Another thing, as I'm sure you have noticed I haven't posted about Fletcher's PO feedings. Well, they haven't being going so great. As a matter of fact, today upon taking his first bite, he got choked and the food came out of his nose and for the first time, the food came out of his trach. Not good. So, no more food for Fletcher. I'm not terribly sad about this because it has been such a task to feed him and on top of that he hates every moment of it! So, we'll hopefully go see our ENT and go from there.
Lately I have been feeling quite nostalgic and I have decided that I am going to blog about Fletcher from the beginning. I feel like some of my new friends don't know Fletcher's story and I thought this would be a great way to catch you up! I will probably do it in two or three posts that way it won't be so intimidating to read. So, stay tuned for that! Bye for now!

I also thought it would be fun to add a few pictures from last years festival. Fletcher was a frog and Maddie was a doctor. The whole doctor thing went over well at TCC everyone just loved it! She wore scrubs and crocs and had a stethoscope. We borrowed Fletcher's costume from my Steph. It was perfect except it was a hot one, too!

Amber , my super funny friend Millie and one of my newest friends Susie these girls are truly fabulous moms!
Sniz also sent me another meme it's called Seven True Things About Me. So here they are...
1) I love my family and would do anything for them.
2) I love to laugh especially with my sisters!
3) I used to be a good listener, now I'm easily distracted.
4) I love getting a manicure and pedicure! What a treat!
5) I'm too sarcastic sometimes.
6) I'm easily overwhelmed.
7) I'm extremely insecure, but serve an amazingly confident God!
Now I'm supposed to tag seven people... Millie , Kristin , Kacie , Kayleigh , Kristin C , Christa and Traci Tag, you're it!

Monna and Fletcher
Monna, Kayleigh, Maddie and Pops lunch after church
Thursday and Friday I was able to go to school with Fletcher and spend the whole hour observing this ever so smart boy of mine! He is truly amazing and I'm so proud of him. On Tuesdays and Thursdays Fletcher stands in his supine stander during class. Isn't he the cutest thing you've ever seen? Each day they start their class time with songs. They sing the hello song with each child's name and then they get to choose a song. Lately Fletcher's song of choice is Wheels on the Bus. He loves music and he loves for us to sing to him.

Fletcher had a pretty good day also. Craig came up at lunch and we met with Fletcher's physical therapist. She showed us some holding and sitting positions we could do with Fletcher while we're spending time with him. It was hard watching him in a supported sitting position, he hated it! He cried quite a bit. Craig and I kept telling ourselves this is for Fletcher's good and he's just not used to this blah, blah, blah! Who would have thought sitting up would be so hard? Not us! Please continue to pray for him and us. We want so much for him to have some independence and he's just not going to get that laying in a bed for 20-22 hours a day. These pictures are from school this morning.
Guess who wants to go first?
Nice new long sleeve shirt, Bubba!
Thursday and Friday the girls are on Fall Break! Woo Hoo! Kayleigh's grandparents, Monna and Pops will be here from Mississippi. That should be a lot of fun. It's always such a treat to have them visit. They'll take the girls to a hotel (with a swimming pool) and take them shopping and probably to the zoo. We'll get a lot done in just a few short days, maybe we'll even get some pansies in the front flower bed! It will be fun!

He really doesn't want that bite, daddy!
I love the way Fletcher is holding onto Craig's finger! So sweet!
As Maddie would say, 'Mommy you're in love with Bubba's feet and hands!"

On Thursday Maddie went to our sweet friend, Miss Jo's house to spend the afternoon. The two of them had a great time, while they were out shopping Miss Jo bought Maddie this neat book about painting rocks. Maddie has spent most of the weekend painting rocks with anyone who would sit down long enough to pick up a paint brush! She has painted with Kayleigh, with Daddy and with her cousin EmiLee. Here is her collection so far...
