Sorry I've been absent

Ok...  I need to apologize for being absent from here.  I suppose it is a good thing really.  Seth is doing so well that I haven't thought much about updating.  My family, however, wants to know where new pictures are so I suppose I better get back in the saddle.  I cannot upload pictures this time because I am not of the computer with all the pictures.  I will try to remember to do that in the next few days.

Seth is, as I said, doing well.  He is such a sweet baby.  He will be 18 weeks on Friday (having shared his 4 month birthday with my 30something one on Sunday).  He is sleeping through the night until about 6:30 - 7:00 every morning.  He wakes up happy and talks.  He is quite the chatterbox.  He makes really serious faces too when he is talking.  It is quite sweet.  He has his 4 month appointment on Thurs. so I will update you on his stats then.  He is just over 11.5 pounds.  Still my peanut.  Nathan was 14.5 pounds at 7 weeks!!!  Quite a difference.  

We are also on an adventure to see what we can do to help Seth.  As many of you know, Nathan had been diagnosed with Autism three years ago at 2.5.  We went to see Dr. Jerry who set us on the path of the GFCF diet and supplements.  Well, Dr. Jerry says that there are a lot of things we do to help Seth be more "neuron typical".  Not sure exactly what that means, but we are ready to find out.  Don't get me wrong, I LOVE my little guy, Downs or no Downs, but I want to do all that I can for him to make his life fuller.  Who knows, maybe God has a story to tell with him.

Well, I am going to sign off for now.  It has been a long day and a sad one at that.  I don't want to write about it right now - but for those of you that pray, please pray for me.  I got some hard news about someone in my family.  Please pray for healing and salvation.
