March for Babies is coming up fast and we are very excited to be a part of it. We’ve mentioned before on the blog that we are our local area’s Ambassador Family for The March of Dimes. It’s an honor to have that part in such a wonderful organization. We’re still raising money toward our goal so if anyone is interested in donating as little as $1 or as much as you would like – here is how: Read the rest of this entry »
Hey there everyone. I haven’t written a real blog on here since December 20th so I thought it was about time we changed that!
Life has been quite busy as you might imagine. There are some days when I’m able to stop and just look at where we are and man are we blessed! Brady had her NICU follow-up and it went very well. We didn’t really know what to expect but it turns out that she’s doing quite well. It’s great that they offer those follow-ups for free like they do. It really shows that they care about the development of the NICU babies even after they get to go home. Read the rest of this entry »
Well, it has been an interesting 2 months. We have been to the doctor more weeks than not in the past 2 months. It’s insane really. We were counting our blessings that Brady had not been sick and then we had not been sick. Those well days ended. When I think about it they came to a crashing halt. Brady has been more sick than not, but thankfully most of the illnesses ( all different ) were very mild and our happy baby was still a happy baby even when vomiting and with an ear infection. The Lord has truly blessed us with a mild mannered and happy baby. We couldn’t ask more. Read the rest of this entry »
Thanks to my beautiful wife we took some time to get new pictures online. We’ve added them to Flickr so they should show up in the picture boxes to the right. You can see how fun Brady has become. We also had a photo shoot with the talented Alicja Colon this past Saturday so we will share some of those photos soon as well. If you want any family photography be sure to look into Alicja for the shoot. She’s great!
Until next time…
Brady is doing much better. Her antibiotics have helped a whole lot and she is on the mend. This week has been pretty great. Brady has been this crazy happy baby. I’ve gotten reports of no tear days. How amazing is that? What baby goes a whole day without crying? Mine does! I wish all of you could see that sweet little smile. Her whole face lights up and my heart melts.

The title says it all. Brady has had a tough couple of weeks. About 2 weeks ago she had some sort of stomach bug which included lots of nasty diapers and several projectile vomiting episodes along with decreased appetite. That lasted about a week and when she finally gets back to eating normal this snotty nose appears. At first we didn’t think too much about it, but then a cough started. Read the rest of this entry »
Just wanted to give y’all a quick update. Brady had a doctor’s appointment today for her monthly RSV shot and as usual she was weighed. My response to Erik’s text message telling me what she weighed was”holy crap”. I was in a bit of shock and continued to ask him more questions such as. “was the scale broken” and “did she have a wet diaper”. The answer was no to both. Now that I have properly prepared you for the number, Brady now weighs 13 pounds 10 ounces. Yes, that is almost 14 pounds. If you remember correctly the last time I posted on her weight Brady weighed 10 pounds. That is almost 4 pounds in a month. I am still in awe of her weight gain and I am almost at the point where I think it’s too much. She goes to her regular pediatrician next Thursday so we will see how much of a difference there is between the two. Last time there was about a week between her appointments and when she went to her pediatrician she weighed about 2 ounces less than at the pulminolggists(RSV shot doc). So she might not weigh that much. Guess it just depends on whose scale you want to go by. Regardless, she is getting so big. Read the rest of this entry »
Brady has officially been home longer than she was in the hospital. This is a huge achievement. The past 6 months have gone by so fast. In a way it is sad. The past 3 months have gone by in a blur. My baby has gone from wearing the cute and tiny preemie clothes to the cute and huge (to me ) newborn and now 3 months clothes. Wal-mart has recently received some crazy cute preemie clothes and I find myself in disbelief at how small Brady was. At many points in her life those clothes would have been way to big on her, now they wouldn’t fit over her head. I also find my self sad that I don’t have my teeny little baby anymore.

Well, it’s 2009. This month last year I found out I was pregnant with my surprise baby. If you had told me last year on January 1st that in a year I would have a new job, get pregnant, and spend 3 months of my life going back and forth to the hospital, I would have laughed in your face. Last year definitely taught me that my plans are not always God’s plans. Read the rest of this entry »
Brady had her appointment today to get her synagis shot, so of course she got weighed and she now weighs 10 pounds. My little porker I would call her a butterball, but that’s what I call my mom’s cat. Brady is doing great. She gets cuter every day and Erik and I couldn’t ask for a better baby.

Brady Faith was brought into this world 12 weeks premature. This was a result of mommy having pre-eclampsia and there being a reverse blood flow to/from the placenta. Brady wasn't growing like she should and it would have just gotten worse. She weighed 1lb 7oz and was 11 3/4in long. To learn more about Brady and her family click here.
