Aubrey has developed quite the personality. Poor Logan is starting to get pushed around by her....hopefully she will just keep him on his toes and not trample over him. She is a great example for him to follow (skills wise), but she irritates the heck out of him. She is always in his face!! Poor boy!

As far as his hernia, it seems that his intestines are still poking out a bit and he said that he will have a surgeon look at it when Logan is 4 yrs old. He suspects that it may need to be fixed at that point.
Here are his stats, I was a little disappointed about his height. He grew less than an inch over the last 6 months and is about to fall off the chart. On one hand, it is so fun that he is such a little guy yet. I can still pick him up and it's like he is taking his time growing up....I don't mind that. But, on the other hand it is sad to see him next to kids his age. He is the size of most 18 month olds.
Height: 33 inches (1%) (75% on the DS chart!)
Weight: 28.5 pounds (27%) (95% on the DS chart!)
Logan also showed off a little at his appointment. He showed the doctor how he is trying to jump and he used a couple of words. Of course, his doctor is very proud of him and how much he changes each him he sees him.

Please watch this video and consider being a waiting child's Christmas sponsor. Reece's Rainbow has a Christmas Angel Tree Project where if you donate $35 dollars or more for a child, you will receive a beautiful porcelain photo ornament of your sponsored child to hang on your tree! This is a very special way to "share Christmas" with an orphaned child, and to make it possible for other families to afford the high cost of rescuing them from orphanages and mental institutions around the world!
If you choose to give, consider choosing Lily. Click HERE and make sure that you specify that you want to support "Zoromski Family - Lilya". Lily needs funds to be able to join her new family here in Wisconsin!

Rachel Coleman is the co-creator and host of the children's DVD and public television series Signing Time! Rachel’s oldest daughter Leah was born profoundly deaf. After learning American Sign Language (ASL), Rachel wanted to create a way for all children to learn to communicate with her daughter.
Rarely do we see individuals who believe in the power of one to change the world. Idealistic as it may seem, Rachel Coleman is just such a person. Signing Time! was developed based on her personal experiences. Rachel learned from her two daughters the power of ASL. Leah, who is deaf, showed her mother how much easier it was to have a baby that signed and could tell her what she needed. Rachel was especially excited to see how knowing ASL accelerated Leah’s spelling and vocabulary skills as she grew up. Her daughter Lucy, who was born with spina bifida and cerebral palsy, was never expected to communicate in any fashion. But by growing up in a home where ASL was the primary language, she learned to sign, found that ASL was a powerful means of physical therapy and eventually learned to speak the words she’d grown up signing. As a result, Rachel committed to share what her daughters had taught her with the world. This was the motivation behind Signing Time.
Signing Time teaches the basics of ASL to children of ALL abilities a fun and engaging way. Since the release of their first video in 2002, Signing Time has spread to customers in all fifty states and twenty different countries almost entirely by word of mouth. Parents and professionals everywhere praise the Signing Time series for opening up a world of possibilities for their children, whether they are using ASL as a means to communicate with their babies before they develop speech, or learning a second language, or even for children with special needs for whom speech is a challenge.
Signing Time's mission is to create programs and opportunities designed to dissolve the barriers that exist for children (or anyone) with disabilities.

Down syndrome awareness month does mean a lot to me...in fact, I have spent a lot of time this month planning for next October. Planning for the Fox Cities Down Syndrome Awareness Walk has kept me thinking about what is important for me and other families who love someone with Down syndrome.
Logan is doing fantastic this month! He is showing off new skills each week at gymnastics class, he is talking more each day, he is a little comedian who can make anyone laugh, he has started coming to me for hugs at random moments during the day, he loves to look at books, he loves cars, he hates bed time, he watches and signs along with his Signing Time DVDs, he loves to play with playdoh, he can draw lines and circles, he "runs" around the house with his brother and sister and he says hi to strangers at the store.
I can't wait for next month to find out what he will do next!
