"Not flesh of my flesh, Nor bone of my bone, But still miraculously my own. Never forget for a single minute,
You didn't grow under my heart - but in it"

We caught the bug!

Last Wednesday Trinity and I went with a few people down town to deliver food to the homeless. Well we enjoyed it so much that the whole family wants to do it. Then a friend called and her daughter wanted to do it too! So tonight we are all going down to pass out more. The kids were excited & Paul was excited!






















It is amazing what 20.00 can do.

Pool Therapy

Everyday during the work week the kids and I go to the pool. Each time we go I do speech therapy or PT with Noah. I figured why not!

So we get there and get in the water and I start pointing and saying different words. Water, Hi Yah! (think karate), bucket, clouds, go go go, yee haw, woowho!, I say the kids names, I jibber or babble and say different sounds like mamama, bababa, cacaca, dadada fafafafa. Well it is working because he talks more and more now.

He said clouds, yeehaw, Hi yah!, mama, dada, go go go, woowho, Trinity, AJ, and jibbers. Yesterday we did some PT because he seemed to need more sensory imput than words. He was very quiet but he loved spinning in the water. He walked all around the pool until his head was almost under. Silly boy!

We army crawled in swallow water and crawled until it was up to his head again. We sat and he laid on me while we watched the bucket dump water, he went for a swim with his sisters and he even was under a mushroom looking thing while water poured down. He even did the wheel barrel walk.

He and I always have fun and he is always learning. It is great. Paul said to tell his therapists to just come out to the pool haha.

I am so proud of my wee man. The first video is last month so thats why the gtube is still there. But I love that video so I had to share it again :) Second video is from yesterday.

Noah's Graduation

Today Noah graduated! Thats what the doctors office said after they took his gtube out. Yes you read that right, after 22 months Noah is now tube free!!! I went into the doctors office fully expecting to fight, but there was no fight!! She was so excited to be taking it out. I cried. I told her I was going to and I did, she said it was ok. If you would have ask me a year and a half ago when he was vomiting daily, refusing anything by mouth and a hyperactive gag if this day would come I would have looked at you like you were crazy. Now it is here. Oh and before I forget he is 25lbs 10oz and 35 inches long :)  Check it out:

In an instant


We went to Hurst to see fireworks. Charidy lost her ring and while we were all looking for it Noah wandered off. In a sea of thousands he was gone in an instant. I was terrified. Five of us adults all went off to look for him. I ran to the staff. My son is missing...did I really just say that? He's in a red shirt and blue shorts, he's two, but he is tiny so he will look like a baby. Noah. Noahs his name..he has a grown in mohawk and a gtube. Lord please no matter what keep him safe. God bring him back. Walk beside him. Stay with him until we find him. The man said he's two he couldn't have gotten far, stay with me I have the police coming. I turn around into an ocean of red shirts and blue shorts. Why wasn't I more careful? I know he wanders. I saw Pauls dad..no noah...where's my husband..Lord please. I want to drop to my knees but I need to find him. I turn and see the girls Trinitys hand is over her mouth, charidys crying. She must blame herself we were looking for her ring. My eyes scan the crowd why God why can't I see my boy? This can't be how it ends. Please Lord. Please. Someones calling my name...who...he's got him...he's got him...where? Where? Thank you Lord. Paul got him. He wanted to dance and a woman found him and was holding him by the stage. 50 yards. That's how far he got. 50 yards in minutes. Now I have to let my grip loosen. I have to sit before my shakey legs fall out from underneath me. I have to go comfort my crying kids.
Thank you God
