Needless to say, Kohen did NOT like the tractor Santa brought him. He was scared to death of it. Still is!! He liked everything else though.
After opening his gifts Christmas morning we went to have Christmas with the Halks. I didn't get any pictures because there were too many people there. We had a great meal and got lots of good stuff.

Last weekend we went to a baby shower for one of our college friends in Cabot. It was great getting to see everyone but Kohen was not his usual self. He did not sleep the entire way to Cabot. Needless to say he was a pistol at the shower. I was so embarrassed. Sorry Brooke. He is usually really good. I'm sure Kelly and Sam were thinking, "We will never do this again." Why is it when you need them to take a good nap, they never do? Anyway, Robin, your home is beautiful.
Now on to therapy....We had a speech eval last week. I absolutely love his theapist. She is great! I felt so much better after seeing her. I know she will do wonderful things for Kohen. She will also work on his swallowing problems.
Finally, we saw an ENT specialist at ACH last Monday. His appt was not originally until April but due to the aspiration during the stomach virus fiasco, our pediatrician got us in quick. This doctor specializes in swallowing disorders. He was fabulous. He did a scope down Kohens nose and gave us two options. Wait 6 months and treat him for reflux (which the dr. is postitive he has) or do exploratory surgery to see if anything is structurely wrong. We chose the wait and treat the reflux. We will have another swallow study done in 6 months.
Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. I will try to do better on blogging.
Kohen and Dane. Love the green pacy, Dane!
Kohen and Sam. He was the cutest frog ever!!
I know it has been a month since I last updated but boy has it been a long month. I have lots of pictures to show starting with halloween!! Yes I am behind!! Halloween was fun! Kohen did good keeping his costume on. He was the cutest dinosaur! Here are a few pictures....
(I cant figure out how to get this above the pictures!)

Next..we went for another swallow study. Failed miserably again!!!! Oh well, back to the simply thick. In a nutshell...Kohen cannot swallow thin liquids so we have to thicken them to honey consistency. When he does swallow thin liquids they go to his lungs instead of his stomach. It is called silent aspiration. He never coughs or chokes. This puts him at high risk of pneumonia. He doesn't seem to mind the Simply Thick too much. We will go back in 6 months!!

Other than that we are all fine just busy. Kohen goes to physical therapy twice a week and occupational therapy once a week. He is ALMOST walking. He will stand with no assistance for a long time. Sometimes he will take a step or two but I don't think he realizes he actually walked. His favorite mode of transportation is holding onto one of my fingers. He can run!!!

The flash on my camera quit working so I had to send it back to the manufacturer. Shannon is going to bring hers over today to get a picture of Kohen's tooth.

WOW!! It is amazing how much joy a 15 month old baby can bring. He discovers new things everyday. He makes me smile every time I look at him. I never knew I could love something so much.
Feedings: He eats any kind of meat except bologna. Not that I blame him, GROSS!! Doesn't like the texture of most vegetables. (we are working on that) Still eats vegetable and fruits via baby food. LOVES CHEETOS!!! Not a real fan of milk but loves milkshakes.
Teeth: 14 and 2 more on the way
Sleep: goes to bed at 9:00, flips over on his belly and goes to sleep. Sleeps until about 7:00. Has a 2 hour nap in the morning and 2 hour nap at 3:00. Very scheduled!!
Talking: Momma and Dada constantly!!! Something that sounds like Kitty!!Play: Loves books and the remote control. He plays so good by himself. Like the dryer and the dishwasher. Has discovered the toliet and likes to put things in the toliet.
Mobile: Crawls everywhere fast and cruises the furniture. Crawls bearcrawl sometimes. It is hilarious. Can walk holding one hand!!!!
Therapy: PT once a week, Dr. Sneed told us today to wait 2 months to see if speech is any better then we will reevaluate. He can communicate what he wants or needs. She advised us today to have an OT eval. He has sensory issues with things such as foods i.e. anything with texture-peas, beans, carrots, etc. We have eval next week. She said this is common in premature boys.
Kohen is an overall great baby. He is happy all the time. Even when he shows his "mean" face he is in a good mood.
