Baby Christian

UPDATE: Christian did wonderful and the surgery was a success! They were able to save his valve! This means that there is hardly any chance of a second surgery! It is day 3 and there have been hardly any set back except a minor peeing problem. He may be moving to the step down unit tomorrow! He is moving right along...what a miracle! Please continue to pray that his recovery continues in the right direction. The way things are looking, he will probably be home for Christmas!
Baby Christian needs YOUR prayers!

Christian has the congenital heart defect, Tetralogy of Fallot (same as Madi). He is having his Open Heart Surgery this Tuesday the 15th. Please pray for the surgeon, doctors, nurses and his parents, Scott and Rachel. Pray for a successful surgery and an uneventful recovery. You can visit his care pages HERE. Thanks to all you prayer warriors!

14 months!

I can't believe that Madison is 14 months already! She is growing up too fast! She is a regular toddler now and I am getting my workout! She is getting so good at walking and is trying to run too. She babbles all day long, it's so cute. She is going to be a big talker, like her Momma...poor Chris! Her vocab. is: Hi, bye-bye, up, mama, MOM! (when she is mad!), dada, papa, no, two, four, eight, ball, uh-oh. She also knows what a dog, cow, monkey, bear, lion and fish say/do. Pretty impressive I must say!! Christmas should be fun with her this year. She loves all the decorations...she gets really excited, says "Oooo!" and runs up to them. My mom has taught her to only touch the tree with one finger and she does really well with it. I love this little girl with all my heart!
Her new favorite toy...the piano!
SO talented!

Madison with her cousins, Carly and Landon, visiting Santa.

They all loved him! Madison was stroking his beard! (good thing it was real!)

Brushing her teeth! She hates her little toothbrush, so I got her a big one to play with! I am definitely not going to complain that she like to brush!!

Sticking her tongue out!
