We Made It!

This weekend marked two celebrations for our boys.

Friday, Reed graduated from preschool and the ceremony was adorable. He and his classmates wore the cutest little caps and gowns. They sang and for the first time EVER, Reed sang on stage too. The students were each given an award and Reed won "Best Storyteller".  I wonder what kind of stories he's been sharing?

That's our boy up front :)
Ramsey says "CHEESE" with the graduates

All the moms got roses :)

Today, we finally made it to Jaxson's Jog. Jaxson's mom, Sarah, did an excellent job educating the runners and describing how it feels to have a child diagnosed with CDH. It wasn't easy but I fought back my tears. It was great to see Jaxson and another survivor, Caleb and their families. Both boys brought us hope during Ramsey's time in the NICU when they visited us. Seeing them together was priceless and I'm already looking forward to next year!

    It has been one month since you last posted on this Blog!! I am missing Ramsey, my Kindred Spirit CDH Buddy!! How's he doing? Is Ramsey growing? Thriving? Reaching milestones? I did find Ramsey's Facebook page. For which I am glad!! But I do not think that I can comment unless I've got an account of my own.... Thus, I am still sitting here awaiting Blog updates!! ;)
