9 months old! :)

Wow! It sure has been a long time since I've posted here. I guess the only explanation I have for that is that life has been pretty "normal" up until now. We were doing our best to enjoy it and indulge in every new experience. This entire post will be an update of his progress...  As of March 30, we have a big boy who sits up all by himself!

He has also made his OT very happy by playing with his toes for the first time..or as we call them, his "piggies".

He has two teeth that have been bothering him for months now! These boogers don't want to break the skin for anything!

 His favorite toy (other than my phone) is his jumper..

Parker experienced being in water for the first time.. and HATES it!
He isn't allowed to have typical baths, he only gets sponge baths. Hopefully, this water phase ends after transplant.

As you can see, we have been pretty busy at home, but Parker is being admitted for surgery tomorrow. The time has come that he needs a feeding tube to keep up with his calories. He will also need this after transplant to make sure that his new kidney receives enough fluid. This just means we are one step closer to starting the transplant process. He was 6.8 kg this morning. Once he reaches 8 kg we can start testing potential donors. Hopefully this feeding tube will help us to get there even quicker! Keep us in your thoughts and prayers for the next few days. Surgery is Friday, so I will keep you guys updated! Once again, thank you for all of your support.
