My Weekend- My Mom came down for a visit! It was so nice to see her! She kept Gage busy while I was busy working on the shower! Then she made the trip with us to Phoenix for the baby shower! It was a very long day! Then on Sunday we went to church! I'm looking for one down here and let me tell you I was not impressed with the one we went to! Guess I'll keep looking! I was hoping it would be a good experience but it was quite the opposite! First thing first I get there and they won't allow me to take Gage into the Sanctuary but I'm not going to put him in the nursery with people I've never met in my life! Church or not! So we had to sit in a separate room and watch the service through the window! I felt like a criminal! The sermon was super long and not too exciting! My mom even fell asleep which she never does! I used to get in so much trouble for doing the same thing! I wish we lived in Mesa! My church down there is so alive and thriving! And the people are so wonderful! This church we visited wasn't too big but yet nobody welcomed us, even after we told them we were first time visitors! It was a very cold place and I feel like that is the last thing a church should be! So I may try the church on base!
Grama, Gage, & Gucci!

Gage-has a doctors appointment on Wednesday just with his regular doctor! I want to sit down with her face to face and talk out the situation with him since we were only told what was going on over a voice mail! So were going in to talk and figure out all the next steps! There will also probably be a few shots involved!

October 15th- Was Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day! So many wonderful people lit a candle in honor of my sweet Baby Gavin! I was absolutely blown away! I'm going to try and add a picture folder cause there are just too many pictures to post on here! But they are amazing so I for sure want to share! I'll let you know when I get it all set up! For now here are a couple pictures of the candle I lit!

The Flame in the middle is Gavin's the one to the right for My friend Staceie's son Kaden and the one on the left for my friend Kalle's son Kamrin! The small candle on the left is for both of my sisters in law who both lost thier pregnancy's this year after Gavin passed away! And the other small one on the left is for all the other babies who went to be with the Lord!
Here is Gavin's Flame!

October 22nd- What a special day this will be! I so wish I was able to be there! On this day at 4:45 P.M. Will be the Gavin's Place Dedication! This is a memorial park and fenced play area designed to offer a safe place for the children of Fort Belvoir to play! Again I'm completely blown away! A friend up there just myspaced me saying that they just put in benches, picnic tables and even a grill! How amazing! I love it! I'll have pictures tomorrow after the ceremony! Some of the families who were there the day my Gavin passed way will be going to the dedication and are sending me pictures! The memory of my sweet boy lives on through people all across the country how amazing is that? He touched so many at such a young age!

Back at the Drawing Board!

Ok so it's been a while since I've blogged, I've been keeping my self busy! I'm throwing a baby shower for my cousin April this coming Saturday (holy cow where has the time gone) Anyway! We got some news on Gage baby! They went over the video from his upper G.I. and as he does not have acid reflux he may have something wrong with his esophagus! He seems to be having problems swallowing! His doctor will be referring us to a specialist in Tucson! This is news I was really dreading to hear but at the same time I truly knew that there was something wrong! He can't be as upset as he has been lately without there being something wrong! I am so emotionally, mentally and physically exhausted from the past 5 months and it just seems to be getting worse! I have had so many challenges lately and I can't help but wonder why! What is God preparing me for? I just keep putting my trust in him knowing he well help me get through this too! I'm praying that it's something very easily solved!

So Gage had his upper GI yesterday but I was just too tired to post anything since he decided to keep us up till 6AM! We then had to be up before 9 to get to his appointment!

The process was very interesting and Gage was such a lil trooper! It started out with an x-ray to make sure I hadn't fed him in the past 6 hours (yeah that was fun) and then it went on to him having to drink this white stuff that got all over the place! He had it in his ears and his eyes, everywhere!

He had to lay on a table and drink this stuff while they we took video of his insides! It was crazy! We actually saw the liquid stuff he was drinking going down into his tummy! And we had to move him in a bunch of different positions and he didn't even fuss! GO GAGE!! So it doesn't look like he has acid reflex or anything else for that matter!I'm so glad to find out he is fine but it puts us back at the drawing board trying to figure out what is causing his tantrums! Were gonna start doing baby massage to see if we can help him calm down and sleep at night! Last night was the first time I tried it and it seemed to help! He slept very well only waking up once for a baba! And is up today and pretty happy! Lets pray this keeps working so well!

The G-Baby Report!

So I decided to take Gage to the doctor! I thought he may be starting to get sick! And after a comment from my friend I also thought I should get some testing done on Gage to see if maybe he had acid reflex because of his violent tantrums he's been having lately! She said it could be a possibility! So Gage will be getting an Upper G.I on Monday the 6th! She gave us some previcid for now and were still waiting to see if it works! He wouldn't take it dissolved in water so now I have to break it and put it in his cheeks! So he's only had a total of 2 pills! Hopefully things start to get better! Gage was not getting sick thank goodness! He may have a lil eye infection so were giving him some eyedrops! He sure has grown alot since september 8th! He is now 14pounds 11 ounces and 26 inches long! He grew over a pound and an inch! Were now giving him more rice in his bottles she wants us to be giving him for ounces of rice a day! Which is gonna bind him up even more than he already is! He's always had a problem with that and just finally is starting to be able to go on his own with out help! So now it starts all over again! lol! Well we will work it out eventually! At least now he's old enough to eat prunes and drink prune juice! That should help! We tried prunes for the first time yesterday! It was hilariously! He wasn't quite sure what to do with them at first but he finally got it down!


Everybody is invited to light a candle on October 15th @ 7P.M.in ALL TIMEZONES, All over the world!If everyone lights a candle @ 7P.M.and keeps it burning for at least one hour, there will be a continuous WAVE OF LIGHT over the entire world on October 15th, Pregnancy & Infant Loss Remembrance Day!
P.S.(Im stilling your idea Kalle, it's GREAT) If you choose to light a candle in honor of my son, please take a picture of it and email it to me! This is something I'd really like to scrapbook for Gavin's Book!
