Happy 6 Months!

Happy 6 Months to Matthew!

We cannot believe it has already been 6 months since our sweet baby Matthew joined the world!  Wow, it has been a steep and dramatic learning curve!  Darren, Alyssa, Jackson and I love Matthew more and more every day.  He’s a calm & happy baby.  We love seeing Aly and Jax interacting with him.  It's just too sweet!

Matthew’s 6 month check up was today.  We are happy with our new pediatrician.  One of my concerns has been Matthew’s excessive sweating (especially while eating) and our pediatrician recommended we do a stress test during our visit today to see if it is a cardio or a brain regulatory issue.  Matthew passed the stress test, so it is probably not a cardio issue, but Matthew has developed a new heart murmur we are going to have looked at by a cardiologist.  Other than that new finding, Matthew is in good health with his known uniquenesses. 
Matthew’s going to be busy this next month—a renal ultrasound, urologist appt, craniofacial/neurology appt, cardiology appt, nephrology appt, in addition to occupational therapy, speech therapy and a visit with ECI…whew!  We pray for good results from all of these upcoming consultations!!  Thank you for the continued prayers for baby Matthew!
