Today we got a great report from the opthomologist at ACH. He said Kohen's eyes look good and we don't have to go back for another year. As for Kohen's behavior today, NOT SO GOOD!! He was awful. They had to dilate his eyes first and it went downhill from there. HE WAS MAD. Anyway we are home now so thanks for all your prayers.

Tomorrow we go to ACH to the opthomologist for Kohens eye check up. It has been a year since he has been there. For those of you who dont know, preemies have a really high risk of having eye problems due to the large amounts of oxygen they receive when they are in the hospital. The oxygen stimulates the vessels in their eyes to grow at an alarming speed, thus causing high percentages of eye problems down the road. It is called ROP, retinopathy of prematurity. When Kohen was in the NICU they checked his eyes every two weeks. Only once out of all those times did the dr see anything concerning. Even after we came home, we still went to ACH every two weeks for a while. Then it went to every three months, then six. This is the first yearly checkup. He will have go until he is 5 or able to read, whichever comes first. I'm thinking 5!! Wish us luck!

Loves wearing his "big boy pants!"
We have officially began pottytraining. So far it has gone well. Yesterday he used the potty once and three times today!! I will not mention how many times I have just sat in the bathroom with Kohen on the potty and nothing happen. I am so glad nobody can see me when he does use the potty. It is a BIG deal!!! (He will probably kill me for these pictures one day!)

Kohen has decided to broden his horizon when it come to food!!! Finally!! He has started eating mac and cheese. I never thought I'd be excited about what he eats. It seems like all he will eat with meat is french fries or cheetos. Brandon calls him "Cheeto." I guess all that Speech therapy is working. Maybe this sensory thing is coming to an end!

The birthday boy.
Kohen was helping MikeMo (Michael) keep score!!
Nikki Garner made Will's cake. It was very cute!!
Today Will turned 5!! He had his birthday party at the bowling alley. Remind me to never do that. It was complete caios!! There were kids everywhere. Will did seem to have fun though. Sometimes it is hard to remember he is only 5 because he is so much bigger than all the other kids his age. I guess growing up with a big brother makes him seem older.
