Here are some pictures of Ben, Maria, and Allison. As you can see they enjoyed each other's company. Benjamin's cardiologist's appointment went well. No changes in medication or anything. We just have to hang tight and steady. Ben's therapy is also going good. He can flip over, and is not a fan of tummy time. Although we can get him to do it when distracting him with toys. He is grabbing at things and getting better with his hands. He has been sitting in the bumbo better than ever, although he can't sit by himself yet. As you can see is happy and social. Thanks for checking in. The McCarthy's

Benjamin is hanging in there!

Sweet Ben had his last RSV shot for the year yesterday and he weighed 15lbs 10oz. I can't believe he is almost in size three diapers. On Sunday/Monday he had the stomach flu and I took him into the pediatrician. He is doing so much better now. This Friday he has a cardiologist apt. He is a very happy boy, and all he wanted when he was sick was to be held. He even cracked smiles when he was not feeling good. We are going to plan a baptism at our church in May for him, since he is doing so well. Also please pray for baby Aubrey's family. She is in heaven now, and had the same surgery as Ben at about the same time in Dec. She fought to the end, and was a sweetheart. Thanks for checking in.

Good Days

Hello everyone, I am sorry for the delinquent post. I have just been so busy. My cousin Katie passed away and we went to visit my niece Maria in Ann Arbor in the pass week. Work has been extremely busy as well. I also went to the Addy awards last Thursday night which was wonderful. I am getting my first pair of glasses as well. Dan is keeping busy with home improvement projects, work, and caring for our kids.

Benjamin is doing fantastic. He is seeing a physical and occupational therapist. We are seeing improvement with tummy time and with grasping. He is such a happy boy and we are starting to get braver about taking him out. He lights up when Dan or I walk into the room he is. He really enjoys his parents.

Allison is also doing wonderful. She is potty trained, except for naps and night time. I am thinking about taking her to a fun toddler disco party March 12.

I gotta run, but I plan on getting you some pictures soon. I have not downloaded them from my camera yet. Hopefully this weekend. Have a wonderful week.
