Cade Starts Indoor Soccer

Thanks to all for your supportive comments from my last couple of posts.  It's kind of cool for me to see my progression from posting about complaining about weight gain and the feeding tube, etc, to posting more meaty recovery-oriented posts.  Cuz this is the stuff that really matters, you know?

Not much has been going on in my world this week.  On Monday Cade started his indoor soccer league, so it was fun to go watch him play.  My son is not the star of the team, but that's not why we signed him up - we did it so that he could get some self-confidence and have fun and interact with some kids his age.  Anyway, it was really fun to see him progress from his first ever soccer game last fall.  In that game, he wouldn't even play - said he was too scared, and eventually, when he did start to play, he wouldn't ever touch the ball.  This time around, he did great.  He still shies away from the ball, and isn't very anxious to get in the thick of things and score a goal or anything, but he kicked the ball 9 times (yes we counted!) and he smiled and laughed a lot, and really, that's all I care about.  It really is.

We've already signed him up for spring soccer, and pretty soon here we're going to sign him up for karate.  He said he wants to learn "moves like a ninja," and how can I deny him that?  Really, I'm just thrilled that he is coming out of his shell a little bit and is actually wanting to try some new things.  Makes my little mama heart happy.

Mila is doing well too, but I'm not going to post much about her, because I'll be posting her 6 month update in a couple of days, so I'll save it all til then.  But she still pretty much rocks my world.  As I speak she is conked out on the sofa and half-snoring like my cat.  I love that girl!

I'm off to dietary in a few.  Not even worried about it because I did absolutely everything that was asked.  This whole compliance thing; what a novel idea!  I actually eat and do what was asked of me!  WHO WOULD HAVE EVER THOUGHT THAT'S HOW YOU RECOVER????  Heh.

Okay, I'm out.  This was boring, I apologize.  Just wanted to brag about my boy for a bit.  I'm proud of him.

I think Karate is so good for kids! J loves it. It helps them build self-confidence and discipline if you get the right teacher. I read your last post too and I have to say that is one reason I'm thankful not to have any girls yet. So awesome of you to be determined to end it with you!

So Racher told me about your blog a couple of weeks ago - because she told me to read the CFC posts about being locked up lol, anyway - I am addicted/aka strangely stalking your blog now! You are such an awesome writer and an inspiration - for real - not talking crazy! :) AND - I love the picture in this post with your baby girl - you are both beautiful and your eyes look very happy. Okay - I probably have sufficiently freaked you out with my stalking skills for the day..... you are great! :)
