On July 18th, he had his tonsils and adenoids removed as well as ear tubes put in. He also had his tongue clipped for a possible very mild tongue tie. He had to stay overnight for one night at Texas Children's Hospital. Poor guy had a tough time with it and it took about 10 days for him to get back to his normal self. Removing those tonsils and adenoids have helped him tremendously! He doesn't snore while he sleeps and he doesn't sound like Darth Vader when he breaths. We are so glad that is done and over with!

Brandon is doing better at crawling. He is getting up on his hands and knees more often when he crawls. He is also getting better with sitting up. He can sit up because we have seen him do it, but he is always on the move and therefore he won't stay sitting. He's a busy boy! He has been "W" sitting and his PT is working on reducing that. We know its not the correct way for him to sit. Brandon prefers it because it gives him a wider base for support. As I always say with time he will get it and do it correctly with time.
He is getting PT, OT and speech therapy. He is taking his time with talking. He is now saying mamma, daddy (da-dee), bye, baby and ball. He is also still on the bottle, but I think I have found a good cup (take & toss sippy cup) that he will drink from and will try another cup to help the transition off that bottle.
He loves to look at pictures of babies and gets excited when he sees a baby. Brandon also loves to look at pictures of mommy and daddy. He just has to look at the pictures of Thomas and I that are hanging on our walls.
Brandon also loves to be read to. I read to him every night before he goes to bed. He is my sweet little boy and I love him so very much. He definitely completes our family.
