Max is 8 months old today!!!

Unfortunately he spent the day in the hospital. We woke up Thursday morning at 3am to Max moaning in bed. Celeste went in to check on him and he was burning up. We checked his temperature and it was 103.7. As she held him he was very lifeless and larthargic. We gave him Tylenol but it only brought the fever down a little bit. After a doctor visit and some lab work we were admitted to the hospital because Max's white blood cell count was over 4x the normal level. They did lots of poking and prodding, including an IV for fluids and a spinal tap to rule out meningitis. The blood cultures show that he has a bacteria dangerously growing in his blood. He is however responding well to antibacterial treatment as you can see from the cute pictures of him below. The infectuous disease specialist told us that because he is responding so well, if lab results look good, we can bring him home on Saturday. We were very blessed that we brought him in when we did. Thank you to all who have prayed for Max and supported us. We were very blessed to have Celeste's mom in town to help with the kids too. You'd never know he was so sick from these pictures, Ibuprofen does wonders.

I know, I know... it has been a long time

Here is Mark at his first snowboarding lesson. He fell a lot!! But the instructor said his attitude was amazing. He kept trying and never quit. Isn't he so cute?

Here is Gwen enjoying the fresh snow. Gwen has been enjoying dance with Miss Ami, playing with friends and helping Mom at home.

And my little Max is now 7 months old. He is crawling, climbing and getting into everything. And everything goes into his slobbery mouth. We love him. He says Mama, Dada, Buba, GeeGee, and just yesterday I swear he said Dog when he was playing with his toy dog. Here he is playing for the first time in the snow.

Kevin and I just celebrated our 10th anniversary. We love our life. We love our family. We love each other.

My Little Performer

Gwen took a 4 month dance class and just finished the session with a performance last night. When I took her to the theater for the staging rehearsal, she was in love. She loved every moment of last night. The stage, the lights, the costumes, the applause. She was in heaven. She loved seeing her dad and brother in the audience. She kept talking to them and waving at them during her dances. She had the audience laughing hard. After her last dance, she was so upset to go home. She wanted to perform! Here are some pictures and videos of her dances. We are so proud of her.

Click below to see videos of her three dances!
