I have great news! This past Thursday I took Pax for his 3 month cardiology visit and it went so well! The pressures that his doctor has been watching so closely hasn't changed, which is great! Everything looks about the same so no intervention is needed like she thought. He also FINALLY gained some weight too. He had been holding steady at 20 pounds since the end of last year. He kept getting sick and then we've been having trouble getting him to eat, but he gained 3 pounds since February! I was ecstatically happy about this! He doesn't go back until the end of June for another check up.
I was going through pictures on my phone and there are a bunch on there from his first few months and it's just so crazy to look back and see how far he's come. I was watching him eat the other day and he was making googly eyes at me and I just had a "moment" where it hit me how amazing he is and how amazing God is. Pax is such a gift from God to me. (Of course all my children are.) Whew! I better change the subject before I get too mushy and gooey. ha!
I'm excited about this weekend even though it's going to be busy. I love having things to do though. Tonight we are attending a surprise birthday party for my sister-in-law, who has been such a gift from God to me in the last few months. Tomorrow I get to take Dakotah to his last "run" for the year. He's part of the running club at his school and they take part in different "run's" that happen in the city. Unfortunately I'm not looking forward to the very very early hour that I have to get up to take him. I'm thinking coffee is going to be a MUST in the morning! Then tomorrow night Josh's band, Manifest Destiny, is having their EP release party. I'm so so so proud of him and all that he has accomplished. For sooo many years I've heard him tell me over and over about his dream to minister through his music and he's finally been able to do it this last year. His band recorded their first EP a few months ago and after a LOT of work they are finally releasing it. One of their singles might even be played on radio stations soon! (Still working out the details on this.) And then, of course, Sunday is Easter, which will be a super fun day for the kids. Lots eggs filled with sugary, fattening candy that I will secretly be throwing away, but don't tell them that. ha!
Here are a few pictures we took of the kids recently. Enjoy! And Happy Easter! :)
