Carsyn turns 17 Months Old today. Almost a year and a half. I can not believe how fast time is flying. Carsyn is getting bigger but still not gaining any weight so we are going to see an endocrinologist at Duke on Friday. I am anxious to see if they can do any more test since his thyroid and bone growth came back normal. I am not sure what they are going to do but please pray that it is a productive appointment since it is over 3 hours away. We will be getting up bright and early!
He has started making more sounds. I have heard mama, dada, and something that sounds like ball. He loves saying yum, yum, yum while eating. He also has started saying up after we repeat it several times in speech therapy. He has not said anything with purpose yet. I can not wait for him to call for me. You know it is funny, you wait and wait for them to talk but then Dustyn calls for me 50 million times a day and you are like why did I want him to talk. ha ha. Just kidding but you know what I mean. He is such a sweet loving boy. He has started kissing on command. It is so adorable and rewarding.
We had been told that he would need that pyogenic granuloma surgically removed from his nose but that went away on its own. It has stayed away. Thanks for all your prayers. I am so happy. I got him this baby sock monkey from Target on Sunday. He LOVES it. We are getting our family photos taken on Saturday by Susan. I can not wait!!
You can see Dustyn at 17 Months. I love looking back but it also makes me a little sad. Just shows how truly different they are. Having Carsyn has truly made me a better person. He has taught me to enjoy the little things. I love him so much and I can’t imagine my life without him. Yes it is hard doing therapy three times a week, doing all the stretches and exercises with him, on top of being the best mom I can be to Dustyn and a mediocre wife to Kenny. When I see his smile and hear his laugh it makes it ALL worth it. I feel blessed that God picked me to be Carsyn’s mom. I am so grateful to have him in my life.
