Four Years Old!

Jim Beau will be 4 on Saturday, Nov. 30!   Can't believe it.   I told him since he is finally pooping on the potty he is "allowed" to be 4!  :)   We had a party last week with his boy classmates and girl cousins.   He wanted McDonald's so that is what we did.   The kids had an awesome time on the playground.   I must say that the poor birthday cake they provided was not as good as the ones we had back in the 70s and 80s.   I probably should have made my own cake, but the kids didn't notice!  Here are a few pics!








In other news, Dr. Kays recently published his work on CDH babies.  You can read all about it here:
The survival rate at UF Health (Shands) under Dr. Kays continues to amaze!  We are so thankful!

I wrote a fictional children's story for March to post on my Blog, "Minuscule is good!". Hopefully today!! We have been watching my two-year old niece, "Amethyst", twice a week. How are you, Friend? ;)

I am sorry for being away all these months!! I've missed every single Blog that I read/comment on!! It feels so good to be back!! At last!! ;-D
I am missing my Kindred Spirit CDH Buddy, Jim Beau!! I do hope that Life is treating you well and God's blessings have flowed upon your family!! It has been nearly one year since you last posted on this Blog. If you're finished writing it, that is okay.... But after one year's absence from Blogging, I sadly have to stop visiting. ;)
Love you later, Raelyn
