We took the boys to the park on Saturday to celebrate Caleb’s birthday.  Caleb had a big bowling party the week before, but he wanted to be sure his actual birthday was celebrated.  It was a pretty casual time, and Joel really loved the swings!  (In some of these photos you can really see how Joel’s feet have turned in.)

Whenever anyone who has been following Joel’s story for a while get to see him in person, I usually show them his scar.  So, I finally took a photo of the scar on the back of Joel’s head so you can see it.  I am really happy with how light the scar is, I’m pretty sure when his hair grows back in you won’t even be able to see it.

These photos were taken this past Saturday.  You can really see his eyelashes very well now.

Joel is eating chicken alfredo noodles. Hoping his appetite is on the rebound…

This is a photo of Joel from Wednesday, the day we admitted him to the hospital. This was right after he perked up after getting some tylenol.

I think it’s amazing how great Joel looks even on a day when he is sick. He used to look way worse even when he was well.

Here are a couple photos from our mini vacation this weekend. More to come in the next couple of days.

Joel and I were interviewed for a fundraising video last week. They took some photos afterwards and sent me this one in an email.

Joel has decided that sleeping is for babies and, as newly appointed big boy, has decided to stay up late.  This is Joel, in his crib, in the hospital, in the dark.  Guess I shouldn’t leave him “toys”
