Brody and I had a long weekend without Jordan! I don't know how all my friends that are single parents do it! I'm still tired :) Jordan joined some of his old fraternity brothers for a baseball trip. They started in Tampa going to a Rays game and then continued onto Miami for a Marlins game. He had fun, but we missed him!
Saturday, I had a garage sale. People bought a majority of my junk! Very excited to clean out a lot of the basement.
Saturday night, I joined some of my sorority sisters for a bachelorette party downtown Louisville. Brody got to hang out with Grandma and Papa Brown. While he was there, their dog, Izzy, got sprayed by a skunk! Everything smelled so bad! Poor Izzy!
Sunday, I met back up with Brody, Grandma, Papa Brown, and JoJo for lunch.
We hung out the rest of the day wishing Daddy would hurry up and come home!
Monday was my school's meet and greet. I have a three year old classroom again this year! Jordan came home Monday night.
I stated school Tuesday and Brody went to the pediatrician. He had to have a physical within 30 days of his surgery. He is 28 pounds and 31 inches tall. Big boy, but we love him!
Only a week until the Cochlear Implant surgery!!!!!!!!!!! We are soooo excited!!!!!!!

Brody has had another busy week! We have enjoyed being able to FaceTime with Aunt Sara...we miss her! We also Skyped with Grammy!
Thursday night, Great Aunt Karen and Uncle Keith stopped by for dinner. They didn't like Brody's pictures from the farm riding the Massey-Fergeson, so they brought him a John Deer tractor and hat!
Saturday, Jordan had an alumni golf tournament for his fraternity. Griffin, better known to us as McLovin, who was the best man in our wedding came down Friday night. We went out to dinner. Saturday morning we got up bright and early to head to Richmond, KY. Brody and I hit up some garage sales (awesome slide, tons of Brody clothes, and a bowling set). Then, we went back to the golf course to wait for Jordan and McLovin to finish up.
Brody entertained himself with the wind shield wipers while we waited.
We headed to Louisville afterwards to go to Nickels for Nico. It was a for a cornhole tournament to benefit the Smith Meginis foundation. It is another rare genetic condition. A little boy from my school/who Aunt Sara baby sat before she moved is Nico. Jordan and I made it past the first round, but lost in the second. Brody enjoyed getting his flirt on with Miss Nikki while we played.
Then, we headed to St. Joe's picnic (kind of like the St. Chris Festival for you Ohio people). Brody hadn't had a good nap, so we didn't last long there. Jordan was happy to leave once he won a cake :)
Sunday, Grammy and Papa Tom, met us for lunch at Wild Eggs on their way to Nashville for business. Brody loves a good omelet from there!
Monday was my last full day home with the Brody Monster before I started teacher meetings :( I've been trying to talk Jordan into letting me stay home with him, but as much as I will miss Brody, I think I would miss teaching too.
Monday night, we had his IFSP meeting. An IFSP is a plan set by his therapists to make goals for the next six months. We are backing off some of his physical therapy and adding an occupational therapist. We are also adding speech. Poor kiddo will have a lot of therapists, but I would rather have the early intervention now then have therapist follow him all of his life. We have some good therapist too! The new goals we made included walking, standing on his own, and auditorally (through only listening) identify 30 words. The last goal will be after he is implanted. Oh yeah...15 MORE DAYS UNTIL SURGERY!!!!!
