- He wears a helmet now to fix his flat head. He gets a 1 hour break every day, so we took his break for his pictures today. He has had it for almost a month and will probably continue to wear it for 3 or so more months. We can already see a big difference in his head shape so that's awesome.
- He is REALLY trying to crawl. He gets up on all fours and rocks back & forth. Then he lunges himself forward as hard as he can. He gets to what he wants using that method and the plain old scooting method.
- He is still obsessed with his tongue and all of the funny things he can do with it.
- He is loving his baby food now and has even had his first taste of a little bit of "real" food. Mashed Potatoes & Shredded Chicken
- He has become more & more vocal as the days go on. He definitely lets out a loud squeal if he is frustrated or upset by something.
- Just a few days ago, he started really babbling. He started with "Dadadadada" and now has moved on to "Gagaga" and"Bababa" but his favorite is still "Dada." Needless to say, Marty is eating that up.

We just returned home from the Give Hope to Haiti benefit concert here in The Woodlands and Aaron Ivey was one of the talented artists set to play. I was very much looking forward to hearing him. Little did I know when we arrived, he was no longer there. Not because he had already played. In fact, he never played. He was in The Woodlands, ready for his music set, when he received word that Amos (the boy they have been trying to bring home from Haiti for a very long time to join their family) was on a plane to Orlando. As in Florida. As in the United States! They immediately left the The Woodlands, headed straight to the airport, got tickets and boarded a plane. You must watch the video below. It's the song Aaron wrote to Amos and his promise to him to bring him home. To know that as I am typing this post and publishing it to my blog, this man and his wife are on a plane to get their boy, Amos, is almost too much for me to bear. To know that our God can bring something so incredible and so wonderful out of such horrific tragedy gives me hope.
