All good in the hood

Things are going well. Jax had his follow up at the pediatrician's office today, and we can start to ween him off the Orapred steroid tomorrow. It should take about a week and then he'll have his final follow up with the doctor next week Wednesday.
He's back to his spunky self and back to running the household and making us crazy ;)

The boys love sitting on the potty, but they don't know how to actually make themselves go. Tonight Jax made grunting noises like he was trying to tell his body how to pee, but he couldn't figure it out. He looked at me and said, "all done". Hey, we try. We've decided to let them explore the potties and sit on them, but we're not officially training them. They're just not ready, which is fine. They're working so hard on other developments right now, so I'm sure it could be confusing and overwhelming.

Brady had his first extra one-on-one speech session today with his therapist from the school district. I got to sit in on it and observe. Today focused on "monkeys and marbles". A lot of repetitive M-words. His therapists are amazing, so hopefully he'll start to pick up some skills to help the words come.

*I need to say a big THANK YOU to Auntie Rachel and Uncle D for taking Brady during the hospital stay. It made things much easier for Jason and I to focus on Jax and keeping each other sane through everything. Also a thank you to Shannon for the visit on Saturday. Even though Jax wasn't the most cheerful, it was nice to have another soul in the room and to take a coffee-walk. And thank you to everyone for all the love and support with emails, texts, phone calls, social media - we feel so loved, thank you! Jax pulls through every time, our little fighter!
