Word up at OLW!
here we are again..... 2 weeks in between blogging! I am hoping that as school starts that I will get back in to a routine of updating a little bit more frequently! Life in the last week have been a bit of a blur and reminds me of the uncertainty of life..... Some very good friends of ours lost their daughter last week in car accident.... Brianne was a beautiful girl and will be missed by all that new her.... The word up at OLW this week was very timely.... CHOOSE.... i decided to do "choose wisely" there are so many choices that we all have to make in life and hopefully we choose wisely.... Next week the kids start back to school, Sharla in her last year of high school, COle starting high school and Shalaina starting junior high.... these years are so important for each one of them and I really hope that they make wise choices! Here is what I came up with:
Here are some recent shots of our little Kade... He is such a joy to have in all of our lives... He is still in the Childrens hospital but he is coming along now.... He is finally starting to feed good.... a little bit of a slow process but we can now see the light at the end of the tunnel.... It has been a long road for Manda and Cody but they will soon get to take him home.... we are all hoping for just one more month, so heres hoping!

He has such a sweet little personality....
I love this! So precious! That's all for this time everyone but make sure and check out OLW and get playing along if you haven't done so already! Happy Wednesday!

2 WEEKS LATER.....and word up.....
here we are 2 weeks since my last post and there isn't really all that much to blog about....hard to believe that 2 weeks from now the kids will be back at school and life will return to somewhat of a normal routine.... The last two weeks have consisted of being at the hospital everyday..... sometimes twice, taking meals and just trying to help where i can....for now that is life.... Our little Kade is getting bigger everyday and for the last few days has been starting to feed and keep it down.... well most of it anyways! He is probably close to 6 and a half pounds now so he is getting bigger, out of the preemie clothes now! Yayyyyyy! He is precious.... Manda and Cody are coping but it is long days up there, Our excitement yesterday was taking the baby, tubes, IV pole and all and sitting outside the front of the hospital enjoying a coffee! This lasted for about ten minutes until his little machine started beeping off.... oh well it was awesome while it lasted!
Wanted to share my word up for this time round! 'FAITH'

Gi picked this word over at OLW and really it couldn't have come at a better time! perfect.... we have to have FAITH to believe that it will all be fine..... easier said than done some days! The picture on this layout was the first time Manda saw him since he left for the Childrens hospital... so precious....

and this boy turned 15 on August 10th.... WOW where do the years go! Seemed like yesterday....Happy Birthday Cole!

Cole absolutely adores Kade.... My mom mentioned the other day that he looks at him with complete adoration in his eyes! So sweet!

Sweet precious boy! Check out them eyes!

and this girl can't get enough of him either! In fact she is quite ticked if she doesn't get enough 'hold' time!There is no lack of lovin this little guy in our house! This is my life for this week, mke sure you get over and play along at OLW! Have an awesome day everyone!
