A lot has happened over the past few days that I haven't had time to post. Let's see if I can remember it all...
On Tuesday night Brady rolled over to his stomach - this time it was seen by a REAL person! (Brady has rolled over two other times but not in front of anyone.) Tom was lucky enough to see this. He rolled over, then laid there and went to sleep. (above) What a man!
Brady has been growing and maturing in all aspects. He has constantly more eye contact, and his 3-6 month clothes are getting a little tight in the length. He seems to grasp things more, and definitely moving around a lot as well.
We went to the Opthamologist yesterday, as was requested by his geneticist that he see one before he turned one. His eyes also turn in sometimes as well, so I was very excited to go to see if he had trouble seeing or what was up. His eyes have gotten better over time, though; since he has been focusing more on things I am noticing his eye turning in a little less. The doctor has suggested to patch his left eye an hour a day to strengthen his right eye. We'll go back in eight weeks to see if this has helped. He may need glasses at some point, and although having glasses is common with William's, my side of the family is also sight-challenged! We also had a blood draw to check his calcium levels while we were at the hospital. After, my mother, Michael, Brady and I hit the Country Buffet restaurant... Michael likes to wait on us. It's great, my mother and I can talk and tell Michael to get us a Pepsi, chips, or whatever! I highly recommend it if you have an eight-year-old.
And to top off the day... we went to Bon Jovi with Nickelback opening. It was a fabulous time! I did not tease my hair big as I threatened to do, but there were definitely some '80s songs blasting through. (Thanks Mich and Sam for a great time!)
