Grayson and I spent the day at the Doctor's office. He was such a trooper! He ultimately has been diagnosed with pnuemonia and bronchiolitus. He was thoughtful and so sweet during our 4 hour visit. We shuffled between radiology and the pediatric office and then finally to the pharmacy. He... Continue reading

Today we received the call, the one we have been waiting for... Grayson no longer qualifies for "services." That is to say that he no longer tests behind developmentally in gross or fine motor skills. He has caught up in these areas and we are so proud. So proud of... Continue reading

Grayson participated in his first 5k race this summer. (It was in early June- yes we are behind in posts again. Oops!) This annual race is one of our favorites- it is the Leadville Fish Hatchery's Annual 5kish. The trail is beautiful and well maintained. I love that the race... Continue reading

Grayson's first trip to the mountains was over Memorial Day weekend. We packed up the car and Gustus and headed North. First stop- Ft. Collins to drop off Gustus with Grandma Sandy. There was far too much water to take Gustus along for the trip. I am so sure he... Continue reading

My first Mother's Day was awesome! Christian snuck out to pick up breakfast in bed per Grayson's request. Unfortunately, the biscuit shop wasn't open, but Starbucks was a good alternative. I also received new kitchen gear- a rolling pin (my first ever), oven mitts and pan holders. I spent the... Continue reading

I lost the cord that connects the camera to the computer, and just found it, and so we are really far behind on our posts. So much to catch up on. This is going to be a long one... This is one of Grayson's last days in his harness! His... Continue reading

We have been having a lot of fun with Grayson over the past couple weeks. We are on a new medicine for his reflux that really seems to be helping (finally!) Grayson is staying awake in longer bouts, he is cooing and smiling all of the time- ok not all... Continue reading

Grayson turns 3 months tomorrow. Holy smokes. While time has flown, it also seems like ages ago that our family was living out of St. Joes with tubes and wires attached all over our tiny baby. He's still in the brace, and has added colic, reflux, and gas to his... Continue reading

We have been all over the place lately. Grayson and I both had a few doctors appointments over the past two weeks. I think we were on the go 6 out of the last 7 days- which is quite a bit for a little guy who is supposed to be... Continue reading

Hip Dsyplasia is one of the things doctors and nurses look for when they perform infant wellness exams. And while hip dsyplasia is not very common (only 0.1% of infants have it), if left untreated it can lead to a lifetime of surgeries, one leg that is shorter than the... Continue reading

Every December my family makes a batch of Christmas cookies and spends the day decorating them. I LOVE this cookie dough more than any other- yes, even chocolate chip cookie dough. As a result, I REALLY look forward to this day. This year, however, we were at the hospital and... Continue reading

I am pleased to say that to the extent possible we have been fairly mobile. We took our first big trip to see Joe and Sandy in Fort Collins. At the time, Grayson was without Pavlik Harness (more to come on that) and really didn't mind being in his car... Continue reading

It is amazing how fast Grayson is growing! We had our first pediatrician visit this week. Grayson is looking good! He continues to need oxygen, which is to be expected and is something he will grow out of as he gets closer to full term. He now weighs 7.4 pounds!... Continue reading

The morning of the 23rd, we met with the Doctors and nurses in the NICU during rounds (as we did every morning) and learned that Grayson was no longer welcome there! He was "welcome", but no longer needed to stay. We couldn't believe it! Everything we had heard previously led... Continue reading
