And this year is no different! It was THREE year ago today (sad that I know this) that a little cell began to divide and divide and divide over and over and over...after years of infertility a miracle came to life! Seven months later, that miracle we named William would be welcomed to the world (a tad bit early!) after a very tumultreous pregnancy.
Now that little cell that came into being three years ago today is 28 months old, wreacking havoc, and sadly has a late-summer cold at the moment. So this mom is dealing with snot and sneezes and other bodily "ewwws" at the moment. He's Thomas The Train obssesed, loves Toy Story 3, Shrek, and Rio, and also loves his flash cards and online ABC learning programs. He still enjoys going to Gymboree weekly and playing with my iPhone!
He's a very picky eater who's practically a "Wheatatarian" as that's his staple! He does enjoy most meats but only eats meat maybe two days a week. Sadly we discovered a few months back he's lactose intolerant so we spend a FORTUNE on lactose free milk. He recently decided that he now LOVES pizza (maybe because he just learned that word this week? LOL) so I think we'll have to either make it cheese free or buy vegan, and he now loves ice cream, lactose free is $6 a pint of course! ;-) He loves bread and of course all bread contains MILK so he has to eat Kosher bread and bagels only, and he won't touch a veggie or a fruit :-(
He loves dogs and cats, giving kisses and hugs, running and jumping, helping Mommy unload the dishwasher and load the dryer (thank God! LOL) and splashing in the tub with his Thomas toys.
He's now just shy of 36 inches and around 30-31 lbs, too heavy for this Mamma to carry! His eyes are mostly green with just a few golden specks, and still sports long blond hair. His feet grew TWO sizes in a month this summer but he still fits in some 18 month clothes, mostly 24 month and swims in 2T!
Here's some more recent pictures of our little miracle preemie!
