Sleeping Is Good

Yesterday we learned that Asher has mild forms of two different kinds of sleep apnea.  They are mild enough not to be troubling to the doctor.  What is of greater concern is that he is not able to get into and stay in deep sleep.  Asher seemed to want to confirm this by waking up and staying up for 3 hours last night.  There is some question as to whether the environment and condititions of the sleep study itself played a roll in the lack of REM but we have a consultation scheduled so we can get some questions answered and find out what we can do to help him SLEEP!  It is a really good thing, Asher, if only you would realize it!

Asher continues to make leaps in his development.  He is standing a lot more, signing more, making more varied sounds and curious about everything.  A few days ago he surprised us by climbing up into a kid chair and then standing up on top of it, holding on to the stair rail behind it.  Not safe, but it's nice to see him showing initiative in exploring. :-)

Today, he heard the noise of our neighbor's snow blower.  He got himself right up on that chair and started shouting hello to him and knocking on the window.  He was pretty proud of himself.  Now, how to keep Curious Asher from hurting himself in all his curiosity.
