Poor Oliver is going to have to wait another month to have his tonsils and adenoids removed. He is still ill and getting worse, so we thought it best to put the surgery off. Unfortunately, the next available slot isn't until June. Hopefully he will be healthy by then.
In other Oliver news, he said "oh" last night, as in "oh no". He signs this by putting both hands on his head whenever something falls or breaks. But for the first time he said "oh". We have never heard him make this sound before, so we were thrilled. He loves to throw a ball, but be careful because he will stand right in front of you when he does it. And he is learning to catch. We have also started working with his grasp on a crayon and he is beginning to scribble. I am so proud of my little guy.
We often think that we were lucky to find out about Oliver's diagnosis so early. It was such a struggle with Waverly. We didn't know if we were paranoid first time parents or if there was something actually wrong. We would get so frustrated with her inability to do the things her playmates were doing. But with Oliver, we have been able to adjust our expectations. We can celebrate his little accomplishments, without constantly focusing on all of the ways he is different from his peers.
