Granna's House

Micah man loved being outside today the sun was out and there was a breeze. It was a beautiful Ojai day.

Mommy and Micah man chillin in the shade watching a humming bird.

Oh brothers!! after I got these pictures Joseph pushed Micah on to the blanket almost face first, gotta love it! On accident I think Joseph was just way too excited to sit still much less have is brother on his lap. But I got a very cute picture.

Yeah he is a ham!!
We also swung in the hammock and Joseph and Granna played in the pool and Micah kicked in the pool. Man I love my family Thank you God.

Silly photo

I know this may not be right. But I had to do it, it made me laugh which in turn made Micah laugh! The things parents do to their kids(maybe it's just me!).

Sunday at the Zoo

Last Sunday Daddy was wanting to have a family day. He has been really busy lately and we haven't had a lot of time all together. So we went to the Santa Barbara zoo and had a wonderful day. We ate lunch and Joseph chased off a seagull that was stealing every one's food. Then we cruised around the zoo. Micah made it the whole trip awake which of course it was right during nap time and Joseph melted right at the end. Good timing. It was a beautiful day and everyone was in a great mood. I love family days.

The Gwendolyn Strong Foundation is trying to raise $50,000 on a road trip to take Gwendolyn to meet relatives that never thought they would meet her. What an amazing adventure! What a blessing to these loved ones that they will be able to meet such a beautiful little girl. PLEASE take a few minutes and check out what they are doing it is awesome. If you can spare $10 or $100 they are asking for donations to sponsor each mile they drive. Each mile $10, sponsor what you can or if money is an issue make sure you pray for this family I know how nerve wracking it can be to be away from home with a child with SMA and in need of so much medical equipment.

What an amazing day!

Yesterday we celebrated Micah's first birthday, it was great. I got to see a very special friend I haven't seen in years Rachel and her son Dustin, a friend who lives down the street and should see more often The Files and Blaines and a new family who we already love the Strongs. We also had a few very special girls from Cottage Hospital come see Micah and brought us a very special card from all the PICU staff. Thank you Danielle, Rebecka and Grace. Micah was loving all the pretty girls!

We all got there and realized how we had lucked out the park was beautiful. We got all set up and everyone started showing up. I love Birthdays for the kids because its a fun excuse to have fun. All the kids got to play, play, play on the playground area and I got to visit with a bunch of my family who had never met Micah. Right before we were getting ready to do cake Bill, Victoria and Gwendolyn got there. I was just thrilled to meet them. We have been talking over the Internet for six months since we came home from the hospital and we feel like we already know them. The highlight of the day for me was getting to see Micah and Gwendolyn talking, flirting and just enjoying each other! It was so cool. Gwendolyn is such a beautiful little girl and has such a beautiful smile. At 20 months she knows how to get your attention and knows how to make you smile. She is awesome.
So we sang and Micah smiled at everyone singing and then we ate cake. I love cake. We also recognized that Gwendolyn will be 20 months soon and had the bakery put a "Happy 20 Month Birthday Gwendolyn" sign on the second cake we got.
After cake we got to just visit with everyone and started to say bye to all the guests. Once everyone left we gathered up all the balloons and decided to release them in remembrance of all the sweet children that have lost the fight with SMA and in celebration of all the ones still fighting. We love all these children because we know the daily struggle and how special they are.

Here are the names of a few of the sweet children here and in heaven who's stories have touched our lives in so many ways: Gwendolyn, Sophia, Haylee, Casey & Colin, Jonas, Dakin, Brynlee, Karson, Tabitha, Riley, Beau, Owen, Mollie, Georgia, Samantha, Lucia Ana and Taleah. And also MJ Who is an inspiration at 21 years old, You are amazing.

Oh and this is what tired looks like !!! The boys were beat after the party.
