Gavin started his first season of t-ball which has been really fun to watch- go cubs!
He also officially started preschool this week, and loves it! I had a hard time leaving him the first day but he did great.One of my favorite things we did as a family last month was our trip down to Hood River, OR. Gavin's birthday is this week and he has a passion for anything on wheels- especially trains. So as part of his b-day we took a trip down to Oregon to ride the Mt. Hood railroad. None of us had ever been on a real train, and I think Trent and I enjoyed it as much as the kids! We got to ride for an hour to a little fruit farming town, get off to explore for half and hour, then ride back. In the fall they have a harvest train where they take you to a pumpkin patch to get a pumpkin then load it back on the train for the trip back. In the winter they have a similiar x-mas tree trip and also the Polar Express! I think we'll be headed back to Hood River soon!
At the end of July Teag officially graduated from physical therapy! She's walking,climbing and running everywhere and its amazing- we're so proud of her! We still go to OT once a week for feeding therapy- which remains our biggest issue. Teag will be 18 months on the 21st and still weighs around 18 1/2 lbs...
Recently I noticed that her teeth, mainly her front tooth has been sensitive and causing her pain. I'm starting to wonder if this is why she has such a hard time eating. Now that she's talking so much more, she's started to touch her front tooth and say "tooooof!" in a sad voice. One of her front teeth came in discolored and missing the enamel and my dentist told me it was probably from one of the meds she was given in the NICU... He dismissed it as minor and said that her permanent teeth should be fine. But now that she's uncomfortable I made her an appt. for tommorrow morning with a local pediatric dentist who can hopefully help her!
Teag had a cardiology appt in August and everything went well. No echo, ekg or even meds adjusting which made me a little uneasy but they don't want to see her again until Nov!
We have a busy week ahead with more appts. and a construction party for a special boy! Thank you for checking in on us after we checked out for so long!
