Almost forget Maccoy's appt. With Dr.Kaine last week went as expected. He is stable. Although some of his numbers are up. It just shows us that there is some Right side heart enlargement which Dr.K said is normal for TET repairs. He said of course the valve will need replaced we don't know when but he has high hopes for Maccoy to make it to teenage years. Next year we will continue to talk about doing all the following Holter Monitor cardiac MRI and in school age years exercise stress test. He has No restrictions right now (seeing as he is only 2) but in years to come there will be which we already know about. He gave us some warning signs and things to notify him of. Over all it was a ok appt. Still leaves me a bit breathless to think about but I am dealing. It's Life... See Dr. Kaine in Aug 2012! And hopefully not before :)
We are fighting a bug here.. whats new? It's been hanging around for about a month and just keeps going from kid to kid and back. I am sure to end up at the dr. soon with somebody just not sure who yet?? Between sick kids, football, volleyball, homework and everyday bologna we are down right crazy busy here! And mama is feeling it! When I hit the pillow at 10pm. I am usually out like a light in 5 secs!

Last week brought carter his 3rd loss :( bummer! He almost had a touchdown and as you can imagine this mama was screaming her lungs out but he was stopped a few yards from the end zone and sadly they still didn't make a touchdown even being that close. Hoping this weeks game is better!! He is still playing the QB position, and now even getting in on some defense where he is proving that he can tackle as evidence from my little video!!

Mallory is loving volleyball! She is really good at it too!! I am loving this team because the coach is great with the girls and because we know known of the girls so there isn't a competition as to who is better etc.. they go out they have fun and mallory has made some good new friends!! They have played some great matches! Out of 6 matches they have won 4! Mallory has had some great returns! We are uber proud of her!!

Last Wed. Mallory's aunt called said she won Taylor Swift tickets on the radio and wondered if Mallory and I would want them! Of course we jumped at the chance! So I took my lovely daughter to her first concert and we had a great time! Taylor Swift puts on a Amazing show! I really love her and her music! It was fun we rode to the concert with friends and that was fun to see the girls getting all excited!

The twins continue to get bigger daily. I haven't cut their hair yet and am having people confuse them for girls so I am sure it's about time but it's heartbreaking... so I am waiting! They climb out of their cribs so it's time for big boy beds.. yikes... In almost 11 Years we have NEVER been without a crib in our house (tears)... Cayne likes to sleep with Maccoy and he bed hops so we find them in the same crib a lot which is super cute. When asked "whats your name" they both say "name caynie" although Maccoy answers to his name he still thinks he is cayne and cayne thinks maccoys name is cayne? it's so weird? they can count to 5, love to read books, love love love lawn mowers or anything that looks or sounds like a lawn mower. we are working on potty training but I have to admit potty training twins is a bit more difficult than a single child. I remember years ago potty training multiple daycare kids and I still feel like this is more difficult? Maybe cause they just aren't quit ready? Or because I am not quit ready! I am finding all this stuff that I am doing for the last time makes me sad yet excited? I don't want the years to go so fast but I am anxious to see what each one of these kids turns into? weird huh?

Anyway that is the happenings around the M house with the gaggle. I am sure I left out a ton but the twins are up and not feeling well so I must run!!

Well BABY... We have made it several months with No calls or trips to the Cardiologist.. WOW! Amazing!! to think of where we have come from to where we are going it simply takes my breath away. Tomorrow we see Dr.Kaine it's been almost a year! Everyday I am reminded when I change your clothes and see your "zipper" scar that you have been through a hard battle and will continue to fight all your life. But the days right before a big appointment one that in my head I expect nothing but good news but in my heart fear the worst, I get very nervous and cry at the drop of a hat. You of course being the sweet baby you are give me a hug and kiss and cuddle on my lap and if I am lucky enough Cayne joins you! Neither of you like to see mommy sad. I don't know what I expect from the appointment really? Just more of the same numbers stable your growing, we already know that a valve replacement is in the future it's the darn not knowing when that is enough to send this mama over the edge sometimes of course these appt.s can turn from easy to oh my and I have seen it happen so it's never a easy thing to walk into that office and wait to hear the results of the echo We will both have to be brave! and of course daddy will be there to help us out!! Basically the question I ask myself daily is "how will I know or will I know, will I miss the signs?" ugggggg. Being a parent is the hardest job ever but adding a stress like this makes it a million times worse and to think sweetheart your CHD isn't as bad as others.. So lucky but yet so not?? Your a trooper, my hero! Praying for good news tomorrow.. Love you to the moon and back Maccoy Truston!! So proud of you son so so proud!

Cavin Turns 6!!

6 years ago today we welcomed our 3rd son into the world. He came out kicking, screaming , a little blue, and with 2 big dimples on his cute little chubby cheeks. After they put him in my arms and I felt his tiny warm little body my heart that so badly ached for another daughter was instantly in love with yet another son. My life would not be complete without Cavin Trenton. He is my little shy guy always hiding his face when he is put on the spot or talked to by a stranger, he is a sweetheart always giving me plenty of kisses and hugs throughout my day. And those same dimples he was born with still attract lots of conversation and ahhhhhh's. He is a bit of a mischief maker and gets in a fair amount of trouble here at the homestead. Says his fair share of naughty words or hateful things to his siblings and spends time in time out daily. When he wants to help out he can really work hard. He is a wonderful big brother to Maxton and the twins when he isn't fighting with them or picking on them. And he loves any day when Mason and Carter include him in "big" boy play. He has already made a good impression on his sweet kindergarten teacher and he looks forward to going to school everyday!! Today we celebrate 6 years watching a amazing baby turn into a an amazing toddler turn into a great preschooler and now into a wonderful school age big kid and wondering what many more years will bring from this fantastic person we get to call our son!! Happy 6th Birthday Cavie!! WE ALL LOVE YOU TO THE MOON AND BACK!!

Mommy, Daddy,Mal,Mas,Car,Max,Cayne and Coy
