We finally got to spend the entire weekend outside! The sun was shining and the breeze was refreshing – spring is finally here! (Until tomorrow, when we’re supposed to get more snow. No comment.) Jax loved, loved, loved the fresh air – we played outside in his stroller and on a blanket in the shade.
And guess what?!?! He rolled over from his tummy to his back for the first time all by himself!! He hasn’t done it since, so maybe it was a fluke, but we have confidence in him! (I think he just wanted to look at the pretty trees…) Don’t worry, we have the video camera on perma-ready, so hopefully sometime soon, we’ll be able to share a video of this huge milestone with you!
Jax likes to party. (But you knew that already!) This weekend, he went to his first fair! He loved the polka music and all the people.
We also discovered a pair of ducks living in our yard. Jax loves to watch them waddle around. They are getting a little brave, though, because I turned around for one second and all of a sudden, they were right next to Jax’s stroller waiting to see if he’d give them food!
On Saturday morning, I completed training to become a volunteer for Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota! I’ll be working primarily as a Family Advisor for the St Paul NICU. I’ll get to work with other parents, nurses, and the Care Manager to help make the NICU experience as comfortable as possible for parents with sick babies. I’ll get to work on committees to help plan future Baby Steps 3K Walks and other events and also share our story at different panel presentations, events, and workshops. I’m honored to have the opportunity to give back and can’t wait to get started! I’ll keep you posted…
I’ll have some more news for you about Jax’s upcoming Occupational and Physical Therapy plans later this week. He has another evaluation on Thursday, so we’ll know more then. Have a great week!
