Choo Choo

So we're working on a couple of new words...puppy and choo choo! It's hilarious! We are having one problem though, Braxton has discovered how to hit people. Not a good thing!! We're trying our darndest to keep from doing that. But I think the rest of the family would have to agree that we have HIT the terrible 2's stage.

We were supposed to go to the Cook Children's NICU reunion, but because of the swine flu it has been cancelled :( We were really excited about getting to see all of our friends, but I would rather see everyone healthy. I just pray that something will be done to cure this.

The Waco March for Babies went amazing! We had a great turn out, and people really had a lot of fun! I hope we can pull this off again next year! Thank you to everyone who came out, and to everyone who donated to this cause!

Luke's going on a church fishing trip tomorrow for the weekend so it'll be me and Braxton! WOO! haha He'll be a good baby, we'll probably go watch a baseball game, weather permitting.

Thanks for checking up on us!

French Fries!!

Well, we figured out a food Braxton likes!! FRENCH FRIES!!! He ate like an entire thing of french fries tonight for dinner! And almost a whole milk shake! This was after not eating hardly anything all day! I guess we might be buying french fries and a milk shake every night. But hey whatever works. You can definitely tell he's lost weight, or gotten taller, but his little belly he was getting is not there any longer. He has learned how to run, it's so funny! He runs especially fast when you catch him doing something he KNOWS he's not supposed to be doing. He also ate 3 miniature milky way bars tonight, he had chocolate all over his face. It was hilarious! I'm hoping this week goes much better than last week (pneumonia). He's almost 100% congestion free, his nose is still running just a little bit.

We got a nice surprise tonight...Luke isn't working out of town this week!!! I think we both needed this, he's been gone a lot lately and it was beginning to take its toll on us. He just walked through the door, and Braxton's face just absolutely lit up, it was so cute!! They got to play outside, and just have a good time.

I guess that's about it for now, nothing major is going on.

Getting over pneumonia

Well, we did have pneumonia at the beginning of the week, but luckily a week later, it's pretty much gone! Still a little congestion, but not near what he had! We are very thankful it did not turn into anything serious! Braxton hasn't been eating real well lately, we're not sure what's going on, but he won't take more than about 2 bites of something, and sadly, it's baby food. He won't hardly touch anything that's real food. It's just crazy because after he got the stomach flu he started eating anything and everything in sight, now nothing. The only thing keeping him alive is his Boost Kids Essentials and some goldfish. We're just at a point where we don't know what to do! I just feel like when I try to explain it to the doctors no one really believes me that he does not eat. I'm not making it up or exaggerating, the child just does not eat. I am starting to worry just a little about his vocabulary, but I still think we're doing pretty good. Braxton's so smart, he catches on to stuff so quickly it just blows your mind. We are just thankful everyday for our blessing. Luke's been working out of town almost every week for the past almost 5 weeks now. It's tough not having him here, but he's doing the best he possibly can for our family. We miss him so much, but it's so nice when he's here. That's really about it, other than this semester for me is almost over!! YEA!!! But one of my summer classes starts like May 26...ARE YOU SERIOUS! Hopefully I'll survive the 12 hours I have doomed myself with! Take care, and God bless!
