October through December video

We are behind on video. This compilation is from the last few months, but not Christmas. Items include:

  • Loki gets a car from Bo for his birthday
  • Loki gets a hospital, also on his birthday, and remembers that Papaw works with helicopters
  • Around and round = "rond" (with a hard "r")
  • first birthday candles
  • second birthday candles and singing
  • on a rocking horse with a strange head and shoulder shake
  • vacuuming the floor (this is a bit loud)
  • dancing
  • dancing again
  • Cleaning = "schoonmaken" which sounds like "skone mahkuh"

Thank you! I loved hearing Loki's little "yes" replies. Foxen danced along to the dancing parts. Great work!

Loki--you are SO big! "helicoper" is quite a word, little guy! Thanks for posting this, mom and dad--it made my day.

About Loki Sky

Loki Sky is a special little man. He was a very early micropreemie, weighing only 610 grams (1 lb, 5 oz) after 24 weeks, 3 days gestation, born to an American Father and a Dutch Mother in Berkeley, California on October 18, 2008.

On January 11, 2009, while still in the hospital NICU, his one kidney stopped working. It was repaired after three surgeries. After spending time in three hospitals in three cities, Loki came home on February 17. He struggled with eating, and then stopped in July, leading to 8 days in the hospital, a failure-to-thrive diagnosis, and a NG feeding tube. On October 10, a minor surgery installed a G feeding tube. Another procedure replaced it with a new one, and then again with a Mic-Key button in Jan. 2010.

In August 2010, he and his parents moved to the Netherlands.
