It has been a while since we talked about Rigg... And seeing as I like to talk about him it is surprising it has been so long!
He is blooming...if you can say that about a young boy.
He is jabbering more and more. He LOVES to laugh and it is So easy to get him to giggle.
He is eating more solid foods on his own and has almost mastered the sippy cup... I say almost because he will still toss it on the floor with a bewildered expression about its whereabouts just seconds after said toss... He can get all the water out of it though...no help needed!
Still not crawling... not even the least bit interested. Incidentally...he is not even interested in rolling! He can! I have seen him do it... but only when forced and never of his own volition. He hates being on his tummy and immediately rolls on to his back within 3 seconds of being placed on his belly. Because he only rolls from his tummy to his back in one direction, I have resorted to placing him up against a stack of pillows or the couch to keep him on his stomach. He is only semi-content for about 5-10 min before he burrows his face in the floor and starts to fuss.
Caden was almost crawling when she passed away. So in my mind Rigg is a little behind... I need to get over it.. he is fine... just lazy!
Oh well, he will move eventually! Until then I can just enjoy him where he is...and enjoy the freedom I have to leave a room for longer then a couple minutes at a time!
Hey all,If you do not know us, the first thing you should know is how much we love the Lord our God, and we are striving to live lives worthy of the title, Believer.
The second is we are praying everyday for His return. On that day we will be reunited with our precious baby girl Caden, the treasure of our hearts. Since the death of our daughter we have battled grief, hurt, tears in public, brain surgery and chemo. We have also celebrated new life in the birth of our 2 sons. So come, read, share and enjoy the life God has given us. Although it is not perfect, or even what we had planned it is what He wants for us, so we choose to rejoice.
"Michael said Caden's funeral felt like a wedding. I smile to type that, because in many ways, it was: a celebration of one little bride being united with the Lamb."

things that make me laugh
I came back into the room from treating myself to a nice, cold diet coke when I saw the Captain playing with Rigg. He was making the stuffed animal dance in the air toward our son and saying in a sing-song voice “Here comes the zebra.” I looked at him and said in the exact same sing-song voice “It’s a giraffe.” To which the Captain, with only the briefest pauses, sing-songed back the reply… “Daddy had brain surgery.“
