Day 31 - Winnie the Pooh and Tigger too


Tristan had another really good night, his apnea monitor didn't go off at all and he slept very well, of course I think between the bath and all the pictures with his daddy and brothers (in their matching "doggie" PJ's) it made him very tired. The excitement for today? When Trayc was at the store this afternoon he bought Tristan a Tigger outfit, he said he couldn't resist. It's like the Mickey Mouse one I bought 2 weeks ago, it's velour so it's very soft and warm which he really needs today - the high for the next few days is in the 40's, fortunately it's back to the mid-70's by the end of the week. We dressed Tristan in his new little Tigger outfit and he had a photo session with Winnie the Pooh this time! The boys think it's fun to dress Tristan up and take so many pictures. I know it may seem as though we are going to the extreme with all the different dress up/photo sessions but I believe one day we'll be so thankful we did all of this. I also believe it allows us to have fun no matter the diagnosis (T-18) - hey it keeps us laughing, having fun and making lots of memories as a family!!!! Please pray for Tristan's continued strength and please pray for us as we face another new day tomorrow.

You keep having fun and making memories as a family of 5. Tristan is so sweet and looks so good. His brothers are going to remember being a part of something so special, a miracle, and this must just make their hearts soar. Yours too!! Keep loving on this little boy and enjoy every moment as you face another day in this miracle from God tomorrow. Your story blesses me so much.

Love, Laurie in Ca.

I have been following your blog...I live in TN and found you through a friend of mine. I check everyday to see how little Tristan is doing. I am so thrilled to always see his progress...He is a cutie!

Don't appologize for the dressing up and picture thing. You are exactly right, those pictures will be great memories to have and hold one day. Never appologize for the memories and fun times you are having as a family. Too many families no days don't do things like that anymore.

I am constantly praying for you and your family. I know lots of people are. Thank you for always opening up your heart and sharing your words for all to see.

God Bless You and Keep You,
Alison from TN

Yvette - He is so very precious! His hair has gotten so long in the past month and it is so nice to see him w/ both eyes open! What a miracle! Keep taking those pictures and keep posting them as well! We all love to see them! I plan to do the same w/ Eva. Praise God for the time that you have had thus far and the many more memories that you will be able to make and have! Praying for your family of 5 as always!
