Brennan's Journey

The support Brennan has received is overwhelming and incredibly humbling. There is a growing number of people who are asking us how they can help Brennan through his journey and our main focus and priority continues to be prayer for Brennan, his overall health and for the doctors. But so many people are wanting to help even more. For those that feel led to help Brennan financially, a "donate" button is now available. It is linked directly to a special account for Brennan and his long road ahead. Any amount is greatly appreciated. I wish there were words to express our gratitude for all of the support and prayers B is receiving. Thank you to all and God Bless.

YEAH!!! It's a GIRL!!! We would have been happy either way, of course. It is going to be a whole new experience for us with a little girl running around. I think Brennan will be a great big brother and be very protective of his little sister. I get emotional just writing about it. :) We saw the specialist yesterday. It was a very long and detailed ultrasound. The ultrasound tech. did the first ultrasound and the Dr. came in and did the second ultrasound. He pretty much checked EVERYTHING. It was amazing to see every detail of our baby. Everything from her different heart chambers, her toes, her kidneys, to her ears. Everything looked great too!!!
Now Joel and I need to work on some girl names :)

18 months old ALREADY!

Our little boy is 18 months old already. Time sure does go by fast. He wasn't in the best mood when it was picture time, but when he saw the toys to sit on... he loved it. So, we got a couple good pictures!

Airport Time!

Brennan went on a field trip today!!!... well sort of :) We went to visit my brother, John, at his work. He's been there almost 2 months and it's an amazing job! He is Flight Coordinator at TWC Aviation in Van Nuys. We got a tour of the hanger with all the planes. Brennan was in AWE. He was amazed by everything. We got to meet some people that John works with and Brennan made his way running up and down the halls. If I keep taking Brennan here and he loves it every time... we might have to start saving up for Pilot school :)
