So sorry! I've been missing in action the last few weeks. My life has consisted of dry heaving, ER visits for iv and then dry heaving and more dry heaving. I'm very excited to be 8 1/2 weeks pregnant, but not very excited AT ALL to have been diagnosed with "Hyperemesis Gravidarum". That big fancy name basically means- severe morning sickness. UGH!

Anyway-- Jimmie is truckin along doing great! Rachael texted me this hilarious picture of the goofy smile he's pulling lately.

Jimmie is still sleeping really well through the night in his own bed in his own room. He's eating pretty consistently and gaining weight (just slowly) as always. He's working hard in speech therapy. All signs still point towards Apraxia. It's a little early yet to know for sure though...

Tomorrow Jimmie will be 25 months old! Rach and I have decided that we will do 4 developmental birthday letters this year instead of 1 every month. So the next big developmental letter I will write to Jimmie will be May 11th. My plan for the blog this year is to post once a week with a picture and an update for the week. If I'm unable to do that perhaps I can talk Rachael into doing it. (-:

Thank you for your care and prayers for Jimmie!
