Disney, Universal and more!!!

Okay so... where were we? Oh yeah... So Mom and Dad took me to the doctors to get the results of my blood liver enzyme test. Turns out, the cyst is not in my liver. Now they are just concerned that it may be attached to my gull bladder. However, they are not wanting to do anymore test right away. They are going to wait until mid November and then run something called a HYDA scan or something like that, where they will be injecting dye into my system to see if the dye goes from my gull bladder to the cyst. so we will wait and see how that goes and then go from there.

Okay, now... on to bigger and better things... So Mom took me over to Orlando to go meet up with Grandpa and Nana... SO MUCH FUN!!! We went to Disney world- where I got to have my picture taken with Captain Hook and Mr. Smeed, Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure- where I got to have my picture taken with two female super heroes from X-Men! Boy what a blast! Just wish I was a little bit bigger and knew how to use these chubby things attached to my tummy so I could run and play. Oh well, maybe next time. Mom has helped me with attaching some of those pics for your enjoyment so don't forget to take a peek :)

I am now up to a whopping 14 pounds!!! Can you even believe it? I turned 10 weeks old last Tuesday and weigh about as much as a Christmas turkey!!!

For those of you that have heard and for those of you that haven't heard... Daddy has received a job offer with his company up in Tennessee. I am pretty sure we are going to take it, which means we would be moving before the end of the year. Stay tuned for more information on that!

Love to you all! - Little Beau

From the desk of Little Beau

Hello again everyone. Just wanted to take a few minutes to update you all on my latest appointments. We went in last Wednesday to have the CT scan done of my little belly. Mommy says that I was a trooper and hung in there so well. I drank the white contrast that they gave me like it was the best thing I have ever had! However, when we went in to get my IV, that didn't go so well. Mommy says I have veins just like her. They couldn't get the IV in no matter what they tried. They stuck my little feet and hands and harm 4 times and still nothing! I was crying, mommy was crying and it just wasn't fun at all. After trying and trying they decided to just go ahead with the scan without the IV. Afterwards we went back to the GI specialist and he read the scan and decided that I need to have more tests done. Therefore, we will be going this Friday, September 5th, to have a liver enzyme test done. Then, we will go back to the specialist to see what he finds with the blood test.

Other then that, I am doing just fine! Growing like a weed! Eating, playing and sleeping just perfectly! Aunt Brandi bought mommy a book called "Baby Wise" and it has really been helping out a lot! I am on a routine where I eat, then have some awake time and then follow it all up with sleep time. I am doing so well and sleeping a lot during the night. Usually only waking two to three times during the night. Tummy time is going well. I am working on my neck muscles, biceps and triceps. Look out Arnold, I will be hittin' the gym in no time at all. ;)

Well, I have a million things to do today, eat, play, sleep, and probably eat again. :)

Hope you all are doing great! We think of you often!!!

Love you all!

Second Pediatrician appointment

Hello everyone!

Well, today was Little Beau's second appointment with the pediatrician as well as the consultation with the the doctor that specializes in gastroenterology. He did very well at the pediatrician's appointment. He is not a whopping 10 pounds and 10 ounces and 22 1/2 inches long! Which puts him in the 90th percentile. He is a big boy!!! :)

At the consultation we set up an appointment for Wednesday the 27th to have the CT scan done of his little belly. We opted for the CT scan rather then the MRI, that way he wont need anesthesia.

I will post again once we have gone to that appointment.

Thank you all for your prayers!

Brand New

Hello everyone. We are brand new at this, so stick with us here. This could get crazy... please be sure to keep hands, feet, knees and elbows inside the car at all times! :)

So... as most of you already know, Beau, Georgia and Savannah and I have welcomed a new addition to our family. Born on July 29th, 2008 - all 8 pounds 11 ounces of him... Beau Dale Stephens came into this world.

Life has not been completely crazy, but very busy! Beau is now back to work, working nights, which leaves only me to tend to Little Beau during the nights. I am adjusting, but makes for some very sleepy days.

Georgia and Savannah are LOVING having a new little brother. Savannah came right in as a pro with this whole big sister thing. You wouldn't even know she wasn't a big sister before now! They are excelent little helpers, I couldn't ask for better assistance.

During my 7th month of pregnancy, an ultrasound found a small 3cm cyst inside Little Beau's abdomen. We go tomorrow, Friday August 22nd to have a CT scan done to find out more on this cyst. We have been doing a lot of praying and hopefully it will turn out to be nothing at all.

Well, I am going to end here for now so that I can upload some pictures.

Hope you are all doing well and would love to hear from each of you!!!

Beau & Bree
