Update on baby K

Baby K is doing great.

He is still in the hospital and has been diagnosed with a treatable heart condition, but he continues to amaze everyone and has shown himself to be a real little fighter.

He will be two weeks old tomorrow and he is no longer on any machine support. His parents are even talking about a not too distant day when he will be able to go home! I've seen pictures of him and he looks healthy and beautiful.

Thank you for your continued prayers and support. They mean alot to me and my family.

Baby K was born only 8 gestational days earlier than the boys and the trials he and his parents have faced make me mindful of how lucky I was that my boys were so healthy and hearty. We were and continue to be truly blessed.

MIA Mommy...9 Month Check-up

Bonham is officially no longer the 'little' brother. He weighed in at 18lb 14oz, and measured 29" long. Brewer weighed a mere 18lb 13oz and measured 28 and 5/8"...

Ok, ok, so they are practically the same, but considering historical weights and measures, Bonny had a serious growth spurt this quarter.

They are in the 75th percentile for height and 25th for weight. The doctor says they are doing great.

I am so proud of my boys and of me and Jon for doing a great job!

For those of you who don't know...this is the time of year where my job takes over my entire life. I've cut back my overtime hours since the boys came, but I'm still terribly busy so my blogging has slowed. I'll post when I can, but just know that things will pick up here again in a few weeks after my projects are done and I am able to come up for air.

If you pray, please pray for baby 'K'

My baby nephew was born this past Friday, about 6-7 weeks premature, we think...we were not sure of the due date...

He's in the hospital (been life-flighted 2x in 3 days) and because of her own complications from the birth, his mom was just able to join him today. He's having trouble breathing and has fluid around his heart that they are draining.

I want to be respectful of putting too many details out on the internet, bc I haven't asked permission from my brother, but baby 'K' is the son of my brother and his wife. He has 2 older sisters who are 12 (twins), and many aunts, uncles, cousins and grandparents who love him very much.

Please keep him, his family and those caring for them in your prayers. I pray his mother's voice is just what he needs to help him be strong and get better.

Super Sunday! Super Busy...

Hi all. I have been way too busy lately to write Super Sunday as it was intended...sorry. I hope things will calm down. soon. alot. (sigh)

Today, I did get alot done around the house, including cleaning out the fridge, which was deceptively and amazingly full, considering that once I cleaned it, it was bare and I had to go to the grocery store.

I also cleaned out the notorious stacks of mail and dealt with alot of open paperwork items...renewed registrations on cars, made a folder of pix for my digital frame at work, etc. And tonight I went and restocked the fridge. Much more to do, but this was certainly progress.

I also met the newest addition to my boys' 'gang', my friend Christie's son, who turned one week old today...he is adorable - a total doll - and a long-awaited blessing. He's our fifth little buddy to be born this month. I am so excited that my boys will have so many pals whose parents I already like. I may never have to widen my social circle ever again if things keep working out so famously. (Bad, Lisa!)

We also had a fun time with the boys this weekend - especially today!

We played on the splash pad in the morning, Bonham figured out that the seat on the Quattro Rider opens and closes (and opens and closes and opens and closes and opens and closes and....), and Brew played in the tub after our first ever 'fake-out' by the boys...amazing how much it looks like a blow-out if you can get your brother to puke his sweet potatoes down your back!

In the evening Granny and Grand-dad watched the boys so we could go to church. Then we met the family for dinner and went for sno-cones after. Wow - I get tired all over again just thinking about it.

I think everything else I want to do will have to wait for another day. I am off to join Jon, who has already turned in. G'night all!

Phabulous Phamily Photos from the Phourth (3x fast!)

Pictures of the kiddos from the 4th. One of the boys in all their adorable glory and another with their twin cousins, Kendall and Kourtney, and their singleton cousin, Lili.
Two more singletons are on the way for our family- both of my sisters-in-law are pregnant. My dad and his wife will have 6 grandkids aged 2 and under soon...eight grandkids total - Yipes.
There are going to be some WILD family get-togethers in our future!

Dear Brewer,

Crying it out is miserable - whether you are 9 months old or 32. But sometimes it is all you can do. And in the morning, you do feel better. I love you, son.

It's a NEW CAR!!! (cue the music from 'The Price is Right')
Do you think one of my kids seems a little bit more excited than the other one?
