Another Milestone For Little Bug!!!!

Daddy and Mama are sooooooooooooo proud of Little Bug because today, November 8th 2007, marks a GREAT....HUGE...milestone................What is this milestone you ask???????????

1 Year hospital free!!!!!!!!!!! Yeah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You see a year ago today Connor was discharged for the last time from Children's Hospital and has not been admitted to the hospital since then. Outside of occasional clinic appointments we have not been back to Children's in all that time. This is such an accomplishment for us and a huge milestone for Connor. As many of you know that have followed the blog for this past year and half, there were times we wondered if we would ever bring Connor home. We looked at the archives of the blog for last year at this time and we couldn't believe what we saw. We saw a puffy-faced little boy who was still medically frail. We both commented on how God shielded our eyes from how bad things were over our times in the hospital. We can truthfully say that Connor is improving day after day and we couldn't be more proud of him. What a beautiful day that we celebrate this incredible accomplishment for Little Bug.

Daddy and Little Bug gazing at the "You are Special" plate that comes out every time we have a special event in our house. If you look close there's even one candle in his Turkey & Rice dinner tonight. We know that there are still challenges ahead of us and many milestones left to conquer, but we are all up for the challenge and we look forward to each day ahead where we make progress for Connor's future!!!

Lovebug Hugs and Happy Anniversary Connor,
We Love You,
Daddy, Mama, Mackenzie and Abbey

Mackenzie in pink!!!

Ok so here's the deal...We took our first shot at entering Mackenzie into a photo contest so we're asking for your help. She needs your vote to win. All you have to do is click on this link and it will ask you to register. You do need to fill out this form and when you press Submit another window will pop up that tells you to check your email because your vote has not been cast yet. Check your email and follow the link to finalize your registration. Once you click on that link a window will pop up that has a whole bunch of offers...You do not need to do anything with that page. You will notice at the very top of that page that it says you are now registered and you can cast a vote once each day. Now you can exit out of that page and you're done. Go back to www. once every day and vote for Mackenzie. When you log on again just press the search botton and type in Mackenzie and choose Washington and press Search. You will see the above picture and then, vote for Mackenzie every day if you'd like.

I know it probably sounds like a whole lot of trouble to just vote, but we're so curious to see what kind of votes she could get. Thanks and we'll see what happens at the end of the month.

What a silly girl!!! Crooked smile and all, we think she's the cat's meow!!

I know it's a little blurry, but couldn't resist posting this cute picture I snapped today of Mackenzie all dressed up in her pink fur vest and'd think we were going to a party or something.....Nope, just Target!!!! Hee Hee

Lovebug Hugs,
