John-Philip - May 7, 2008

Update! John-Philip is at home and appears to be doing great! We are still waiting on some test results regarding a disease that I can neither spell or pronounce. However, we have not thought much about it or worried about it. It's in God's hands He knows all about it and whatever He decides is best He will equip us to deal with it. We go to the cardiologist on August 7th to find out if the hole in the upper chamber of his heart has closed. As of 2 weeks ago it hasn't. Then again, God knows.

He is growing, he is Rotten, and is eyes are hung in between green and brown. I am pulling for brown, but I guess we will see soon enough.

Kacey and Matt love being Mommy and Daddy, they are so cute. What a blessing!
Kacey was leaving my store yesterday and she asked if it was o'kay (not against the law) for him to leave in his car seat with just a diaper. The AC went out and she didn't want him to be too hot. It is so fun to watch her especially realizing how close we came to losing her.

John-Philip spent his first night with us a couple of weeks ago. It took her 30 minutes to give me instructions on what he was to wear after his bath and what to wear to church the next morning, and what lotion to use where, and "you do know mom, that if you do 3ozs, it is 1 -1/2 scoops of formula?" I just smiled and tried not to roll my eyes, I don't know how successful I was because she can read me like a book. She asked if she was being too protective, I said "no, your good." I didn't bother telling her that I would not have dared let her spend the night away at 1 month. I wasn't about to miss my night with my new little buddy.

The twins-Malachi and Madison adore their new little cousin. They just don't understand why he can't play on Booker's Fort yet. Madison holds him and watches television at the same time. He is kind of boring to her. Malachi on the other hand wants to feed him and kiss on him.
They are so adorable. I have yet to get good pictures of John-Philip and none of all three. Supposedly I am a photographer. Makes you wonder huh. I must really be busy to not have a 1000 pix already.
