12 weeks old!

Who's a big boy?

I am!


On Tuesday, Brayden was 12 weeks old! I can't believe it!

I've been MIA for awhile. A lot has happened. My brother is very, very ill and the doctors here don't know why. He has been hospitalized 3 times and every test imaginable has been run. He's lost 40 pounds and is skin and bones. The GI doc is going to run to more scans and if the dont show anything he is probably headed to the MAYO Clinic in NY.

Also, I found out Tuesday that I have to have another knee surgery (this time on my other knee). I am going to put it off as long as I can.

Here are some pics from this past week...

Our Razorback fan:

First time in his jumperoo - he wasn't exactly thrilled...


"Mom, quit taking my picture and get me OUT of here!"

Me and my happy boy:

Please be in prayer for my best friend Amy...her daughter Natalie who's 2 is having heart surgery at Children's Hospital in LR on the 16th.

What a cutie! Hopefully he'll grow to love the Jumperoo. My son LOVED it from the beginning. My daughter took a while to warm up to it. But she gets grumpy any time I'm not holding her so that may be why. Eventually she liked her Jumperoo.

I saw ya'll in church on Sunday and wanted to say hi but ya'll had to leave!
I've been praying for your brother- I'm happy about what God is doing in his life but sorry about his being so sick - your family has really been through it in 2009, huh?
Anyway - we are FINALLY getting out - so we need to do lunch sometime soon and let Harper and Brayden meet!!!

Look at him smiling in the last picture! What a sweetie. And can I just say that Jumperoo's have changed a lot in just three years since I bought mine! They look like so much fun now. My daughter loved hers. Just wait til Brayden's a tad bit older and it will be hard to get him out of it!

Yarnmomma said...

Oh jenny brayden is getting so big... I will definitely be praying for your brother..

Please have the doctors check his PANCREAS.... his symtoms sound all too similar to my mother in laws..

Huge Hugs,

stephanie

Brayden is so CUTE! Those smiles would get me everytime and he would be spoiled rotten! I bet he might be anyway!!!!
Sorry to hear about your brother and you having knee surgery. I will be praying for you! Have a Happy Easter, it will be Brayden's first! Lots of fun.

Jenn said...

Your brother reminds me of mine. Same things happened with him and they finally diagnosed him with Crohn's Disease. He is having another bad spell and has lost a lot of weight again. Sigh...

You all are in my prayers...

Lauren Kelly said...

Sooooo cute Brayden is. Praying for your brother and friend!!!!

Meredith said...

Jenna! Your new pictures are absolutlely adorable! Just too cute! Brayden is just precious precious! I will be praying for your friend's family!

Kendra said...

I can't believe how big (and adorable!) Brayden looks in those first two pics!!! Amazing!!

I also can't believe you have another loved one in the hospital!! Oh Jenna, your poor family has just had MORE than it's fair share of hospital time lately!
I will be praying for your brother, and for little Natalie!
Blessings,
kendra

I live in NY and I have been to MAYO twice and they are so good. I will pray for your friend Amy, your brother and that all goes well with your knee.

What a handsome little miracle you have!

Aimee said...

Jenna,

He is just getting cuter every day! Make sure they've tested your brother for Guillian-Barre Syndrome. My friends husband got this rare but increasingly seen virus last year and its hard to diagnose. Don't know his symptoms beyond weight loss but its worth mentioning...prayers for you all.

Heather said...

How adorable is he??? I can't believe he's 12 weeks already! I am so so happy that he is home and doing so well :D
I will keep your brother in my prayers along with your friend Amy's daughter Natalie.
Hugs and prayers,
Heather~ On the Homefront
