A Growing Boy

It's so hard to believe how big Isaac is getting! In another month he will be 3 1/2 and the time just continues to fly. After staying at the very bottom of growth percentiles for the last 2 years, he is finally starting to grow!! Many of his pants are too short and we had to go to size 10 in shoes!! It has been so hard to believe how he has shot up all of the sudden.
Isaac continues to struggle with his asthma. Right now with all the pollen and other allergens in the air he is really struggling. He has dark circles under his eyes and looks very weak eyed almost every day. We are still on 4 different medicines daily to combat this along with breathing treatments via nebulizer as needed. Right now we are doing nebulizer treatments every 4 hours because his cough is more like a bark.
Isaac's way with words continues to amaze me as well. Last week he told me that our dog "Chewy Louie" was really getting on his nerves and that he wished I would stop aggravating him because it was really making him angry. Whew! What fun 3 year olds are.
Isaac still won't sleep in his bed, he says its not comfortable and that he just doesn't feel like sleeping in his bed. It seems he likes our bed better. The good news is he will go in there and go to sleep by himself now. In November, before I got sick, Isaac refused to sleep in our bed or even lay in it. He was a big boy he professed and needed to sleep in his bed by himself. But, ever since I've been sick it's like he's scared to be too far away from us. I love snuggling with him, but I hate that it comes because he is worried.
