Firsts....

This past week was filled with a lot of firsts for the boys. Here are a few of them:
1) My First Bottle - This was the first time we tried feeding Reed. He is fed all of his nutrients through an line that goes into his bloodstream. He tolerated this okay but has been spitting up some here lately after we feed him. I am sure this might be an issue once he gets his new heart but this is the
least of my worries:-)
2) First time in bed with my brother where he has to "dress" like me! A big bunch of babies!!!
My friends that are with me every day...Fernando, the horse, and the monkey that has no name
3) First picture with Santa and Mrs. Claus

4) My first time to dress like Braden with real clothes on!
Yea for Reed!!!! Keep staying healthy while you wait for a new heart!!

Reed was moved up on the list today for what size heart he can receive. He can now accept a heart that that is from a child weighing 10 kilos which is about 22 pounds. This is great because it just widens the group that he can receive a heart from. The doctors are very encouraged by Reed's health and they are waiting for a healthy heart. Please continue to pray that Reed will remain healthy while he waits and that his heart will come soon!!!!

Keeley, what sweet pictures of the boys! And you look great, too! I'm sure the wait for the heart is very difficult, but I am glad to know Reed is doing so well. We continue to keep you in our prayers.
