My happy boy :)
He started saying "ah-goo" and so now we are trying to teach him G words: God, gospel, glory, grace...If you listen reeeaaalllly hard and suspend disbelief, he's totally got them down! He's underneath his tent in this picture. Ed put a blanket over his face one morning while I was changing his diaper to keep the bright light out of his eyes. He loved it! He started cooing at it and trying to eat it. Now I put it over him whenever I change him. His cousin Jacob, who is almost two, wouldn't let anyone change his diaper when he was younger unless he had a diaper on his head. LOL. I guess it runs in the family.
As you can see he's all better now, just barely coughing every now and then; thanks for your prayers. Our latest trial is that my milk production went down when he was sick and now he's not getting enough to eat, according to the doctors. In my opinion, he's fine and certainly not underweight, although he does like to eat whenever he can. They're having me encourage him to eat more often which he's happy to do. If I thought I spent all my time nursing before, whoo! It's nothing compared to now!
