This is not just a greeting--we really had a good morning. Joseph woke up at 8:30 after a good night's sleep (with a few wakings). He sat up on the couch and watched his new train go around the track for a long time, then he sat up completely on his own and fed himself 2.5 bowls of cereal. We got out his new play-doh set and he and Holly and Daddy made "spaghetti." He even walked around with help and was smiling and enjoying himself more than he has in a long time. It was like he woke up and forgot he had had surgery and wasn't feeling well. We praise God for his small daily improvements. I'm trying to add photos so hopefully they will post okay.
Oh, and Scott, to answer your question about toys. Joseph has gotten some wonderful toys--we have even had to put some away to present later or for Christmas. Thank you all for the sweet presents. He has or will enjoy all of them. So I would say to hold off for now. We'll let you know if he is just begging for a Wii or something (or if Allen is). :) But I think I have to side with Paige on that one. Just say No!
