Happy Halloween

We had our annual trunk-or-treat again this year. We actually were able to go to 2 trunk or treats because our ward and our old ward were on different nights. I think Tyler had a great time. He was able to run around and get candy. He mentioned several times when he would see some costumes how they were scary. Tyler has a very tender heart. Overall, I think he had a great time. Katie was just along for the ride.

Family Home Evening

Last night for family home evening we
went and got a couple of pumpkins
so Tyler could paint them. He found a
pumpkin for Katie, mom and dad, and himself.
He was so excited to paint it. It started out fairly
clean and he had a nice face on it but then, well
you can see the pictures for yourself.
He had a great time.

We tried to put Katie's footprint and hand print
on her pumpkin but it just smeared and you couldn't
tell it was her foot print so Brad wrote Katie Bug
on it.

Maybe next year we will try carving the pumpkins.

Happy Day!

This is a great day! Katie went to see Dr Panesar, her pulmonologist, and we got great news. She is no longer on the apnea monitor, no longer on sodium chloride, aldactazide, and more importantly her oxygen. We have been waiting for this day for a long time. Okay really only 2 months but it seems like forever. This means when we travel one less bag to take with us and we don't need to worry about not having enough oxygen. Now we just need her to eat so we can get rid of the feeding tube. It is really nice to carry a baby around not attached to anything.

how i have grown

So I was sitting here thinking I wished I had taken pictures of Katie when she was in the NICU with an object that I could compare how she has grown. As I looked at my finger I realized, I did! When Katie was 7 days old I put my ring on her arm. She was so tiny, it fit like a bracelet. Now 5 months later, look how she has grown.

Thank heavens for little miracles.

Little Princess

Katie continues to grow and get bigger every day. At her weekly weight check she weighed 9 lbs 13 oz. She has gained 3 lbs in 2 months. We hope she will soon eat all her feeds from a bottle so we can get rid of the NG tube. During the day, she is able to come off her oxygen. She is a very cute baby when there is nothing on her face. She has the cutest smile.

Our Little Doctor

Tyler loves to play doctor. Every chance he gets he is trying to listen to someones heartbeat. Katie was the lucky patient this day. She was very patient with him. He wanders around the house with his stethoscope in his ears.
