Great News!

Henry had his hematology appointment on Monday and we got great news: Henry's platelets are again normal!! Next appointment is in 3 months and if that's normal, we are in the clear and no longer have to get his blood checked frequently! With his clothes on, he weighed a whopping 17.5 lbs and is approaching 27 inches in length!! His hematologist couldn't believe he's already crawling around the house and he even waved bye to her...that was a first!! She even tried it again to make sure and yes, he waved back!! He was a trooper for his appointment and didn't even cry when they took his blood!

Another first, we are on a guest pass at our gym just to try it out and they have a childcare center while you workout! Under 12 months of age, you're allotted 1 1/2 hours of included childcare!! So I've never left him with 'random' people, we've only left him with a babysitter that we interviewed prior. (side note: this is where my job gets in the way of everyday life, I see the worse case scenarios which then makes it harder to deal with leaving him with someone else) Anyway, Saturday we left him there for like 40 minutes while we worked out. Today I did a class with one of my neighbors, and he was down there for over an hour and obviously was fine! Me on the other hand can barely walk from that workout!

It amazes me how quickly he's growing up...and also makes me sad!! It's so fun to see learn everything, but in another way I wish he could stay little forever!

It's been pretty nice out lately, so we've been doing picnics outdoors and Henry loves it!! Henry's recent love is, basketball, football, doesn't matter! We can roll the ball back and forth forever it seems!

We were on a roll with cute photos, until I turned away for a minute, looked back and somehow this little guy got my gatorade top off and he had purple all down the front on him...and he was licking his lips :)

Being a mommy is awesome...I wouldn't trade it in for anything!


  1. Congrats! I'm so glad to hear he's doing better. Miss you guys. Can't wait to see you in a few months! Give Baby Henry a wave from me, So cute.

  2. I am glad he is doing so well he is such a cutie!! I too love being a mommy - there is nothing better in the whole entire world I love it is better than I ever thought possible.
