Family Park Day


We decided to take a day and go to the park yesterday. After all the stress of worrying about Olivia and trying to move we needed a day off. Landon got a fishing pole for his birthday so him and daddy worked on casting and reeling it in. Valerie and I enjoyed the sun and watching daddy and Landon. It was a nice and very much needed afternoon!

Birthday Boy!

Landon turned three this month and had a very special birthday. He got to celebrate with Aunt Jana and Grandma and Grandpa and then with Grandpa Thomas, Grandma Heidi and Adam. Then on his birthday we celebrated with Grandma Kathy and Grandpa Larry and the next day we went to Gym Stars and celebrated with all our friends. He is one very loved little boy and in the midst of all that our family is going through right now- he needed this special time just for him. It was a great birthday and one I am sure he will remember!

Landon's Butterfly

Landon and Daddy caught this butterfly and Landon loved it! The butterfly stayed with him for a long time! It was fun to see how excited he was to hold it!

Landon and Olivia
Landon loves to hold his baby sisters and is very gentle with them. Ever since Olivia went back in to the hospital he has been saying that he misses his other baby sister and wants me to go get her back. He is a great big brother and we are very proud of him!

Bringing the girls home!!!

This was the first time Landon was able to really see his baby sisters!
He was in awe and couldn't stop staring and saying how cute they were!

We were able to bring the girls home on Tuesday August 18th. They were 16 days old and healthy and ready to go home. We were so excited and blessed to have them home. After being home for 4 days Olivia became really sick. She wasn't keeping any food down and was starting to get dehydrated. We tood her to the emergency room on Sunday the 23rd and she was admitted back into the ICN at Memorial hospital. She is still there today- September 1st and has received a blood transfusion and is on a bunch of antibiotics to fight off a bacteria infection. Continue to keep her in your prayers!
