We headed to grandma and grandpa S’s Saturday night after daddy got home from work and didn’t end up getting there until after midnight. A had finally passed out about a half hour before getting there and when I took him out of his car seat and put him on the bed inside he didn’t even budge…
Sunday morning…the day of the bridal shower. Daddy went golfing with the guys and A stayed with the girls to open gifts and have fun! (Notice his shirt?)
Liam smiling for the camera…
Aunt Shorty taking a nap with A. He had kind of a rough day on Sunday which put a damper on my day for sure. He has been off for about a week but Sunday he was just NOT happy. A ton of times going off colour and just fussy.
Daddy and I got SO much more great stuff and it was great to have so many people that we care about there to celebrate our upcoming day with us!!!
Wes…an amazing kid!!! I have said it before, but he is what ALL kids need to be like. If everyone was like him then kids like A wouldn’t have to worry about trying to fit into this world because it wouldn’t be an issue. He is SO great with him and the best part of it, is that it doesn’t even matter that A is different!
We came home on Monday night pretty late but the car ride home was good and A was a good boy.
Last night we took A to the fireworks for Canada Day. He was very unhappy and I was ready to pack up and leave because he was so upset and going off colour so much but daddy took him and walked around until it was dark enough for the fireworks. We met up with Shelly who is A’s worker in the summer and her boyfriend Jeremy and their two kids.
As soon as the fireworks came on Ashton was is awe and wouldn’t look away!
Well this weekend was very busy but VERY fun!!! On Friday night we had our stag and doe which went amazing!!! We made a TON more money than we even thought which will really help us out around here. The turnout was great and everyone had a good time. Here are some pics from Friday night…
My bridal shower was on Sunday at my mom and dads place. There was so many people and so many great gifts!!!! I don’t have any pics yet uploaded from then so I will post those in a couple of days.
I had a nice surprise visit today from my friend Vickie and her two daughters Sophia and the new baby Ava. Hopefully we can get together with all three soon…been SO long since we have seen Alina!!!
I’ll tell you, I could not get over how small Ava was and she is about 12lbs!!!! I don’t even remember A being that little. He wasn’t too impressed with mommy holding a baby. And when Ava cried there were a few pouts. He better get used to it because hopefully one day he will get to be a big brother!!!
Well the weekend is at the end and I am exhausted! On Friday I took A to Olivia & Avery’s for a long overdue playdate. The girls are doing amazing and I was very impressed with how well they were speaking and behaving! I have some pictures but for some reason blogger is not working properly to post pics so they will have to wait until it is up and running again!
Friday night I also went and met with a husband and wife photographer team. I really liked their work and the fact that there would be two people doing photos. I cannot believe how many photographers there are around and I don’t know how anyone can make a final decision on who they would like there!
Today I went to a bridal show here in Guelph with my mom and cousin Nicole. I was pretty impressed with what I saw and I think that it helped me make a few more decisions for the big day. I am pretty sure I have decided on a photographer and I know one place that I WON’T be getting a cake from. haha it wasn’t very good. Being there really made it FEEL more real and I can’t wait until the day is here!
It was two months ago today that A had his implant activated. Wow I cannot believe how fast time goes. He has done amazing with the implant so far and I am so happy that I made the decision to have the surgery and give him such a precious gift. Things I have noticed already with the implant are:
1. Turns to toys when they are activated.
2. Recognition of my voice and his daddy’s.
3. Acting scared of certain toys/noises.
4. Anticipation of the implant being turned on in the morning.
5. Knows his train, knocking on the door, popping sound with your mouth, clicking of the tongue, the dog barking and a couple other SPECIFIC toys.
6. Much more vocal at times.
7. Taking turns making sounds.
What I am currently working on with him:
1. Name calling to learn “A”
2. Having two animals in front of him, making the sound for one and have him look at the correct one.
3. Excitement to new sounds.
4. Of course mamamama…hasn’t worked YET!
So in the two months you can see how well he has done. That’s my boy. My amazing little boy.
