A bit of an unusual weekend

We have been teaching Elijah to shut his eyes when the sun is shining in his face. It's so much better than screaming.

We have had kind of a pieced together, unusual weekend. It has been rainy and cold, which has kept Dan from getting much work at the dropzone. A few helpers have come over to assist with Elijah while Dan was attempting to work. My contractions have been staying pretty consistent and my stomach is growing by the minute. Elijah has had his good and bad moments and I discovered that closing a 3-year-old up inside for an extended period of time is like putting a wild lion in a really tiny cage for a month or so.

Elijah has a cardiology appointment tomorrow, so I feel a tiny bit of anxiety about that. Hopefully he will continue to surprise us all in a good way.

We hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

It's weird - I know many kids have the same things but when another or several heart kids have the same thing you start to wonder... Evan (and his best heart buddy) screamed when the sun shined in their eyes - it still seems to bother Evan a lot. Hope the cardio appt. went well. Evan had one last Thur. and I need to update his blog.
