Quick Update...

Tomorrow will be the finish of the first week of Kindergarten for Kaden. He is doing well and says he likes it. He must, the only way I can get him up for school is to ask him if he is ready to go to school. Yesterday he was off the vent for 10 hours STRAIGHT!!! He is doing great. Today was another 8 hours with about a 45 min break back on the vent. What a big boy. We might get rid of the vent yet!!! I am so proud of him...I know I say that a lot, but I am. His walking is getting so much better too!!! Quick story about our conversation tonight...
We were reading our bedtime stories, one being The True Story of the Three Little Pigs (given to him by one of his nurses). He kept pointing to the house made of sticks and I could not guess what he was trying to tell me, so we grabbed White (his communication device, yes, Kaden named him and yes, he gave it a gender :) ). He then types out "Daddy did not put sticks in Kaden's new house" "Yes baby, your right daddy did not build the new house with sticks." "bad." "yes that would be bad!!!" I couldn't help but laugh.

As for Brody...he is growing so fast. He has been trying to crawl. He gets up on his hands and knees and then lunges forward. He does make his way around by doing the infamous army crawl. He is getting his two bottom teeth, both at the same time. They do not seem to be bothering him too much just the typical chewing on everything and drooling everywhere. He is such a happy baby. He has learned how to do the "indian chant". Sorry if that sounds horrible, I don't know any other way to describe it. He is loving baby food...any and all of it so far. He loves his big brother Kaden and loves to grab any vent tubings or cords plugging in Kaden's supplies. Kaden is such a little man grabbing them out from Brody's grip and giving him a toy instead.

The house is coming along and we are hoping to be able to move in the first week of Sept. I am not getting my hopes up though, Nate keeps changing the date. It looks great. They did such a wonderful job. I am so excited and can not wait to move everything in. Kaden loves his new room. We often go there and Kaden hangs out in his room playing with the toys we did move over there.

Well, I think that is all for tonight. One day soon I promise to get pictures posted. It is just hard for me to find the time to be on the computer long enough to post. Hope to do it sooner then later.

5 already???!!! Kaden turned five today. He is growing so fast. Monday he will be starting kindergarten. It makes me so sad, but so proud and happy for him at the same time. It still amazes me when I see him accomplish something new (maybe that is just a mom thing and it will continue to be that way when he is 50???).

I know we have said it before and I know we will continue to say it, however, I will say it once again...we are so proud of you. You are nothing short of amazing, not only with how brillant you are but how caring, loving and kind you are as well. Every day of your life I have felt blessed to be your mommy. You have touched more lives then you realzie in your incredible 5 years of life. Now is the next step...KINDERGARTEN!!! I know you will do great!!! I am excited for you to learn new things and make new friends. I can not wait to see what you show us next. You are our miracle baby or should I say BIG BOY!!! We love you bubby, forever and always!!!

mommy, daddy, Brody and angel Ava
