Again, I started this post last week I think which was still late, but these are all pictures over the last month or so. We stay busy!!
Here we are playing a game and Brooks was hanging out watching:)
Oh and playing-he's the big boy now!
Here is Brennan on his last day of 2nd grade! I can't believe he will be moving out of our districts Primary Center into the big kid school...sigh.
Daddy and Brennan love playing basketball and Brooks like to cheer them on:)
We found a baby bird nest in a tree in our front yard. There was one last year so I decided to check it out and there they were!
This was only 6 days later-they grew so fast! The next time we checked they had flown away! That poor mama bird-and I'm struggling with how fast my babies are growing!
Brooks and paw paw
My sleeping angel♥
Brooks has been getting physical therapy at home once a week for a few weeks now. He had a crew of people come-physical therapy, occupational therapy, developmental therapy and a coordinator to discuss what all he needed. These gals don't mess around! Early Intervention Program has been amazing from day 1! When I first met with the coordinator I got to pick all of his therapists from a binder. It's hard to decide without meeting them, but I chose ones that had experience with NICU babies and sensory development because those are Brooks' main concerns. He had a 50% delay in PT, a 75% delay in OT and 25% delay for development and that was all based on his corrected age. We all decided that we would just focus on physical therapy because they felt his OT delay would improve with physical therapy. So we chose Miss Patty and she has been so wonderful! She has personal experience with sensory issues so she has helped give other ideas about eating and sleeping and she has given us good exercises to use in our daily routine for his physical development.
He wasn't so sure of Miss Patty on her first visit, but he warmed up quick and she makes it fun and she is really in tune to his sensitivities:)
This is his wedge for tummy time. He isn't laying completely flat so he doesn't mind tummy time as much. He started out at a few minutes and now he is at 10 minutes! Miss Patty is really happy with his progress and so am I:)
The bond between these 2 grows stronger every day. Brennan loves to entertain Brooks and he loves playing with him! I think he is feeling more comfortable now that the colds are gone and Brooks is bigger.
Brooks is SO happy and playful! His colic is so much better. He does have some particulars that he need to comfort him, but as long as you know what they are-he is a really happy and content baby.
He has some funny little faces too!
We went to a picnic at my mom's work a couple of weeks ago. It was a lot fun!
They had this fun battle war bouncy thing.
Terrible pic of me but Brooks' face ha!
A girl I work with knows the sweet spot to this guys heart:)
Sometimes we hang out in the yard..naked for the baby of course:)
2 little roses from my rose bush that were right next to each other, reminded me of Reese and Scotlyn.
Brooks got a fan for his stroller. He is such a hot little baby that I knew this would come in handy this summer! It really does cool it off in there and he loves it!
Bren and I go for bike rides at the trail near our house. It's so nice and relaxing. Brennan got a bigger bike for his birthday so he loves riding it!
We have also been walking over to our neighbors house to feed their chickens. Brooks loves riding in the carrier
Mostly, I cannot get enough of these two! I so enjoy our time together! Which is why I have a hard time getting on here to post! And why this post is super random!:)
