a new look and a half birthday

i have revamped my blog...and finally made a banner with milo's adorable little face on it, which i have been meaning to do for a while. so much has been going on here lately. i keep meaning to sit down and write an actual post but never seem to get around to it. milo turned one and a half the other day, it has been a crazy year and a half too! so much has happened and i think i have probably aged about 10 years in that time, and i have the grey hair to prove it....but i am so in awe of milo, and so proud, and although i get really sad sometimes thinking about all he has gone through, and we as a family have gone through, i am so happy that he is my's all so worth it, every last grey hair is worth it!

we had to make a tough decision recently regarding milo's issues with vomiting...we basically had to decide whether or not milo should get a nissan fundo, or a gj tube. both had their advantages and disadvantages...nissans don't work for every kid, from what i was told it seemed like a 50/50 chance, it was either going to work great, or cause even more problems. the gj tube meant that milo would have to be hooked up to a continuious feed for a majority of the day, no more bolus feedings. so after alot of internet searching and talking to different people about it we decided to start with the gj tube. it was a less intrusive option and if it doesn't work it's very easy to reverse, unlike the nissan....and if it doesn't work a nissan is always an option in the future.

he just had the procedure done yesterday and so far so good. he seems to be feeling better then i have seen him in quite a while. i can't imagine it was much fun for him vomiting several times a day, and when we did our practice feeding by mouth today he ate half a jar of gerber stage 2 mac and cheese which is the most he has eaten by mouth in a long time....since before the vomiting got out of control, so keep your fingers crossed that this does the trick and milo can start growing and thriving....milo has been a skinny baby for much too long, bring on the chubby baby cheeks!

i heart faces

this week at i heart faces it is the blurb book photo contest, and if your picture is chosen it will be in the blurb book....there is no theme per se, just pick you favorite picture. I really like the expressions that milo and his daddy are making in this picture, they are both too cute!

I am submitting this photo into the Blurb Book photo contest. I am granting I Faces permission to use my photo in a printed version of a book for commercial use and possibly advertising of a photo book on both the Blurb and I Faces web sites.
