*The house is decorated.....inside and out! Have I mentioned that I LOVE Christmas?
*We are gearing up for the BIG birthday party on Saturday (which reminds me...I still need to order the sub!)
*John's PT is looking into getting him a pony walker.
Life is simply wonderful!

Anyhow, we gave him Motrin along with LOTS of Neosporin and a band-aid on the wound.
He is one BRAVE little man!!!

We received a VERY nice surprise last night.....My sister (n-law) called me to check and see if we received the Texas brisket that my brother sent us (to take to my parents today.) When I went outside to check, guess who was standing there? Uncle Craig and Aunt Alli drove straight through from Austin, Texas to Arizona to surprise us for Thanksgiving. We love you guys and couldn't be more thankful to be spending Thanksgiving with you and the rest of the family.
Definitely the BEST surprise ever and the BEST Thanksgiving too.....all three of them that is:)
I didn't take a lot of pictures today but, here are a few...

John and the Walrus (our FAT cat weighs more than John.)
Practicing walking in his new walker...that I am going to return because it is to low/he is to tall.
John in his new Conductor hat!

I began decorating today and will finish up tomorrow, including the tree and wrapped presents! Now, if it would just cool down a bit.....I have to admit, it felt rather odd decorating the house wearing flip flops and having the AC cranked:)
John even got in the spirit and tried on his new Santa hat...thanks Grams!!!

Here are some pictures....
Reading some books before bed. Lots of lovin from Grandpa! WOW.....we really do have a 2 year old (almost.)

Not to much to report on the little man.....but, we'll give it a try!
We went to GI today.....his current weight is, 22.12 and length is, 32 inches. GI was not pleased with his weight....but, then again, I am not pleased with mine either so, what's his point? Anyhow, I accidentally forgot to mention our new Blenderized diet....I just wasn't in the mood to be scolded.
I put a message into our nutritionist that John needs to start packing on the LBS because we now have a weight check in 3 weeks...yikes! I had to laugh though because my homework is, to put more oatmeal in his FORMULA to up his calories.....OK, Mr. GI, I'll get right to it:)
John has mastered putting the circle and square puzzle pieces back into their correct place...do you think he's excited about this?
As you can see, he is also quite talented these days......he is able to crawl with a syringe in one hand and a bottle in the other!
Someone has also discovered the toilet.....time to baby proof the bathroom!

Why you ask? Well, John was DENIED his synagis' for this RSV season (after we already received a letter stating that he was APPROVED.) Ohhhhh, I am fuming again just thinking about it. We are going to keep fighting though because after all..........we have a 24 weeker who weighed a pound and a half, was ventilated for what seemed like forever, is still one years old (and won't be 2 until March...per ALL of the Dr's who say they go by their adjusted age for the first 2 years), has ST 2x a week at a clinic filled with children.....do I need to keep going? Oh, and to make matters worse.....one lady I spoke with said, "I understand your concerns. Most micro-preemies that get RSV are hospitalized and a lot of them die!" Ummmmm, hello???? Did you really need to tell this to a mother who is already terrified because they will not give her son the vaccine?
But,besides all of that, we've had a great week!
Grams, John, and I went to the park to meet our good friends, Louise, Darby, and Stephanie.......and Stephanie's 2 boys, Wyatt and Parker.
John loved hanging out with his buddies.....Wyatt shared his cheese crisp...
We had a very busy Halloween!!! Our first stop was to the mall to hang out with our friends and grab some lunch. After lunch, we came home for a quick nap and then it was off to see Great Grandma and then back home to see Grammy! Busy but fun!
Someone really needs to design costumes for kids in AZ! The poor little guy was sweating to death!
