So hard to believe its been over a month! Sam has begun to sleep more at night, and is very awake and aware most parts of the day. He and Ellen are getting regular walks (almost daily) in his new Chariot.
Last night, we took our first family bike ride across town for dinner at Aunt Leslie and Uncle Scott's house. Sam loved riding behind the bike and only cried when we stopped. Talk about motivation to ride your bike!
Ellen has been released by the doctor to resume full normal activity, and just in time. Starting in a little over a week, she goes back to work.
We are still adjusting to the changed sleep patterns and increased coffee consumption, but overall the jump into family has treated us well.
