Quick update

William had a check up today. He weighs 10lbs 11oz at 5 weeks old. He is getting CHUNKY! As of 2 weeks ago, he out grew his newborn clothes and now wears some of his 3 month old onesies. We have to get more clothes for him soon!
I have been reading a book my cousin Cortney recommended called "On becoming Babywise". I have followed its method and William is now sleeping through the night and feeds every 2 1/2 to 3 hours a day. It has been so helpful since I am now going to start working 3 hours every evening for a Dental Company. They have me schedule their patients for cleanings and evenings are the best time to find them home.
Kent is busy with school and work. With a busy schedule he still finds time for our little family. He has decided to get a minor in Visual Arts which means 2 more semester at BYU. He graduates in April. yay!
We are so excited for Fall! pumpkin patches, carnivals, and corn mazes HERE WE COME! oh and HALLOWEEN!!!

Life's a roller coaster sometimes

As many of you have heard, William was sick for 3 days the first weekend of his life. First he had jaundice pretty bad which required him to be under blue lights. During that time he became dehydrated and some how got a urine infection. He had a fever of 102. He also had an infection in his blood which Doctors thing it was from bacteria on his skin when he had his shots. crazy! Our Doctors are also concerned that he might have meningitis since he had a fever. This causes swelling in the brain so brain damage is a probability. We are so thankful that he has not been affected by that. He has great hearing and we caught it early. He has been on 2 antibiotic since Aug 30 and his last dose is this Sunday. William is a tough little guy! He has gone through 2 spinal taps, an IV on his head, endless blood and urine test and a circumcision. Trying to breastfeed was a challenge during this time. Poor little guy had no desire to work for his food but we both made it through.
We are so very grateful for your prayers and for the tender mercies of the Lord. William had his 2 week check up and he is a healthy boy! He is now 8lbs 12oz and 22 inches long.
First order of business was to test mommy and daddy's faith. It did and we are very thankful for all that we have experienced.
