God is Amazing

God is Amazing! Claire is doing wonderful. After my last post Claire also suffered from collapsed lungs. However after clearing the hurdle the doctors were able to take her off her venilator and slowly the tubes are coming out. My cousin called me yesterday to say, "we heard her cry"- what a wonderful sound. I got a text this morning that said Alicia was able to hold Claire this morning for the first time since she was born. I bet Claire will never be put down again. Thank you so much for all your prayers and keep them coming. Things are looking to be going up for her finally- God is so GOOD!

prayer request

My cousin, Alicia, needs your prayers VERY BAD and so does her sweet baby girl, Claire. Alicia gave birth to Claire Tuesday night at around 6pm, the delivery went very well and everything seemed to be perfect for their family. However, early Wed. morning Claire was luckily in the nursery and nurse noticed her turning blue. Long story short Claire has a condition called Transposition of the Great Arteries; her blood can not travel properly and she is not receiving enough oxygen before it is distributed to her body. She had a stent put in yesterday afternoon and everything went well. Her color is coming back and she already looks better my cousin said. Friday morning at 7am she will have major open heart surgery where they will reroute her major arteries to her heart. It is so great that doctors can do such things as this. We are all confident Claire has the best physicans there is but even better she has the GREATEST physican ever on her side, I am confident God will protect her. Please keep Alicia, her husband, Andrew, and Claire in your prayers.

I took over the blog again

My mommy told me I could do another blog post (for those of you {aka my mom} that don't understand today's post will be the voice of Aiden). I wanted you, mommy's readers, to see what I do on the weekends:

I give mommy love for her birthday, stand up on a bench so I can make daddy nervous I might fall,

eat out with my daddy's family (my mommy says they are the best in laws ever but I don't know what in laws means),
take pictures with my cousins (I usually throw a fit because when I do that mommy puts that camera up)hang out with my best friend, Will,
play on my slide with him, share my swing with him, and I even say his name all weekend long for more practice next time he comes over. I ride my 4-wheeler,try on Daddy's shoes,
take them for a test walk (now I see why mommy has been searching for me some of these things they are really comfortable), but mostly I just chill in my chair and listen to mommy whisper to daddy, "isn't he the cutest baby in the world."

Happy Birthday Mommy!

Aiden's new sandbox
Yesterday Aiden had his 18 month shots and saw a new doctor at a new clinic. We (well I really like him)- Aiden not so much. The doctor confirmed something I had been worried about with Aiden's circumcision- it was going to need to be done again. Luckily the doctor was able to pull his skin back and we should be able to keep it that way if we take GOOD care of it and hopefully not have to have it done again. I know thats a little too much info but I wanted my readers to know we got a good doctor this time. :)
His stats:
24 lbs. (50 percentile)
they didnt tell me his height but it's 75th percentile
doing great with his speech and we are still working hard on the eating thing.

On another note:
I woke this morning to Aiden saying "Birthday Mommy Birthday". He was sure to remind me today was my birthday and how glad I have him to help me celebrate. Brandon and Aiden surprised me last night with a new right hand ring with Aiden's birth stone. VERY PRETTY! More birthday pics to come!

THANKS for the prayers, my baby is back to normal. I have another extremely hilarious bath tub video but I didnt realize Aiden's private area was visible in a clip so i will not be posting it but I will get another one of Aidens bath time routine.
