New Blog for Nathanael

We recently started fundraising with COTA to cover Nathanael's medical expenses, so updates about him will be on his new blog from now on: Please check out the blog, pictures, and opportunities to help, and feel free to pass along the link to others. We appreciate your concern!

So we're thankful for the break in the weather (rain, lower temps) and have spent a little more time outside lately. We still have to keep Nathanael out of the sun, but if he can stay shaded in the stroller (or inside, while we listen on his new monitor!) then we're okay. :)

The other day before the rain started Jamison "helped" Brad water the lawn, and discovered what fun it is to outrun the sprinkler!

Another day we played outside (while Nathanael took a nap inside) and Jamison found a new friend...a grasshopper! It was so cute to see him catch it, but despite his best attempts to be gentle, the poor, helpless creature wound up with two broken legs. We did finally put him in a jar to take inside, and we fed him grass, and gave him fresh air, but he didn't last the night. I think the broken legs would not have helped him much in his natural habitat.

The third day shown here is of our first walk with both boys in the new stroller! (Or at least this is the first one I can remember!) I figured out that I was pushing over 50 lbs worth of kids (32 + 19.5) and 15-20 lbs of stroller for 45 minutes - quit a workout! The good thing was that Nathanael conked out after about 10 minutes, so Jamison and I could look for birds, talk about trees, and enjoy the time together.

  1. Thanks for the pictures. How cute are your little boys?!?!
    I know life is far from normal, but I pray you are finding joy in some of the small normal things and that gets you the tougher times of medicines, doctors and isolation. I can't wait to meet you and your boys when we get back to Texas.
    Thinking and praying for you daily.
