He looks all grown up with his lip closed and nose formed the right way. He gets the nasal stent removed on August 7th. He is not quite sitting up yet, he loves to roll around on the floor, he has started grabbing my hair, put things in his mouth (like burp clothes, his bib, and his clothes if he can), and he has had his first bowl of rice cereal. I haven't been consistent with solid foods, so this month I am really going to work on it. And just for fun, here is a comparison of the last 30 days of his life.

I had to go to the doctor yesterday, so my friend babysat the kids at her in-laws house. They went swimming the whole time I was gone which made the little kids extremely happy. Ammon got to stay for a while after I got back and had delicious ice cream. Zenock was at a birthday party at the water park during this time. Both boys had a great time swimming and playing with friends.

His lip is healing so well. Now that the glue is off I get to put Sun screen on it every day for a year no matter the weather. I love his smile. It was cute before with his cleft as well. We had a fun time with samples in Costco today. I also decided that Rydon would be an Olympian if spitting up all over everything when a burp cloth is right in front of him was a sport. He is such a barfy baby.
The last picture is here because I took it in California and had it blown up for my family photo wall. I will cherish this photo always because it was taken two days before Rydon's lip was closed forever.

Rydon's super glue came off this morning. I love how it looks. He is a mini Gideon. I also wanted to show what a bugger looks like when in his nasal stent. This is for my journaling to remember later, so if you think it's gross, sorry. The qtip on the left is his super glue, and the right one has the bugger. I have to dip qtips in hydrogen peroxide and gently clean his nose every day. He doesn't like having his nose messed with at all! The other pictures are from today as well. We went to the kids club at the mall where a clown does a show and makes balloon things for the kids after. Everyone loved it, and Ayla had her first outing wearing panties and not having an accident. I think she just about has potty training down. It's been very long 7 weeks with that.
