For his "birthday" I took him to the ARC for the "tyke swim". He loved it. He fell asleep in the car so I was worried he was going to be grumpy. But he woke up and we got in the water and he was loving life. Didn't make a peep. The water was SO much warmer than the pool in Bismarck and the room was way warm too, so it was a perfect combo. We just sat in the water for about 30+ minutes until he decided he really was too tired to "swim", so I changed him into warm clothes and he was passed out a few seconds later. Harvey's friend Lilly and her mom came too. I love that he loves the water :)

|Car seats do NOT look comfortable!|
|He very often has the right lower lip tucked in.|
I think he's not gonna have much choice other than to be a dog lover. Rozzi seems to be taking to him more - as much as she can right now, I guess. It will be fun when he can be more of a buddy for her. Sometimes Harvey just stares off into what seems like space for a while. Then he'll kind of blink and come back to Earth again. It's funny.
|Handsome in his Sunday best.|
Haha. But since that time, he's filled it out a tiny bit more. Tanner put together my awesome running stroller and he's come out in that with me a few times and has been doing awesome!
He also got his hearing tested on March 24. He failed on his right side in the hospital so we had to do some follow up. He passed with flying colors and he cooperated by staying asleep and quiet during it. Not terribly impressive as it took all but 5 minutes to do.
Here's a "few" more random pics of his last month of life.
|He has an umbilical hernia. Hopefully that will close up on it's own without needing surgery!|
|Unfortunately this is a common part of life too.|
|Hanging out with dad. Even though he goes to bed late he's usually pretty fun right before he's about to fall asleep.|
|Love my little buddy!|
