Baby Ella

Maxs mom posted about a baby that needs our prayers. Baby Ella was born with type 1 diabetes (one in a million odds). She weighed 4 1/2 lbs. full term. I am adding her to my list of children who need prayer. Her website is

Please keep Baby Ella and her family in your thoughts and prayers!

13 Months

(Eating SUGAR FREE pudding for the first time)

I can't believe it has already been a WHOLE month since your FIRST birthday! Some facts about Gavin at 13months:

Length: 29" (25%)
Weight: 20 lb 2 oz (10%)
Head: 47cm (75%)

You can say:

*Mama (only when we say "BummmBummBum" for some reason it makes you say Mama)




*Pa (for Papa and Grandpa)

*Ball (when you see football on TV or you see a ball)


*Falalalala (we got a children's Christmas sing along CD, he likes Deck The Halls)

*Ahhh (after you take a drink)


*Arf Arf (for a dog)

*You love to scream as loud as you can

*Amen (said it in church when he heard other people saying it!)


Things you do:

*Cry when Dada leaves, you crawl to the door and bang as hard as you can and scream "Dada, Dada"

*Touchdown Signal

*Point to things you want


*Patty Cake

*Sing along when others sing (make sounds)

*Walk around the furniture, however you would much rather crawl

*Dance to music

*You have decided that night time is not sleep time, it's play time, even at 230 in the morning!


Each day makes me realize you are not an itty bitty baby anymore. You have become much more independent, with playing and eating. You love to "explore" the house. You like to see how many times you can get into stuff you are not supposed to before you get removed from the area. You are such a joy and we love you more and more...

xoxo Mama and Dada

We Are Home!

Just so you all know, Gavin was discharged Thursday night and we have been home resting! You do not get much sleep in a hospital! The EEG showed no signs of seizure activity, so we are thankful for that... the main concern right now is Gavin's heart rate when he sleeps, we should hear from the cardiologist this week. We have an appt. with the neurologist with in the next three weeks. Please continue to pray for Gavin as he will have more tests/evaluations for the enlarged ventricles in his brain and for his heart! Thanks again for all the prayers, phone calls, and visits!
