Reed is doing great this week with his eye sight. Ryan and I went to the lake this past weekend with friends and left the boys with my parents. I was feeling pretty discouraged on Friday before we left because I felt that Reed was not doing well with his eyes. When we got back on Sunday, I was amazed at the improvement he had made.
I don't know how many of you have had that feeling of constant worry but it was beginning to consume me. No matter how much I prayed, I couldn't help but worry about Reed never being able to fully see. Ryan always would tell me that "when you worry, just pray." This definitely has led to many prayers! It is the best feeling in the world for your child to look at you and smile back at you. God has definitely taught us to be appreciative of the "little" things that we are so truly blessed with. I hope that as time goes on that I never forget to appreciate those little things that I take for granted. Be thankful in all circumstances and look for the good!!!
Reed is beginning to love bath time. He now likes to give me a bath too with his splashes.
Yes, his tube is still in. I did have to take it out today since it needs to be changed but took that opportunity to take pictures. Please pray that Reed will begin to start taking his full bottles again without a fight from him. He is a feisty little thing and I think that he might be a little stubborn. I am not for sure if he gets that from me or Ryan!
Even though Braden's face doesn't show it, he loves his bouncy swing. He is still not strong enough to bounce like crazy on it but he enjoys spinning in it. My dad hooked the swing up in a tree for him, and he loved it! I think that he liked the feel of the monkey grass on his feet. My boys definitely love the outside.
Since it has been raining all the time and a little chilly outside today, the boys have been busy playing inside. They love their chocolate bunnies that Tina gave them. I think this may be what they become attached to. I might need to go buy a couple more just in case!
Thank you again for all of your prayers because that is what has and is getting us through these bumps in the road!
So, do they look anything alike? We get comments all the time that they look alike or they don't look alike. It is so funny who people say that each of them look like too because Ryan and I don't seem to see either one of us in Braden or Reed.
I am pretty sure that Braden's eyes will stay blue but we are not for sure about Reed's eyes.
I know that Reed's eyes look brown in this picture but they are actually dark blue. Who knows what they will end up being! Anyone know when they quit changing colors?
My precious little boys!
