we have had a lot going on and most of it has been good or has the potential to be good. my sister gave ryder a silk worm and that thing was clearly a survivor. after much man handling, that thing still made a cocoon and even turned into a moth. this is a small miracle for our family. please remember the fish saga. i am not sure i mentioned it, but the beta died too!
ryder graduated to a big boy bed! he LOVES it and his new bedding(thanks auntie!).
isaac and ryder continue to share a room and probably will for the rest of their years with us. i can't imagine them not together.
the boys have had a few friends come to play and have loved showing off their "man cave" and backyard.
this character has also decided that he can feed himself. don't even think of helping! he has also mastered putting on a good pair of crocs. he won't let me help, no matter how frustrated he gets.
we found out yesterday that isaac will go in for his lip and nose repair on october 23rd. as a mom, i have this false sense of control that is so hard to let go of! if you think of us, please pray that we stay healthy and free of sickness. isaac has to be totally well to keep his surgery appointment. i am sure there will be plenty of tears from me as i prepare to send my sweet boy back into surgery. i am hoping there's plenty of laughter to accompany the tears. we'll keep you posted.
for now, we are loving our new place! i am so grateful we have the space and backyard as we enter into a tough couple of months. thank you to all who have helped make this our reality! we are so grateful!
