Last week was a pretty quiet week, but we have big news - Ethan reached a major milestone this past week - rolling from back to stomach.

He started doing this last Monday, and by Tuesday nothing could stop him! We had Grandma and Grandpa Marshall over to see Ethan's "new trick" on Tuesday evening and then Wednesday when Grammy Chambliss came to visit (and go with us to the ENT) she got to see him roll as well!

I must admit, he is still working at getting both arms free after rolling, one is usually stuck underneath him which frustrates him, but he's turned into a little rolling machine. We are so excited!

On Wednesday we went over to Springfield to see Ethan's ENT. Dr. Bauer is great and was very encouraged by how great Ethan looks. She told us to come back in six months for another checkup, but otherwise she didn't have any concerns at this time. Dr. Bauer and our audiologist are very proactive with Ethan and know that if his hearing loss progresses to a level in which hearing aids are no longer helpful that we will seek implants. I asked Dr. Bauer about this and she's successfully implanted kids as young as one year old.

Saturday we attended Ethan's cousin Anna's first birthday party. She had a princess party - she is so cute! We had a baby boom on my husband's side of the family in the past year. There were four cousins born from December 2009 to July 2010 - so, they will all be in the same grade! Talk about four crazy moms when its time for Kindergarten! :)

Today Ethan had his visit from his dietitian, Jen. He weighed in at an amazing 16 lbs. and 10 oz.! He is 27 inches long. His weight is now at the 50th percentile and his height is just above the 75th percentile. I think that Jen was almost as ecstatic as I was! Tomorrow, Ethan has physical therapy, so we’ll have to wait and see what she says.

Prayer Requests
