Mason is a week out from his back surgery so I wanted to share an update. His recovery has been easy to this point. He’s healing well and as the swelling has gone down things look a lot smoother than before. I never want to put him through surgery unless it is necessary so I’m grateful that this one has gone well. In a few more weeks he’ll be healed all the way and we will begin to see if it makes a big difference in how much clothing, diapers, and other touch hurts his back.
He is jabbering up a storm, holding all sorts of conversations with us in his own language. You know exactly what he’s saying because he points and gestures. He’s getting pretty bossy actually.
I love seeing him grow and develop, even when it means he’s getting mad every time we leave the room without him. Poor guy! If he had been my first baby I’m sure I would have carried him everywhere and been at his beck and call. Being #7 means I know he can follow me when I leave the room, so I let him do it himself. You should see how strong he’s getting moving around with just his arms all day!
