He can now do this for a while. It’s amazing.

If you could just see the look on his face when he does this, it’s a look of determination mixed with a little bit of “Look at me! Look at me!” I love it.

He’s been having a little bit of difficulty sitting up on his own, but we’ve been working on it every day. ย I really think it’s a balance issue more than a muscle weakness issue.ย And well..

:)

He sat like that for at least two minutes before he became interested in a toy that was on the floor. He went from sitting up for ten seconds without support to two full minutes! It’s the little things, people. The little miracles all around us, just look, God is working everywhere. ๐Ÿ™‚

Sitting up and hanging on for the first time in a shopping cart. :)

We had Dillon’s urology appointment yesterday.

His kidneys look great! And his urologist said the fact that his kidneys still look so good means that he’s emptying his bladder sufficiently. MIRACLE! Praise God!

Hopefully we will also get an eye appointment set up soon. Dillon alternates crossing one eye. It’s not severe, but I’m afraid it might be affecting his vision slightly (causing double vision). Not a major problem, but something I’d like for him to have fixed if it’s causing trouble.

You can see how he's crossing his left eye inward just a little bit. Look at him sitting up, though! Adorable.

You can see how he’s crossing his right eye inward just a little bit in this picture. Look at him sitting up, though! Adorable.

More good news? You got it! Dillon has been perfecting his crawl. Lately, he’s been taking a few hand/knee steps, and it is awesome! I’m so proud. ๐Ÿ™‚

Crawled out of his room while I was doing laundry. He's a little sneaky sneaky.

Waiting on another little miracle, which I believe will happen in God’s time (the perfect time), is Paisley Kate. She has HLHS and she needs a heart transplant, so she needs your prayers! I got to meet her yesterday and I can just feel God working on a miracle. Go to her page Prayers for Paisleyย and give her some love. ๐Ÿ™‚

And in conclusion, here is a picture of my little stud muffin in a baby swing:

Cuteness overload.
