Hey Sailor, I Have Amazing News

Hey Kids! My heart is overflowing with gratitude this week.

First off, I really appreciate all of your thoughts and prayers for the Nugget. You are all so wonderful to call and write in support, and I can't tell you how much I needed it or how much it meant to me.

Secondly, he was given a clean bill of health by an expert in the field. We couldn't be happier to hear this news after so many tears of worry and sleepless nights. My heart feels like it's going to burst of relief today. The specialist attributed the lack of chatter as of late to his level of activity and progress in other areas (i.e. climbing everything in sight and searching for the largest available object with which to poke Polly) and possibly some trouble stemming from a few ear infections-- not early signs of Autism as I imagined in my darkest fears.

 I know that the prayers from family, friends, Oklahoma temple patrons, and YOU have helped us all immensely during this difficult time. He has been full of joy and beautiful sounds again these past few days and I know it's largely due to your faith and love. Thank you, thank you, thank you. If you think I'm going a little crazy here, you're completely correct. I had to stop myself from leaping into the arms of the poor specialist and kissing her in the face.


Today we took a family outing to one of our favorite family eateries, Luby's Cafeteria, where Max eats huge portions of all his favorite foods, and get his cheeks pinched by all the blue haired old ladies who frequent the joint. After, we made a family couponing outing where Max found these awesome Passover balloons.


I'm in no way condoning this behavior by the Nugget and Mr. Newsfeed. I just take the pictures. Our total grocery bill was $48.97. Total after coupons? 16.32.

Then! When I think there can't be anymore great news this week, my awesome friend Chanda of Neko Knits, NOT ONLY opens the most awesome Etsy shop-- the opening of which I've been looking forward to for ages.


THEN! She mentions this very Newsfeed in the giveaway she is hosting to celebrate the opening AND offers folks an extra entry to follow us! I can't think of sweeter friend or thing  to think of me while her blog is taking off so quickly! So please, head over and check out her amazing artistry and sign up for a chance to have one of your very own!
