All of this has made me think back to when Mason's GI issues were at their worst. I've gone back and re-read some of the blog posts I wrote at the time and recalling how hard it was brought tears to my eyes. I guess I was just feeling a great deal of empathy for my old self. We went through some rough times without the luxury of the knowledge and experience we have now. Before we figured out what was going on with Mason, I wrote that he was "a constant source of joy and worry". The same can be said of Jordan now. I worry a lot about getting him the nutrition he needs to grow but he is such an incredible joy too and the more he relaxes, the more of his fun personality we get to see. I love his scrunched up "cheese" face and the way he nods, smiles and raises his eyebrows like we're sharing an inside secret whenever we reach an understating, and I adore his little obsession with cars and how he says c-aaah-r all day long in his funny little voice. The kid makes us smile. We're going through a stressful period with his eating, but we know that things can get better. I'm just feeling a bit impatient. But look at this kid... he is so worth it!!
P.S. I'm going to start phasing my knitting blog back into a knitting blog and just use our private family blog for family posts. If we actually know you "in real life", and you'd like an invite, just leave a comment with your email address and I'll add you to that blog :)
