Lots of Brains

Yesterday our little guy had the CT scan our neurosurgeon had ordered 3 weeks ago at clinic and we are happy to say all is well with our Jet! Such an answer to prayer. The scan confirmed there is still more fluid than normal, but nothing we didn't know about already. The doctor cracked us up when he said "he's got alot of brains. that's good." :) Which translates, Jet has good brain tissue - it's not being overrun with fluid build up or anything and he has good fluid in the right places as well (which could be a concern if the good fluid were to disappear.) He also commented on how alert and cognitive Jet is (which is a sign that the fluid is not putting any pressure on his brain as of now). Best of all, no shunt yet! It was quite the relief after a nervous few weeks. So even though his head grew quickly - both the ultrasound and CT showed no real change which is what we wanted. :) The doc wants us back in 6 weeks to measure his head and keep an eye on things of course. But overall it was a positive experience. And Jet was really good and so precious when they papoosed him and ran the CT over him. He did SO good. Such a sweetie it made me laugh to see him so cute and bright eyed sucking his paci and then teary to think "my little baby is having a CT scan"- he looked so little and innocent and perfect. Such a little angel. Mommy loves you baby! Thank you all for your prayers. And thank you God for this good news.

Pumpkin Post

Saturday was a day I had been looking forward to for a long time - Jet's first trip to the pumpkin patch. Nothing says "it's fall!" like a field of pumpkins on a brisk October morning. I was so excited to take Jet to one of my favorite fall experiences. So after his lunch we bundled up (it was in the 40's!) and drove out to Berry Patch Farms. It was perfect because he got his nap on the way there and was happy as a lil' jack o' lantern when we got there. :)

Daddy can I drive?
This goat looks like it's yelling at me.
Silly Baby!
There's so much to see!
Crack me up!
My favorite grin.
ooh...i found a snack.
Can you get over this HAT!? lol.
Hi Daddy!
My boys.
It's so chilly!
Cutest little punkin' in the patch!
How will we choose one?
Playing with Mommy.
"Fall"-ing for this little boy.
Sleepy baby.
A look at our surroundings on our way home. :) Love the ghosts.
Downtown Woodstock is very charming. I want to go back when it's not so cold...
and Baby Jet is not so sleepy. Night Night BJ.

Just Jet

Why hello everyone.
Do you like my jeans?
Be honest...
Do they make my cheeks look chubby?
What about if I turn to the side like this?
Or maybe this side?
Hey - I can see outside!
Now what happened? How did I get here?
Mommy really - I'm not a bit sleepy.

The Baby in Black

Baby looks good in black. :)
Watch the progression of the sweetest grin ever! :)
Whoa! That was fun. :)
I got my eye on you.
So this is the face Jet makes when he is trying to run away from me. lol. He is so funny - it's like he truly thinks if I would just let him go he could take off! He snorts like a bull about to charge too. He makes himself quite the tough guy. Watch out!
