But here's a quick update anyway.
Aaron is also back on vent trials! He's doing really well with them. We're building up fairly slowly, so right now he does one hour off the vent and then three hours back on it. I haven't figured out the best way to increase from here, so we'll just play it by ear.
Today is St Patrick's Day, and yes, we do have some Irish in us! I've watched as some other moms have used decorations on Christmas trees all year round and decided I wanted to do the same for Aaron. The same way we're trying to cram as many birthdays in as we can by celebrating monthly, I want him to see as many Christmas (or other holidays??) trees as possible. So this year, he got his own little Christmas tree that stays up in his room.
For Christmas, we decorated it with angels. I thought that very appropriate. He's our own earth angel, and I know he has so many heavenly angels watching over him.
In January, Michael and Andrew helped me make snowflakes. And the weather outside decided to go along with the theme! It really seemed to snow a lot this year. They're saying it really isn't quite up to a normal water year, but I still have a few small piles of snow on my lawn, and it's been in the 70's the last couple of days.

Will you do me a favor? Will you tell someone about Trisomy? Let them know that it happens, but also that it blesses lives. He has blessed ours so much. I hope he's blessed yours, too.
