Little Guy and Snort have been struggling with their health lately. Around here, the allergens are bad and that always triggers Snort's asthma. Poor little Snort has been struggling with asthma, pneumonia, and allergies for the past week or two. Little Guy is a wheezy mess, too. That's never a good thing when you're doing all you can just to catch up with the "typical" kids. But, these guys are tough and amazing, and they're keeping up with the best of them.
Little Guy has really learned to jabber away. I imagine he's talking to the angels or trying to tell me what Heaven was like before he came here in a desperate effort not to forget what he experienced before he left the arms of a loving Heavenly Father to come to earth. Either way, he's smiling at something whenever he's awake. He gets his arms and legs flailing all over the place, and just coos and jabbers like it's going out of style. We couldn't be more proud of Little Guy. He's been nothing short of a gift straight from Heaven for us.
Snort is making progress, too. This past week, he's had a language explosion. He says Little Guy's name clear as day while he lovingly strokes Little Guy's head. I'll have to try to make a video of it because it's truly precious. As for his walking, well...I'm convinced that he'll be crawling to Kindergarten someday, but who's really counting? We're just calling ourselves blessed that he's improving in his health and language skills. One thing at a time, right?
