Feeling better finally!

I think Noah is over the cold/lung infection that he has been fighting. It was kicking his behind for awhile there, with high fevers and not tolerating his feeds along with the cough. He is getting his usual appetite back and drinking from his cup again as well. We have been trying to get him to drink more than just water from the cup and it is coming along better each day. He will now drink about an oz of milk and up to several oz of juice/water mix in a day's time. He has really tanked in the weight area and we will be working to make up for what he lost these past few weeks. As far as developmentally he continues to struggle with PT, but I think he is still making some progress. Last night we were working with him and Brian got him to stand for the longest time he has ever stood unassisted. He kinda/sorta started to take a step at one point (of course that wasn't caught on video). We are hoping that it won't be long yet before he is showing an interest in walking, but we also know we are on Noah time!

Zane has been out of school left and right due this lovely Indiana weather. Today they closed due to wind chill factors of something like -20 or close to it. We've been playing lots of games and watching movies but I think everyone is ready to get out! Zane is chomping at the bit to get out and play in the snow, but not when it's this cold! We had to google frostbite before he fully understood! I for one am going to be soooo excited when winter quarantine is over and we can all get out together again. They you can all laugh at me as I try and attempt taking 3 children out in public. Want to take bets on how many times that will happen :) Zane lost a tooth this week and I think this was the closest the tooth fairy as ever been to being "busted". He insisted on putting he tooth in the pocket of pillow and when the tooth fairy came to deliver he was sleeping on it. Thankfully she is quite skilled and has stealth like mobility :) I am not looking forward to the day the truth comes out!

Only 32 days left until the baby is here! We have given a clue that the baby's name begins with "E" and have had some very interesting guesses. I think my favorites are Elmo and Elvis. While those are both strong celebrity names, you can be assured it is neither of the two!
