Gavin's Check Up

So we took Gavin to this 4 month check up with the Endocrine doctor to check his growth. He has grown another 2 1/2 inches and is up to 24 pounds. This is huge for Gavin. We are thrilled with his progress. He is finally starting to wear 24 month clothes. My little guy is finally growing.

Our Little Swimmer

So this weekend we had a fun time in Palm Springs. The weather was warm on Saturday so we were able to play in the pool all day. My parents found the kids new swim outfits with floaties in them. Kendall loved it and had to wear every possible thing she could find. Gavin and Ryan weren't feeling well so they unfortunately didn't have as much fun in the sun.

Palm Springs here we come

So this weekend we are going out to Palm Springs for the weekend with my parents. We are very much in need of a weekend away from home. Especially a weekend of fun by the pool. The pictures here are from a year ago when we went to Palm Springs. How they have changed...Not much else to report. Kids are doing great, Gavin has now finished his second week in his new preschool class through the school district and seems to be adjusting. He is trying so hard to talk and we think it will be a matter of time before he never shuts up like Kendall. He also loves to be outside now after his surgery. His new game is to throw his ball down our driveway and watch us chase after it. Oh another fun game he likes to play, is being chased when mom says no. I really hope he gets over these thrills soon. My little angel boy is sprouting some devil horns.

Our little sport

So as all you know Gavin just had eye surgery to correct his lazy eyes. The surgery went well and he is recovering fast. I am so glad the procedure is over and hopefully this will be the last surgery he goes through as a child. It gets harder and harder each time he goes through this. Not only because he is getting stronger and bigger but because I truly feel the previous surgeries have contributed to his delays. After talking to lots of people about loss of oxygen and such, I think during a surgery or birth there was a problem with the amount of oxygen to him. I mean, how is it possible for him to be considered a year and a half behind Kendall. I really feel something set him back. Either way, we just hope this was the last one. Gavin has always been our little fighter. He is going to grow up as a strong little boy.

Hope for the Future

With times as tough as they are all I can do is have faith that it will be okay. I am so grateful to have such a great family and friends. Without them, going through times like this would be dreadful. As we approach Gavin and Kendall's 3rd birthday, all I can do is sit back and reflect on all the memories we have created thus far. I believe we need to go through these tough times to find out who we are and to see how faithful other people you are invovled with are, especially at work.

So enough about that, yesterday was Ryan's 29th birthday. We were able to go out to dinner with his dad and Wanda for an excellent dinner kids free! Now we are just getting ready for the 3rd birthday. We have opted to save money and not throw a big party this year. We figure we will save the money now and then this summer if things look better, we will take the kids to Disneyland or Sea World for a fun weekend.

Will it get better????

Our two angels...
So 2009 has got off to a rough start. We have had more cut backs at work because things are so slow. Ryan and I are both nervous and frustrated but realize this too will get better. It is just hard to sit back and see things go on that you don't always agree with. In an effort to not get myself all worked up about this I will change the subject.

Since the weekend of Christmas, the kids have been on and off sick. It all started wtih Gavin having a common cold. Then Kendall got pnemonia before New Years. Both got better and then yesterday Kendall was sent home with a 104.5 fever. Ends up she has hand, foot and mouth disease. Highly contagious and causing her a lot of pain. She has lots of little sores in her throat so she is not wanting to eat. She is enjoying eating lots of ice cream and popsicles though. Hopefully Gavin does not get this but I wouldn't be surprised if he did.

Well, that is about all I have for now. No good news to report on our end. Thank god for kids because on the worst of days, seeing their faces lights up my heart and gives me encoragement to fight through the tough times and look towards the future.
