We are just a family of five...three boys, a mom, a dad, a hamster, and dog. Welcome to our crazy world. Our adventures will make you laugh, cry, and pee in your pants...

Ok...yesterday she put cheese puffs, an apple, a soft vanilla wafer, cheese stick...
and my nuk brush on my tray...

So...I thought I'd try out this cheese stick...
it looked really yummy!

Ummm...now that I have all these little pieces
in my mouth...what am I suppose to do??

Ok mom...maybe the glasses will help me eat better.

ummmm....I don't think so!
Eli lets me sit in this chair thingy...it even vibrates to
massage my back!

I am NOT smiling at mom...Yo Gabba Gabba is playing!

Me and my rat...that's all I need!!!

Mr. Isaac is looking good these days. He needed the O2 today...but, other than that...he's a champ. (only one BIG wretch today...no throwing up!!)

We made it to church today, just the first hour...and it was SO NICE! All the boys look so handsome all dressed up...and the speakers today were great...what a nice way to start to our week!

I need to tell you how wonderful my JOE has been....he's the best husband! (But, you need to know that I didn't find him this way...this took years and years of the proper training...and my (our) hard work has paid off!!!) Even with all the crazy hours that he puts in each week, he was able to do so many special things with the boys this weekend. Watching a movie with JUST Chris, taking them to the game store, to get Icees'...gosh, so many other things I can't remember...AND he even let me take a nap with Isaac Saturday and today!!! What a sweetie pie!

Chris and Eli....it's their last free week before school starts! This was also the last night that they got to stay up late...Eli wanted to make sure he "partied hard" before the night ended--needless to say, they are both sound asleep in their beds!

You know...Isaac was on the floor last night just laughing and smiling...just looking at the ceiling...and I told Joe..."if he never walked or talked....I'd be ok with that...as long as he could smile at me and let me know that he was happy." I think that one day he will talk and he will walk...but, I truly mean that....as long as I could tell that he was happy or unhappy....I'd be perfectly happy. He's such an easy going babydoll...he just melts my heart every day when I look at him. And I can't get over how well Chris and Eli do with him. Isaac will have a bad throwing up episode and turns bright blue...and I don't even have to say anything...Eli will run upstairs and make sure the O2 machine is turned on and ask me if I need anything. Chris has been really good about spending extra time playing with Eli (since Isaac seems to get more of my attention)....everyone is finally in this great groove at the house...everyone helping out each other and taking care of everything....they just make me SO proud.

So...enough about my perfect boys (and big boy Joe)....we're all doing great. I don't think we have any appointments scheduled for Monday...but, Tuesday we see the card...so, fingers crossed the pa's are WIDE open and the leaky valve is not leaking anymore than it usually is!

oh...and I forgot to tell you. He did take little chunks out of that cheese stick..he actually swallowed some...and choked on some. He wouldn't lick the apple twice and the vanilla wafer made him shake...literally, I think because it was the soft one with cream inside...he must not like to hold soft, squishy things.

You sound so happy when you talk about your great boys...all FOUR of them! Hope everything keeps going well over there. I'll be saying big prayers for you on Tuesday...only good news is allowed, as to not screw up all this happiness!! :)

Love ya,


P.S. It looked like he was actually eating that cheese stick! Oh well....

The Portas said...

First of all, any little bit of food that he allows into his mouth is progress...that is great! He will slowly get used to feeling food slide back to his throat and he'll be gobbling down cheeseburgers.

And most importantly, it sounds like you are all at a good, peaceful place right now. That makes me so happy. You do have the best boys in the world, and you all work so well together as a team. You're quite the amazing little family.

I'll be praying for Tuesday's card visit. We want a good report!

Take care, Rollers. Have a great Monday. xoxoxo

I LOVE hearing all the great news from your house!!!
Isaac looks so grown up to us in these pictures - Chris & Eli are being wonderful Big Brothers to him - no wonder he is doing so well, with all that positive energy flowing through the walls of your home, how could he not?
I'm so proud of you & Joe, Kathy! You are great parents, who have fostered a lasting, loving friendship together - We're all learning so much from this experience you share with us! Thank you, thank you, thank you, for all your hard work - both of you!!!

Samantha said...

You do have a great family...and they have a great mom/wife to take care of them all! I love your entries, they always make me laugh. That one picture of Isaac giving you the look just makes me laugh...how DARE you give me food...seriously...who needs food right?

Lots of good thoughts for a great cardiology report tomorrow!!!

Much love,

He looks great with all that food on his tray & his face! If he's anything like Vaeh, he'll just start eating one day. No rhyme or reason to it!

I just love the many faces of Isaac - he's an absolute cutie pie!

BTW - Love the new tutus at your store! The cowgirl is so cute & the angel, too! Where do you come up with your ideas?

Hope you all have a great week. Keep eating bunches, Isaac!! We'll have an eating party!

Grandma Judy said...

Give that boy some CHOCOLATE ! !

He is so dang cute!!!

Colin's Blog said...

Great pics of adorable Isaac-I just love that face!! He looks so smart with those glasses on!!

What wonderful boys you have. So good to see Isaac eating-he puts more in his mouth than Colin. And I completely agree with you-the best days are when Colin is smiling. I know everything else will come in time but, after all these little guys have been through seeing them happy is the best!!

What a cutie pie! My children have discovered Yo Gabba Gabba. They BOTH love it!!

I love to hear you talk about your boys. There is so much love in your family. It is so nice to see how God works!

I can't wait to hear how the appointment goes!!


Vanessa said...

I have to agree with Megan. Any food in the mouth is progress even if it doesn't get eaten. Arianna was the same way for months and still is at times. I'm wondering if she is growing length wise because today she looked so skinny to me. I think I'll always worry about her eating but I do have to say once you know he CAN eat things doesn't mean he always WILL.

I'm so proud of all your boys. They ROCK!
