Two years old...its almost too much for me to wrap my mind around. Our little miracle, our blessing is two! There was a time when I begged God for two minutes with him..I just wanted to see him and tell him how much I loved him and how hard I fought for him. Then I begged for two days, two weeks, two months....but I never imagined on that cold day in January, 2011 that we would be blessed with two years. And now I want two lifetimes with Xavier...I have become very very greedy!
In the weeks leading up to his second birthday, Xavier had a developmental spurt. He can now sign 10 words, including thank you, dog and bubbles. He is walking much better, thanks to him sure step braces that he wears on his ankles. He is so close to walking without support. He has been standing independently, coloring everyday, using his magna doodle and clapping at EVERYTHING!!! He is such a joy and a pleasure to send the day with. His new favorite thing to do is to draw with sidewalk chalk.
We are doing our best to make the most of what little summer Xavier will have. After his surgery, which will be on June 19th...(I can't be 100% sure, but I heard that he will be first case that morning), he will have many restrictions that will limit his activity. He will not be able to be out in the heat and humidity, he will not be able to be submerged in water for 6-8 weeks and we will not be able to pick him up under the arms for 6-8 (that will be near impossible). We are asking everyone who loves and supports Xavier to wear their Team Xavier T shirts on the day of surgery...OR if you do not have a Team X shirt (shame on you..LOL) then please wear RED and BLACK that day to show your support. PLEASE send your pictures to my email (firstname.lastname@example.org) OR post them on my facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/jlynn.ross.1 or Xavier's facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/TeamXtremeFriendsFamilyAndFansOfXavierThomasRoss
Thank you all for the love and support you have shown us. We need all the love and positive energy we can get.
Heart Mom and Heart Kids!!
