Swim Lessons and Little Man Update

Big Sister
Isabella started swim lessons last night with daddy. It was the cutest thing. Of course, like most baby swim classes, this is to get her used to the water and to know how to react to it. She loved splashing her arms, reaching/holding on to the side, and especially jumping into daddy's arms. I can only imagine that her little head was thinking, "The big guy will catch me!" Each time Chris would set her on the edge she would dive right for him.

Some of the new things Bella is doing:
1. trying to say new words like mouth, turtle, clap
2. clapping - it has taken some time, but she is finally clapping her hands
3. reaching for the sky - it is so cute because she really does it when we sing Itsy Bitsy Spider and Twinkle Twinkle
4. stacking and collapsing blocks

The walking took a step backward with her stint in the hospital and week of getting back to feeling normal. It seemed as though she was so close before getting sick. Now we are back to focusing on standing, weight shifting and finding spacial awareness.

Little Man
Zachary got measured today at my perinatal visit. He is charting at 21wks 2days and weighs approximately 15oz. According to the doctor, everything about him looks beautiful. They will keep me on progesterone at least until 34wks and may do a steroid shot at 26wks. Please continue to pray with us that Zachary stays where he is for as long as possible!

Zachary! I love it! Although I think Aaron is going to be disappointed. He was hoping for Jose, Paco, or El Gigantor. I was sad to hear that you guys will not be able to make it for Relay for Life in Bville. :( Hopefully you can bring the whole fam up next year!
