Happy Birthday Gage!

Gage's First Birthday.

This video is a first attempt at this, so I hope it works. There is music with the video, so you might want to pause the songs at the side of the my blog.

We had lots of fun at Gages birthday. I wish Gage had been feeling better, however. He had an ear infection. Not very fun for a birthday boy.

I have to work tomorrow, so Thursday I hope to post more. Take Care everyone!

Smell the Goods!

I am so blessed to have such a wonderful group of people to work with in the hospital! A dear friend Amy set up a bake sale in honor of our family to help us with some of our medical bills. We are truly humbled by the turn out. The girls on the floor said there were so many people bringing baked goods to the floor to be sold that next day. Some of them they didn't even know. If any of you are one of those people, Thank you!!! God Bless you! Here are a few pictures that I snapped when I got a break from work.

Answers to Prayers and More

A big sigh of relief.

Ryan's cancer is gone. No evidence of any lasting disease present. Now we go into follow up mode every 6-8 weeks, they will do a chest x-ray and tumor markers, and every 3 months a CT of the chest. Such a blessing. Thank you God!!

I plan on making a special post about all the thanks you at a later time. But I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart--our whole family, for all of your prayers, and thoughts, and support along the way. We are truly blessed to have so many kind people taking time on our behalf. We are humbled and ever-so thankful for each and everyone of you!

I was hoping I would have had some guesses as to what Luke was trying to say, but I won't keep any shy blog followers from the "suspense," of not knowing what Luke was saying.

"noh"-- Nose. Luke also gracefully shows you where his nose is when you ask him to.... By sticking his finger right into his nostril. Hah ha.

"e-b oye."-- Big boy. As he points to himself. and on the occasion that I first heard this phase he was pointing at Daddy.

He is also getting better at identifying all of his body parts on his face.

We are working with Luke on potty training. He know what the potty is. Today I told him its time to go to the potty chair, and he went right into the bathroom and lifted the lid on his potty. He hasn't ever gone in the potty however. We have showed him the grunting noise to be made when on the potty and he does that very well also! :)
I am not positive if this is really what he was thinking or not, but today he was hanging out in his playpen while I was doing some touch up painting in the living room and he said "uh-oh" and grabbed his diaper. We headed into the bathroom and he again went right to his chair. So I am being very hopeful when I say this, but maybe, just maybe, is he getting it figured out?

I would really welcome any ideas or advise as to how to potty train a boy.

Oh yeah, one more word that I will just give you the answer to here.

"dub-you." --Love you. That one was easy. But was it ever so sweet to hear him say that today!!!!

God Bless you all!!!
