Where should I start?

I think its well past time for an update. That is if anyone still reads my blog? And why would you? It's had the same post for the past 6 months. Well lets get to it... Brody turned 7 months, then 8, 9 & 10, which brings us to today- 11 months! So we are way behind, poor second child. I wouldn't miss a month with Gavin but sorry Brody, it happened. Brody recently had tubes put in his ears, he did fabulous! He will have a cardiologist appointment in December, if all goes well he will not have to see a cardiologist again! Brody at 11 months: *You are crawling all over the place, getting into everything! You like to cruise around the couch & occasionally let go to stand for a moment. But for the most part you have no interest in walking, you like to be held! *You love to eat, I could list your likes/dislikes, however you like all foods! *You love your brother, love to wrestle with him, kiss him, & hug him.*Favorite words: dada, bubba, baby, dog, ruff-ruff, mooo.*You like to wave bye-bye, blow kisses & hold up the number one when asked "how old are you?"*You are still a mamas boy, but have made strides in letting others hold you, stay with you. Brody you are such a sweet lil' addition to our family, I can't believe you will be ONE in just four short weeks! We love you! Lets move on to Mr. Gavin...We have been in & out of the hospital more times than I can count with Gavin. He had a circumcision in May, it went great! Recently he's had some brady cardia issues that put him in the hospital followed by an appointment in OKC. Dr. O prescribed a 30-day event heart monitor. Gavin did well with it, it showed a few episodes of brady cardia but his rhythms looked good. He was in the hospital a few weeks ago for a 103 fever, had us admitted in OKC to watch for infection in heart, fortunately that wasn't the case. Then he had a seizure an hour after we were discharged. Recently he had his tonsils & adenoids taken out in the city because they discovered during the first hospital stay that he has obstructive sleep apnea. After about 2 weeks of recovery, he is back to himself. All of the hospital visits, surgeries have delayed school. He will start the first of October & he is very excited about it! Even through all the difficulties, Gavin continues to push on & show his feisty spirit. We celebrated Independence day in Florida this year, we always enjoy getting to go & spend time with family. This year our very dear friends, the Lawrence's were able to join us. Having little babies with us, meant no returning with the usual tan. But we still had a great time. The summer has been a wonderful one, I got to finish it off with a trip to NYC! Adam had a business trip in NJ, so my mom, grandmother & myself tagged along for a fun girls trip in the city. It didn't disappoint! It is one of those places that is fun to visit, but I was definitely ready to come home when it was over. Well lets get to the cuteness... Here are some pictures from the last he-hm several months.

i looked quite a bit...but I guess today...Gavin's birthday is the first I've looked since 9-19. So I had to back track. Little Brody hasn't missed a thing, your life is just too busy for updates. But you're awesome and always in my prayers. Love you!

I'm glad to have found your blog. I'm a mom to a 2.5 months old Jack - a CHD baby. Congratulations on your little ones... and a prayer for your family that life is good to all of you.

PS: In a small way, you helped answer one of my current questions... Jack (for surgery reasons) wasn't circumcised, and when we inquired this week, pediatric urology office told us they wait until the baby is older... I was concerned, but now see that it's common in CHD kids.
