Turn Your Volume Up...

Today I heard a song that makes me think of Ava. My friend told me about this song but I had never heard it, well until today when it came on the radio on my way to pick up Kaden from school. It definitely got the tears going. I downloaded it onto the blog. Scroll down to the bottom of this page and you will see a purple box with different songs on it. Click on "Sissy's Song" by Alan Jackson (#9). Listening to this song makes me sad and happy at the same time. It is hard to explain, but my heart feels "warm" listening to it. It is like he is singing this song about Ava, as if he knew her. We miss you baby girl.

I started back to work yesterday. It was a long day. I could not wait to get home. At least the week seems to be going by pretty quickly. I was suppose to start Monday but we had to take Kaden to Children's Mercy. His mickey button (g-tube site) is horrible. He has group A strep, but the granuloma (spelling???) tissue is raw and bleeds all of the time. It will probably have to be surgically removed. Poor guy.

As of Brody, well he continues to grow...like a weed. My little 6 week old is in 6-9 month clothing. Today when I came home from work, I was just in awe looking at him laying on the couch. He is so long. He doesn't look like a 6 week old at all. Kaden is doing really well with him. He is pretty helpful, I think his favorite thing is to help mommy burp Brody but he also helps carry his carseat and feed him. He is in to giving him kisses, but most of the time it takes us to ask him to kiss Brody. So he does, without hesitation. What a great big brother Kaden makes : ).

Well, I hope you took time to listen to this song. I know when I hear it I will think of my Ava.

I'll have to come back and listen tomorrow, my husband is sleeping next to me right now ;)

Thanks for the upate I was starting to wonder about you! You must be busy I thought, and sure enough, you're back to work. I can't believe how big Brody's getting, that's awesome!

Hey have you heard from Kaci, mythreesons lately? She's just completely stopped blogging?? I was worried.

I heard that song on the radio for the first time not too long ago, and I thought of you all too. It's a very sweet song.

Kaden sounds just like my Caden. With the kisses and how he helps. I'm glad they both like to be big brothers so much!

That song is so precious...I had not heard it yet so I am glad to have it come from you (my fellow angel heart mommy)! I know it would have made me pull to the side of the road if I just heard it on the radio.
Keeping you in our prayers...we just started shopping for another baby boy & I am feeling at peace with it.
Love to y'all~ Rebecca

I'm glad everyone's doing well. :o) That song brought tears to my eyes. Losing a child is my absolute worst fear, and I can't imagine the constant pain. ((HUG))

that is such a good song! and now when I hear it I will be thinking of Ava too!
hope kaden's gtube gets better! does he have super sensitive skin around it? Tayte does- but only by the gtube, it's not sensitive any where else!
I would love having a big baby! I love big, buff babies! maybe because my biggest was 5 lb 9 oz.

Since you're back at work does that mean you decided not to open a daycare? I'm trying to decide what to do after this one arrives. I wish you could just get paid to be a stay-at-home mom!

Back to work already,,,,wow. How the time has flown.
Hugs to you.....

I wanted to tell you that I listen to your song and he makes me think of my little ones that I lost at birth I had 3 stillbirths and 1 miscarrage and just listening it made me cry. I have a little girl now and I love her with all my heart she is going to be 17 months old the time just go by so fast. I wish the best for your little boys and I will keep you all in my thoughts and prayers. From Kim and family

I just listened to Sissy's Song for the first time and the tears came! That is such a beautiful song! I'm still in love with "The Dance" though too! I can't believe you had to go back to work already! Who's watching Brody? I hope Kaden feels better! I can't wait to see you all! We miss you! Love you!

Hey there stranger...

I loved that song and see where you think of Ava.

I wish I would have known you were at CMH. We have been there Monday, Tuesday, and today. But I guess if I'm not blogging than that is what I get. haha.

Brody seems to be doing really well and I can't believe it has already been 6 weeks. Where did that time go?

I'm praying that Kaden's staph and site get better for him. Good luck. If you still have my number, can you give me a call. I've got a lot of questions about the mickey button. Sounds like that is where Carson is heading.

Talk to you soon and even though I haven't been blogging, I have been thinking of your family often!

It's an amazing song, I had trouble listening to it, Stormy wanted to know why I have tears in my eyes..sometimes songs say it all. Hope Kaden is getting better and all is well for you guys,

Oh I love that song and you are right...Ava that song is about you baby girl.

I bawled like a baby. But so worth it. She is so missed.

I cant believe baby Brody is in 6-9 mo clothing...but big is healthy and that is a good thing.

I will pray for Kaden and his button site.

Love ya and hope you are doing ok.
