Friday, we went to see Dr. Granger for the last time in a very long time. Next time we see him Ian will be 6 years old. He made the final adjustments to the NAM, adding a piece between the nose stints to create an indention at the base of the nose.

We also went to do pre-op at the Day Surgery Center on Friday. Ian had another physical to make sure he's ready for the big day. He weighed 16.3 pounds, but this was with all clothes and a full belly, and he is 26 inches long. He's grown over an inch and a half in less than a month! Since Ian's pediatrician did hear a heart murmur at the 4-month healthy visit, the nurse decided it was best to do an echo cardiogram of his heart. He was such a good boy, laughing and playing with the echo tech the whole time! Luckily, the results were normal. However, there is a part where two arteries did not completely connect, but this is supposedly very common and nothing to worry about. The nurse said since he's still so young, there is a possibility that it may fix itself.
Now we just sit and wait until Tuesday...

Sit-up on his own for a short period of time.
Laugh in response to people.
Use his feet for everything, particularly playtime and eating.
Roll from his back to stomach.
Reach for things, including but not limited to toys and his puppies.
Rotate himself when lying on his stomach.
Sleep through the night(10-11 hours).
Scream, but not because he's upset. It's more like a new way to communicate his joy.
Support himself on his feet, with our help of course.
He's growing up so quickly, just like everyone said he would. It's sad and exciting all at the same time. Today I went through some clothes in his chest of drawers that he had outgrown a month or so ago, but I had a hard time cleaning them out at the time.
