We had a fun weekend at home with Uncle Matt and Papa visiting. Kennedy can proudly say both names now. Well, Uncle Matt sounds more like "Unhle Ma" but it's really cute. Drake shocked all of us by rolling over for the 1st time!!!!! I was working with him on tummy time, and he raised up farther than I expected and proceeded to push himself over. I grabbed my phone to document his momentous accomplishment, and he was literally smiling! So far, he has only rolled over the one time, but we know that he can do it so the bar has been raised. He came very close on Monday while he was working with his physical therapist; there are many more roll overs in his future! I know this little guy is full of great things to show us!
Upon recently finding out that one of our NICU buddies has RSV, we have taken precautions to a whole new level! Brian's sister, Angie, sent us stroller covers called SafeAir filtration covers which are designed to protect from germs, pollution, allergens, and weather. It is quite possible that we may look crazy entering and exiting buildings, but that is a small price to pay for health and safety.
Drake had his monthly synagis shot this morning to protect him from the dreaded RSV. This is one of those necessary evils. He is such a big brave boy when it comes to these appointments. He does cry (let's face it...shots hurt), but he calms down very quickly. The protection these shots provide is not a guarantee that he will not get RSV, but it is protection. With a weak and fragile immune system, Drake needs all the extra protection available.
