Austin, it's time to eat...

Austin had another follow up appointment with his heart doctor yesterday. He continues to do well and is apporaching time for the second surgery. He will have one more appointment in mid April then they'll discuss when to do the second surgery. So we're guessing his surgery will be sometime in May. Pray that Austin will remain strong between now and then and pray for Andy & Heather as they prepare to relive the journey of surgery and hospital stays. It's been so nice to have Austin at home and it's hard to look ahead knowing what is coming. Join me in praying for them!

Also, join us in praying for Austin's appetite. He isn't eating as well as he has been before, and we really want him to be gaining weight and eating better. Pray that his appetite will increase and he'll be our little piggie, eating all the time! Smile.

Thank you for joining us for this journey. It's definitely been an amazing ride and we're excited to see where God takes us next!

Austin had a good weekend last weekend at grandma and grandpa's house. These pictures were taken there. Enjoy!

Austin is growing so much!!! It brings tears to my eyes! Such a blessing! Words can't describe what a blessing Austin has been to so many people! I'm on the edge of my seat waiting to see all that God will do with his life.

Keep praying!

No news... is GOOD news!

Austin continues to well! I know I say that a lot lately, but that's exactly what we want to hear!

Austin spends most of his time smiling, eating, pooping, sleeping, playing with Mommy & Daddy, and hanging out at home. He's loving it!

Join me in continuing to pray for little Austin, for Andy, and for Heather. Pray that God will continue to strengthen them for this journey. Pray that God would give them guidance as they face Austin's second surgery in the coming months. Pray that all in Austin's life would continue to sense God's presence and blessing as God continues to use Austin's life in a very powerful way all across the globe!

I'm gonna get you!

Growing and growing!

Austin continues to do well! He's had a GREAT week! He's eating well and almost sleeping through the night! He only wakes up one time to eat, then goes back to sleep! We're so proud of him!

He's visiting with grandparents this weekend, and I'm sure he'll be spoiled! But hey, thats what grandparents are for! Smile. Pray that he'll do well on his first road trip, we know he will.

New pictures are coming soon... be sure to check them out! They're cute!

2 months old today!

Austin is 2 months old today! Happy Birthday Austin! We're so proud of you! You're a strong little guy! You've come so far! We praise God for you each and every day!


"Happy!"... Dr. Colvin said he was very happy with Austin's checkup today. He continues to be very pleased with his progress. And we're just as pleased! Austin is doing well.

Austin will head back to Dr. Colvin's for another check up in three weeks. Pray that he'll continue to do well.

Also join us in praying that Austin will continue to eat and grow. He's not been very interested in eating the last few days, he's only been eating half the ammount that he normally eats, and he lost a few ounces. This afternoon his appetite seems to be back to normal. Pray that this will continue. We need him to eat well... pray that he'll do this.

Continue praying for Andy & Heather. Pray that they will rest well and have the strength needed to care for Austin as well as carry out their normal routine.

3 weeks

Austin has now been at home for 3 weeks, and continues to do very well! He enjoys all the normal baby things: eating, sleeping, and pooping. Smile. He also enjoys smiling at his Mommy & Daddy, playing on his play mat, and swinging.

Austin has an appointment with his heart doctor this week. Pray that all will be well and he'll continue to make good progress.
