Light at the End of the Tunnel

Life is good. I just love my little guy. He is a handful, much more than what I expected him to be. I can tell he is going to keep us on our toes. I also hope not too many emergency room visits. He is fearless and I hope he doesn't break anything in his escapades.

I wish we could go adopt another baby. shhh....
Bill would kill me if I brought that up.
We are done but still a little girl would be nice......

I have some updated pictures I will post later tonight!

First He blows, Now He Sucks!

I'm talking about a straw.
We found out today that the little one can suck liquid up a straw. Not perfect but it is start. He still thinks he needs to chew on things he drinks because that is the way he has gotten things out of bottles and sippy cups.
I'm amazed at his progress...blowing and now sucking...all milestones in the cleft palate world. I'm not sure if he nows how he is doing it but it is still progress.

We are also getting some words from him that I can understand. You might not know what he is saying but we now can say...

Up - sounds like uuuhhhhp (very little p action)
Nigh Nigh - for night night
it - for sit
