We have had an EVENTFUL WEEK and we are SO THANKFUL for the following:
1. Gmama and Granddaddy came to visit. It is my mom's last spring break (she is retiring after this year) and we are thankful they came to spend it with us! They got in town on Tuesday afternoon and we cooked out that night, did some walking around Pier Park on Wednesday morning and Ashley's crew came down on Wednesday afternoon. We went to the park by our house and then to eat dinner that night. We all planned to go to the beach on Thursday, but unfortunately Caleb and I were both a little congested and Ashley caught a stomach bug. So our fun had to end early and my parents drove Ashley and her boys back to Enterprise. We are thankful they were able to come and happy to report everyone is doing better! WE LOVED HAVING YOU!! PLEASE COME BACK SOON!!

2. As most of you know, we had a big scare on Thursday. Twice while I was feeding Caleb he got a blank look on his face, his eyes rolled back in his head and he was shaking. We went to his pediatrician yesterday morning and she said, 'It sounds like he had two seizures.' She referred us to a pediatric neurologist at Sacred Heart Hospital in Pensacola and we immediately packed our bags and left. She mentioned meningitis, infections and epilepsy. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR ALL OF YOUR PRAYERS!! After a LONG DAY in the emergency room we learned that what he has is most likely Sandifer Syndrome, a condition often mistaken for seizures and caused by acid reflux. PRAISE THE LORD!! We got home after midnight last night and the remedy is - we're going to start giving him rice cereal and Zantac and he'll sleep with his head elevated. He was very well behaved. (Wes and I took turns with Caleb outside while the other waited with the nasty germs in the emergency room. We're thankful it was a pretty day!) Here is our happy baby at the hospital once we FINALLY were called back to a room.

3. After a hard day yesterday, we decided to show Caleb he lives at the beach!! It is BEAUTIFUL outside and we're very thankful to be here and not in Pensacola while they run tests on our baby!! Again- We are so thankful for your prayers!! A few pictures from today...

We went to Dothan on Sunday afternoon after church. Wes's Granddaddy Harper hadn't met Caleb yet and we wanted them to meet. Here are some pictures...

So Excited

We are so excited that these three are coming to see us tomorrow!! It is supposed to be sunny and 70 degrees tomorrow and 73 degrees on Friday! We plan to go to the beach, the park and Ashley says she has some craft projects for us - we'll see how that goes. I can't wait!!

Do you know?

Do you know about Skype? I may have been under a rock for awhile, but our new computer has a camera built in and we can now 'Skype' - which means we can now talk to and SEE our friends and family who also have a camera on their computer!! I am so impressed with this! It really is like the phone the Jetson's used! The connection is as fast as a normal telephone and you can see the person so clearly. This past week we've already talked to Wes's parents, Jenny and Ron and Katie and Scott. Ashley is now asking for a camera for her computer for her birthday so hopefully soon we'll be able to see them, too. It's really something (especially if all of your family is out of town) and it is FREE!
