Sweet child of mine

"This blog is all about me"
I think at last I've captured how Reu really looks.


I have photographed him every day of his life bar 3 days when Jason did the honours, as part of a year's project to see how my baby grows and develops, how those imperceptible changes each day create such a great change over a year. The 6 month project will be up here soon.

wow, he is really looking great these days... How is the hearing exam coming? I know you asked about a feeding comparison before with our Lucas; we would recommend the continousous feed at night for 10 hours on a pump for sure when you all go "H"! Lucas sleeps all night except for maybe waking up "happy" and gently going back to sleep on his own. Take care... ...

I rejoice so completely at how beautiful Reuben is, and how astoundingly healthy, sturdy and resplendently abundant his energy radiates in every photo. Who would have known that the trach (and obviously heart repair)would give Reuben the freedom to be fully alive so completely? And I can't help but notice how lovely and dry his trach is. I suppose that is the difference between needing a trach as a primary airway and needing one for profound aspiration (Keith). Cheers and celebrations for you three! Wonderful! I love starting another day hugging myself in celebration of you all. oxo,y

(also, I am admiring how nicely Reuben's hands are at midline, and how bright and brilliant his eyes are. his whole body is quivering with alertness. he is simply drinking it all in, more than ready to make up for time lost, and thank his lucky stars you and Jason are right there eager to give it all to him!) :o)

Reuben is simply beautiful! I love seeing his sweet pictures. I am sure it is difficult to quit kissing on him long enough to take his pictures.
