We've been sick...

Sorry I've not been blogging much - Stephen was down with a sinus infection, and now I have some respiratory thing going on...

Stephen had his well-child check today, and everything is good.  He weighs a hearty 48lbs, and is 43.5" tall, which means he has gained 4lbs, and grown about 2" since last year, which is great!  Everything else is going well too, so I have nothing interesting to report from his appointment.

Something exciting that is happening at swimming, however, is THIS:

Sorry it's a bit fuzzy - I took it with my phone, and then cropped it so you can see what he's doing.  Stephen is HOLDING the kickboard!  This is a very new skill for him, and has always been difficult due to his poor hand strength.  However, he started doing this last week, all on his own.  His teacher, Miss Carrie, is holding him at the hips, to remind him to kick at the top of the water, instead of underneath, where he wouldn't be able to propel himself forward.  We are very excited!!

Stephen has also been having fun playing Uno Moo, as well as playing with his Green Lantern toys, and after we find the right kind of card holder for him that we can set on the table, we'll start trying some card games too.  It's been a great 2013 so far!!
