Ford Scheduled for Surgery in May

Hi again everyone! I just wanted to update you on our latest doctor's
appointment. While I was at the March for Babies kickoff, Trey & his mom, Janet.... were taking the boys to the urologist.
Unfortunately, our sweet little Ford is going to have to endure one more surgery. It's shouldn't be a huge deal, but it's a surgery to avoid getting a hernia in the future.
I talked with the doctor on speaker while Trey and Janet talked to him in the office. Of course any surgery has its risks Dr. Pugach told me, but we know with the Lord's help it will be smooth sailing.
It tears me up every time to be in that waiting room while Ford is in somone else's care, but I know the good Lord will be guiding the Doctors and nurses... so that gives me some peace.
Please keep him in your prayers until then and his sweet little bro, Hayden. The surgery is on May 13th. Other than that, they really did get good reports on their kidneys and after this surgery... we may not have to see the urologist much longer.
Take care,
Dana, Trey, Ford and Hayden

You're looking at this year's March of Dimes Ambassadors



Ford & Hayden are almost 14 months now and soooooo FUN! They are both so active and love to play... keeping their mommy and daddy endlessly entertained and busy.

Some EXCITING news to report... The boys are the Ambassadors for the March of Dimes in Tyler this year and for the March for Babies on April 25th in Bergfeld Park, what an honor. I would love to have all of our supporters over the past year and a half come walk with us. You can join our team or make one of your own. There is a link on the March of Dimes website to do that and it is quick and easy too!

Today, we had the kick off luncheon at the Rose Garden Center... so we are just getting teams started and it's not costly... it is just for an amazing cause. So we can save more babies. No one ever thinks their baby is going to be born premature or with birth defects, but thank goodness we have the March of Dimes doing work for us to help preemies and the other sick babies out there. They've done endless research and are instrumental in legislation, as well.




That's our Funny Ford... sticking out his tongue as usual. He is fascinated with it. Also, both boys are cutting their bottom two teeth. It is SO cute. I can't wait to see how their look changes with some pearly whites.


Okay, these two pictures have a story. Every Friday mommy, that's me of course, looks forward to the mail getting here and my People Magazine. Take a close look at the boys. I walked into the office for 2 seconds and came back to this scene. My beloved people magazine wadded up and 2 boys loving every single second of it. They love paper. Maybe that means they will love reading... a mother can hope can't she?





Hayden's crawling

How exciting, on Superbowl Sunday... our little Hayden took off. He's crawling and pulling up on everything in sight! What fun. Ford is not far behind. He is trying to crawl just hasn't mastered it yet. He's doing the backwards crawl, just as Hayden did. Ford can also sit up on his own now from laying down. What Big Boys!I have to tell you... Hayden did find the way to the dog food and took a big scoop into his hands while I was changing Ford. No worries... he didn't consume any, but the dog food has been relocated. We also have a toy fortress in the living room so they don't crawl on the tile and hurt themselves. I am trying to stay out of hospitals you know.
