Ben's been on my mind...a LOT. He usually is. In less than a month, he'll be turning 8. That's a HUGE milestone. I also saw that his birthday falls on Easter this year. It makes it that much more special. I'm really excited to celebrate his special day. I would LOVE to throw him a big party but Ben's kind of a party pooper. (so we'll keep it small and cozy) He's really doing well with his vent settings. I've been slowly weaning him back down from his latest hospital stay. That doesn't mean he'll be coming off the vent, it just means that hopefully he'll be back down to some low vent settings. I still take him off to hold him every day. I love to snuggle his cute (but growing) body. I was holding him in the kitchen the other day and Steve took a picture to show just how large he is getting. I can't stand for more than a few minutes with him anymore because he's just too heavy for my back but I'm grateful that I can still lift and carry him.
