him starting to interact with everyone more. He also recently decided he doesn’t really like laying down/reclining that often anymore, he’d much rather be sitting up (he can almost sit up on his own already, and sometimes does for a short period if he is sitting somewhere he can easily lean forward and then rest again.
This month he figured out kisses, and he is all about them. He cracks me up because he looks like a baby bird trying to tell it’s mom it needs a worm every time he wants a kiss (he definitely looks like he’s about to eat your face but he never actually tries 😉 ), and one kiss is usually followed by about 50 more. He smiles more than any baby I’ve ever seen (to my recollection) and is just a pretty chill happy little man in general (although we have had more cranky days lately…not sure if he’s having another growth spurt or already working on a tooth
Owen had his initial consult for his Hemangioma. It turned out to be a bit more complicated than we previously suspected, and they decided there was a need to start treating it pretty aggressively. Because of the location and size there is concern that it could start to cause structural damage to the bones in his forehead/brow, and could also potentially lead to issues with his vision. He is currently on a more mild treatment at home, but he will be going in next week to start in office treatments as well to try to really get on top of things. In addition to that he has to have a rather extensive number of test to ensure that this isn’t indicative of a more serious, internal, problem. We are very hopeful that is not that case as he appears to be otherwise healthy, but the doctors don’t want to take any chances. That being said prayers are greatly appreciated for those of you who would like to keep him in your prayers.
All in all things are going great, and we are loving life with two boys! I didn’t get any pictures of the boys together this month outside of cell phone pics (I know it’s terrible), so hopefully next month I’ll get to share some of William as well.
