We have a contract!!

More good news...we have a contract on the house! Everyone knows that we love our house but Jack needs to be in a different school district and I need to be closer to the hospitals. We are praying that everything goes smoothly and we will be able to close at the end of February.

This was taken right after we moved in...May 2006
And now for a Jack update! He is amazing...saying three words- Hey, Bye-Bye and Hot! He is pulling up and cruising really well. He is clapping, playing pat-a-cake, waving, stacking, releasing objects into your hand. He is also doing great with the eating. He now will eat anything, no gagging or spitting. As I mentioned in a previous post, HSM cut back Jack's therapy. I appealed the decision and I have not heard anything. However, during the appeals process HSM has to reinstate his previous therapy, so he is back to weekly therapy! And now Medicaid has thrown a kink into the whole situation...they have not re approved Jack. I got a letter reading that they needed more information about his health and diagnosis before they can justify approving him...WHAT A JOKE! He is very healthy (Thank God), but his diagnosis will not change and he will need long term therapies that our private insurance will not cover 100%. SO, now I am fighting with them, too!!! Please keep us in your prayer for a smooth closing on the house and resolution of our HSM and Medicaid issues.

Jack said his first "official" word! He has been doing the typical babbling and saying da da, but nothing as purposeful as this! Of course, J and I were not there... we're working. Jack was with his Grammie and said "hot" to the lit candle in the hallway and has been repeating it for her. We are absolutely thrilled and feel very blessed to have such an amazing child . He brings us more joy than we could have ever imagined!

Look at that kissable face!!!
