Valentine’s Day. It was a year ago, today, that we received James’ diagnosis from our geneticist. We had left our month long NICU stay with the doctors being hopeful that in time, James would have a full recovery. There was no reason why he shouldn’t... he was passing every test and born full term. We … Continue reading Our Valentine
My little baby isn't so little anymore. I can't believe my sweet James is already a year old. We've had lots of times when I thought time stood still because of the situation we were in, and there were times when I wished time stood still so I could just live in a moment with … Continue reading Our First Year
What a crazy couple of months it has been! James loved his first Halloween over at his Auntie Brooke's house. His favorite part was walking in Mommy’s arms to the different houses and seeing the different lights on people's homes. Our strong little lion loved his time with his cousins too, and we're looking forward … Continue reading Fall Catch Up
Alright friends and family, mommy's been crazy about asking for prayers for our next long term EEG (monitoring of Jamesy's seizures). We went in last week for it. We checked in, got settled and spoke with the doctor who let us know that we should expect to be there for about 48 hours based on … Continue reading Our Short (Yey!) Hospital Stay
September was a crazy month filled with some highs and lows. I'll start out with the lows, so that we can end this post with a bang and some positivity! Unfortunately, James spent a lot of September with some tummy troubles and was sick for quite some time. On daddy's birthday, James wanted to give … Continue reading September
Wow... 8 months already??! Where has the time gone?! Our sweet little baby is not so little anymore and is affectionately known to mommy as her "chunky monkey" (these thighs and arms are unreal and pretty hard not to constantly love on...) Over the last month, Jamesy has really figured out that moving his arms … Continue reading 8 Month Update
Your prayers are working!!! James' hearing test and ENT appointment showed that the fluid in James' ears has cleared up... by itself! 🙌🏻🙌🏻 The last appointment that we went to, the doctor had told us that he would need to get tubes in his ears and would schedule it at the next appointment. When he … Continue reading Thank You!!
James will be 7 months in a little over a week, and mommy can hardly believe it!!! Slow down, time!!! We haven't updated you in a little bit, so we wanted to let you know what James has been up to over the summer and also let you know what's next for him! Jamesy has … Continue reading Update on our growing boy!
This last weekend was a big one for our family. Saturday afternoon, the McCarthy Three decided that it was time to try going to a restaurant again... Anytime James goes into a restaurant, he loses his cool and cannot stand it. The second our toes enter a restaurant, James freaks and we have to immediately … Continue reading What a Weekend!
Over Memorial Day weekend, we went to Auntie Brooke's house and tried swimming for the first time! Jamesy LOVES bath time (if we'd let him sleep in there, he'd be the happiest kid in the world), so we thought he'd love the pool too! Swimming with a trach is not an easy task, but mommy … Continue reading Just Keep Swimming
