Standing Proud!

Well I put Jaron to bed as usual the other night and went in later to find out what all the banging was about. And this is how I found him. BUSTED! He has evidently learned to stand up in the bed now and was slapping the wall. You might say..."How funny" Well it was for a minute until I figured out that he will no longer be laying in his bed. He stands up right after I lay him down every time. It's a battle of wits now. I lay him down leave the room and back up he goes. Over and over until he is so tired he can't hold his eyes open and he gives up. Mommy wins again.
Well this was just adorable. Jaron is wearing his bathrobe after a fresh bubble bath. My boys are adorable....The girls are gonna be chasing them...I can see it now.
And today was a big day for him too. Not only can he pull up in the bed with rails to help. He pulled up, from sitting down, to the coffee table. I couldn't believe it. He is learning so quickly. He is crawling better and better. I'll get a picture of him soon. Thanks for reading.

Helping Daddy Outside

Well Chris was doing some yard work the other day and Jacob was helping. He asked for the broom and this is what he did while Chris raked. He was so funny! And when Daddy was trimming the bushes he came into the house and went in his room in search of his plyers. He got them (plastic) and proceeded outside as serious as he could and went straight for the bush and trimmed hedges right beside his daddy! So cute! I didn't catch that one. I couldn't leave the window to get the camera I didn't want to miss it. He is growing up so fast! I love my "Big J".

Easter Sunday

Well I tried to get a good picture of the boys together in their matchin easter sunday clothes. As you can tell I couldn't get one with both of them smiling and looking at the camera at the same time. I guess the bottom one is the best of the three. They were so cute Sunday. Jacob got a hair cut as you can tell from the last picture I posted. He does great sitting pretty still for Granna while she cuts his hair. I cannot believe my baby boy is about to be 4 years old in 5 months!!!

Growing so fast!

Wow how time flys!!! I am in shock at how quickly things seem to go as I get older. It seems like just last week I brought Jaron home from the hospital struggling to feed him and getting no sleep. The sleep is a little better and we do still have some feeding difficulty but he is getting so big so fast. I can't believe we are about to go for his next surgery in 17 MORE DAYS!!! He is right on the verge of crawling. I will post pictures when he masters it. Thanks for everyones prayers. Gotta go he's waking up for a bottle.

Ready for Church

Here is a picture of the boys this morning all dressed for church. They have a few matching shirts and we like to dress them the same. Wow Jaron looks so much like Jacob. We are counting down the days until surgery. I know this recovery is going to be harder. He didn't wear the arm restraints as much this time because he kept his fingers out of his mouth and I watched him closely. But the next surgery will be external and I think he is going to want to itch and pull at the tapes he will have to wear. So the arm restraints will most likely be very necessary. We'll see. Jaron is gaining weight good too. He was 18 lbs. about 2 weeks ago. So he is almost average now. He isn't quite used to his palate yet. When something touches it like food or biter biscuit he gags so it will take some time for him to get used to it I guess. Anyway, thanks for reading and keep him in your prayers.

Brother is Catching up!

Well Jaron is growing so big I think he will be catching up with his brother soon. Jacob hasn't gained much weight in the last year. He can't get enough of Jaron. They take a bath together now and Jacob loves to brush Jaron's hair. He is trying to teach him to say stuff like "Uh oh". Some more good news for Jacob, he learned John 3:16. He can quote the whole verse. I love it! He is so smart.
