We met with the cardiologist today to have another echo. The murmur is getting better and Pax has been released from his oxygen. We couldn't be happier.  The murmur although still there is only mild we will return for another echo in 4 weeks to track its progress. We will be keeping a close eye on him to ensure that his heart is working properly. But for now all is well. He is a 'TANK' weighing in at 12 pounds. We feel he skipped the newborn phase. He is into 3-6 month clothes and some 6-9. He's grown so fast he's skipped sizes. He still sleeps well and is a good eater. What more could we ask for. The kids love him and have adjusted well to him.  Jet feels left out and follows me room to room, and gets upset when anyone puts on their shoes. Hopefully he'll settle in soon.  Jay LOVES Preschool and so does MOM. It's been good for all of us to have him at school 2 days a week.  It's just down the street so we walk him to school. He has such great teachers who plan fun activities and crafts for them, all while learning It's so GREAT.
 Mady just graduated from the DARE Program. She enjoyed the program and learned a lot. At times I didn't think it was necessary and felt that shielding her from such things was a better way.  I hate that she's growing up and that some day I won't be there to tell her what's good and what 's bad, and what friends she should play with. Letting go is so hard...
Brooklyn...Loves school and is in a class with lots of her friends.  She's miss Bossy around our house. The poor boys have so many moms under one roof telling them what to do.
We've been homebound for the last 2 months it doesn't seem like it should be Christmas time. The months have flown by and I'm feeling behind in all categories. Someday I'll catch up.

Even though you posted this a while ago I never saw it til now because I'm behind on my blog reading! Way to post though Jen! It's crazy to me that Mads is doing things like DARE. Wow. She still seems so innocent even though I know she's getting older and it's hard to think about all she needs to know.... It's been great to see you guys a bunch lately and I don't know when we'll get to next but we miss you all already. Thanks for being such a great host every time we drop in (sometimes with only hours of notice!) and for what great examples to us you are as parents! We sure love your wonderful kiddos and especially how sweet they are to Johnny. He loves every second at your place--so much more fun with all his cousins than here! Hope Pax's next appt this week goes great too and you guys are loving winter and the Christmas season!
