Brendan has gotten so big! He has been walking...and running everywhere! He also loves squatting like this too. His favorite words are still NO and Mama. But that's ok as long as he's not using them in the same sentence! We sure love this boy, he makes us all smile and laugh every day!!
Logan and his Uncle Chris played at the Pure Paintball tournament in Layton. There team is Identity Crisis and they did really good on Friday. But on Saturday is was pouring rain and they didn't do as well but still had tons of fun!
I am super proud of him, he has gotten really good! He did awesome and it was so fun to watch. I can't wait until your next one! And I have to say he had an awesome year academically at Fremont and this last semester he got a 4.0 GPA!!!
Brylee went on a field trip to Antelope Island with her 2nd grade class. Since Ben was off work because of his pneumonia he got to go with her. And she was happy about that!!! This is Brylee and her best friend Mayci.
On the day that Ben got released from the hospital Carter had a throat scope at Primary Children's in Riverton. He did really well. And they found out he has bad acid reflux but that is good news considering all the other things it could have been.
Sunday after we came home from Idaho for Grandma Moon's funeral. Ben got really sick. He had thrown up, was super achy, had a fever, and was clammy. I was really worried about him. By Monday night he was throwing up blood. So I ran him up to urgent care. The Doctor there knew something was wrong but wasn't sure what it was so he sent us to the ER. The ER Doctor said he had a bad stomach virus going around and ended up sending us home with some nausea medicine. The next morning he was super sweaty and had a fever. He ended up throwing up and I knew something was wrong. I took him back to the ER and after the longest two hour wait of my life. They brought us back, Ben's heart rate was really high and his oxygen level was low so they ordered a chest x-ray. The Doctor came back and told us that Ben had bacterial pneumonia I was stunned but relieved that they figured out what was wrong. Because his vitals were not very good and his left lung was so bad they admitted him to the hospital. The next day Ben got much worse and we learned that it was because the infection had gotten into his blood. So he was fighting two infections, pneumonia and sepsis! It was the hardest day for me. Ben was really confused and in and out of it. And I felt like I could loose him. He spent four days in the hospital. Every day he is getting better, a little at a time. The healing process is slow but at least his on the mend. I can't wait until I get my husband back. He is my rock and I don't think I knew how much I appreciated him until now. I love you honey, and if you can help it please don't ever scare me like that again!!!

"If you are still in the process of raising children...be aware that the tiny fingerprints that show upon almost every newly cleaned surface, the toys, scattered about the house, the piles and piles of laundry to be tackled will disappear all too soon & that you will-to your surprise-miss them profoundly." -President Thomas S.
