Colton update

Last Friday Colton spent the night at Primary Children's having continuous monitoring done in the sleep lab since his problems mainly happen after he has been asleep for a while. He didn't sleep well between the old metal crib that made a ton of noise every time he moved, the 30 plus wires attached to him and not being in his own bed. Matt stayed with him the whole night and I took Madison and her friend Grace to see the new Ice Age movie. Even though it was so cute watching the girls giggle and interact with the movie, I could not stop thinking about my poor little guy in a strange place. It helped to know that he was with his daddy. After the movie was over I could not sleep. Thank goodness for Facebook. :) Madison had a hard time not having her baby and daddy at home. She cried most of the night asking if the doctors were going to hurt her baby. Matt sent a picture of him playing in the bed. I think that helped reassure her that he was just fine. Moments later I found her fast asleep in my bed.

Today we got the results from the doctor, he said that although he is improving some he wants Colton to be put back on oxygen while he is sleeping and keep the monitors on him and run the tests again in four to six months. So for a problem that we were told would go away by the time he was four months old seems to be something that possibly might never go away, only time will tell.

Bouncing baby boy

Colton loves his bouncer that Mary let us borrow, thanks again. Here is a short video of him in it, sorry for the poor quality it was a little too dark for the camera.

Colton at 7 months
Weight: 18 LBS. (40% percentile)
Length: 27 inches (50% percentile)
My little guy is such a wonderful addition to our family. It seems like everyday is a new adventure!! In the past couple of weeks he's started to jibber jabber, sit up with help, rolls completely over all by himself, and pushes himself up.
The doc said that Colton should be sitting up all by himself by now. Not the words I wanted to hear. Then he went on to say that he still believes Colton could have had a hypoxic brain injury at birth, but we'll just have to wait and see if he can walk and talk. WOW, it just gets better!!! Finally he won't leave Colton's head alone. He proceeds to tell us that Colton might have craniosynotosis, that means that his scull has fused together to early, leaving nowhere for his brain to grow. My poor baby! The only good news he had for us is that he wants us to take him off the oxygen as a trial to see how he does without it. Sounds a little scary to me, but I have to just trust that the doctor knows best.
On a lighter note...
As I was tucking Madison into bed last night, she looked at me so seriously and said, "mom you aren't allowed to have anymore treats, because your getting to fat. You're going to get so big you're going to blow away!!!" Wow you know it's time for a diet when your 4 yr. old compares you to an air balloon...LOL! No more treats for me!!! :)

The Easter Bunny.....

We took the kids to see the Easter Bunny today and Madison did not seem to be happy about the whole stand next to six foot bunny so we can take your picture idea, we even tried the candy bribe routine but I think she knew she was getting candy no matter what.
