My new friend Jackson
Last weekend Braden got to meet a special friend - baby Jackson. Jackson has a condition called arthrogryposis - his arms and legs have contractures. Jackson is a sweet and precious little baby who thought it was pretty neat to be around a baby bigger than he is. Braden seemed to enjoy little Jackson and shared his blanket while they napped together. The mommies sat them up to enjoy each other, and they seemed pretty enamored with one another. Mom & Dad (Doris & Jonathan) enjoyed a nice evening cook-out with us. It was nice to spend some time with a family in a situation similar to ours, who has a social schedule like us too - you know, we pretty much stay at home:-)
Braden is still working on tooth #5, he is pretty fussy at times because of it. On a good note, he is holding his head more mid-line and trying to pick it up more every day. While it may be coincidental, Uncle Scott & his girlfriend Patty got Braden a salt ionizer lamp for his birthday, which we put up as soon as we got home from his hospital stay, and we think it is part of the reason we have seen such great improvement in Braden's development, but we don't know for sure. We can't wait to see what our little man has in store for us next!
