Back from Calgary with some new pictures of Hunter Jimmy

I have been back home for 2 night shifts and a day shift already! I had to go back to work as soon as I got home and so I am just finally getting to post a few pictures of the little cutie.

He loves to smile and laugh and crawl around. He loves to eat. He is such a little chatty guy - always "talking" He is very busy and happy -- much like his mother!

Isn't that a fabulous smile!!!

Here is a picture of him with the bunny -- much bigger than the bunny now!

I went with Jessica one day to the Children's Hospital for Hunter to get an RSV shot. My sister just recently started working there so she came by for a quick visit and I promised her I would put her picture on my blog - since she has been reading it lately!! (Hi Shane)

Hunter has a little wandering eye and will be going to the eye clinic at the Children's Hospital next week I think. He is also going to the hospital for an overnight sleep study. It seems he has a bit of sleep apnea. Jessica now has a C-pap machine for him to wear at night but it takes quite a bit of time to get a baby used to wearing a face mask blowing air up their little noses. He is slowly getting used to it but he can pull the nose part off faster than it takes to put the head part around! I wonder if they can ever convince him to wear the thing. While I was there the Occupational Therapist came for her monthly visit. She was pretty happy to see his progress. In December when she was there Hunter wasn't sitting up by himself all that well. This month he is sitting very strong and straight and crawling everywhere. He goes from a crawling to a sitting position and back to crawling. He is grabbing things with both hands. Eating very well - that's pretty evident by how chubby he is! It is sure nice to have the OT come by the house. She referred Hunter for some Massage classes for next month and pretty soon he will be starting music therapy. It was a great visit - babies are a LOT of work! I came home very tired and then had to work two night shifts - had a short turn around and worked a day shift. Maybe I should have a little cheese with my wine ( whine).

I am finally going to be able to go to my Quilt Guilt meeting tonight. The first one in months - I have written out a little list of UFO's I want to finish this spring. Jim is off to Portland for meetings the beginning of February so maybe a little mini quilt retreat while I am on my own will get a few things completed. Best laid plans........................
