Call me biased if you will, but I'm pretty sure I have the cutest kids on the planet... These are Bella's 3 year old pictures taken back in October by Mouritsen photography.
Tonight I took the kids to Old Navy to do a little winter clearance shopping. Bella got a few things and this was her bedtime prayer: "Heavenly Father, thank thee for this day. Thank thee for my new shirt. Thank thee for my new pants. Thank thee for my new sweater. Name of Jesus Christ, Amen". Well, at least she is grateful! Bella loves clothes. She changes her outfit a dozen times a day. You should see the laundry I do! Ez pukes all over his clothes so I've got double the load with him and Bella changes her clothes so often that she fills up her laundry basket and I'm not sure what is really dirty and what isn't so it all gets washed. Is 3 years old too young to teach her how to do her own laundry??? :)
Our smiley guy...
We took Ez in for his upper GI testing on Monday. He had to drink 6 ounces of chalky, no calorie, strawberry flavored barrium. Blaine and I were amazed at how he was guzzling it. No problems there! Then they took live x-rays every 15 minutes over the course of 5 hours to track the progress of the dye through out his intestines and into the colon. We got the results back today and we learned absolutely nothing new. He has acid reflux and malrotation of the intestines. But, since he has been throwing up less this past week, and since the x-rays didn't reveal anything new, we are not going to do the more intrusive tests at this time. Yippee!!! We feel like he is progressing, albeit slowly, and we are optimistic that he will continue to get better as the months pass. Oh, and that barrium stuff...if only he knew how that strawberry flavored chalk would back him up for the next few days...I don't think he would have been as eager to drink it. Boy, has he (and therefore us) had a rough few days.
