My boys made my month today

We have noticed that Nathaniel has been seeing stuff the last few days, yesterday morning, he actually looked at me, not just glanced and turned away, but he looked at me!! He sits in his swing that our friend Dawn gave us and he looks at the birdies and butterflies that are on the top that spin around. He sat there for over an hour and a half today, just looking because he can! Tonight I gave Aiden a bath in their new big boy bath for the first time! On Thursday I had to take Aiden down to Children's because it looks like his fungus has turned into a yeast infection and it has taken over not only his stoma site, but it is also under the whole spot where the bag adheres to. The places where the fungus had started, the skin around that area had totally came off and was open and bleeding. So they told me to put the Nyastatin powder on it, as well as this product called a no sting barrier film. It is a little sponge with a medicine on it, that you dab on after you put the powder on, and it seals the powder to the skin and forms a barrier on the skin so when you place the bag on it, there is no more irritation. Plus if any of his stool happens to get to his skin, the barrier film will prevent it from irritating the infection and his skin! So anywho... I was giving him his bath, and the skin looked so much better tonight than it did on Thursday when we went to Children's. But after his bath I put him up on the couch and was drying him off and rubbing his head drying his hair (what little he has) and I noticed it seemed like he was looking at me?!?! I was like there is no way. So I moved a little to the right slowly, and he followed me! He followed me! Went slowly to the left, and he followed me! Kyle was sitting right there and got to experience it with me! I was so happy I couldn't stop crying! This boy has been through so much! So much. He is beating all the odds. Doing things the doctors said he may never do. So after I dried him off and dressed him, I sat there and held him while he brought his little head up, bobbing away just to look at me! My little men are so amazing! So I gave him to Kyle and he did the same thing as he did with me, he kept lifting his little head that sits on his weak little neck just to look at his daddy. Thank you boys for giving me tears of joy instead of the tears of hurt I have had this week. Thank you Lord for giving us these two wonderful, amazing, beautiful little boys.
