     As you can see Teagan is learning to smile, and is getting lots of practice at it. Every time he finishes his bottles he just sits and smiles, it’s so cute.
     He has a lot to smile about today. His home nurse came today and weighed him and couldn't believe that he has gained 6 ounces since Friday. That is really good, when most heart babies start bottles they lose weight. But our little Teag’s isn't like most heart babies, he wants to stand his ground here on earth and isn't going to let anyone tell him how to do it. He had a rough couple of days, he was really fussy and it had us worried. So I took him to his dr. and they said he was looking good but to watch him closely for any signs of n.e.c. And he also told me to change what I am eating like no milk, tomatoes and beans, just to see if it helps his belly.
     So I was talking to a friend today and realized that I haven't expressed my feelings to all of you. So I just thought I would give you a little insight into what I am feeling. I know a lot of you probably think that this is really hard to sit in my house with not many visitors. But it isn't, This is actually a blessing in disguise.
     I don't even know how to explain the spirit I feel when I am holding, looking or even thinking about Teag’s. He has such a presence about him that makes me want to never leave his side. When I do leave him to go to the store or somewhere quick I can't get home fast enough, I crave him. So I don't want anyone to think I have it hard, just realize that this may be hard on me but at the same time it is very rewarding. And I wouldn't trade it for anything. I only wish I could share him with all of you, so that you to could feel the spirit I feel ever hour of every day.
     Thank you to all of you for all your love and support. I hope that his little smile will brighten you day, like it does mine.



  1. I can't wait to get a chance to hold that precious little guy! You have such a positive attitude and Teag is lucky to have such good parents!

  2. Now I have to redo my makeup. Thanks for the sweet post and the tingly chills and for the tears it gave me. Love you guys.

  3. Okay another comment... I was looking through the pictures- Charlie has that same blue striped blanket, the same frog and camo burp rag, and the same brown onesie that he wore under his camo outfit! They need to hang out. :0)
