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.

Oswald Fans

Brennan is introducing his sister to the world of Oswald... his FAVORITE show. I really don't get it, but there is something about the blue octopus that just captures his attention. He has about 15 books of Oswald and he can name every character. He even walks around saying lines from the books and tv show. It's funny the things that they get into. First the Wiggles, then Blues Clues, now Oswald... what next?

We honestly never thought we would be able to use the word "relaxed" when talking about our sweet Faith. She was always so tense, stressed, irritated, fussy, or screaming non-stop... She would never just "chill" or lay still and relax. Well... as you can tell by the picture, she is getting MUCH better! Thank you friends and family for all your prayers and encouragement. She still has some fussy moments and crying fits, but NOTHING LIKE BEFORE. I think her colic is leaving her system... Praise God!!! It was a hard couple months. Just a note, if you ever hear of a mother talking about her child having colic... give her a big hug and offer a shoulder to cry on. Also, let her know that it doesn't last forever. I didn't believe it then, but we are "seeing the light!"
Just had to share the awesome news!

Watch me GROW!!!

For Brennan's first year, we took a picture of him each month in his monkey chair. When I get all the pictures on my new computer, I'll post them. It is so fun to see how much they grow and change in the first year.
Our little peanut Faith is 2 1/2 months old. We have continued the tradition with a lady bug chair. Already she is changing.

Swaddle Siblings

Our sweet Faith needs constant swaddling throughout the day. It seems to be the best way to calm her down during her many crying fits. Big brother B wanted in on the swaddling... this picture just makes me laugh :)
