Wheezing, coughing, snot and more!

Wonder where I have been?
Alex woke up Tuesday morning wheezing, coughing, and snotting. He didn't sleep well the night before, and was very lazy and tired on Tuesday. He just cuddled his pillow and watched movies upside down all day.
Wednesday was much better, woke up a little wheezy, but with breathing treatments, and lots of suctioning he has been able to eat at about 95% normal amounts.
This morning around 11:00 we leave for Saint Louis for an eye appointment to check his vision, and also to see if his tear duct remains open after the tear duct probe he had last summer. If it has closed back up he will have it probed again and a stent placed when he has his PDA closed in April. If it remains open I plan on getting an eye doctor closer to home since he wont be needing anymore eye surgery's.

Nie Nie

Alex LOVES pillows. One of his favorite things to do is grab the big soft couch pillow, throw it on the floor, and lay on it. I can even tell him to go nie nie, and he will lay his head on the pillow. So when I saw a pillow pet at the store in search of gifts for my valentines, I thought it was perfect for Alex.

He thinks so too!

Drum line

Lately Alex has figured out that his toys aren't stationary, and that even though he crawls he can move things. He has been bringing what he wants to play with, where he wants to play with it. What he really likes to do is set his keyboard on a good drum beat, and take it with him wherever he goes. There are track marks in the carpet of the toys he pushes around the house. I have been sitting on the couch, and look down the hall because I hear the drum beat getting louder, only to see Alex pass from one room to the next with his keyboard, and drum beat rhythmically setting the tone for play and dance. and what a groovy dance he has!

Getting ready to move closer to his momma

with drum beat guiding him

pick just the right rythm

Do a little dance

before moving on to another favorite spot

This is a drum line like no other..............
and so is Alex!
