Look Mommy!! I can hold my own tube!! I don't need him!
This is his new Octatunes Octopus named Ollie... MeMe brought him this for his 5 month birthday... which he spent in the hospital again! He really likes this toy, I think because of it's big eyes. He likes toys with bug eyes.
We try so hard to impress him, but it takes a lot. We figured out he doesn't like toys that are bigger than him... I think he gets intimidated.
How this baby smiles feeling so crappy... I will never understand!
Tripp got to see the horsey again!!! He wasn't as impressed as we were... except this time that horsey STUNK!!
Mommy and Tripp both celebrated their birthday in the hospital! Mommy 24, Tripp 5 months!! Happy Birthday to you!
Rocking with Daddy after his bath... all clean!
Mommy's favorite thing to do... snuggle.
Do you ever wonder if everything happens for a reason? I think all of this has brought me closer to everyone that I love... It makes me appreciate family and friends, and appreciate the time that I have with the people that I am closest to. Something like this also makes you realize a lot about people... There are people who would go out of their way to help and do anything in the world for you and your family, then people who worry about all the wrong things... what's important in life?? Family, family, family. That is what I have come to realize. What do you have without family and love and support? Nothing.
I am blessed. I am surrounded by people who love me and love my baby boy and who would do anything to make us happy. Who cares about money or about who does the most or who gives the most... what's important is that my little man gets the best care in the whole wide world. So many people have come together to help our family... there have been people that we don't even know who have sent prayer cards, or sent cards with encouraging words, or bought diapers, or sent donations... it's unbelievable. His disease sucks, I know... but on a positive note, I have never felt more loved or more blessed in my whole life. And that's a good feeling.
