Meet Brock now!

It has come to my attention that I need to update my blog. It still gets alot of hits which surprises me some what...but then it doesn't really as I know my kids is really beautiful. Brock is now not just 5 but 5 1/2 and please don't forget the 1/2 it is really important. He is a lover of all things his brother can do...he is 5 1/2 going on 11. Brock loves to swim and build legos with his brother. This year he has learned to read small books, count to 100 and write his name. He is ready for kindergarten in the fall and so in Mama! He also learned to swim like a champ after one month of lessons. We are pretty proud. As far as his cleft goes we are looking good. His front teeth are a mess and we do quarterly visits with a dentist. His speech is good...some times he says things funny but nothing more than is age related. Cosmetically I think the scaring is worse as he grows and his nose looks flat but we are not going to do anything more to him surgically until he wants it done. Less is more in the cosmetic department the less work done now the less scar tissue and a better repair when he is an adult. Enjoy the pictures!

Brock loves.......

Here is Brock on his Birthday. His speech is excellent and he is very easily understood. He now knows his ABC's and can count to 10. He loves to sing songs and play with Thomas trains...his faves are Spencer and Henry and they go everywhere he does! He is a HUGE Blues Clues fan. His most favorite activity is wrestling with Max....poor little Max. :)

Brock at Christmas

Here's Brock at Christmas! He was so excited there was a "choo-choo train" in the living room. We learned very quickly that it was all about the chocolate coins with Brock.

The BIG update!

Hi everyone! After taking many complaints we have decided to update the blog....sorry but life is so busy now. The last 18 months with Brock have been very busy and might I add trying. We have definitly hit the dreadful "terrific twos". The fits are plentiful. It has been so nice to watch Brock grow up. He is so smart and funny.

Here is Brock after a morning on the go. I guess he could not wait for lunch! Brock loves to be on the go. His only words right now are "go, shoe (chew), car and key." He wakes up everyday and gets his shoes, my keys and crys at the door to go to the car!  Posted by Picasa

Christmas was a blast this year. Although we were not with family there is something to be said for having Christmas with "just us". We had the traditional neighborhood breakfast on Christmas day. Brock never once touched the tree until we started opening gifts and he thought it was time to remodel...LOL. He was not into opening gifts this year but I am sure he will be next Christmas. The boys were both spoiled rotten. And so was Mom! The holidays were a perfect end to a very stressful year. We are truely blessed that Brock is so healthy. He has never been sick which helped aid in his speedy recoveries from surgery. Here is the picture of them in there Christmas sweaters. I tried so hard to get a good picture of them both....I finally gave up!!!

Happy Thanks Giving! We are so thankful! Posted by Picasa

We are true Texans now....we fried our turkey!!! Joe loved it and it was very very delicious. Now I need to start working on my vocab... "I am fixin' to start saying Y'all!" Posted by Picasa

Brock and his "no-nos" four days after palate repair. It was a rough week. He did not sleep for 5 or 6 days. At the post opp. appointment Dr. Stal said he looked great and after a week were allowed to take them off. It was a relief to take them off and know it was the last time I had to deal with them. I feel a huge weight has been taken off my shoulders now. The best way to describe what I am feel now is the "after holiday blues". I have that feeling of slight depression/relief/release that comes after you have been through the holidays....or Hell. Just kidding. I can now say and mean it "what doesn't kill me makes me stronger". Corney I know..... Posted by Picasa

Sorry Daun....just had to share.  Posted by Picasa

Brock and Joe at Texas Childrens. I can not believe that our sweet baby boy is a year old. Just as Dr. Stal promised he would have his last procedure just a few days after his first Birthday. His palate repair was a success. The ENT placed new "super" tubes in his ear. They are hopefully going to last until he is 4 or 5. I really hope so. Dr. Stal is amazed at how well his lip has healed. He said he looks at least 18 months post opp.. Thats my boy. We are using a product called rejuvination creme that is made by arbonne. I cant tell you how relieved we are to have the reconstructive surgeries behind us. Now we can just sit back and enjoy our little boy for awhile.  Posted by Picasa

All these new gifts.....Y'all wasted your money. We would rather play in the bucket! Posted by Picasa
