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.

I cannot beileve Kaden is doing so well off the vent and for SO LONG. I had no idea this was going on....AND WHAT??? Brody is already trying to crawl? What happens to the time these days. I havent been gone that long.

Glad Kaden is liking Kindergarten. It is so good when they actually like going.

I posted a VERY LONG update but included some recent photos and will be posting more photos soon. Stop by it when you can.

I'm glad to be back, missed you guys.

Just wanted to stop in and catch up. I remember what it was like when I sent my first born to kindergarten. I was so sad, crying when the bus left. My sitter took a picture of me and I didn't realize it.

Sounds like you have no problems with Brody and his eating! That is great. Can't wait to see some recent pictures of him.

Tell Kaden to keep up that great work being off of the vent. I can't wait until we all celebrate him being vent free. Sounds like it will be very soon.

So are you going to use the excuse of a crawling baby to not blog very often? LOL Just blog when you can and know that I always enjoy seeing updates and pictures of the boys.

I will pray that while I'm writing this, you are already moved into your new house. Can't wait to see some pics of it as well.

Take care and know that I miss you and your cuties.

Love always,

Kaci
